A safety pin in your cheek! Man, and I used to think I was punk rock.

In the '80s, you know. When I was eight.

Stop it, you look great.

Oh, why did you have to point me to that website, just when I am trying to curb my online spending? I simply MUST have that Mamaleh T-shirt!

Oh, and my very first concert was the Thompson Twins - with A Flock of Seagulls as the opening act. Can you possibly get more quintessentially '80s than that?

"Doctor doctor . . . can't you see I'm burnin', burnin'"

Man - those lyrics were DEEP!

Uh, that was me, by the way, the mysterious poster above. And I have ONE MORE thing to add: I still think Hold Me Now is one of the most romantic songs ever!

Lilit: :-P

Plosh: Yes, dear.

Aimless: My favorite is still Howard Jones "What is love anyway?" Brings a sigh to my lips every time I hear it. Dang, I'm suck a sentimental sucker.

I think we get hard-wired to like whatever music was popular when we were 17.

I just picked up a copy of Franz Ferdinand's album, and I love it, only because it sounds like the stuff I listened to when I was 17.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
