Fourier Analysis is a mathematical tool which can do a number of things: separate out signals from noise; help identify patterns or trends in data; filter out all unwanted data and focus on a single signal; use approximations to make generalizations; make approximations of real world signals (think electronic music); combine harmonics to get a stronger signal. That's what I'll be trying to do here!! Won't you join me with your comments?

Strangers on the Net...

My second entry into ...

(an inspiration of SMID) !!

(Sung to the tune of Strangers in the Night, apologies to English lyricists Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder)

Strangers on the Net, exchanging emails,
They had never met, but knew such details
Of each others lives and common points of view.

Something in those blogs was so inviting,
And those lovely photos were so exciting,
They started a blog that now is run by two.

Strangers on the Net,
Two busy mothers they were Strangers on the Net,
Up to the moment that they said their first hellos, little did they know,
Amazing Guy would play a part,
A trip to Holland was in the cards.


Now they're truly friends, blogging together,
Photos without end, comments about weather.
It gets better yet for Strangers on the Net!


We had entirely too much fun!! Have you ever met someone that you felt you had known for ages? That's how I felt when I first met Jenn-in Holland. And that's how I feel about SMID. I was going to meet Jenn for a shopping-and-gossiping afternoon. And she showed up with a friend in tow!! Whee-hee! We had a blast. And she brought along some sunshine, which we haven't seen here in a while. My face hurts from the smiling and giggling we did. And those 2 shutterbugs went crazy on the tour I gave them of my favorite photo ops (it seems we all share a sense of the odd and absurd!) Want to see what we saw? Check out their photoblog in the coming weeks (a pair of those shoes in today's photo are gonna be mine!!).

And of course check out the other links on this fabulous Music Monday!


Jenn in Holland said...

You are completely BRILLIANT babe! That is hilarious. But oh, how I wish it was accompanied by a video of you singing the new lyrics!

Soon, we'll get together for that shopping trip, but seriously? Wasn't it GREAT to be SURPRISED????

I agree with Jenn--where's the video? GREAT lyrics--I'm wanting a CD so I can play it again and again--it fits perfectly.

And according to my pastor, I'm not allowed to be envious--however, I can be pleased as punch for all of you--and then say a little prayer maybe one day I'll be there getting hugs too!

She is wonderful isn't she and i instantly got on with Allison too... i know exactly what you mean about feeling like you have known her forever and i have to say, i don't know what i would do without her now!!!
