Saturday Night-Posted Friday Night Musical Interlude "Spring Ahead 2013" Edition


 "Begin the Beguine" as performed by Artie Shaw and his Orchestra sometime (I assume) in the late 1930s or 1940s.

This is my delayed Friday night musical interlude posted on Saturday night.

Sorry for the lack of updates on Friday night or earlier today. I did not take the computer home with me (and today when I retrieved it from the office, there was a bit of trouble in trying to access the building, and although I got into the office anyway, there may be some follow-through since I did not follow the protocol, except I didn't know what was the protocol and should indeed have access).

I emailed my top boss about the situation (after calling her right after it happened to tell her about it). She requested I send an email with a written account.


"A New Day for You" by Basia (Time and Tide release, 1987)

Sorta looks like Kristof in drag way back in the day, what with the Polish school girl outfit ...

The reason I didn't take the computer home as I regularly do on Fridays is that I went last night with Andrea & Co. to Medieval Madness in Old Town Alexandria, where we had an absolulely wonderful time. I intend to post an entry complete with pictures (most of which were NOT taken by me but by others with decent iPhone cameras).

"Love U More" by Sunscreem (1992)

The British pop-group Steps did a happier remake of this -- with less violent lyrics -- but I can't find that video. Despite the violence of some of the lyrics, I love the the song with its captivating and "cascading" instrumentals.

As for tonight, I'm going to Old Ebbitt Grill shortly to sit at the old bar and have my favorite dinner and drink. Then I plan to go to No. 9 and finally to Nellie's to meet Wendy on the late side. At least that's the plan. Tomorrow, I should do some clothes shopping (I never finished my original planned $600 worth of clothing purchases as a result of my tax refunds but only got up to just over half that amount). I made it to the gym today and had a decent workout, though I didn't swim because the pool was too crowded, so I don't have to go tomorrow.

Oh, yes, tonight is the start of daylight savings time -- it's time for that annual charade that lasts for 8 frickin' months. And, NO, it doesn't "save energy." It's mostly just a scam we have adopted for a variety of American puritanical and business interest reasons.
