Someone Kiss A Frog ASAP

Music is the lifeblood that keeps me going through the day. I have been working quite a few 10,11,12 hour days lately and without the sweet sounds of music tickling my ears I am pretty sure I would explode - and that would be messy. And be inconvenient for my roommate because then he would have to pay rent by himself. Man would he be pissed.

This morning has been kind of a bitch to me. I got up late, rewarding myself for an extremely long day yesterday, and everything seemed fine. Then traffic hit. Then I forgot white socks for my softball game - meaning I have to wear khaki colored argyle socks with my bright red cleats. Then I spilled burning hot coffee on my hand.

But that was nothing. Most of that is because I am an idiot - and I have learned to accept that.

What I can't accept is when my iTunes hides Prince from me.

You son of a bitch, iTunes - I want When Doves Cry and I want it now.

It was there yesterday - the entire Purple Rain album. I started my morning with Let's Go Crazy and danced through Purple Rain. I thoroughly enjoy making other people feel weird inside because they are trying to talk business and I want to tell them about Darling Nikki. I don't give a shit if Prince isn't exactly the Straight Man's Anthem - dude wails on the geetar and I am pretty sure he is a magical elf. You want to make fun of a magical elf? I'm sure that will go well. Don't come crying to me when the Magical Elf Formerly Known As Prince turns you into a urinal cake. You had it coming, Dude.

Besides, if Prince isn't a REAL man do you think he would be able to mustache? Let the man with the most facial hair cast the first stone.

In visualizing your office without music I see you making other feel weird much more frequently.

And Prince screams straight man in comparison to the likes of Queen.

As a kid, I was totally obsessed w/the movie Purple Rain

Gross man. Just nasty.

There is nothing wrong with argyle and cleats.

He's a little too pretty and petite for me but I'll take his hot guitar licks any day. Darling Nikki, huh? You freak, you. There's lyrics you sure don't want to sing aloud in the office. On the raunch scale, it brings Nickelback's Figured You Out to mind...

the almost right word said...

amen to your prince lovin.

he is the god of magical elfs.

1. Darling Nikki is on my list of "karaoke ta-do's"
2. Prince is a dirty dog and my mother loves him for it.
3. I like saying, "dearly beloved we are gathered here today to celebrate this thing called life. electric word life it means forever and that's a might long time...." for no real reason at all other than it is awesome.
4. I did not google Prince +Let's Go Crazy lyrics.
5. Shoot the J

Prince just says what we're all thinking.

"don't have to be rich to be my girl"

"Party like its 1999"

"Maybe your'e just like my mother"

He probably owns red cleats too.

I kind of have an unhealthy crush on Prince.

My co workers complain about my singing. But when Prince's Pussy Control comes on, I am compelled to sing it out loud and follow it up with a quick slap to the beav!!

I think singing and dancing in the office is a necessity. It gives your coworkers a healthy fear for your mental sanity, keeps them on their toes.

I have a really good cover of Erotic City on my itunes. A friend and I were just saying that we need to listen to more Prince.

Jocular Schlemiel said...

Maybe you should try to find the remakes of Prince's songs...

If you can't find Prince's Dove's Cry, listen to Ginuwine's version. Then play Ginuwine's pony for some cute chick in the office and tap that ass over the xerox machine.

that picture makes me feel all squirmy and gross.

MsPuddin said...

haha.my friend and i were just discussing how unusual it is that he has so much bass in his voice when he talks, but sings like mariah carey.

Fumbling Towards Adulthood said...

You know what I want to know? Why iTunes won't allow me to buy/download ANY Bob Seger songs.

Someone tell me why.

catscratch said...

Prince was my lover... he's totally a man...

Or, I dunno, it might have all just been a dream... but he's all man.
