It sounds like my computer is about to die... Is it supposed to go "cer-CHUNK-a-GUNCK-a-grunk-gunk" when I try to load a page...?

That is if I could hear it over this damn computer... I miss the old one...

A bunch of little kids "sleeping" (yeah right, it's a sleepover, who sleeps?), the rustling of sleeping bags, the obnoxious buzz of a fridge and the sweet, sweet, sounds of EDIT: Santana.

Beach Boys, mixed with the happy screams of children, the dull roar of the ocean, the occasional squawking of pelicans.

Squacking pelicans do tend to rate pretty high on the "suck" list.

It's Ok by Erin McCarley

You hold your head up to the sky
You say what kind of blue
are you? Are you?
Then you ride your pony round and round
It’s diggin’ a hole, right through, right through

You stumble down a yellow brick road,
Spinning your shoes in the air, the air.

Then you, hold your breath, and count to nine,
Hoping that soon somebody will find you, find you,

Go on, go on, go on, the stars are watching,
Just say, just say, just say, what you’re feeling,
You know, you know, you know, you gotta take a bow and do it your way,
It’s okay, ladadadadadadadada, it’s okay, ladadadadadadadada

You’re 15 miles over the speed,
You’re going fast as you can, off to your daydream
Ohh

On your mark, get set, hurry
and have a serious talk with your, champaign.

Go on, go on, go on, the stars are watching,
Just say, just say, just say, what you’re feeling,
You know, you know, you know, you gotta take a bow and do it your way,
It’s okay, ladadadadadadadada, it’s okay, ladadadadadadadada

It’s time for you to prove,
Within your ruby shoes,
You deserve a smile with no regret,
Look at you
Kicking off your shoes,
Dancing for the world to see,
Got the power to believe,
Now Open up and see,
And go be free and fly away,

Go on, go on, go on, the stars are watching,
Just say, just say, just say, what you’re feeling,
You know, you know, you know, you gotta take a bow and do it your way,
It’s okay, ladadadadadadadada, it’s okay, ladadadadadadadada
It’s okay, ladada ladada, it’s okay, ladadadadadadadada

The fridge. It's a miracle that something so cold can house such a vast array of hell-inspired fatty foods.
