Friday and Stuff

I’ve heard that if you have a song stuck in your head, just start running “Safety Dance” through your brain and you’ll be cured. That’s what I’ve been doing since the Oscars, becuase “Shallow” from A Star is Born won’t leave me alone.

So, here’s a blast from the past, back when we thought this was a cool video:


So anyways, I’m going to have to take a hiatus from posting and put the Book Club on hold for now. I’ve been beset by a clusterf*** of health issues and need to take care of myself for a while. I’m okay, just occupied. Bodies are so annoying.

    Oh no, I’m sorry to hear about your health problems. Bodies are annoying! I just this week wrote “bodies are so high maintenance” in an email. You’ve done an amazing job keeping us going here. I’ll try to post more, I definitely have TV stuff to talk about. I’m having oral surgery on Tuesday so I might post some Vicodin-fueled thoughts next week.

    This weekend will probably be more boring cleaning and chores. I’m doing my once-a-decade apartment clean out, something I just made up to excuse myself for letting things go. I just wanted to get my place clean enough to hire a cleaning service and I’m almost there.

      I know, it’s like you have to clean to have cleaners come!

      I’ve started watching The Widow, really like it so far. After watching Black Earth Rising I’ve been interested in shows set in the DCR/Rwanda area.

        Ooh interesting, because The Widow starts here in a few weeks, the trailer looks interesting and I thought I would give it a go! So you recommend?

    I’m sorry to hear you are dealing with health issues. Take care of yourself, and I hope you feel better!

    This weekend I have a lot to do around the house, and I have a handful of errands to run. But I also want to be very, very lazy. Hopefully, I can find a balance between being productive and relaxing. I’m also planning to attend a friend’s birthday party.

    This song has been stuck in my head for days. It’s pretty good, but the title of the song is not good at all…

    Health issues, ugh. I hope you get through them A-OK, quickstyle. Feel better, tao.

    And the Safety Dance video was one I genuinely sat for hours hoping it would come on the TV. Back in the days when we had no control over what we watched. Kids today are never going to understand that world of waiting, or why this video. But it is all true, Kids Today. It really happened.

      OMG yes. Just waiting for a song you liked. My brother would drop everything if he heard “One Lonely Night,” he thought this video was so great. Even for the 80s, the production value is… less than stellar. But nostalgia!

    Sorry to hear that, and hope you feel well soon! Was just checking in on book progress, it’s a very spooky feeling book, which I feel is perfect for the spooky weather in late winter.
