Dirty Diana

Why, oh why, do you get certain songs stuck in your head for absolutely NO GOOD REASON? I mean, really? Why, oh why, have I been singing the song "Dirty Diana" all afternoon? By who, by Michael Jackson? By Prince? Praytell, someone let the contemplative chaplain know why these lyrics are echoing in her head? Is it a sign from God that someone named Diana is in need of a hospice chaplain and they have very bad hygenic practices? Oh...when will the madness end.

On a happier note...tonight is my personal spring break. MC has spring break this week, which means R. is off for the entire week but since I only teach a once-a-week evening course, I get a three hour spring break this Monday night. I thought about going to Jazzercise tonight, but then thought..."Hey, it's SPRING BREAK might as well live it up." I may not have a Panama City beach house, but I've got me a Lean Cuisine personal cheese pizza and 21-lb. cat in my lap and a nice hot bath with patchouli bath oil in my future. The fun starts here (and yet if addressing my college self) I'd feel the need to say, "how did I sink so low?"

What else? What else? I've got your attention now and feel the need to make this post worthwhile, lest you feel overburdened by your internet surfing. Um....how can I impress readers so that more than 9 readers read per day? Magic tricks? Tap dancing? Secrets revealed?

Okay, here's one...when I was seven, I stole my friend Dora's scooby-doo rubber stamp. But, internet friends, don't tell anyone...especially not Dora.

More exciting tales of renegade adventures to come...

i do believe that was little michael jackson. dirty diana is probably a better song to have in chaplin's head than prince's darling nikki.... that is a dirty dirty song.

Oh great, now I'll hum that one all day. It is filthy, filthy.
Of course, it's better than the Strawberry Shortcake theme...

super duper Chap. Now I have strawberry shortcake, huckleberry pie. . . did we actually ever figure out the words/tune to that song? cuz every time i go to sing it (which you know how often that is!) i end up singing it to the tune of "patty cake patty cake baker's man". with as much s.s. that i had in my life as a child, you'd think that i'd know the song like the back of my hand. . .

Wow...you sing it to Patty Cake? I sing it to the Twinkle Twinkle song...I'm going to do some internet exploration and see if we can ever find those @#$% lyrics.
