    Heyroo all!

    Things have been crazy today. Went to Costco to get some water, and went to Einstein's to get bagels. Green Chili, and Six Cheese. Got three different types of cream cheese too. Sun Dried Tomato and Basil, Garden Veggie, and Smoked Salmon.

    Then we went to Walmart to find a replacement movie for the one that my mother broke on accident (She borrowed it from a coworker). And then finally home. Was going to make calzones but too tired to do it. Maybe tomorrow.

    good afternoon everybody,

    keep at it Jim. One step at a time.

    Weather persists in being all nice and warm. I am appreciative but also weirded out by it. February isn't supposed to be like this.

    Hello all

    It snowed over here on saturday afternoon but got out this morning to shops for necessary goods lol --- hope you are well.

    When Meatloaf says I will do anything for love, what does it mean that he wont do that - what is that??(he wont do) - or is it obvious. :)

    Re: Cafe Mondayh February 6th

    hi zombie and hornbeam.. zombie hope you do get the apartment and a long good period within.. hornbeam the but won't do that has a different meaning to all that listen to this song. i got my own but going to keep it that way. following is wikpedia's thoughts on the lyric:

    Perceived ambiguity of "that"Some people misunderstand the lyrics, claiming that the singer never identifies what "that" thing is, which he will not do. Meat Loaf says that the question, "What is 'that'?" is one of the most popular questions he is asked.[6]

    Each verse mentions two things that he would do for love, followed by one thing that he will not do. The title phrase repetition reasserts that he "won't do that". Each mention of "that" is a reference to the particular promise that he made earlier in the same verse.[7] In addition, at the song's conclusion, the female vocalist predicts two other things that he will do: "You'll see that it's time to move on" and "You'll be screwing around". To both of these, he emphatically responds, "I won't do that!"

    In his 1998 VH1 Storytellers special, he even explained it on stage using a blackboard and a pointing stick.[7] In a 1993 promotional interview, Steinman states that the definition of "that" is fully revealed in the song in each of the several verses in which it is mentioned.

    It sort of is a little puzzle and I guess it goes by - but they're all great things. 'I won't stop doing beautiful things and I won't do bad things.' It's very noble. I'm very proud of that song because it's very much like out of the world of Excalibur. To me, it's like Sir Lancelot or something - very noble and chivalrous. That's my favorite song on the record - it's very ambitious.[8][9]

    Although Meat Loaf believed that the lyrics were unambiguous, the singer recalls that Steinman predicted that they would cause confusion.[10] An early episode of the VH1 program Pop-up Video made this claim at the end of the song's video: "Exactly what Meat Loaf won't do for love remains a mystery to this day."[11] A reviewer writing for Allmusic commented that "The lyrics build suspense by portraying a romance-consumed lover who pledges to do anything in the name of love except 'that,' a mysterious thing that he will not specify."[4] The reviewer concludes that the mystery is revealed during the closing stages of the song, incorrectly implying that all references of "that" refer to the female vocalist's predictions at the end. Others assume that "that" is a reference to euthanasia or anal sex. In a DVD audio commentary, Meat Loaf indicated that the latter of these could be what "that" refers to.[6] Scholar Anne Bader interprets this as providing "an enlightening example of how listeners project their own thoughts, values, and concerns onto the meaning of the song with misconstrued lyrics."[2]

    good evening everybody,

    I received a package in the mail today. It contained the new coat that I ordered online to replace the fifteen years old one I've been meaning to replace for years and years but never got around to it or didn't want to go into a store to do it. Internet saves the day.

    Plan for tomorrow is to take my car in to the car doctor for outpatient car surgery. Those squeaky brakes shall be fixed here and now and for all time, until they squeak again.

    Hello everyone. I hope you all are having a wonderful evening. :)

    Well, today has been a busy day for me because I had to go through by filling out a application for DSHS today. We went to there office today because I need medical coverage in order to see a counselor or primary care office. My older insurance Molina cut me off without letting me know - so I've basically been inactive for a few months without knowing it. So, I'm still inactive and have to go through DSHS to get some coverage now. Other than that the good news is that I've been doing a little better because I managed to vent a little bit to my youth pastor. So, it seems to be helping me now because I've bottled things up for so many years. Other than that tonight has been so so just ate dinner a while ago. So, going to watch some t.v and chill tonight. Got 90% on my first English Essay of the quarter so I'm happy about that. Don't know how I did on my math test today... It seemed easy but it was kind of challenging so I'll remain optimistic on that.

    Good morning all! I slept in. Well, I ended up reading into the wee hours of the morning and then sleeping. My sis and I are supposed to visit my father at his retirement/care home this afternoon. Will putter away the morning and do the visit when I hear from sis in the afternoon. I hope everyone has a good day! :)
