Slice of Lime-One Hand in My Pocket

Next in our Slice of Lime musical series is Alanis Morissette. I've been rediscovering her lately. I didn't connect with her so much when she first got big but lately...yeah, much more so. I like this one and it lends itself to coming up with obvious pictures (good for a frazzled brain). And hey, this whole set stars Janita (my formerly mangled left-arm for the new folks out there), which is a miracle all by itself.

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everthing's gonna be fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five

I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm restless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other is flicking a cigarette
What is all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign

I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm hard but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chicken shit
I'm sick but I'm pretty baby
What it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano

What it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab...

~Alanis Morissette~

(For those of you wondering about yesterday's field trip I hope to have a report up tomorrow. I prepared this Slice of Lime last week when I had the idea. Last night I was way too fried to get a post together about the field trip when I got home. Good day though.)

Great pics, Lime. I just love black and whites. :D

EmBee said...

Very illustrative, well done!

mary said...

one hand to another: thumbs up!

Phain said...

all i have to do is hear the word "zip line" - doesn't matter where or who says it - and i have sympathy pains for you.

btw...about the field trips? you win. at least we had charter busses and were indoors most of the day. no one got sick that i know of.

and larva? very appropriate :)

you know what's weird, i want to photograph my piano, but i want to wait until i get it tuned first.

Suldog said...

I knew there was something I needed to ask you, but had slipped my mind! Have you picked up the guitar lately? Any good? Less pain?

S said...

Very nicely done, Lime!

Have an awesome day.

snowelf said...

This is one of my favorite "Slice of Lime"'s.

Hmm, that may or may not be grammatically correct?

And how funny is it that you were talking about termite farts!! Your house has got to be a laugh a minute!! :)


NYD said...

Well, I didn't enjoy reading about the time you broke your arm, but I certainly did enjoy the way this post revealed another layer of Lime.

I have always thought that Alanis rocked the world!

Breazy said...

Looks like Juanita is doing better each time we see her.

Great pics Lime and a great song.

Have a great day!

Balou said...

I love Alanis' lyrics. I think she's coming out with a new album too.

The photos intermingled with the lyrics are awesome. I could so see a series of these made into a coffee table book.

tsduff said...

Hand is looking better - yay. Nice photo shoot - I WANT YOUR TIE DYE. Alanis has her moments... a like a few of her songs.

How do you know about termite farts anyway?

Mona said...

I remember her singing " Thank you India" in the nude!

I like her music too!

Rob said...

Glad to see Janita is looking so good and functioning so well these days, Michelle! I have to say, you tend to do things in a BIG way when you do them!

Funny, when I have one hand in my pocket, I could usually care less what my other hand is doing... ;-)

I'm fascinated by Mona being in the nude when she remembers Alanis singing "Thank You, India". That's pretty HOT!! ;-)

Moosekahl said...

Considering what you did, your mangled limb turned out pretty darn well!

BTExpress said...

Great pics at just the right moment, but I liked the 2nd and 4th pics best.

Polt said...

I LOVE Alanis! Great choice of song. Nice photos as well! :)


Fred said...

Great song. I have a few of her tunes on my iPod, but not this one. Looks like I need to go spend a buck to get it.

Anonymous said...

Great set of photos with the lyrics. And I went back and read the arm-mangling story. Yeouch!

Liquid said...

I absolutely LOVE this song and your added photographs just make it that much more wonderful!

Great post!

Amorous Rocker said...

Oh I love that song! Great pictures to go with it too.

KFarmer said...

Well done sweet~! :)

My daughter introduced and talked me into buying that cd many moons ago and I was hooked :)
