I am wearing a Cowboys football jersey as a nightshirt. My fingernails and piggie toes are painted the same color blue as in the jersey (not by a conscience decision,, this time). My hair is a bit spiky and wild. My eyelids always have just the right shade of eyeshadow and a glint of sexy sparkle magic on them. The accessories I sport are trendy (cheap, but they look good). You could say I don't LOOK my age. I feel YOUNG. HIP. RELEVANT...(cough)
-----I realized last night that I have grown a fascination for John Mayer. I decided that him hanging in my stocking might make me smile (his music, not his being. Seriously guys, if your heads are gonna be in the gutter all the time like mine, we need to meet up!!! NUM--- John Mayer!!!).
This recent discovery comes as a shock to me, the self described little rocker chic from the 80's.
80's FLASHBACK!!!!! Rock stars we were!!!! Spent that night flirting with the carnies to stay on the coasters longer and get free stuffed animals and funnel cakes. Spent the next morning throwing up Waffle House fare ( I believe the hash browns were smothered, covered and chunked,, I knew you were curious,, you're welcome!!).
(stop laughing).......(really).......(I get it, enough).....(geeze).....
The Seether - Staind - Disturbed - Stonesour - Evanessence - STP - Fuel - Mettallica - Linkin Park - Finger 11 - Nickelback....etc...etc..... loving gal is amazed that a soft singing dude caught her attention. I even have bobbed my head and sang along a time or two.
But this is not the first time I have side stepped my long traveled rocker path.
That baby-faced crooner Michael Buble caught my attention for a while. He may still have a little corner on my market.
Dave Matthews for about 2 minutes, but I think I was drunk and lonely.
I even had a stint with Jack Johnson's "Banana Pancakes" CD until Angus Young came and asked "Can I sit next to you girl?" (a little AC/DC never hurt anyone).
So I guess we can adapt ourselves to growing a little mellow. I don't think I will ever fully leave my hard guitar pounding roots. But a diversion from time to time sounds OK. I won't let it age me.
..........walking into living room to turn off Jessica Simpson's Christmas album....It's too soon.... I'm not ready yet.....
