In early 2007 I was listening to a lot of Cheryl Lynn's first record. To be fair, I'm always listening to that record, it's totally crazy. In January of last year, I found that "Got To Be Real", in addition to being maybe my Favorite Song Of All Time, seemed like a pretty good motto for the year. And I can say in retrospect that in 2007, THINGS GOT MIGHTY REAL. In good and bad ways. No regrets.
I don't remember my motto for 2008 and I don't want to bother looking it up. It's probably buried deep in this blog, but honestly who cares, right? Let's keep going.
Last night hanging out with Hunter I was brainstorming (which is what I usually do when convening with other Grand Dames of Leisure, respect the process honey). I came up with two good mottos for 2009. The runner up is:
HEY, YOU'RE ALREADY DOWN THERE...I like the idea of being "down there", as it refers both to anatomy, geography and the feeling of being 'down' as both "in the know" and "depressed". Like the opening of that Sylvester song where they say "I've been down so long that getting up hasn't even crossed my mind." But I've decided on my motto for 2009, I think, stolen from Dr. Seuss:
IT'S FUN TO HAVE FUN, BUT YOU HAVE TO KNOW HOW.
