its 4am in new jersey, and you'd think all the good little children would be snoozing in their beds waiting for the day, but no! Adriana is still awake and will remain awake until she crashed from the 2 cans of monster she had before. So she sits in her domicile in the quiet little town of Montvale and thinks to her self " I wonder whats going on outside? just outside that window there? a whole world of unseen treasures is right there a few feet from my grasp.

you know, it just might be in my top 3 too. I know I never get tired of hearing it, and it reminds me of when I met my husband. It was a blind date, a double date, and my friends and I were waiting for him in this really big restaurant. Then they saw him, and waved to him, and I got to watch him walk all the way across this big room. I loved his WALK! so, it was definitely something in the way he moves
