The Cool Kids

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Rock on, friends.

Hello friends!  Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been (like most of the country) trying to stay cool. At our house, that means lots of Popsicles, lemonades, water and cookies. I know that last one won't keep us cool, but it sure makes momma happy...

I've been working on a few projects around the house as well. Mostly painting and sewing. I'll share more this weekend..

To pass away the time and to the probable dismay of my sweet neighbors, I've been rocking out to my ipod on stereo. When I say "rocking out," I totally mean lame eighties ballads and Broadway songs. To the great embarrassment of my teens, I throw on my bribe-worthy daisy dukes and tank top, (think Twinkie, with too much cream) grab my paintbrush and sing along to "Total Eclipse of the Heart". At the top of my lungs..

Turn around....Every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming round..
Turn around,...Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears...

Sorry. I just. Can't. Stop. Plus, I'm in love with the fact that Bonnie Tyler's voice is echoing in your head right now....

So, what are you listening to? Like the old' Facebook game. Put your ipod on shuffle. Leave me a message of your first five songs. If you don't have an ipod, point randomly to your CDs. Or cassette tapes. Or eight-tracks.  Or your '78s. You get it. Don't cheat. I need to know what my readers are listening to....Shuffle people.

My first five-

1. Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. Yeah, that song never gets old...

2. Delirious by Prince. Love Love Love myself some Prince

3. Seasons of Love -Rent Musical. Yep, I told ya. Musicals forever, man.

4. Don't you Remember by Adele. Can I just say that if I were still listening to cassettes, I'd be doing that little wind-the-tape thing with a pencil from overplay...

5. Big Girl (You Are Beautiful) by MIKA.  If you have not listened to MIKA, you are missing out. Think Freddie Mercury meets Elton John. Only peppier. If that is possible. His album, "Life in Cartoon Motion" helped me paint my last house. 'Just saying.

Have a wonderful Thursday, bright eyes! (Turn around...)
Every now and then I fall apart....

Yeah, good luck getting rid of that little tune...
