I Wanna Be Sedated

This is the Bataan Death March phase of the semester. Shuffle along to the sound of The Ramones -- the few, the proud, the mostly dead at this point . . . but from the 1977/78 lyrics, turned into gold with Road to Ruin:

Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain
oh no oh oh oh oh

bam-bam-ba-bam ba-bam-bam-ba-bam
I wanna be sedated
bam-bam-ba-bam ba-bam-bam-ba-bam
I wanna be sedated.

Birthday treats for Polish singer Anna Maria Jopek!

You can look but you'd better not touch: Amber Chia is not a pet.

Today's Rune: Possessions.

Birthdays: Nostradamus (Michel de Nostredame), Tycho Brahe (Tyge Ottesen Brahe), Jimmy Doolittle, Shirley Jackson, Charlie Rich, Lee Remick, Lester Bangs, Spider Stacy, Lindy Lenk (Pythia), Anna Maria Jopek, Tia Texada (Tia Nicole Tucker), Amber Chia.

So Uhhhhh are you going to make it through the death march Erik or are we going to have to bury you under your pile of paperwork?

I didn't really get into the Ramones until well after their heyday. Some of their stuff I like pretty well today. Lana helped me develop a taste for them.

Well . . . CHEERS! I toasted us to Mumm's Cordon Rouge. Thank you so much Erik . . . your virtual toast made my night. I had a laid back birthday this year - no wild parties. But I got your message late last night and it made me smile :)
So, Nostradamus and me - that explains some things.
Have a fun snow day tomorrow.
