And I Stay Here Just the Same

Tonya's new hairdo is a "reconstructed mullet."
HAHA! Tonya has a mullet!!!

Are you serious?? Can it be that NO ONE I work with knows Steely Dan?

My brain has a way of bringing up a song whenever someone says something. If someone says "I need sugar," my brain starts singing The kombucha mushroom people . . .

"I'm sorry, I'm off in my own zone" All my people in the crowd, let me see you dance . . .

"I don't know why the computer just blew up!!!" Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky . . .

It's quite indicative of both my widespread taste in music as well as my knack for filling my head with lyrics.

So when Tonya told someone she was tired of doing their dirty work, the song "Dirty Work" by Steely Dan popped into my head. I was humming the tune, singing the tune and nobobdy knew the song!

Even Cassie, who sings more (and better) than I do, didn't know the song. What's worse, she tells me "It must have been before my time!" as if I'm some sort of ancient creature!!! Argh! Well, 1972 is before my time, too! So there!

She does know the song "Please Don't Go" by KWS, which is took much more talent to come up with.

C'mon people! You should all know Steely Dan! He's a good guy!
