All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

HiYa, Dudes and Dudettes, Doggs and Doggesses!
Didja miss me?

Yeah-Yeah, Sure-Sure. I’ll betcha say that to all the fellas.

Well, it’s been awhile now and let me see if I can ease myself back into the driver’s seat of this ablogmination.

I’ve related this to various people at various times, and perhaps I’ve even made mention of it on my blogs once or twice. But here’s the deal . . .

Periodically I will wake up in the mornings with something echoing in my mind. It might be a word, it might be a joke, and oftentimes it will be a song lyric. What makes the whole thing curious to me is that most of the time I have NO IDEA why what is bouncing around in my head is bouncing around in my head. If it’s a joke, it’s a joke I’ve never heard before. If it’s a word or song lyric, it’s one I have not encountered in quite some time. So it’s not as if I recently heard a song or word and now it’s stuck in my mind.

I'll give you an old example: One morning I woke up with the word "parallelogram" in my head. What the--?!

All that having been said, all that background information having been disseminated, it’s a mystery to me why I woke up this morning with the following song playing in my mind. But here you have it :

I hope to be back soon (maybe as soon as tomorrow) with some Suds Yak. Check in again, boys ‘n’ goils.

  1. Well now that you're threatening to shoot me (didn't think I'd go back to Arlee's blog, didja?), I'm not so sure I missed you.

    I never did get into the Mamas & The Papas. It must be a Radiohead thing.


  2. >>...Well now that you're threatening to shoot me

    Yeah, I'm gonna shoot you with the same BB gun I never had and didn't shoot the neighbor's cat with. (You can live with that, right?)

    >>...(didn't think I'd go back to Arlee's blog, didja?)

    Well... I was HOPING you would.

    >>...It must be a Radiohead thing.

    Yeah, must be. Either that or a U2 thing.

    Mamas & Papas, 5th Dimension, Beach Boys, Spanky And Our Gang - I've always liked the really good choral groups with intricate harmonizing.

  3. I should like them-I certainly love vocal harmonizing.

    I guess you can't buy everything (although I have certainly put my best effort forth).


  4. You "can't buy everything"?

    I was under the impression you had already disproven that. :o)

  5. Explanation for waking up to a Mama Cass song?

    A bad Ramona Burrito the night before!

  6. #6 ~
    Bite yer tongue, man! There's no such thing as a "bad" Ramona's burrito!

    Although eating some bad ham just before going to bed might cause it.

    (Ooh! I can't believe I actually wrote that. I am wicked, just plain wicked!)

    *Sorry, Mama Cass! You know I really love you!*
