Just Plain Lazy

The Baroness, delicate flower that she is, is very tired. She had many late nights out, way-y-y-y past her bedtime, in the lake-besotten state of Minnesota. Oh, ya.

And now, whilst I know I should be sparkling and travelogue-y and bursting with stories, I'm instead dull and lifeless. Rain checks all around on sparkly for tomorrow. Promise.

I feel kind of lazy doing this - I've never done this before - but meh. I'll get over it soon. I hope you'll be able to move on too.

And because people, for some strange reason, want to know the music that I'm listening to, I will divulge the rockin' travel tunes I loaded up before I left:

Countess Momma: Oh, you are a clever boots, Miss! I thought I would throw that in and that it would be glossed over completely. Who knew there were such thorough readers? I'm delighted!

Not Afraid to Use It said...

The scary thing is that 90% of these songs are on my player, too. You rock woman!!!

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess NATUI: You so funny! The only time I rock is in my car, and on the treadmill. Most of the other times I lounge. Or MOR it. Ya. I'm old. Deal with it.

Indeed cool that we share the same taste in music - I believe my family calls it eclectic. I just call it me.

Mental P Mama said...

Great tunes! Every time I hear What's the Frequency Kenneth? I think of poor Dan Rather...

Oh, and Milkshake has to be the best song ever. Just ask my kids how much they loooove hearing me sing along.

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess MPM: You may love the regular "Milkshake", but you really haven't lived until you've heard it sung in the dulcet lounge tones of Richard Cheese. I suggest you hasten to his website and take a listen.

And I added that REM song because of Dan Rather - he's kind of sexy in a brainiac/sugar daddy sort of way...

I LOVE Richard Cheese. I had Baby Got Back stuck in my head for a full day last week. I only have one album though. Need the rest. Immediately.

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess H: Welcome! I just discovered Mr. Cheese through a fine fellow on my blogroll, Bubs over at Sprawling Ramschackle Compound. Imagine my excitement when I found out you can order him through iTunes! Now I have a marvy little toe-tappin' sampling. This make the Baroness v. happy.

I LOVEEEE Richard Cheese ... great stuff!!! And don't think your little Tony Danza song slipped past me -- also a fave! ....Babs Peapod

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess Babs: Well, who's the eagle eye? Kudos for your mad observational skillz. I heard 2 house painters sing those lyrics once; it just cracked me up.
