Just a Quickie

MOOD STATUS: "Worried". Still trying to finish up my work in progress.

This is going to be quick because
A) I have writing to do (don't we all?) and
B) I need to go the gym so I can claim a treadmill before they're all taken up.

I had a nice weekend--but tiring. And you know what? I forgot to mention that I went and saw the band Survivor on Friday.

Yes, seriously.

But before you judge me on my musical preferences, let me first say that the concert was for a fundraiser for our school. They were...interesting. They sounded pretty good but perhaps the three hour guitar solo could have been trimmed down a tad. (Slight embellishment--but only SLIGHT)
"Eye of the Tiger" rocked, at least.

Nuff on that subject.
Went to a child's birthday party on Sunday. That was really fun! The kids did the bobbing for apples thing. Or what my friend and I called "bobbing for swine flu". LOL!

Sorry! I know, I know. I shouldn't joke about that. But you get a little punchy at these things.

I'm trying to plan a trip right now, too. More on this at a later post...


That's it for me. So I'll leave you with what my child and her friend did yesterday while I wrote: They painted pumpkins in the garage.

Do you honestly know any Survivor song other than "Eye of the Tiger"?

I thought I didn't, but then I was surprised when I recognized a few more. :)

The only other Survivor song I remember is "Burning Heart." That one was from Rocky too.

The pumpkins are cute!

Robyn Campbell said...

Hmmm, don't know too many Survivor songs. I do know "Eye of the Tiger" though. Sounds like you had a great holiday weekend.

I have a lot of writing to do today too. Thanks for your comment on my son. And for your prayers. I'm on a mission today to tell all my bloggy friends how much I appreciate them. Jennifer, thanks for being my bloggy bud and I really am thankful for ya. :)

Nope. Can't think of any Survivor songs. I love the pumpkins, though. They did a great job.

I used to run to Eye of the Tiger, though I would not picture myself as Rocky. Bobbing for swine flu is classic!

Haha! Last week I sang that song to myself and a friend as we struggled to walk a long, exhausting distance in the hot sun. It made the experience a lot more fun!

Natalie said...

Cute pumpkins! I don't think I know any Survivor songs, but I bet I'd recognize a few too.

What a wonderful idea to paint pumpkins! I think I will do that with my girls they would love it!

Happy writing!

Cindy said...

Survivor rules! Lol. At least you enjoyed yourself. Have a great week

i thought survivor was like another one-hit wonder band. i even asked my music-savvy husband what else thay sang and his prompt answer was, "nothing you'd know." i wasn't sure if i should be offended....but it sounds like no one else really knows anything else they sang, either. :)

OK You win the good mom award. My DD carved a pumpkin and suggested I put it up on my blog.... Um I have not done this as of yet, but there's still time, right?

Prixie said...

those pumpkins are adorable.

Dawn VanderMeer said...

Confession: I had a Survivor tape as a teen. That said, I had a ton of tapes, and many were considered cool. ;)

The pumpkins are really cute! I look forward to hearing about the trip.

Diane said...

You are all kinds of fiesty in this blog. Sounds like an exciting weekend! :O)

Elizabeth Bradley said...

I'm not so clear on just what a survivor song is, but what about that disco tune, I Will Survive, would that fit the bill?

Ms Snarky Pants said...

I didn't even know that was the name of the band who sang it! hehe

Cute pumpkins and good job distracting them with crafts!:-D

Alice Audrey said...

I'm not sure I would be able to sit through Survivor, worthy cause or not.

Strange Fiction said...

I'm hopeless at matching songs with bands--but I do like "Eye of the Tiger" :) Love the painted pumpkins!

Stephanie said...

Eye of the tiger..yup that's about it. Love the pumpkins! Such creative ones! Channel that to writing and you'll have another best seller in the family! ;o)

And I thought we had adopted most of our cultural identity from American Television.

Can't say we paint gourds often though .... we mostly eat them.

Kelly H-Y said...

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any of their other songs! Cute pumpkins!
