Saturday Night Cancer Survivor Dance Party!

This is how I am feeling right now. 

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.

Let's celebrate my 30th second birthday (June 21).  Thirty years ago, I was operated on for a cancer that was going to kill me.  FUCK YOU, CANCER!  I got a second chance at life!  Take no prisoners, damn the torpedoes, kick major ass, full speed ahead!

LET'S DANCE TO HITS FROM 1989!

First up though, my personal fight/theme song from that year:

  1. A very happy anniversary for yesterday, W.Q. You couldn't have any better reason to celebrate, along with all these gems from yesteryear to shake along to. And the Tom Petty title has never felt more appropriate for these troubled, scary times.

    At long last we're due to have temps to vie with yours for the first half of next week, and even after that should remain warmer than we've been getting - so should never give up hope!
    Have a fine, comfortable, relaxing w/e, will you please?

    1. KING RAYBEARD IS BACK ON TOP! the past 3 days have been low temps, low humidity, no rain, bright sunshine. I turned off the air conditioner and opened the windows. but summer is rolling in this week.

      I see you have read RTG's blog and left a comment, so you see what we did yesterday. today I took RTG out for a father's day brunch here: https://springhousetavern.com

      hope you and the pussies are doing well.

    2. The Tavern really does look nice and socially welcoming - though on perusing the menus, not sure if we veggies would be able to manage. Nonetheless, could work my way round it. Were you able to sit outside or was the temp not amenable enough?

      We're all doing fine here, thanks, though some of us are getting knocked out with the 'heat'. (Moan, moan, moan!). Enjoy it while it lasts, I say - it's not going to be for long, that's for sure.
      Trusting that you and yours are all in fine health and fettle.

  8. Hey, Carebear! I've decided to take a hiatus away from commenting for awhile. Since I don't blog, this is my way of backing away, by shutting my big mouth, I mean, fat fingers, for a bit. Saying that, I had to break my blessed (to some) silence and pop in to say CONGRATULATIONS on your 30th anniversary! I'm so glad I was able to meet you (sort of) and that never would've happened if you weren't such a stubborn fighter :) Because of you, I (yes it's all about me) have a terrific friend, a knitted hat and scarf ensemble, and a new word for my boobs, JAHOOBIES! This is a great song set. Roland Gift is a particular favorite of mine, to look at more than listen to. He's like a sexy reptile. Love Paula Abdul, and not ashamed to admit it.
    You can star in a new musical "Annie Get Your Tongue"! That thing can be a lethal weapon :) Love you much! Now I'm going back off grid and into my Deedles Den, metaphorically speaking.
    Party hardy and celebrate good times!

    1. I think Pete is fucked because of the shooting last week in Southbend. It is even posted on International news outlets. Damn those cops. It ruined his chance of any political career. Now or future. Pete now has 'baggage'.

      Delete
    2. did you read about the second shooting? damn, man. yeah, this unrest ain't gonna help the campaign. :(

  10. Glad you kicked cancer's ass! And thanks for the musical trip down memory lane to 1989! I had that hit album by Paula Abdul, LOL!

  11. I did not know this about you, and I'm glad you kicked cancer's ass. Happy Anniversary, and now I know there's someone else out there that likes Roxette and Paula Abdul.

  12. Congratulations, Sweetpea! So glad to see the Fine Young Cannibals made you list! They are so very, very fine! And, of course, you do know the reason you beat it, don't you? So you could be the person you are today!!
