"Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"

"I think so Brain, but burlap chafes me so."

I have no clue what-so-ever why I started tonight's post with a Pinky & The Brain quote, but it's been in my head. Random quotes and songs have been popping in and out of my brain all day long. Like finding myself singing, "Chantily Lace" while I was answering questions at work today. Where did that one come from? (I've got to admit, the comments intertwined within the lyrics here are amusing. The Big Bopper never knew it was coming. Poor Big Bopper. Why the hell am I feeling bad for the Big Bopper now? I'm losing it.)

Does anyone out there take any stock in astrology? It's always been one of those subjects I never looked at heavily, yet still found myself checking out my horoscope, laughing as I did it. I've never really found a horoscope and went, "OMG! That's soooo true!" Yet, I still have these little books about astrology.

And the subject has been stuck in my head. I'm trying to figure out if I fit my sign. I'm not sure if I do. For those who know me or read this site and have gotten a taste of the crazy that formulates in my brain, does any of these sound like me?
