04:28 pm - Saturday Confessions, Pop Music Division
For it is a Saturday afternoon, and I must make my confession before I go over to my friends' for dinner (carrying the Merlot that was pre-approved by the husband for them; carrying either the California Viognier or the Roussanne, sort of West-Coast-meets-the-Rhone, for me).

*I confess that I am so tired and slammed with work that achieving 400 words a day on the Big Project is like solo-climbing a v. high mountain every day. I've fallen off a time or two, let me tell you.

*I confess that I heard Bananarama singing "Cruel Summer" on the radio the other day, and I found myself imagining Jeff, Troy, and Abed (from Community) recreating the video. This entailed a lot of them skipping along, hand in hand. Also, in this imagining, Jeff might have been wearing rather short cutoff jeans and hiking boots. [cough] Look, I said it was a confession.

*I confess that I'm now listening to "I Heard a Rumour." 80s pop power! (I further confess that the original video for that somehow makes me think that I've stumbled onto a showing of RuPaul's Drag Race. Siobhan, Keren, and Sara, forgive me.)

*I confess that I dance along to Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." (I am not linking to a video, because no. Even I have boundaries.)

*I confess that two characters (brother and sister) from my original project whom I'm writing today would have totally danced to Bananarama in their backyard when they were little kids, after having stolen their mom's lava-lamp (for the proper ambiance) and possibly her eyeshadow and Stevie-Nicks-inspired feather boa as well.

*I confess that I'm sending good thoughts for a great week ahead to you all. :-)

I only know Teenage Dream from it's being on Glee, which probably says more about me that I want it to.

And the image of Jeff, Troy and Abed doing Cruel Summer is going to be with me a long time. (This is not a bad thing)

Heee -- the origin of your knowledge of "Teenage Dream" shows that you don't waste your time with contemporary Top 40, that's all! :-)

Yay for the power of images (however poss. disturbing), and yay for you, S. [hugs]

Good thoughts being sent back at you. I might just finish the last chapter of the first draft today.

Hope the dinner was all you hoped for.

I confess to listening to "Robert DeNiro's Waiting" just a few hours ago.

Oh, they sooo would have! Esp. the boa!

Digging out from snow and basking in the restored electricity here!

Oh no for lost electricity and too much snow! But I'm glad the power's back.

Hugs and good thoughts, and thanks! (Chapter's one scene away from being sent.)
