This morning I woke up and it was grey outside and I just stayed happily ensconced in my bed reading a book. I finally finished it and trudged downstairs and suddenly thought, "Good GOD, I'm having brunch with Boo in TEN minutes!" Luckily it doesn't take me long to get ready. We had an absolutely lovely time, as always. My meal was WONDERFUL. These days it's a bit iffy for me at restaurants, but Destihl had a special of basil marinated chicken breast, farro, quinoa, basil oil, red bell pepper, mint, bacon and peach dressing, and lemon zest. I ordered it with just quinoa, no farro and it was really, really great. YAY! I had a good meal in a restaurant! Thanks, Boo!


Last night Ernie went on a 45 playing kick. It was lovely. The Jam, the Swingers, National Drag, the Elvis Brothers, Radio Stars…the 45 pile is a mighty thing.


I gotta say, Fascist Groove Thang sure as hell rings true again, all these years later…

Have you heard it on the news
About this fascist groove thang
Evil men with racist views
Spreading all across the land
Don't just sit there on your ass
Unlock that funky chaindance
Brothers, sisters shoot your best
We don't need this fascist groove thang
Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang
History will repeat itself
Crisis point we're near the hour
Counterforce will do no good
Hot you ass I feel your power
Hitler proves that funky stuff
Is not for you and me girl
Europe's an unhappy land
They've had their fascist groove thang
Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang
Democrats are out of power
Across that great wide ocean
Reagan's president elect
Fascist god in motion
Generals tell him what to do
Stop your good time dancing
Train their guns on me and you
Fascist thang advancing
Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang
Sisters, brothers lend a hand
Increase our population
Grab that groove thang by the throat
And throw it in the ocean
You're real tonight you move my soul
Let's cruise out of the dance war
Come out your house and dance your dance
Shake that fascist groove thang
(Shake it!)
