I want this:



It makes me squeal with delight.

I've been puttering through my Billy the Kid story; I still think it's good, but new scenes keep popping into my head, forcing me to research things like opium and popular music of the early 1940's. I found a lot of songs which I still know (and people still play, like a lot of Bob Wills songs), but many which obviously didn't age well, like Goodbye Mama I'm Off To Yokohama and Mussolini's Letter to Hitler or, and I suppose mostly, We're Gonna Slap The Dirty Little Jap (most of these were by someone named Carson Robinson, whom even I have never heard of). I knew I'd be safe using Bob Wills, the Carter Family, and Bing Crosby, but I can't believe (slap me) I didn't think of Ernest Tubb and Roy Acuff.

I haven't been going to the gym, but I HAVE been working out, at least. I feel I ought to go while I'm still paying them (I think I may let it lapse the next time I come up for renewal, especially if I DO keep up with the Boot Camp DVD), but come 4 a.m. I just don't want to get out of bed (although the last two days I have woken up at that time anyway and laid there for the next hour and a half wishing I could get back to sleep).

I hate the times when my mouth is starving but my stomach is full.

This is VERY cool.

Wine rec: Fresh & Easy has a sparkling rose called Cava Montcadi, which, at less than $10 a bottle (it was on sale last week for $5.99), is probably the absolute best buy in wine I've ever run across. It's light and sweet, but not too sweet (not Port or Muscat sweet), very bubbly, surprisingly strong, and just plain delicious.

Adopt one today!

Eeeee! Both the bank and the highway are very cool. The Japanese can be both strange and wonderful. And hurray for working out. I'm hoping to do some "real" walking soon. ::is pathetic::

I got on this Japanese product list which also often sends out little tidbits of cultural information, like that awesome highway and explanations of things seen in Anime, etc. It's very nifty.

Well, you DO have some physical excuse, there! Get yourself a resistance band and do some upper body stuff until your hip feels better! *hug*

that reminds me of all the war time Bugs Bunny's which you no longer see for obvious reasons. But I DO remember in the 70's when they'd air with bugs quipping 'there's a little nip in the air' while a japanese Zero was flying overhead.

Don't forget radio shows. plenty of fun stuff there

Yes, indeed. I have at least mentioned the Grand Ole Opry, but mostly I was looking for songs that Sean Patrick can be heard to sing, and not something that was released late in the war or post-war. Cole Porter is always safe, and "singing along with Bing Crosby" or "Dean Martin" likewise, but when it comes to specific SONGS...

Oh meow!!!

Good for you for working out! It's been about a week for me...

I know EXACTLY what you mean.

I'm doing all right; I need to get more consistent. Three times a week is insufficient.

YES! You wander around thinking "I want that," but last night I was literally having trouble swallowing, I was so full!
