I'm a blacker baby, so why don't you kill me?

Yup. That’s right. I’m a blacker. I just wasn’t inspired to write about anything. So here’s my utterly boring story about the weekend.

In an effort to save some money we cut our cable from Standard to Basic. This should save us $35 a month. However, it means that we are now limited to about 20 channels- the basic networks, about 3 different PBS channels, the Waltham channel, Waltham High channel, etc.

This weekend I realized that I am now doomed on weekends. All that was on was sports! I hate sports! I tried watching candlepin bowling, the least sporty of the options, but it was pretty bad. Finally I found Real Simple on PBS.

I suppose I could have gone and spent my time doing something more productive, but I was really just wanting to watch something while I ate my lunch. I have a feeling we’ll be going through Netflix a little bit more now!

Oh, another story that I thought of as I just titled this entry. (Yes, I titled it after typing the entry. Stop looking at me like I’m weird.)

Think back to about 1994 or 95. It was my senior year of high school. Brett Warwick and his friend Dan (last name eluding me) would always make random videos. So one day during some theatre event, maybe a cast party, they played their video for “Loser 3-Legged Jeans.” It was the two of them dancing around the Super Park to the tune of Loser by Beck. Anyway, since my title was a take on this song, I thought of the video. In fact, pretty much any time I hear that song I think of that video.

I can't remember the video but I remember the song totally! I don't feel so old now! Glad you are back and maybe you will inspire Vanessa to at least post a title. So is it a no go on the first scrapbook page. Mel had mentioned how they blew her away so to be honest I'm dying to see it!!

First scrapbook pages- I just haven't gotten around to scanning them. I did pull out the old albums to take a look, but that's about as far as I got. Hope to get them scanned and posted at some point.
