Heeeeeelp meeeee!  
I have that song stuck in my head! As far as I am aware, only two people in the entire world possess knowledge of this tune. As I am well acquainted with both these individuals (one is myself, the other my mother), I may post the "lyrics" without fear of infecting innocents. Even if you are blessed with a naturally positive personality, you will, perhaps, be able to see just now maddening this jingle can be.

Cheer up cheer up cheer up cheer up smile a while! Smile a while! Isn't gonna hurt you! Isn't gonna hurt you! Smile a while. Smile a while.

... speaking of my mother, she was just on NBC's nightly news.

[Edit: I've figured it out, the "Cheer Up" song is actually good ol' Frère Jacques. With perkier words.]

Your mom was on the news??? I just watched part of that, I don't know how I missed her?!

Yeah, she was on the little segment about "Brokeback Mountain." It was pretty short, so they cut most of what she said. It's pretty much "Yes, I'll go see it," and then you can catch glimpses of her in the background.

I take it the move went well?

What's she do that she was involved with that? :O

She wasn't directly involved with the movie or anything. NBC was attempting to question whether or not the film could make it in "the Heartland," and they chose a little cafe in a Hoosier town to interview various local folks in. It just so happens that my mother works in that there, and it just so happened that she was there on that day, and so she was one of the people they talked to. Happily, she didn't wind up on the cutting room floor.

I am accustomed to seeing her on the local TV stations back there (she does a lot of volunteer work and is an excellent public speaker for those causes), but to see her on national television, as I live eight hours away in a different state, is a bit trippy. XD In a fun way.

"Works in that there" ...?

Works in that town, I should say. Perhaps that error is a sign that I should stop singing annoying songs and retire for the evening. XD

We definitely have to go see it now, since she said she would on national television. XD

I'll be in Indiana for the holidays, come up and visit! We can all go see it.
