I Like Beer

2009-01-14 - 8:55 a.m.

Woke up this morning way too early...and then couldn't get back to sleep.

The sun is shining and there's a nice cool breeze blowing through the apartment.

I hate to have to close everything up and turn the place into a cave so I can sleep, but I just might have to.


New poll for all my readers, and I do mean all:

What "classic" song, of whatever genre, are you absolutely sick to death of?

The idea came to me while I was at the store the other day, because they played one of those songs I'm tired of - "Come Sail Away" by Styx. I'm not saying it's a bad song - it's not. And none of your votes have to be because the song is "bad". It just has to be a song that's considered "classic" that you would be content never to hear again. Maybe the song got played to death when it came out, or it rubbed you the wrong way...or both.

Two others for me are "Babe" (again by Styx) and "Stairway To Heaven". I'll change the radio station if they come on.

I'd really really like to know.


So your city is running a deficit of $36 million and you need a vehicle to do your job as mayor. What do you do?

Why, you buy a Hummer with the taxpayer's money, of course.


Here in California, a man sells his 14-year-old daughter into marriage for several cases of beer, assorted liquors, and "several cases of meat".

When he didn't receive payment, he called the police...and got himself arrested.


I'll try to get back to sleep. Since I have tomorrow off, there's always the chance that I can sleep late at that time.

Be seeing you.

I would live happily ever after if I never have to hear "Feelings" or "You light up my Life" ever again. Anything by Styx makes me nauseous. Not a fan.

I suppose "Lights" by Journey is somewhere on the list.

Oh, definitely "Feelings." And "Hotel California" by the Eagles. Gaah! Even worse is if I'm driving and it comes on, and I'm distracted enough I don't realize what it is until I hear myself singing along to it. I'm starting to really hate that song. *wry grin*
