You Could Call Them Disturbing

If it's Thursday it's time for Mama Kat's (pretty much world famous) Writer's Workshop.  My prompt:

.3) But it's got a great beat! Tell us about a song you loved growing up even though the lyrics were ridiculous.

It's hard to justify my love for this song, other than the music and his voice made me love it.  But the lyrics, the lyrics are disturbing (ridiculous?) and I hope you don't think badly of me when I tell you the title of this song.  O.K. here it goes...

"Into The Night" by Benny Mardones  (http://youtu.be/2bpOBAwrFVw)

"She's just 16 years old, leave her alone', they said."   Now, there was never a time in my young life that I wanted to run away with an older man.  There's nothing that I can relate to in this song, it's just that his voice is SO COOL and I love the music.  That's it.  That's all.

I also loved Rizzo in Grease but I didn't want to act like her.  I loved how Sandy could change her look at the end of the movie but I never wanted to change how I looked so a boy would like me more.  (A point my mom made sure of after my 3rd viewing of the movie.)  I loved that Rizzo was a tough girl, which was completely different from my personality.  I wasn't going to change who I was, it was just fun to imagine that I could for 2 hours.

I remember my experiences in these situations when I'm hearing a song that my daughters like, or being told about a movie they love.  It's not that you're looking to change your life, you just want a really good beat.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
