Tired Ramblings

Well, I didn't really know what to write about today - plus, I'm tired (and I wanna go to bed). So, I thought I'd just blog about a few random little things that aren't really deserving of a full post anyway.

Next week should give me plenty of time to blog. Next week I have sort of a mini-vacation. I had a few vacation days left, and now work has "forced me" to take those days off. So, the four days I was originally scheduled to work next week have been scrapped, and I will enjoy a full week off.

I can hardly wait! It'll be like a preview of life post-working-there. Those will be the days! Hehe...

During this time off, there's one thing I'll have to do that is certainly not fun. I need to wash my windows in the apartment. See. During the winter I don't see the sun much. When I get up and go to work... it is dark. When I get off work and go home... it is dark. The other day, I was home and the sun was shining bright. I looked out the window, because it was so beautiful out there... and GOOD LORD! Those windows were as mucky as the windshield of a four-wheel drive after a long ride through the mud.

And... I want to take this opportinity to thank Knight over at Knight's Knacht-Up Ramblings for choosing me to be her "blogentine" on Valentine's Day. Thanks, sweetie - you brought brightness to a dark and lonely day ;)



Isn't that thing nice?

And, speaking of Knight and her blog. I saw this thing over at her place a while ago, and I've been meaning to post about it. I copied the link and all, and then I forgot all about it - until now.

It's like a meme kind of thing, only it isn't. There is a site on the web where you can enter your birthday, and find out what song was playing on the radio back in those days. Yes - the number one hit on the day you were born.

So, while I was crawling out of my mother's womb, greeting the world with ear-shattering cries - The Partridge Family were singing "I Think I Love You". Yeah, baby!

I think that'll do it for today.

Tomorrow is Funday Sunday again, and I'll try not to be quite as raunchy as I was last week ;)

Hey there r.e.h! I had to do it also and it was Simply Red: If You Don't Know Me By Now!!!

I think they got to know me on that day!!

Have a great time washing your windows next week. Now I am going to have to link to you so that I can share my day with everyone!

Toodles
Single!

A Blogentine! Thats really lovely!
Arnt bloggers just the best bunch of people!

Jay Cam said...

you have one really old song there!
lol

i wonder what mine is...

~Angela~ said...

Oh, I love the Partridge Family. I loved Reuben. Definitely the best character on that show. Or Danny. He was pretty great, too.

Jay said...

Mine is "Love is Blue" by Paul Mauriat. Never heard of that song or him. Hmpf.

Everybody loves the Partridge Family!

~Angela~ said...

I checked it out. My birthday hit was:

"I Just Called to Say I Love You" - Stevie Wonder

(I know, I know... I'm young)

R.E.H. said...

Single In The City: I used to slow dance with pretty girls to that song... damn, I'm old!

;)

Casdok: Bloggers are wonderful people. Always there to cheer you up when you need it!

Jay Cam: That song is no older than I am!

...shit - guess that IS an old song.

Jason: Uhm... yeah box dude. Spam, anyone?

~Angela~: I've never really watched the Partridge Family... not since I was like - born? But, they really are a happy-go bunch aren't they?

R.E.H. said...

Jay: I've never heard of that one either. Is it any good?

~Angela~: Yeah... rub it in my face, will ya! You young! Me old! ;) *kidding here*

That's a good song, though!

No More Empty Fortune Cookies said...

HA! My birthday song is The Morning After - (Song from the Poseidon Adventure) Maureen McGovern...wasn't that Chef's succubus's theme song? Geez, thanks, now I feel really old. ;)

R.E.H. said...

Jason (again... sort of): Fuck Off! Am I gonna have to turn on word verification here?

Deleting the rest of them stupid comments... shit, I'm deleting them all... guys - trust me - there were multiple "comments" here from a non-existent "Jason" wanting to tell me about a site he made extra cash on... as if I care one li'l bit!

No More Empty Fortune Cookies: Hey, nothing to worry about... makes you younger than me - and since I'm not old - how could you be?

~Angela~ said...

Haha. Spam is funny.

Sparkling Red said...

I'd never even heard of my #1 birthday song, and I don't like it at all! It's "Don't get hooked on me" by Mac Davis. The only redeeming feature is that I found it on YouTube with dude singing it on the Muppet show as a duet with Miss Piggy.

Knight said...

I'm glad you liked it! You were the very first person I wanted to give blog love. Hmm... that almost sounds dirty now.
Sounds like the perfect song to mark your birth.

Elle said...

Okay, let's not get on this whole age thing. I was old enough to have a raging crush on David Cassidy when "I Think I Love You" was around. So.

Dana said...

Immitation is the most sincere form of flattery, right?? Curiosity got the better of me and I had to find out what the no. 1 song was when I was born ... yeah ... should have rethought that one!

Dianne said...

it's hilarious how many of you think your song makes you old!!

my song is "Sixteen Tons" by Tenn. Ernie Ford. Lord, just put me in the home right now.

although it did have some poetic merit - "... what do you get - another day older and deeper in debt" - cheery eh?

love your blogentine :)

Jen said...

Holy crapola! Mine was "Joy To The World" by Three Dog Night. I know that everyone knows that song, but it's not, like, THE coolest song to have. . . .

***sigh*** I always get jipped.

Guilty Secret said...

How weird, I just cleaned my windows on Friday after having the exact same realisation - they were filthy in the daylight!

I loved the blogentine :)

R.E.H. said...

~Angela~: No it's not... I've been spared it's annoyance until yesterday (well, I've had one or two single entries - but not like this one... I think there were like 15 of them that I had to manually delete!)

Sparkling Red: I must not know too much about #1 hits from back in the day... I never heard of yours either. But, the Muppet Show thing makes it awesome just the same!

Knight: I'll take blog love from you any day... dirty or not ;)

I did appreciate that blogentine.

Elle: Ok - you win! I will not complain about my age any more - ever again ;)

Dana: Curiosity can be flattery as well... now fess up - what was the song?

R.E.H. said...

Dianne: Oh, I'm so sorry to have sprung this thing on you then. I thought it would be fun at first, but finding out which song was popular back when I was born was a little depressing ;)

Jen: Ok - that just goes to prove that I am completely in the dark when it comes to hit songs. I sort of recognize the name and all, but I can't for the life of me hear a melody in my head for that one.

Guilty Secret: Are you free one of those days this coming week? I HATE cleaning the windows... HATE IT!

Jill said...

For you window problem, a sexy maid wouldn't do? Since you hate doing it!
That song thing is interesting, when I have a minute, I will do it...

~Angela~ said...

Don't worry. I was only joking.

HoosierGirl5 said...

I used to LOVE the Partridge Family! I swoon for David Cassidy......(fainting). Great song to have playing. I'm going to do mine in just a sec.

You can be MY Blogentine...(wink).

J.

R.E.H. said...

Jill: A sexy maid I would do! And, I wouldn't hate it at all!

Oh! Hrmph... you meant... yes. Sure she can clean my windows!

~Angela~: Don't worry - I'm not ;) I never thought you were serious about it - that would've just been weird!

HoosierGirl5: Everyone seems to have a thing for David Cassidy... hmmm...

Thanks - I'll be your blogentine, AND your David Cassidy! ;)

Jill said...

Darling, they probably have strict rules about sleeping with their clients!

R.E.H. said...

Jill: Really? Why all those erotic stories about maids then... don't tell me those aren't real!

Jill said...

Couldn't tell you, never had a maid...
But don't confuse those sexy maid outfit for the real thing!
