random friday HEAD OUCHY!!!

Arrrgh! Arrgh arrrgh arrrgh ARRRGH! Size 5 brain in a size 4 brain case. ARRRRGH!!!

So yeah. I caught me the winter thing that is going around and I’ve been home miserating for two days now. Yesterday I slept until 2pm, got up and took drugs and then crashed until 6ish when TheMan got home. Hung around with him for an hour or two and then crashed again for the rest of the evening. Today has been a bit better once I discovered around noonish that massaging my temples really, really hurts in that “I’ve strained a big ol’ muscle” kind of way. It also feels really good when I’ve been rubbing my poor achy temple muscles for a bit. Tension headache? I has one!

But that doesn’t explain the sinuses, nausea or coughing. Where did I get a tension headache anyway? I can’t think of when I’ve ever suffered from one. Hrrrrm! Maybe I’ve developed retroactive TMJ from all those years back when I was a gum ball addict.


So I got to thinking the other day, when show tunes were the ear worm du jour (you like how that works? Switch to a different language when you are going to be writing the same thing twice!) about the Music Man. The first thought was that I really had to memorize the pool song because I really, really like that song (and we were trying to adapt it into a Lovecraftian-Hammerstein fusion musical: Bet you never knew the “H” in “H.P. Lovecraft” stood for Hammerstein did you??!?). My second thought was that although the “Wells Fargo” song is incredibly catchy, it’s also really stupid. Granted, when I see the UPS dude stopped near our house I’m all a-squee because I love getting PACKAGES!! So

O-ho the Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin’ down the street,
Oh please let it be for me!
O-ho the Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin’ down the street,
I wish, I wish I knew what it could be!

makes perfect sense. Who’s he there for? Me? ME??!? OhPleaseOhPlease let it be my SNACKS!!! Then you have all these people saying what they got last time including a guy who sings that “Montgom’ry Ward sent me a bathtub and a cross-cut saw.” Which…Duh! I expect you ordered it (dumbass). OK, maybe I just have a problem with that one line since he sounds like out of the blue lookie what he got! Oh my word, a bathtub and a cross-cut saw! Oh Montgom’ry Ward, you shouldn’t have.

Then again, maybe way back in antiquity Montgom’ry Ward did send out little packages to its best customers for their birthday or something. A bathtub seems a bit much though.

Well crap, I just Googled “Music Man” and it is not a Rogers and Hammerstein. That’s what, a one in 20 chance of picking a non R&H musical? Wait, I didn’t account for Andrew Lloyd Chatter. OK how’s 75 R&H, 20 ALC, 5 Misc Other Guys…sound about right? Hey, my head hurty this is as good as I get at math today.

Errr…I think that about all my brain can do today. I think I’m going to go nap now.

2007: Even Willie failed me and if Willie or the Bible didn’t say it, it was never said.

2006: Plus, I’m still vaguely pink from the “wash out” dye I used back in July.

2005: It’s actually quite daunting the way her young mind tells her mouth to whip out an Alplesioraptocephelusopodasaurus while my brain is still stuck on “Apple-Aphl-Appa-ahhh…Alpacasaurus?”

2004: JSFR: Toppo

2003: Do I get to say “Off with their heads?” because I really think that would be cool.

    Okay, I was JUST thinking about the Wells Fargo song from Music Man the other day, and thinking just exactly how dumb it was for everyone to follow around the wagon thing hoping there was something in it for them. Did you order something? No? Then sorry, IT IS NOT FOR YOU no matter how nicely you sing “please let it be for me.” The Wells Fargo man is not Santa Claus.

    Woah…that’s weird. Our brains are in synch for some weird reason. Scaaaaary!

    I’m not sure that hoping the Wells Fargo (*cough*UPS*cough*) guy is stopping at your house is necessarily a stupid thing if you haven’t ordered anything. Then again, he’s usually parked in front of our house when I see him and go “Oooo! Could it be some surprise something for ME??!?” Occasionally I have been known to get a random package and the dude is parked IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE! It sucks when he does that and goes across the street to deliver a package.

    I rarely get excited when he’s just motoring down the street so yeah, that’s a little lame.

    I’m always agog that the Montgom’ry Ward guy sounds so surprised that he got a bathtub and a saw. That’s just really sort of dumb unless he didn’t order them. In which case, they aren’t his.
