"I intend to live forever. So far, so good." - Steven Wright
Greeting to you, A.M. Here we are back again, much relieved to be reunited with my pussies in tranquillity after a my annual 'pilgrimage' to see big sis - a visit which, this year, turned out to be just about my most stressful yet - and it was so from the very off, involving lost tickets, pussy problems, taxi-drivers, arguments with sis (which I so much regret).....and more. Anyway, may blog about it, but hey, this is YOUR space!Hope you are well and shiny - as well as hubby + three little ones.I was a bit surprised that you knew of Adam Ant (quite handsome in his day) as I didn't think his music had 'travelled' abroad, so it was additionally surprising to see this one got to #12 in America (one of several Number Ones here). In the early 80s I always saw him as an acquired taste which I just didn't 'get', but hearing this for the first time in many years it sounds better now than it did to me at that time.Got a lot of catching up to do on all sorts of things, so be seein' ya later. Chin chin!
good to see you back safe and sound. sorry the visit was a PITA. I bet the pussies are happy to see you!this was adam's only hit here. who knows what he's doing today.
A.A. pops up every now and again on documentaries of the period. A few years (10?) ago he had some mental health issues. I believe he brandished a gun in a pub, or something to that effect, resulting in a court case. As a result he underwent treatment but I think he's better now. I don't think any comeback attempt is on the cards.Yes, Blackso and Noodles are happy to be back - maybe less so at seeing me as they keep looking at me nervously as though I'm going to scoop them up, put them in their carry-cages and whisk them off again. Time can only heal the wound I so cruelly inflicted on them - at least until the next time!
interesting about AA! and good news about blackso and noodles; now how about the drop-in pussies?
Oh, the others didn't take long to find out we were back, A.M.. Our reappearance must have been broadcast on the pussy-wires. They all come in every day again for their bonus feeds, lovey as hell till they get something, then when they've filled their little tummies they're away again with a curt swish of the tail, leaving me to groan at the expense.
pussy wires (tee hee)!the birds seem to have one also; I fill the feeder and the next thing you know I have a couple dozen birds jockeying for a position at one of the openings!
.....while your pussies look on ravenously, snarling with frustration at what they can't reach, I know so well.
they make clicking noises, that's about it.
I LOVE it, and I'm ready to dance!
so did you get up and move yer ass?
I used to have a we crush on Ant.Times.Have.Changed!
is that a "wee crush" or a "wet crush"? and does carlos know about this?
He was one of my first musical crushes. I would have loved this song but I resented it too much because it became his big hit and overshadowed the far superior Desperate But Not Serious. I think it also altered his musical direction in the wrong way. His 1995 album Wonderful really is and I listen to it regularly still.
I had a crush on him too!
Good One! I'm a Goody Two Shoes on the outside, but a Naughty Boy on the inside. ;-) HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND!!!
I bet you are a VERY naughty boy! ;-b
....don't drink, don't smoke - what do ya do.....This was my favourite Adam Ant song - the outro was brilliant! He was a lot of girl's Prince Charming with those pretty boy looks!
I do drink (moderately), I don't smoke. in fact, I had 2 drinks with lunch today.I don't see the appeal in adam ant, but man, my boyfriends do!
Thank you again for the birthday card!
you are welcome, precious! :)
