Soup Every Night For Dinner!


Yahoo #2 had some nightmares the other night.  It caused some significant wailing and gnashing.  The next morning his mad scientist bed-head rolled out of bed and said, "Mom.  I had some nightmares.  I dreamed that you and dad abandoned us and we had to live with the Filthy Nelsons."

"And guess what?" He delivered with puppy-dog, you-just-ran-over-my-favorite-toy eyes.  "They had soup every night for dinner!  It was awful."

That's right.  My child's worst nightmare is not one of abandonment.  His worst fear is along the lines of having soup every night for dinner.  Can you imagine anything more awful?  I can't.  Er.  Actually I can.

The kid hates soup like its poop.  True story.  And That's why today's Tuesday Tunes are all about soup.

I wanna run! (RUN!)


I wanna rock!  (Rock!)

This is the song I'm singing yelling at my injury today.  Except I'm saying run where it says rock.  I cannot take it any longer.  Which is a funny thing to say... "I cannot take it any longer!"  That phrase is always a lie, isn't it? Because, like, duh, you have to take it longer.

This is where I tell myself to put my big girl panties on (or hair band playlist and some Dee Snider makeup) and just deal!

Deal, Rabid, deal!

(P.S.  Those lyrics of the 80s... weren't they.... like... something else?  In addition to everything else from the 80s being... like.... something else.  I heart the 80s.  Will always heart the 80s.)




I wanna run (Run)
I wanna run (Run)
I wanna run (Run)
I wanna run (Run)

Turn it down you say
Well, all I got to say to you is time and time again I say
"No, no, no, no, no, no, no"
Tell me not to play

 Well, all I got to say to you when you tell me not to play I say,
"No, no, no, no, no, no, no"
 So, if you ask me why I like the way I play it
 There's only one thing I can say to you

 I wanna run (Run)
 I wanna run (Run)
 I wanna run (Run)
 I wanna run (Run)

There's a feelin' that I get from nothin' else
And there ain't nothin' in the world
That makes me go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Turn the power up

I've waited for so long so I could hear my favorite song
So let's go, go, go, go, go, go, go
When it's like this I feel the music shootin' through me
There's nothin' else that I would rather do

I wanna run (Run)
I wanna run (Run)
I wanna run (Run)
I wanna run (Run)

I Went to New York After a Hurricane...

Here's what I saw.
