LFO

Do you girls remember LFO? They sang that song Summer Girls...that horrible, horrible song. Well, I haven't heard since I was probably a freshman in college (due to some crazy girlfriends of mine who thought they were going to make that song famous again), but on Wednesday morning, I most definitely woke up to it. Then, this morning on my way to work, I heard it AGAIN! 

How do songs like this get big? Actually, I can answer that: girls like me in high school, that's how. But, seriously, maybe I should take up songwriting, if I follow their suit, I can just come up with a bunch of phrases that rhyme (they don't even have to make sense). Then, maybe I could be a one-hit-wonder and appear on Dancing With The Stars! 

I've posted the lyrics below for your reminiscing pleasure.

"Summer Girls"

Yeah...I like it when the girls stop by.. In the summer
Do you remember, Do you remember?
...when we met..That summer??

[Chorus:]
New Kids On The block,had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick.
And I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summer,for the summer
I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch,
I'd take her if I had one wish,
But she's been gone since that summer..
Since that summer

[Verse 1:]
Hip Hop Marmalade spic And span,
Met you one summer and it all began
You're the best girl that I ever did see,
The great Larry Bird Jersey 33
When you take a sip you buzz like a hornet
Billy Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sonnets
Call me Willy Whistle cause I can't speak baby
Something in your eyes went and drove me crazy
Now I can't forget you and it makes me mad,
Left one day and never came back
Stayed all summer then went back home,
Macauly Culkin wasn't Home Alone
Fell deep in love,but now we ain't speaking
Michael J Fox was Alex P Keaton
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch

[Chorus:]
New Kids On The block,had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick.
And I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summer,for the summer
I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch,
I'd take her if I had one wish,
But she's been gone since that summer..
Since that summer

[Verse 2:]
Cherry Pez,cold crush,rock star boogie
Used to hate school so I had to play hookie,
Always been hip to the B-boY Style
Known to act wild and make girls smile,
Love New Edition and the Candy Girl
Remind me of you because you rock my world
You come from Georgia where the peaches grow
They drink lemonade and speak real slow
You love hip hop and rock n roll
Dad took off when you were 4 years old
There was a good man named Paul Revere
I feel much better baby when you're near
You love fun dip and cherry Coke,
I like the way you laugh when I tell a joke
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]
In the summertime girls got it going on,
Shake and wiggle to a hip hop song
Summertime girls are the kind I like,
I'll steal your honey like I stole your bike

[Verse 3]
Bugaloo shrimp and pogo sticks
My mind takes me back there oh so quick
Let you off the hook like my man Mr. Limpet
Think about that summer and I bug,cause I miss it
Like the color purple,macaroni and cheese,
Ruby red slippers and a bunch of trees
Call you up but whats the use
I like Kevin Bacon,but I hate Footloose
Came in the door I said it before,I think I'm over you
but I'm really not sure
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]
In the summer girls come and summer girls go
Some are worth while and some are so so,
Summer girls come and summer girls go
Some are worth while and some are so so,
Summertime girls got it going on
Shake and wiggle to a hip hop song
Summertime girls are the kind I like
I'll steal your honey like I stole your bike

XOXO,

Cancer knows no boundary

Yesterday I finished with work a little early and decided to do some playing on Facebook. I had a friend in college that I didn't really keep in touch with other than the occasional Facebook and Myspace messaging and for some reason I thought of him yesterday. He was diagnosed in April 2007 with cancer so I thought I'd just wonder over to his page to see how he was doing and say hello. When I logged on to his page, I saw that he had passed away last Saturday. He was 25 years old. It's really awful, he's one of the most genuine people I've come across. 

If any of you want to read Jake's story, you can visit the blog he and his mom wrote during his treatment.

I also found out a few weeks ago that my old boss, who is also my mom's old boss, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had surgery to remove it and the doctors are saying she's doing really well, better than they expected even. 

So, please keep Jake's family and my former boss, Paula in your prayers.

XOXO,

No Regrets...

Thanks, everyone for your encouragement! I was starting to feel bad about abandoning Husband on the job, but now I'm really glad I did it. 

Yesterday, my boss came in and apologized that she's been working so much and fussing over nothing. She also said, "I'm apologizing and I'll hope you'll reconsider, but it won't stop."  Way to be convincing, right? 

It's just so hard to work with a woman who is ALWAYS stressed out and not very organized and a man who has no sense of personal space and is not very efficient.

Well, this morning she came into my office in a fuss because we are expecting deliver on Christmas Eve, which means if I weren't quitting, I'd have to work! Isn't that horrible!? She said she is going to tell them to reschedule and told me that if they don't, she might be quitting as well.

Well, I'm so glad to be done with this. Only two more weeks!

XOXO,

I did it!

I quit my job! I can't believe I did it! The boss didn't flip too badly. She didn't say anything, she just got all stressed out.

Part of me feels bad, like I'm kinda letting down my husband. We agreed we would do this job so that we could get caught up on our debt. However, we thought that my job would be less than what it is. 

Well, it's done. Two more weeks of hell, then, hopefully, on to something better.

XOXO,
