Ugh.

It's enough to make a person wonder. Yet another of my peers is engaged. I'm starting to feel left behind in this culture of today. This makes at least four people I know who are my age who are getting married. Mother of Bob, I say.

In other news...After seeing Jenn and Katie do this in their journals, I decided it's time to come up with the soundtrack of my life. Something tells me this is going to be a work in progress for some time, but it's a start.

The Early Years (North Dakota/early New Mexico)
Little Boxes - Staff Sgt. Band -- the band some of my Dad's friends started in Grand Forks. We heard their music all the time.
The M*A*S*H theme song -- the family's always been big on M*A*S*H.
Purple People Eater -- One of the first records I can remember playing on our big stereo. Ye gods, I'm old...

The Middle Kingdom (New Mexico)
Elvira - Oak Ridge Boys -- introduced me to my first true love - the bass voice. Drool...
Gitarzan, The Streak, Mississippi Squirrel Revival - Ray Stevens -- played every year during the road trip from home to Grandma's place. Our family has an interesting sense of humor, I must say.
Manic Monday - the Bangles -- Ah, the 80s...

To be continued...

I'm not!
No sir! I'm not engaged, nor do I plan to even think about being engaged for at least 2 more years. Hell, I'm not even *dating* anyone! Don't be disheartened. The earlier you get married, the sooner you are tied down to someone whose preferences, interests, tastes, pet peeves, etc. must continuously be taken into account in the choices you make about you.
Feel your freedom. Sow your wild oats. Enjoy being young and unattached, so that when you are attached years down the road, you can look back and feel satisfied (and perhaps nostalgic?) for the old days of doing what you felt like, when you felt like, with whomever you pleased.
Plus, I love you.

This pep-talk installment is now concluded. ;)
More available free of charge, anytime.

My Homecoming date is due next month. Yeah. That kind of due.
Also my house is full of cute couples.
I feel your pain, sister.
