Things That Make Me Feel Old

Stumbling across this kind of thing on the internet. The B-52's today.Sigh. Time marches on. Why, I remember the good old days, the Private Idaho days, circa 1979. Freshman year. Dancin' to the original Love Shack late into the night during pom pom squad camp. And doing the Rock Lobster. Oh, the Rock Lobster. Ordering pizza past curfew and talking about boys until 2am. Somewhere tucked away in a box is my pink punk sunglasses and my new wave polka dot dress with the big heart shaped belt. Sigh. Has it really been that long? Say it ain't so, Fred.

Oh girl, I saw then in concert at a small theater in Houston 1978. We were on the front row and dancing like crazy. We were finally told we would have to stop dancing so we left! I had on my brand new dress my friend Carole had made. We all called it my trash bag dress cause it was a brown and one piece strapless dress. I wore it that night and one other time out to the clubs. But OH MY! I love me some B-52's!

"I was good, I could talk, a mile a minute, on this caffeine buzz I was on, we were really hummin...

...dance in the garden in torn sheets, in the rain...dance in the garden in torn sheets in the rain, in the rain."

That just popped into my head.


You know, they're still doing pretty darn well, those B-52's!

where were you people when I was struggling in a small town because I liked the B-52's?!?! At my hick school I endured much ridicule for this!
