I took a little break...

I had to take a little vacation from blogging. I have been trying to get a bunch of stuff gone through before I get all the Christmas stuff out. I made myself a rule (do you ever do that?) that I couldn't get the Christmas stuff out until I had gone through each of the kid's closets, the kid's toys and the storage room. So, this is the first year ever that my Christmas is not up the day after Thanksgiving. The biggest problem is not that I have gotten into throwing crap away, I look at some of my Christmas decorations and it's crap and I want to throw it away. But I can't replace it, so that's the dilema...

I was just on a blog and Josh Groban was singing on their playlist and it made me think of the first time I heard him sing. It was on the show Ally McBeal (did you ever watch that?). I was one of the skeptical ones who thought that it was just some nerd lip-syncing to someone else. Then, the next morning I was watching one of the morning shows and they had him on, and I was blown away that he was for real! I've been a fan ever since!

So, that got me thinking about Ally McBeal, one of the things that was so fun about the show was the music. And she had this theme song (which I am totally sad to say I can't remember what it is at the moment) and she would walk around with it playing in her head, then if something happened to get her "off her groove" the music would scratch to a halt. SO, a little confession here, I still like to pretend I have a theme song playing in my head and I like to sing it in my head when I am a little off of my groove... to get it back.

So, if you had a theme song what would it be? I can't really do a poll because it is just open, but leave a comment. My theme songs have ranged from "I'm so excited!" by the Pointer Sisters {I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it} to "So what" by Pink {I've got a brand new attitude and I'm gonna wear it tonight}. So if you don't have one, go get one, and tell me what it is - I'm just sayin'.

I have to say, I have never really like Josh Groban. He totally bugs. Wow. I'd forgotten about Ally Mcbeal. That brings back decade old memories.
I think my theme song changes depending on what mood I'm in. There is definitely some ABBA in there. Ok, mostly ABBA. What else? All show tunes. I can't think right now. I'll get back to you.

That is where I first heard Josh Groban, too. I didn't watch Ally McBeal, but my roommate did, and we all came in when we heard him singing...good times!
My theme song changes, too, but right now I would have to say "you and I" by Ingrid Michaelson. Go here to hear it:

My theme song changes too... but a lot of times, it is just silence. I think that came about because one summer I worked at a candy factory and I listened to 8 straight hours of radio, and when I couldn't stand that anymore I listened to books on tape. Eventually, I just preferred the silence (well, talking actually... but too much of that was frowned upon and our supervisor we dubbed the frosting nazi). Anyway, I find that when I'm angry is when I have theme songs mostly... I prefer to listen to music loudly in my car like Matchbox 20.

LOL. I LOVE Ally McBeal! That show cracks me up!

I totally have a theme song. But, then I live my life in a musical.
