This week’s special edition has been brought to you by life with my real world responsibilities. Starting with hitting the books, and ending with attending webinars with words reminiscent of Klingon Boggle.
You may have noticed my alter ego and I share a zombie avatar in the morning. I wouldn’t call it an allergy to mornings per se, but more a celebration of evening. I really do think mornings are lovely—once I wake up around 10 a.m.. For those of you who used to work with me in Seattle, I’m sure the revelation comes as a bit of a shock.
However, this week even my third cup of morning Joe failed me.
Two songs popped into my head, neither one Michael Bolton’s “The One Thing,” to get my blood pumping.
“Rhythm is a Dancer” by Snap! kept pounding on the closet door in the remote recesses of my brain.
*Fannie looks around the closet.*
A dim, bare bulb swinging on the cord from the ceiling—making a soft creaking sound, punctuated by the thin, metal pull-chain clapping the glass. Freed from the bulb, cobwebs floated toward the ceiling.
I need to dust. And replace that light bulb. It’s a bit creepy in here.
Sitting on the shelf next to it, Technotronic’s “Pump Up the Jam.” Now that should get my blood flowing.
When I watched the video, I remembered why I put it on the shelf.
But now I’m pumped up—bring on the Klingon Boggle.
What songs help get your motor running in the morning? Let me know in the comments.
Until next week my friends.
