A failed post, a silent laugh and I go under the knife.

I was sitting at my computer yesterday with Blogger opened and a blank page in front of me, waiting for inspiration to strike and my fingers to start playing the keyboard like an organ. Instead, I ended up going out to clean the dishes and start the crock-pot with some chicken soup.

I can’t even begin to count the number of times I have started a post and ended up with it like this, never to see publication (or even some semblance of realization).

Here is an example: I started thinking about the idea of Theme Music. Friends, family, the average Joe I see walking down the street. What would it sound like if people had their own theme music? So with that in mind I started scouring the Internet for what I would consider to be appropriate theme music for the people I know in life. After a time I had downloaded various television theme songs that I felt were appropriate for my grand idea.

Sadly, this came to a screeching halt, since there is no viable way to upload sound clips to Blogger. It seems there are ways available t you, but they involve subscribing to various Internet file-hosting sites, which is far beyond what I had in mind.

Instead, I then started downloading various theme songs from various television shows. One in particular struck me as amusing: Wonder Woman.

And I quote:

"Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman. All the world is waiting for you. And the powers you possess. In your satin tights, fighting for you rights, and the old red, white and blue."

Now, Wonder Woman aired from 1976-1979, a measly three years. And this time period was not exactly at the hieght of the women's lib era. But come on, does she have to be wearing satin tights in order to fight for truth and justice? And just because she is wearing satin tights, does it have to be part of the song? Were they just calling attention to Linda’s legs (which deserve attention, I admit; but enough that they are a part of the theme song?)? I don’t know; there is just something about it that makes me laugh.

Thus is the result of my Theme Music idea, a silent laugh about Linda Carter and her satin tights.

Oh yeah, I go under the knife September 18th. That will be a good thing. I’m sure I’ll have more on this later, but I’m still waiting for the hospital to call with more information.

So beyond that I don’t have much else to say, not that I have said much as of yet. But as always, thanks for tuning in.


  1. I didn't watch a whole lot of Wonder Woman as a teen, so I'm not familiar with her theme song. But "satin tights"? That made me laugh out loud.

    Brilliant idea about the theme music. I'll have to ponder that one. What would be mine? Though I am pretty certain it will not include any references to my underwear.

  2. Glad to see you have a surgery date. Hopefully it will be very easy procedure.
    Theme music is hard to assign to individuals. What would mine be? Something very fast as I can't seem to slow down as I get older even though my body says I need to some times.
    What would Dad's be? Something from Woodstock would be applicable. You can take the boy out of Berkeley but you can't take Berkeley out of the boy.


You went to all the trouble to get yourself here, you might as well say something about it.
