Room cleaning coming along. Brought the finished CDs down to the playroom/storage room to have the bags and boxes out of my hair (the final box to do is huge, but whateverrr, and it's alphabetised so that's neat). Clothing all put away.

My Sarah Palin mug (won at an outrageous Yankee Swap) is staring at me. Tiny bit unnerving. It's a "tea party" mug, though, so I thought Sarah would find a heathen poly liberal lesbian drinking real tea from it while reading non-vanilla old-people smut to be sufficiently offending. Cooties to you, Sarah Palin.

But mainly, I was reminiscing about my childhood with a song.

It's called "Easy Bake Ovens" by Girlyman, a band I've loved since I was 15 (and the one that got me into folk music), and it pretty much sums up my childhood. If you replace the last few lines with something about George Bush Senior or Clinton Impeached or The Next Big Bush.

I'll include this one since it's the CD version, even though it comes with a bit of an odd video:


And here's a live version, just because I saw it linked and I was physically in the audience as they played this. (It was after Janis Ian's set ♥♥♥.)


So there's my childhood. Something to remember as I turn 22. Mainly because my heart is still somewhere around six. And to remind myself why I'm so weirded out by the lack of kids playing and being mischievous out in the streets, especially since I still live in the 'burbs. I managed to do that and play computer/video games.

My computer is flipping the frak out over ripping this 'Blind Faith' CD. I think my computer is an atheist... Now it just sounds like a vibrator. My dear machine, I think you're confused...

Cleaning break over, I think.

An hour to the 22nd; I feel sane and settled. Go inner strength go!

I applaud your "clothing all put away" ;-)) , and your reminiscing about the tea-cup is so funny :-)

As LJ ate my other comment with pic and birthday-wishes, I posted on my journal... that seems to be easier :-)

Thank you very much for your post! And I'm glad you enjoyed this one, to some extent. (:

Unfortunately the cleaning has paused again as I've been feeling rubbish with the cold. But hopefully tomorrow will be a bit better; if not, I'll take some cold medicine and promise to get things done in the few hours the medicine will give me.
