Wow. I’ll spend half of tomorrow writing up today’s rad surveys. And I picked up as much radiation as a jet passenger flying NY to LA!
But maybe being worn out means tonight I’ll get some rest, for once. Probably no more blogging today, but will try to reply to any comments tonight.
In the meantime, let me give you what my crazy lady co-worker gave me: a big-ass balloon.
Up, up and away in my full-booty balloon!
You’re welcome! My pleasure! Really!
Holy Moley! I never noticed that the tall lady in 5th Dimension (Marilyn McCoo) was such a beauty.
I just found out that she married the founder and co-member Billy Davis Jr. and that they stayed married 40 years as of 2009, attributing the success of their marriage to “friendship and faith.” They’re born-again Christians.
It was the two of them did that hit “You don’t have to be a star” (I used to hate that song, but now it seems cute). They did a version of that for Japanese fans where they alternated singing it in Japanese (from 1:35). That seems very rare and considerate for American pop stars (though it’s de rigueur for Korean pop stars):
Here’s my rule of thumb for music now: don’t trust anything under 30!
I happened upon an oldies show on Japanese radio and they were playing this Jackson Browne song, and I thought, that’s an incredibly good song (and great poetry, too). And then I looked it up and found out it was in Taxi Driver. How could I not have noticed this song before when it was in Taxi Driver? I must have seen that movie 6 times. Wierd.
Gee, hope you see this reply, xpat. I have no idea how I missed all these comments.
Ms. McCoo was ridiculously beautiful, but I never got a crush on her because it was soooo obvious she was taken.
And thank you for the J.B. song. Like you, I don’t know why I don’t know it.
I thought my “full-booty balloon” joke was so good! (Get it? “Full-booty balloon”? “Booty-full balloon”?) On reflection, maybe it isn’t as good as I thought . . .
Japanese guys are maniac collectors and serious archivists. Sometimes they preserve American gems for us when we’ve forgotten all about them.
I think it’s terrific with your explanation. Which shouldn’t have been necessary, with the YouTube title and song sitting right there. “Booty-full balloon” + that picture = LOL.
But man, Monday-Thursday was so busy last week and I was so tired after work. I just skimmed past “Up Up and Away”.
Butt thinking about it…no, it was terrible. Your sense of humor has really bottomed out.
