Lipsynching--Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Music Playlist at

There is something you must know.  There is something that I have held onto since high school and I cannot give it up.  I have an amp and larger speakers in my car.  I used to have it because I thought I was cool enough to "bump" down the street to TuPac at alarming, deafening volumes.  Because of that, I am now fairly hearing impaired.  So, though my tastes of music has varied, I keep the speakers in my car.  That and I can't listen to music without some  bass at least.  But just for a moment, imagine me.  In my used gold Saturn (that's for you Chris).  "Bumping" down the street.  To anything from hip hop to metal to classic rock.  Awkward.

Well, as most of you may remember, I lost the CD player in my car a month or so ago.  It was one of the most disappointing days of the year.   I have thus been forced to wear my IPod in my car while I drive (only in one ear, calm down, I'm still careful).  The earbud can be problematic and I have noticed how anything I do can hinder my musical intake--chewing, buckling and unbuckling, talking on the cell phone, reaching for something in my purse)--by ripping the earbud out of my ear.  So, I try to be as still and focused as possible when I drive.  I wonder if Progressive has a safer driver kind of discount for that?  I think Flo would approve.  Awesome.

Bonus, though.  Because my speakers can make my music a little more noticeable to others (ok, I'm not obnoxious with it, but I just like my music load when on highways and stuff, not at stop lights or through neighborhoods), I am sometimes more selective with my music.  I mean, I love the Police and all but . . . it sounds kind of Awkward flooding out of the car.  So, with the IPod, I can Bailamos and Play that Funky Music White Boy without shame.  Awesome.

But here's something a little Awkward.  As if it wasn't awkward enough to see my little Goldilocks (that's my car's name) bee bopping down the street, but you often see me pulling a total Michael Bolton, going to town with some Biggie or taking a trip down memory lane with some Spanish hip hop (I LOVE the beat) from a phase I went through a couple of years ago or screaming right along with Static X, throwing up some metal horns.  I am not shy when it comes to me in my car.  That is my special place and often my drive time is my only "me" time of the day.  It is priceless and special.  So I take total advantage.  However, what might look even stranger than me singing every single word of Regulate is the fact that I continue to sing along and dance like a maniac in my car.  With my IPod in.  That no one else can see or hear.  Awkward.

*Insert transition I'm unable to come up with at the moment*  Daryl asked me to find a file today in the file room.  This entails lifting and searching through box after box of files.  Each box about 60-70 pounds.  Some of them are stacked on top of each other.  This often involves ladders.  Not a big deal.  Unless you happen to be wearing a very fitted, high-waisted, virtually immobile pencil skirt and four inch stiletto heeled oxfords.  Awkward.

One of my favorite parts of the night is the about half hour or so between the kids being ready for bed and actually going to bed, a.k.a winding down time.  Often times, we are playing either Go Fish, which my daughter is exceptional at by the way, or Uno.  It's so simple, yet one of the funnest parts of my day.  Awesome.

It was supposed to be 70 and cloudy today.  Clearly, it was sunny and in the high 70's.  I wore a faux fur vest and knit knee highs.  Awkward and Awesome.
