What to muse about today?

September 8, 2010

So, we took the new car and went to the Hooley this weekend.  The new car drives soooo nicely.  It was a fun drive.  I really like the new car.  We played a bit with the satellite radio (it came with free Sirius for three months as well as the iPod hook up that I had put in.  Fun stuff.

Anyway, we ended meeting up with friends and then walked down to the Hooley.  It was much more crowded than I remember, although it’s been a few years since I’ve been able to go.  Still, delicious food choices (OMG Salt Potatoes!) and good music (Seven Nations!).  Teagan had a blast, it was hard to contain her, she wanted to dance dance dance!


Teagan was dying to get on the stage – she almost did for the second set of dancers, but my friend kept her off during the show.  We let her up after the girls were done, while they were still changing band set-ups.  It was so sweet that one of the girls came up to dance with her.  Shame that the other kids crowded Teagan out, but that didn’t put my kiddo off, not one bit.  She just clapped to show her appreciation and went on to dance by herself.

Chicken Dance

Ok. Music… eeps. The DJ called last night, wondering what song we wanted for cutting the cake, for entering, for the groom/mother dance… Er… Well… Do we have to? :)

The only stuff we did ask to have NOT be played was the Stupid Chicken Dance. Hate it. We also did ask to only do the participation stuff if someone requested it… Looks like we’re not the only ones that don’t like those things :)

The Most Dreaded Dance

“All cheesy music, including interactive songs like the Macarena and the Electric Slide, should be banned. Grandma and Grandpa should be spared the humiliation of having to dance to these musical abominations.”
–Elizabeth, 25, Frederick, MD

“I hate that dorky Chicken Dance. It’s not a nice thing to put your guests through. I have never heard someone say that they liked everything about a wedding but missed doing the Chicken Dance; but I have heard people speak with dread about the impending possibility of being subjected to this ‘tradition’ at some point in the night.”
–Laura, 30, New York, NY

And now it’s 17…

Anyway, we needed to pick a song for the first dance. Easy you say? Not so much. Stu and I have different musical tastes. We both offered up several suggestions, which well… didn’t go so far. It’s amazing how a lovely song has lyrics that suggest a less than happy (or PG-13 image). Anyway, we ended up settling on a song by Genesis. Go figure. I do think I’m a bit more happy about it than he his, but the lyrics are just wonderful.

Follow You Follow Me

Stay with me,
My love I hope you’ll always be
Right here by my side if ever I need you
Oh my love

In your arms,
I feel so safe and so secure
Everyday is such a perfect day to spend
Alone with you
I will follow you, will you follow me?
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you, will you stay with me?
Just one single tear in each passing year
With the dark,
Oh, I see so very clearly now
All my fears are drifting by me so slowly now
Fading away
I can say
The night is long, but you are here
Close at hand,
Oh I’m better for the smile you give
And while I live
I will follow you, will you follow me?
All the days and nights that wee know will be
I will stay with you, will you stay with me?
Just one single tear in each passing year there will be…

 Am I totally corny? Now… to dance :)
