Not really; well, not in this diary. I’d been urged to ‘sex up’ my titles so you see the result.
But it did get you here.

Actually, one wasted day and stoney might this past week, something happened between reading or watching tv, not sure which.

And what it was caused me to remember Molly Ivins and what she said to ‘activists’: So keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin’ ass and celebratin’ the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.”

I think it was the idea of nonsense in seeing what’s going on in this world. That led to remembering songs/music I heard while ‘growing up’ (and yes, one does ‘grow down’) and how there wasn’t such nonsensical songs/music today. Or at least that I’m aware of; if someone knows of performers doing silly.nonsensical songs/music nowadays as I’m about to provide you,please let me know of them.

So in an effort to bring smiles and grins -some ‘fun’-to others during a time of nonsensical occurrences, I offer the following:
This song was my introduction to ‘it doesn’t matter how good you are at performing if the judges don’t like what you are doing’. It was an 7th grade ‘talent show’ and me and my friend were performing/mimicking to the following record. After the awards were given and we didn’t receive any, our teacher came up to us and said,”You were the best performers but your subject matter offended the judges”; oh,well.

For all those who remember -and those who don’t- Tom Lehrer:
