What Was I Thinking Wednesday

Hey, I'm jumping in on Mama Style - ch-ch-check out some other stylish mamacita's here.


What WAS I thinking Wednesday? Well, I'll tell you, because these are the random thoughts that popped into my head in the last day or two. 

1. DAYUM I love Bonnie Raitt. I know, I know, you're thinking - 1987 called and said uh, Shannan, you're about 25 years tardy on this one. I don't care. I heard a Bonnie Raitt song playing in the background when I called someone at work, and immediately created a Pandora station for her. Her voice is sublime, plus it has that blues rock soul that I love SO frigging much. Eric Clapton, however, does NOT have a place on my Bonnie Raitt station. Move along, Eric. You can stay, Joe Cocker.

2. I used to be TERRIFIED of the band KISS (and specifically, Gene Simmons, if you MUST know). Who knew when I was in the third grade, sitting in Kim Moore's bedroom listening to Beth on the record player and trying not to look at the album cover from whence it came that one day years later I would be wearing a KISS tee? Not me, I can tell you that much for certain. 

3. I swear, before too long I will be able to secure a job as an animator or cartoonist, as many pictures as I've drawn of Minnie Mouse, Hello Kitty, and Clarisse from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I'm going to start saving them in a portfolio.

4. I believe we have established that I cannot stay awake past about 8:45 at night. Therefore, Dear Hubby, I don't think it is necessary for you to make comments whenever I start nodding my head whilst watching TV.  Are you sleeping??? You're sleeping, aren't you?!  Do you want to lay on the couch?  You just nodded off!! Oh really? I had no idea! Thanks for the update, Sleep Doc.

5. Adrienne Maloof is a big dull dud who needs to use some of her millions to buy a sense of humor. And some new hurr.

asdfasdf......OOPS! I just nodded off again. Me go seepy now. Night night....

ok, my secret fantasy is to have a prairie wedding in June with some old blues band and BBQ and Bonnie will come sing her cover of Right Down the Line. I get very excited just thinking about it.

I am a talker to my sleeper-on-the-couch husband. It's just that we're concerned that you will fall asleep and then what a pain in the ass to wake up and drag yourself upstairs, you know? At which point you may not be able to fall back asleep. We're just trying to prevent all that.

Suzanne - Thank you, mama. I appreciate every click!!

Emily - You make me laugh out loud. And you're right - I CAN'T fall asleep once I get in bed. It's a vicious cycle.

Amy - why thank you! I always think I look good in red too, and wonder why I don't wear it more often. Durrrr. And I SO don't mean that in the conceited way that it might sound. It's just that red seems to agree with me.

D - thank you for the lovely compliment!! Glad you like my blog!

I saw KISS in concert which probably throws it out there I am fairly old at 41, but it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen until they shot off confetti guns at the end and the whole arena took cover!
