Tuesday Tunes

I've been wanting to write this post for a li'l while now and now is the perfect opportunity.

Their new CD drops April 23rd and from the two songs I've heard so far it's....


I'm beyond stoked. I've waited 4 years for this and the last time I saw them was 2010...so I'm pretty much "AAAAHHHH" *jumping up and down*

And don't forget to set your DVR's for April 6th, they are the musical guests...and yeah some actress named Melissa McCarthy might be hosting...whatevs... (ha,ha! - naw, she's pretty funny)

Without further ado here are the two songs that have been on constant replay at my house:

So artistic...non?

You'll have to go to this tumblr site to hear Drakkar Noir.

Which I've been listening more of - maybe it's all the jingle jungles...

Light a fire

I gotta light a fire under my butt today and get moving.

See, I fell on Tuesday and bruised myself up pretty bad.

All because of the stupid fire alarm.

I set the self-cleaning thingy on the stove and because something had spilled on the bottom the house got smoky then the fire alarm went off. I went upstairs to open the windows and turn it off. As I'm standing on a rubber tub (because the stools were rickety and I was afraid I was going to fall - the rubber tub seemed the safest option) pushing the buttons on the alarm - which didn't work by the way. So I was like "well I'll just take the batteries out for a little while until the smoke dissipates", well that didn't work either because there are no batteries in it. It's like connected to some wires in the ceiling or something. Anyway I'm frantically trying to somehow turn it off because the beep, beep, beep is now piercing my brain and then of course, wouldn't you know it, the phone starts ringing.  So know I'm under pressure to turn off the damn thing and answer the phone.

Well....the tub buckles under me, slips and I fell off. So much for that "this will be safer than a stool" thinking.

I'm not a graceful faller. I twisted my wrist and scraped my knee. I lay there for a minute going "sssss....ow.....sssss...ow."

The smoke detector stops on its own, the phone stops ringing.

And I'm laying there.

That floor is really hard.

The next two days I'm really sore. Now I have a big ugly bruise on my knee. No skirt for my today.

Because I've been sore I haven't done a thing. Nothing!

Now, today life is encroaching on me and I gotta get moving.

Perfect day for this song. Which I've been listening to quite a bit lately and even woke up singing this morning. If it gets stuck in your head too...you're welcome!

I wanna cut my hair like hers.

Linking up today with Whitney for backthatazzup. Man, if you listen to all those songs you'll have quite the party!
