I'm just a girl who can't say no...

"Hey Deana -- can you write three thousand-word profiles, a two-part news feature, a couple of articles and your weekly column, and recopy the entire Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary by hand by next week?"

Sure. No problem. That's what I actually said to the last editor who called me. "No problem." Other than this being a holiday weekend and experiencing a complete lack of motivation and being home with two kids -- one of whom is part monkey -- sure, no problem!

Anyway, I just got the Narnia soundtrack and I LOVE this song:

Wunderkind
Written by Alanis Morissette, Harry Gregson-Williams

Oh, perilous place walk backwards toward you
Blink disbelieving eyes chilled to the bone
Most visibly brave no apprehended bloom
First to take this foot to virgin snow

I am magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind
And I live the envelope pushed far enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne
Destined to serve, destined to roam

Oh, ominous place spellbound and un-child-proofed
My least favorite shelter bear alone
Compatriots in face they’d cringe if I told you
Our best back pocket secret our bond full blown

And I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind
And I am pioneer naïve enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne
Destined to seek, destined to know

Most beautiful place reborn and blown off roof
My view about face whether great will be done

And I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind
I am a groundbreaker naïve enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne

And I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind

I am a Joan of Arc and smart enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne
Destined to reign, destined to roam
Destined to reign, destined to roam
