Pointless knowledge

I found a pretty good site for 80s song lyrics -- not only is it actually cleanly designed (and any pop-ups are blocked by Firefox) with lots of listings but it has background information! So I'm looking up songs as they come up on my player and have learned stuff (oooh, that I needed to know!) like "One Night in Bangkok" comes from the musical Chess and that Wang Chung's "Dance Hall Days" does not mention Christ -- I swear, in the lyrics below, where it says "craze" I swear I always thought it was "Christ." I often wondered if "cool on Christ" meant they were into Jesus or not.

Take your baby by the hand
And make her do a high hand stand
Take your baby by the heel
And do the next thing that you feel

We were so in phase
In our dance hall days
We were cool on craze
When I, you and everyone we knew
Could believe, do, and share in what was true
Oh, I said

I'm sure everybody is glad I'm leaving and will stop posting. And when I get back I will snap out of my mania.

Waving bye bye!

Well, I seem about ready to go.

Caleb and I should be leaving in around 45 minutes for the airport. Hopefully there aren't bit security delays. I heard today isn't a big flying day. I think I've gotten everyting packed that I need (including lots of prezzies for our kind hosts) and the petsitter, mail, newspaper, bills and clients should all be settled on the homefront, so here's hoping everything happens as we plan! We're arriving at Heathrow tomorrow around 7 a.m. and taking the Thameslink up to Rob's flat in London, then having breakfast with him and Marta and probably crashing out unconscious ;) What a plan!

Later, gators!
