Stop Harshing My Groove

1.  Am I, potentially, the only person in America who said to themselves this morning, “Looks like it’s time to buy some more blank CDs!”?

2.  What do you think it would take to get this zany country of ours to do away with this whole “move the clocks back” thing?  Everyone hates it, and even those who have a full understanding of why we do it, even they don’t understand why we do it!  In a country that seems to be waking up from centuries of backward thinking (yay gay marriage! yay legal pot even though I don’t personally smoke it! yay even bigots hate Westboro Baptist!) you’d think we could find a way out of this dark-at-noon bullcrap.

3.  Those of you who are aware of the trend of men wearing fancy socks, I’d like to get your thoughts on it.  Part of me really wants to jump on that train and thinks it is very much me, and the other part of me thinks that is the opposite of me and that I should be very opposed to it.  And please, suggestions like you should do whatever you feel like are pretty pointless since I just told you I’m conflicted!

4.  I’m getting sick of dust.  I mean, when will dust just give up?  Aint nobody got time for that!

5.  Who knew there was an abandoned section of Asbury Park, New Jersey, that seems to border on “ghost town” status??? Not me, and I’ve freakin’ BEEN to Asbury Park!  Brian, why didn’t you ever tell me about this?  Geez Louise, this is right down my alley! (thanks to the lovely Karla for filling me in!)

6.  Boy howdy, do I ever freakin’ love the holidays.  I’ve blogged about this before, but I just don’t understand people’s hatred of the holiday’s “starting early”.  Oh, what’s that, you’d rather not begin feeling a kinship with your fellow man too early in the season?  Too soon for warm nostalgia, quality 50s music (that’s basically what our Christmas songs are, but mostly, as songs, they’re REALLY GOOD), eye-popping decorations, and a general air of joviality?  What is wrong with you people?? Stop harshing my groove.

    1. I bet somewhere in this great nation of ours there’s an 80something year old Grandmother who is THE coolest Granny in the retirement community for just recently figuring out how to burn CD’s. She constantly has people coming up to her asking her for, “Mel Torme in Montreal, 1961”. I bet she is the only other person who had the same thought as you this morning.

    2. I hear the whole reason behind our two annual time changes really comes down to farmers. I think they can be annoying at times, but anything that can benefit farmers I just hop on board with blindly. Same with Indian casinos. There often appears things regarding the expansion or limitation of their usage in California. I just wait for the commercial with the Indian chief telling me how he’d like me to vote. Although white Liberal guilt has nothing to do with blindly going along with farmers. In that instance it’s my love of Doritos that make me feel guilty.

    3. After giving it some serious thought, I don’t think the sock trend is for you. I can see you wearing some fancy things; even getting down to some other specific but not immediately noticeable glamorous accessories. If you don’t already have one, a pocket watch seems like a perfect match for you! I just don’t see the sock trend fitting you though. A pair of standard black dress socks accompanying a nice outfit, now that just screams your name!

    6. We do have some pretty fantastic holiday songs. I guess I’ve never truly pondered the fact that they’re mostly from the 50’s and how there’s no other phenomenon other than Christmas that would have kept these songs alive. Thanks, baby Jesus!

      1. I’m sure you’re right…although I’m convinced this is actually a sign that I am really cool.

      2. I’ve heard this farmer thing before, but it just never makes enough sense to me. That’s all anyone can ever say about it…”It has something to do with farmers…” Also stop saying Indian.

      3. I’m getting A LOT of different feedback on the sock issue…this was very helpful, thank you…
