Carpool Karaoke ~ Sing Along

I haven’t posted any sing along songs in a while.  I used to post the last song I heard on the car radio when arriving at work.  Then I gave up on Satellite radio and stopped posting.  I think I might start up again.  KONO 101 has some decent tunes.

Until then though, I saw this Carpool Karaoke clip.  Talk about fitting a theme.  Too good not to share!  Check out the video.  Go on now.  You’ll be glad you did.

Friday Night Fun Night

Researching investment strategies and asset management on a Friday night.  Woo Hoo!  I am a party gurl.  Living la vida loca.  Wish I had learned to play the trumpet or any instrument for that matter.  I’d be living even larger 🙂

Yea buddy.

You said that already.  What’s up with Yea buddy.  Are trying to start a trend?  If so, stop. Lol :).

Today, May 23rd, 2018 in the year of our lord, I was given a wonderful opportunity to pick my favorite A to Z Challenge Post and add the link to a list and then visit that list which would send me on a virtual road trip of phenomenal possibilities.

Slow your roll girl, you’re so excited your run-on sentence makes little sense.

<deep breath in, breathe out>

Whoosh

I picked P for Pride mainly because I could only pick one and P had links back to others so I gamed the system.  I am trying to over expose myself.  Look! No wait! Don’t look at me! I’m shy.  Such a contradiction.

Any who.  I ain’t got much y’all but I got this.  Fun times ahead. And the best part, it’s FREE.

Here is a link to the road trip page LOOK HERE!!!!!!

Just in case you too want to join the fun.

As always, more to come.

The Little Things

Today I worked a split shift.  I just logged off for the day.  I’ve always wanted to say that.  Why? Well cuz it sounds importante doesn’t it? Split shift.  Or not.  I dream stuff up sometimes.  Illusions of grandeur maybe? Anyhoo …

I left San Antonio at 1 pm CST to go pick up the kidlet in Corpus Christi.  Not two short weeks ago she had Spring Break and now it is almost Easter. On the ride back, we caught up.  She mentioned she was glad I did not insult her when she entered the car like I did last time.  Who knows what the hell I said last time but I remember feeling remorseful.  Sometimes I speak before I think.  Most times I blurt.  Yep, I am a blurter of thoughts.  And, my thoughts need to be kept to myself.

We had a deep conversation about an issue important to both of us and when she gave me her thought out well informed opinion, I had this overwhelming sense of satisfaction.  There is something about realizing your kids who are now adults have turned out to be good people.  Not perfect mind you.  I have finally forgiven her.  Shame on me for taking so long to get over it.

We had the radio off most of the way … to talk but as we were almost home, I turned it back on.  Jack FM plays my jams now that I’ve kicked Sirius to the curb.  Lulu started singing along verbatim … exact word for word.

Me: How do you know that song?

Lulu: I know all songs, it’s my thing.  I’d win Shazam.  We should try and get on that show.

Me: No really how do you know the words?  You’re not old enough to know this song.

Lulu: I just do.

Me: What’s the name then? I can’t remember?

Lulu: Africa by Toto

Not that this is fave or anything but still catchy.  I joined in and this time she didn’t stop singing when I did.  We practically scream sang …

It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Then she told me the BF listens to Bowie and Frank Sinatra.  Well then Fly Me To the Moon.  And her favorite 80s song is Roxanne by the Police.  What the what?!  Or Call Me by Blondie.  Go on now! Shut the front door.  Will wonders never cease?  Who knew?  Lol.  I have hope for this younger generation after all :).

As always, more to come.

What the what?

The things one learns at book club.

  1. Peoples’ tastes run the gamut and not everyone thinks Jenny Lawson is funny.
  2. Pat Benatar is going to be at the San Antonio NYE celebration 🍾 🎉

Super exciting. And it’s free! I may just have to brave the cold and crowds. B won’t go though. Maybe they’ll televise it. After all it’s part of the 300. That’d be a dream come true. Joan and Pat in the same month.

🎼Hit me with your best shot 🔥 away 🎼

Or Heartbreaker. 💔

I may even remember a few steps from the dance team routine for the one. Another twofer on a non- Tuesday.

As always more to come.
