January 15, already. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun, or something.
Due to an old ‘war wound’ that I lovingly refer to as ‘PITA’, I have difficulty sitting in my office chair for long periods of time during the occasional flare up. That was me yesterday, when I spent my comfortable allotted computer time, paying bills, answering emails and doing Internet research (basically goofing off), instead of writing my BATTLE OF THE BANDS post. Sorry, if that was a little bit TMI.
This morning when I woke up at 3 AM and couldn’t get back to sleep (incurable insomniac) I decided to peruse the blogs. To my surprise and horror, I found that all of the regular participants in BATTLE OF THE BANDS had already put up their posts. Further checking confirmed that even a new participant Donna Hole was up and running. Holy carp! This bit of information really kicked my insomnia into high gear, and I got up to write my post. Therefore, if it’s any more incoherent than normal, blame it on my bleary eyed, sleep deprived, somnambulist, condition.
During the Christmas Holiday’s one of the local grocery stores ran an ad with no voice over and no print on the screen other than their name. It was an interesting Holiday montage of fancy eats backed up by a very familiar tune. The song lent itself very well to the Christmas Season, but was just somewhere out of my being able to put a title to it. It was driving me nuts (OK more nuts). I finally did a little google research and found it to be a song written by Rod Argent and recorded by the Zombies in 1968 (if you remember the 60’s, you probably didn’t enjoy them, much, or so I’m told). Anyway…This song is often used in ‘pop culture’ to represent the late 1960’s (or so Wikipedia says).
