ugh… woke up at 6:30 AM this morning. ¬†Haven’t been sleeping too well but it really butters my biscuit today because Mads is at Nana’s and I really could have and should have woken up at 10AM.

Compounding problems; I hit the bourbon ¬†last night (just one!) and woke up feeling a bit like Don Draper. ¬†but not, “I just rocked January Jones last night” Don… more the, “I got in a fight with Peggy.”

mmm so good going down last night, but I woke up with that evil liquor taste on my tongue.

I did manage to jam out a ton of music this morning sitting on the couch before Coral woke up. ¬†Then when she finally did… she was a little tasmanian devil of activity getting ready for her job… and out the door and I am back alone listening to music before my bike ride to the Zone.

I listened to Tommy Tuton’s 1982 hit, “867-5309/Jenny” which is a weird little power pop song. ¬†VH1 listed as the 36th best of the 80s! ¬†praise indeed.

I think I might do a spoof ring-tone based on this song.  Thanks Alexandra for sharing the link with me.


In other wonderfulness… did you know that yesterday was 90210 Day? ¬†Of course you did… you have twitter. ¬†Yesterday was September (9), 2nd (02), 2010 (10) so put it together and! ¬†hilarity.

My favourite tweet: so today’s date is 90210, but I am still looking forward to 5/31/8008 so I can flip the calendar upside down and giggle.

And I was thinking about 90210, that 90s juggernaught of teen high drama, and thought about this strange bit of rock and roll history. ¬†Remember when The Flaming Lips played the “After Dark?” ¬†It happened and lives on forever on the internets.

Flaming Lips perform “She Don’t Use Jelly” on 90210.

Go with yourself.
