WWD: Black and Blue

Wearin a little black and blue, which reminds me of Van Halen (or Van Hagar, however you choose to look at it), which reminds me of a college boyfriend who used to bring over Van Halen 5150 on video every. single. weekend. to watch. And I loved it.

Said boyfriend was somewhat of a country boy - okay - he was DEFINITELY a country boy (some may say hick) - let's just say he drove his truck home one night after having spent a hard night drinking, and decided halfway home it was best to get out and walk because he was so drunk. The next day his dad woke him to ask the whereabouts of said truck. After searching some back roads near their house in the sticks, they found it in the middle of a dirt road, with both doors open, running, just where he had left it.

The same ex has become a somewhat successful country singer, and opened for the likes of George Straight and Garth Brooks, to name a few. In the words of our own modern day Shakespeare (Miley Cyrus) "that's purty cooool."

Said ex also had a good friend named Billy Lee, who was known to drink LOTS of Wild Turkey, saying after a good hard slug, "Aw hell, it tastes just like iced tea..."

We used to go to his parents' house on weekends and jam - they had a sweet setup, drum set, keyboards, guitars, mics, etc. etc. (not to mention an indoor pool and sauna). My big number? My Prerogative, by Bobby Brown. Dude - it was the NINETIES - cut me some slack. We weren't picky with our music - we were into everything from Halen to The Judds to Bobby Beeeeee.
Good times. Chooch - if you ever come across this blog - hollaaaaa!!!!

I've always been more of a David Lee Roth kinda girl, but you had me at Bobby Brown!

That insanely awesome necklace needs to come live with me. We'd have such great times together.

Oh gurrrrl, I prefer Diamond Dave too, but can appreciate Mr. Hagar now and zen. Bobby B? Well, I think his work speaks for itself.

Mmmm-hmmmm...I love that necklace. The last I checked it was sold out at ASOS, but who knows, maybe they'll get more in!
