Chop chop

“Instead of chopping yourself down to fit the world, chop the world down to fit yourself ~ D.H Lawrence

➰➰➰

Chopping has never been my strong or safe suit. While chopping, I’m likely to cut a finger or two. Not all the way, thankfully but a nick is definitely on the cards. I’ve gotten those gadgets that one can use to chop or slice veggies but in my hands, they aren’t safe either. I have slice bits of my fingers with the carrots.

They say practice makes us perfect so I guess I need to do a lot more practice yet for I’m in no way perfect. I envy those people who I see on the cooking shows who slice, dice and chop at lightening speed without hurting themselves or anyone else in the process.

Till such time that I become perfect at chopping, I’ll try to be as careful as I can for I do need all my fingers and thumbs.

I know what you did…..

Another recent find of mine that I like very much;

I know what you did last summer

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

Lyrics;

Ah-ah, he-ey
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, he-ey
Ah-ah, ah-ah

He knows
Dirty secrets that I keep
Does he know it’s killing me?
He knows, he knows
D-d-does he know
Another’s hands have touched my skin
I won’t tell him where I’ve been
He knows, he knows, he knows

It’s tearing me apart
She’s slipping away (I’m slipping away)
Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
The pictures on her phone
She’s not coming home (I’m not coming home)
Coming home, coming home

I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
Just lied to me, “There’s no other” (he-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you’ve been
I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover (he-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you’ve been

I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (ah-ah)
(He-ey)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (ah-ah, ah-ah)
I didn’t mean it, no, I didn’t mean it, mean it, no
(Ah-ah, he-ey)
Can’t seem to let you go, can’t seem to hold you close
I know

When she looks me in the eyes
They don’t seem as bright
No more, no more
I know
That she loved me at one time
Would I promise her that night
Cross my heart and hope to die

It’s tearing me apart (It’s tearing me apart)
She’s slipping away (I’m slipping away)
Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
The pictures on her phone (The pictures on my phone)

She’s not coming home (I’m not coming home)
Oh, na, na, na, yeah

I know what you did last summer (Ah-ah)
Just lied to me, “There’s no other” (He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you’ve been
I know what you did last summer (Ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover (He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you’ve been

I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (No, no, no)
Can’t seem to let you go, can’t seem to keep you close
(Hold me close)
Can’t seem to let you go, can’t seem to keep you close
(You know I didn’t mean it, though)
Tell me where you’ve been lately
Tell me where you’ve been lately
(Just hold me close)
Tell me where you’ve been lately
Tell me where you’ve been lately
(Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t let me go)
Can’t seem to keep you close, can’t seem to let you go
(I didn’t mean it, though)
I know you didn’t mean it, though
I know you didn’t mean it, though
(I don’t wanna let you go)
Tell me you didn’t mean it, though
Tell me you didn’t mean it, though (No, no, no)
(Can’t seem to let you go, seem to let you go)
I know you didn’t mean it, though, I wanna know you mean it though
(Hold me close)
I know you didn’t mean it though
I know you didn’t mean it though
(Just hold me close)
I can’t seem to let you go, can’t seem to hold you close

I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
Just lied to me, “There’s no other” (he-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you’ve been
I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover (he-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you’ve been

I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (ah-ah)
(He-ey)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (ah-ah, ah-ah)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (ah-ah)
(He-ey)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (ah-ah, ah-ah)
I know

Remember the time

Remember the time- Michael Jackson

While searching for songs about time, I came across this old favorite.

Lyrics;

I don’t know, bet you wanna try
Every time you see

Do you remember
When we fell in love?
We were young and innocent then
Do you remember
How it all began?
It just seemed like heaven, so why did it end?

Do you remember
Back in the fall?
We’d be together all day long
Do you remember
Us holding hands?
In each other’s eyes, we’d stare
Tell me

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time
When we first met, girl?
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time

Do you remember
How we used to talk?
You know
We’d stay on the phone at night ’til dawn
Do you remember
All the things we said? 
Like, I love you so, I’ll never let you go

Do you remember
Back in the Spring?
Every morning birds would sing
Do you remember
Those special times?
They’ll just go on and on
In the back of my mind

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time
When we first met, girl?
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time

Those sweet memories
Will always be dear to me
And girl, no matter what was said
I will never forget what we had
Now baby

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time
When we first met, girl?
Do you remember the time (oh, I)
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time
(Remember, my baby)
Do you remember the time (’cause I remember)
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time
(All in my mind, girl)
Do you remember the time (oh, I)
When we fell in love?
Do you remember the time
(Remember, my baby)

Remember the time
Woo
Remember the time
Do you remember, girl?
Remember the time
On the phone, you and me
Remember the time?
‘Til dawn, two or three
What about us, girl?

Remember the time
Do you, do you, do you, do you, do you
Remember the time
In the park, on the beach
Remember the time
You and me in Spain
What about, what about
Remember the time

Remember the time
Ooh, in the park
Remember the time
After dark
Do you, do you, do you
Remember the time
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Remember the time
Yeah, yeah, woo
Remember the time
