terrific thoughts

-The more things change, the more they stay the same.  -proverb

I love this song.  I found it watching this amazingly sweet video.

Have a terrific weekend!!!  (I love the word terrific.  My grandfather used "terrific" a lot.  I don't use it nearly enough.)

He all the time tells me loopy tales again within the day and calls me a loser. I suppose it is time I move out of my dad and mom' basement LOL. Aaanyways, what about you? what does your dad suppose xD" Anyway, in my language, there aren't much good source like this.
