If you're anything like me (which is possibly the most ridiculous statement I've ever made), you have a theme song.
A personal theme song for is quite the necessary accessory for your day, your week, your life. If you do not have a theme song, I suggest you go out an get one right this minute. But Kerry, I don't know what my theme should be, you say — well, I'm here to help, peeps.
Your personal theme song should reflect how you feel or how you want to feel, your attitude, or your beliefs. Or it could be that a song with lyrics that seem like they were written just for you. Everyone has had a moment when a song comes on the radio and you're blown away by the words. Say, if your name is Ruby and you're cheating on your spouse who happens to be a disabled veteran — your theme song could be "Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town," by Kenny Rogers, recently covered by The Killers. There is no judging on the Kerry Blog, only love. And helping others. And sarcasm. And maybe a a wee little bit of judging, but it's only because I care.
Just for fun, I thought I'd share my theme song with you and all of the interwebs this weekend. It's always been Adam Ant's "Goody Two Shoes" for me, since forever.
I love that song. Which reminds me, I still haven't gotten those leather leggings and gun holster of piratecowboy.com I ordered a few weeks ago. While Adam Ant always wore more makeup and used more hair products than me, his song has played in my head through lots of moments of my life. After all, I've been Miss Goody Two Shoes forever and wear the crown gladly. By the way, "subtle innuendos follow, must be something inside" is the line everyone can't make out.
It's also helpful to have theme songs for specific activities, trips, and such. As of last night I have a new theme song for scrapbook trips courtesy of my friend Laurel who introduced me to the fabulousness that is Leslie Hall. This is the song that Laurel listens to while she gets ready to go out, because that's what the song is about, but because of a few lines, I'm declaring it the new scrapbooking trip song. Peeps, I give you "How We Go Out."
The lyrics I'm loving are:
You stop cause it you know it means so much to me
We take the back seats out of your mini van
Now we roll like a hummer or a full size sedan
obviously that would be because we have to take the back seats out of my van when we go on a trip. And thought we don't usually stop at a Dairy Queen on the way, we do stop somewhere for goodies.
And I'm scrapbooking everything we do
Ring ring ring- that's my cell
Bring the bling when I sing of course I will
FINALLY! A hip hop song that talks about scrapbooking! Now my life is complete.
You may return to your regularly scheduled weekend.
