Cheese and Crackers... it's August already!
anyways... so I was laying in bed this morning, while I lazily got to enjoy the 30 seconds before I had to spring into action as MOM-o-MATIC....
and during this 'me-time', I was trying to think of who to pit up against each other this week.
Now a few of my bloggerrific pals out there take part in these SPDs and WBW's... (Self Portrait Days and Way Back Wednesdays) I know Christie with an E does it a lot... and I think she gets them from some Mama Duck lady. not quite sure, really, but the point is that the whole WBW thing had me thinking about life back in the day.
So I spent the first half of my 'me-time'.... yes... a whole 15 seconds, thank you very much!... I spent the first half thinking about CYO.
CYO was our Catholic Youth Organization that pretty much everyone belonged to when we were in high school. even if you didn't belong to it, cause you might have been Jewish or maybe nothing... (sorry... there just wasn't much religious variety in White Bread Sayreville growing up!) but regardless of whether or not you went to church, or whatever religion you practiced at home or DIDN'T practice... if you were a teenager... you went to the CYO Dances.
and invariably... in the late 80's.... there were a PLETHORA of campy-songs that everyone did a dance or sung along to. now for my younger readers... I'm not talking about how you "got down on your knees" when Madonna was Burning Up For YOUR Love.... we're going back a little further.
So this week, I'm asking y'all to Dippity-Do your hair, stick your fashion-color Goody comb in your back pocket, roll up your guess jeans and come to the dance with me. ok.... you all here???
Good... now before you sneak into the back corner where it's really dark and the Chaperones don't go near... that's right... before you go back there to drink the vodka you snuck in or God knows what else, cause you know I was one of the kids who wasn't back there!!!
Anyways... before you go off to your respective dance areas... I need to you to vote for the BEST high-school dance participation song.
Just to level the playing field, I am NOT going to put "Summer Lovin'" into the mix..... I have too many girl voters that would choose that song, anyways.
no.... this week... I'm looking for the raddest of the Rad.... I'm giving you
If you don't know these songs, you're young enough to google them and find out more about them. If you're my age + or - a few years... no explanation should be necessary. What's it gonna be, Gang...
Are we going to line up and pull our knees in tight a la Rocky Horror Style, or are the boys going to sing to the girls?
Which song kicks more ass, gang? You only have til wednesday to vote... as I'm leaving for another week come Thursday.
Also... as an added bonus... to show appreciation for the effort of voting, I'll be crowning a King and Queen of this week's match-up, and their merits will be displayed on the blog during my vacation.... I'll pick the guy and girl with the best... er... COMMENT(S)... as my bonus winners. Each winner will also receive a limited edition Cze-Johnson Fever Soundtrack, High School Dance Edition.... compiled by yours truly, and mailed when I return from Chicago.
So DING DING...... let the fight begin!
