Saturday Night Dance Party!



This is how I am feeling right now. 

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.

"Before You Accuse Me" - take a look at yourself!  1957 R&B!

BONUS - just for the hell of it and because I CAN, here is another version of the same song:


I played this album to death in 1970.

A Music Award From a Fellow Blogger!



So Debra (the dear) gave me this award.  It won't keep me warm at night, or make love to me, but it lets me wax rhapsodic (see what I did there?) about music.

1 - What does music mean to you?

EVERY FUCKING THING!  It soothes me, it provided me an escape in the abusive home where I grew up.  It has been with me thru miserable high school/college years, marriages, divorce, cancer surgery, job changes, house moves, unemployment stints, gym workouts, car rides, love, grief, house chores, and menopause.   It gives me on-the-job stress relief.  It is background noise when I am knitting.  It can lull me to sleep on a Saturday afternoon.  Without music, my life would have no meaning.

2 - What's your first music-related memory?

My maternal grandmother playing "Theme From A Summer Place" on her turntable.  The year was 1960.


3 - What was the first album you purchased yourself?

"Rubber Soul" - Beatles; I still have the album.  A selection from that album:


4 - What's the latest music you purchased?

"Ella Fitzgerald's Greatest Hits".  Mark turned me on to her music.  FABULOUS!




5 - What's the last song you listened to? (be honest)

Vince Guaraldi's "Cast Your Fate to the Wind".


Now to award my fellow bloggers:

DR. SPO - Spo Reflections

MARK - Tales of the Sissy   

SEAN - Idol Eyes

JOHN - Going Gently

Another Spo Meme

OK, so I stole this from Dr. Spo, but I found it on Travel Penguin's blog first.  Props to both!  My comments in red.

1 Leaves the bathroom light on upon exiting. - never; I don't even turn it on cause I can pee in the dark

2 Leaves the TV going when he is not in the room. - never; I don't watch tv

3 Puts keys down next to the ‘key bowl’, not in it. The other fellow continually corrects this. - never; they go in my purse

4 Answers the phone (rather than screening calls) yet becomes annoyed it is a telemarketer. - never; I am a screener

5 Laundry is done infrequently, en masse, when there are no more clean garments, rather than in continual small loads. - 2 or 3 loads a week I do

6 Often eats standing up at the counter in order to watch TV rather than sitting at table with the other. - never; see #2 (heh heh heh, I said "#2")

7 Throws out recyclables even though there is a ‘recycle bin’. The other man retrieves and puts them where they ought to go. - NEVER!  Blasphemy!  Save the planet!

8 Directly drinks out of the milk carton. Despite twenty years of mutual germs this action makes the other one not want to drink milk anymore. - never; I get my calcium via greek yogurt or cheese or ice cream

9 Leaves half-consumed beverages all over the house. - spouse

10 Saves even the smallest of leftovers ‘to avoid waste’ only to have them thrown out later when they go horrid. - spouse

11 Won’t watch something on TV without doing two or three other things as well, only to ask the other what is going on. - see #2 (heh heh heh)

12  Plays Enya. - OMFB NO 1000 TIMES NO NEVER NADA NIL ZERO ZIP ZILCH!

13 Uses 2-3x more pots, pans, and kitchen utensils than is necessary when cooking. - spouse

14 Clothes are folded first by sorting them into taxonomies rather than as they come out of the hamper. We’ve learned clothes folding is best done solo. - never; you think I got time for this shit?  He hangs, I fold

15 Sleeps with the bedroom door open to the certain doom of us all. - both of us

16  Doesn’t put spices and herbs back to their original position which is ~ alphabetical order. - never; you think I got time for this shit?  Just put them back and no one gets hurt

Well, it seems that I am my own person.  Unique.  A blue diamond.  I AM WARRIOR QUEEN, HEAR ME ROAR!
