Scratching my own funny bone for shits and giggles. Lampooning books, music and being a single woman over 40. Recording observations with an almost Seinfeldian obsession for the minutiae of life. Things can get sweary around here. You understand.

Hey it's pretty cool when your daughter wants to emulate your blogging habits and flex her imagination. My spunky girl has penned her first zombie piece...please visit her blog.

I dunno, how are you supposed to communicate with someone born after the release of Nevermind?

I kid. The girl writes fully good.

I guess you have this problem on a more regular basis than me. Same problem as my old man has given I was born after Disraeli Gears. A long long time after Disraeli Gears but he stopped listening to music after that.

I handle that same issue by indoctrinating (brainwashing) my daughter towards my musical tastes. My daughter is able to identify Joe Eliot, Robin Zander and Roger Daltry. Although, as a member of her school's 4th/5th grade chorus, she thinks Roger Daltry's pitch is "too high."

Tis very good.

I've got some of the most bizarrely eclectic musical tastes in the world. My children are doomed to be permanently, eccentrically uncool.

But they like them some zombies, so there's always that, eh?

YOBBO: Strangely enough she was the only kid in her music class that knew Kurt Cobain.

STEVE: I wonder what she'd think of that dude out of the Scissor Sisters.

MOKO: She appreciates encouragement. Thanks man.

FLINT: She wants to read Max Brook's guide now. How cool is that?

And after Max Brooks' guide point her towards 'World War Z' by the same author.

Steve said...

My brother just finished reading World War Z and is encouraging me to read that I have a better insight into what he thinks about late at night when he can't sleep.

Natalia the Russian Spy said...

BONDI: ARGGGHHH. I am usually the apostrophe Nazi. I can't believe I wrote Brook's instead of Brooks'. Eternal shame on me.

STEVE: I dare say it wouldn't be as bad as wondering when the cat will next leave a present.

Steve said...

If you assume the cat will leave a present on a daily basis, you can stop wondering and get on with your life!

Natalia the Russian Spy said...

Nah...too boring.
