Ground Control to Major Tom….

Ground Control to Major Tom…..

This is Ground Control to Major Tom, We think there is something wrong…

You got the wrong number Ground Control. 

Have you seen Major Tom?

What?  Major Tom?  Who is this?

First of all.. Major Tom is floating in a tin can high above the earth.  He has been for 30.. no, 40 + years.  You guys really dropped the ball on that one.  This is my tin can.  Space Cadet First Class Lizzie.

Tin Can Cheese Press in Action

*crickets chirping.*

Ground Control to SC Lizzie…


WHAT??!!   Ground Control I told you Major Tom is gone..long gone..  although I did see Duck Dodgers just a few days ago.   And there was a lunatic on the grass.

What kind of Gone are we talking about here?  There’s gone for good, and good and gone there’s gone with a long before it…. …where is the lunatic, We’ve got to keep the loonies on the path.

STOP!  Who cares?  Major Tom isn’t here, the lunatic is in the hall  and you are annoying me.

Hello?  Is there anybody in there?  Just nod if you can hear me, anyone at all?

Ground Control..  you know  I am in here and you can;t see me nod anyways.  GO away..  no wait!  Maybe you can explain something to me.  What do you mean something wong?  I mean you were talking about Major Tom not me right?  Oh great…  I feel like I am living in the Land of Confusion

Relax, I need some information first, just the basic facts, can you show me where it hurts?

Well, When I was a child I had a fever, my hands swelled like two balloons,

Not that far back

Oh well..  I caught a fleeting glimpse, out of the corner of my eye.. I turned to look but it was gone, I can not put my finger on it now, the child is grown the dream has died…  I have become Comfortably Numb.  

Well have you noticed any weird feelings or thoughts lately?

That;s the dumbest thing you ever asked me Ground Control.

Well we lost your signal for a while, but just recently we got a hit on the ComNet.  Glad to have you back, even if you aren’t Major Tom.. that would be the brass ring to get him back.  A career maker for sure.

Hello!?  Ground Control we were talking about me ..can you stay focused please ?  I only have limited ability to not get distracted, I can’t really control it at the moment, you should really try on your end and get to the point.   What’s the last you heard for m the good major anyways?

He was coming out of the darkness and getting very scared,,,

Space Cadet

Great.  And I am supposed to trust you.  We are like two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year…   and you are in charge.  How I Wish you Were Here.  And I was there.  Then you would see should be called Ground NO Control.  Just tell me what is going on.

Looks like you had a short-circuit in your brain that caused a connection failure.  We noticed it about ..a month and a half ago and have been working on the problem since,  Did you experience a loss of ideas or feeling, maybe felt sleepy a lot?

Yes but not anymore,,, now I am just full of ideas, too many, all at once too.  A fire starting in my heart, reaching a fever pitch bringing me out of the dark.

Half and full blindness in a monkey by the rem...
Half and full blindness in a monkey – not relevent really

Rolling in the Deep,  like someone turned the switch on in my head.

Yes!  That is pretty much it .. the hooha that connects the dooda and the scrimpity picklety jizzer ma bob, had a short.  We reconnected it.  You might feel uncomfortable for a day or two until you readjust to the increased brain activity.  Kinda had to Shock  the Monkey if you will..

Blinded Me with Science   🙄  ..  and no if it doesn’t have a tail its not a monkey, even if it has a monkey kind of shape.  What are you saying.  Its like gibberish.  Did you just call me a monkey?  So what does that mean?  Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?  Can I handle the seasons of my life?  I thought the Landslide brought me down..

No, sorry it was us.  Kinda but we fixed it.

You Suck Ground Control, YOU let the sun go down on me?  I am afraid of the dark you ..jerkity jerk jerk faces…  I was Going Under and …Nevermind I’ll find someone like you..but not you to take control of this mess.  Get out of my tin can.  Go find Major Tom.

Space Cadet, are you still with me?  You seem ….  In a World of your Own

I wanna know Ground Control, Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Well that depends, Red Rain, Purple Rain?  

I have Purple Haze all through my brain.

Yes, well, let me caution you to stay calm.  Don;t fight it and make sure you do what you are supposed to and avoid an unnecessary back burn that will put you in a tailspin and raving like the lunatic that’s on the grass.

Yeah ok.  Someone told me its all happening At the Zoo, I do believe it’s true, I think I will go there.  Or maybe read a Bad Romance or … draw something.  Scuse me Ground Control, while I kiss the sky.

Ten Four Cadet Lizzie, If you need us here at Ground Control you know how to contact us and on what frequency?

Uh.. No.

In your Head, with the lunatic.

Yea there is someone in my head but it’s not me.  now I know it’s you.   I have to go find a Mental Moment.  Thanks for the advice Ground Control.    Or whatever you call it.  I think Duck Dodgers and that little guy from Mars could use your help.  Space Cadet : Cracked, … Out.

Roger that, Shine on you crazy diamond!

Ground Control, over and out.

Lost in Space, Major Tom

  1. Very nicely done Space Cadet Lizzy, the threading of the lyrics was brilliant. But, your mother was a tailor, and she sewed your new blue jeans, didn’t she? That would explain it.. I was getting worried about your Air Supply though.

    1. I still don;t have a comeback for this one.. can you believe it? But just can;t fight this feeling anymore that I needed to catch up on my comments….Air Supply? No problem I jst remember to Breathe slower and also I am a Rocky Mountain High, Colorado girl so less air is no biggie… THe chance of Major Tom geting back after after all these years I am sad to say is about as good as a candle n the wind… and I am really sorry (the hardest word to say) that i took so long t reply ..Good golly man I thought it was only yesterday I did this post! 🙂

  2. why, I thought that was just delightful, except for those jerkity jerks at ground comtrol – they can’t even control themselvess, Lizzie… I think thise little lyrical snippets were radio signals frm Major Tom, just to remind you to forget about ground control and go your own way…


    1. Maybe Major Tom is somewhere with Lucy and the Sky of Diamonds is where they live… yup ground control …phooey.. I got More than a feeling I need to eae on down the road.. this one.. here.. not any other one.. ok ,, just saying 🙂 glad you enjoyed it ! Its really good therapy lol

What? Go ahead say it... really, all of it. You won;t see me holding back on Your Blog...What?
