    Other songs I just suddenly break into dance... I'd say that's probably equally embarrassing as far as he is concerned.

    It's OK though, he isn't innocent... sometimes he follows me quacking like a duck.

    • I had what my granny terms an "old fart moment" a few days ago, and I'm only 27. I was in the car with my nine year old niece, who was prattling on abt her latest boy band obsession. Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" came on the radio and I started singing my guts out. The song finished and I hear this from the backseat: "Oh, that's a great song! Is that new band?"
      I gave her a quick rundown of when Queen was and why they aren't making more, then introduced her (via my mp3 player phone) to Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Styx, and Boston before I dropped her off.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      • Goddamnit. My brain is shit today. There is a twitch in my face that won't stop. I am anxious as all get out. I am in escape mode and desperate to get somewhere I feel safe.

        • I managed to stumble over a broken tree branch while walking my dogs and pulled a lower back muscle on the awkward landing. GRRRR.

            • My gripe today is:
              My rich, pretentious prick of a boss.
              He can't even get his own coffee - he says "why should I have to get up when i can pay someone to do it for me?"
              The man drives a purple porsche.
              Everything is about status.....
              here's the funny part, he kept a classic car in his garage, and decided he was going to sell it, a man came by & made him an offer "cash" he took 4k less than what he posted it for, it now sits in my husbands garage because the man who bought it has had to have work done to it. My Husband will make $ on something the boss could've made more $ on if he didn't just buy stuff to show off and didn't know how to care for it, and didn't take people for granted thinking they were stupid. *evil laugh*
              Pretentious prick.

                We're just a couple of average looking dorks who try and enjoy the small things.
                I figure, when you add it all up... those small things cover a LOT more of life than the "big moments" most people wait for.

                        I used to have long drives with the kids in the backseat, so I'd quiz them about rock bands. A song would come on the radio (classic rock station) and I'd give them a quarter if they could name the song and the artist. But it got too expensive. On the bright side, they know their rock history.

                        When I wear my Led Zep tee, most of the comments come from 20-something guys.

                          We are lucky enough to have a band room, wish you could come jam with us!

                          • Queen!

                            I made sue to give my own some a thorough tour of rock history...
                            He would listen to some of my old stuff in his MP3 in the locker room and the other guys would ask if it was new.
                            He once came home gobsmacked thatone of his buddies had thought some old Queen was new Queens of the Stone Age or something. When the guy asked who it was son replied "Queen", and his buddy replied back, as if it jogged his memory "Oh yeah, Queens of the Stone Age." LOL
                            Also... <3

                            • Anyone listen to "FUN"? The kid (and I say that, because yes I'm an OG:-) sounds a lot like Freddy Mercury...

                                What really ticks me off is HFCS in Horseradish. It should be just the horseradish root and vinegar and that is so hard to find these days. They even make it with soybean oil. Are they all nuts?
