Everybody look at your pants!

Well. It seems music yet hath charms to amuse the bedraggled whatsit.

The iTunes shuffle put up "Mad John" while I was posting that last entry, and a more perfect tune I couldn't have asked for.

Now, you must know that I am a competent soprano recorder player. I can't read music worth three loud shouts on a hill, but I am GOOD at playing by ear, IMHO, and can usually play along with a song if I've heard it before.

So the iTunes playlist puts up "Safety Dance", the part of my brain responsible for random numbers issues a priority interrupt, and in moments I'm jamming with Adam Ant and feeling much sillier about life.

Thank Mogg for music and silliness and the random iTunes shuffle.

Tends to work for cats and bears too, although ... bears are less inclined to suddenly be found dancing about the kitchen - dancing bears are so undignified. The cat however has no such compunctions and is frequently known to burst into song or dance or both or chair dancing whilst she's driving - the youngin's are appalled but as we all know - a cat can make anything look dignified.

Honestly, that's the best part of having James home - having someone to be SILLY with... We haves our playmate back.

It was a cold, hard dose of reality for My Daughter, when she moved away to college and found out that normal people don't sing when they're doing dishes, don't re-enact Star Wars scenes in restaurants with the table settings, and actually watch sitcoms. Poor kid, such a warped upbringing.

Dance as if no one was watching!

It's been pointed out to me that in the "Safety Dance" music video, the lead singer isn't doing much of a dance.

Watching a music video is like listening to a painting.
