Why can't I be you?

That's not a question actually, it's me singing. Badly. The husband gave me my Mother's Day present already. Cure tickets for tonight's show at the Patriot Center. Color me ecstatic... also relieved since I found something to wear that ISN'T a business suit. (I asked my friend just what an aging, puffy Cure fan wears to the show, anyway. Her reply? ''Duh! BLACK!!!'' Oh right. my mistake.) And my coworkers have all been looking at me funny but that might be because I was singing Lullaby to myself when they came in.



and in the ''ExCUSE me????'' department...

As my friend Velocibadger says... sometimes the jokes just write themselves. A trio of Texas 17 years old are in a heaping mess of trouble. Drugs are bad, mmmkay? Robbing a 90 year old grave, stealing a skull AND MAKING A BONG OUT OF IT????? Not even my wisecracking teenager could think of a response to that news story, except to say faintly ''Wow. Bet their moms are proud.''

OMG. Color me jealous.

Hope you wore black and LOTS of eyeliner.

What happened to buying bongs at the store? or making them out of coke cans? Those kids are serisouly effed up.

Tickets to The Cure? Gotta love that guy.

I knew guys like that in high school.... in fact? I am thinking that maybe my ex might even have been involved in that grave robbery. Well, I wouldn't be surprised.

I listened to The Cure in high school... also The Cult, Depeche Mode and every other "I hate my life and wear all black" teenager in the USA. :) Have fun at the concert.

As to the bong thing... I admit I don't know too much about that, but don't they need fewer holes than what a skull would provide? What did they cover the eye sockets with?

Or am I an idiot?

When my daughter was a kid, she misunderstood the name and called it Depressed Mode.

My husband, the southern rock devotee, has just discovered that the Cult is not all that bad. I am now trying to get hm to listen to The The.

Poor guy. I already knocked his world off-kilter when I told him that his favorite judas Priest song is actually a Joan Baez cover.
