Give Me the Beach Boys and Free My Soul I Wanna Get Lost In Your Rock and Roll....Come Sing It With Me I Know You Want To..

...and drift away. Ohhhhhhhhhhh

Title has nothing to do with the post except that song is on and the Beach Boys are coming to Peoria and I am nothing if not a Beach Boy fan. Move over Jesse Katsopolis, Sarah is their number one fan. I am hoping to win tickets and then I won't be able to decide who to take and the Beach Boys themselves show up at my door and we jam in my living room and they end up taking my whole family to the concert where during the encore we are all called up on stage to sing Wouldn't It Be Nice. A girl can dream no? ( My daughters are obsessed with Full House and I am beginning to wonder if it is affecting my sanity watching so many episodes.If I start wearing legwarmers and scrunchies call that dude from Intervention.)

Just wanted to take the time to brag a bit, toot my own horn if you will. I have been pretty lazy as of late posting awards given and tags but this one was so cool I had to let the sunshine in. The brilliance that is GreenJello, which despite her picking the nastiest flavor of jello for her blog name, is an awesome blogger, nominated one of my lines of my blog to be on Blogtations and guess what? Yep they actually put it up there! So go on over there and check it out and then go on over to GreenJello and read her stuff she is totally awesome.

I also wanna give a shout out to a couple of bloggers who are just the bee's knees, the Cat's meow, the butter to a loaf of yummy Avanti's bread....bloggers who honestly I have no idea how long they have been around but they rock, seriously they rock the dance floor or the stripper pole or the metal cage. They are a couple of people new to my blog role but people I do a little dance of joy when I see they have written anything new. One of the people I stalk is Rooked who is just plain and simple an amazing writer, I actually read his posts from begining to the end and that's saying alot for me, since I usually read his stuff early in the morning when the caffeine is just kickin in and I start to shake a bit from the overload to my system. He can turn a post about homeless crazy people and tornadoes into a work of art. I am a fan. My other favorite blog of the moment is Angela over at My Bella Figlia . She takes awesome pictures of her (almost as cute as mine) kids. Her posts are heartfelt, funny and just plain good. So go over there and read her now!

This is kind of taking the place of my rules for getting the awards and since it has been quite a while and those bloggers that gave me the awards probably think I have forgotten about them I really haven't! I have just been busy with life and school and love, and also all my new magazine subscriptions just came in the mail and everyone has been neglected, so please forgive me.

I am off to go and workout. I actually met the gym goddess yesterday and she is really nice. Bitch! She asked me if I was a hairdresser. Which I get that question alot and despite really wanting to believe its because my hair is so awesome I know its because most women can only fathom a hairdresser wearing their hair so short. "I wish I could wear my hair like yours" Which is what the perfect girl told me as she took her waist length hair out of her ponytail and it literally bounced on her back as it glistened in the sunshine (and it rained yesterday) . I almost told her to shut the hell up but I just smiled and offered her a power bar. Cause I'm nice like that.

Happy Friday !

I totally thought those lyrics were better than the original and I did the "Drift away-ay-ay" part out loud. So thanks. And congrats on the award!

Braja said...

The first concert I ever went to was a Beach Boys concert in South Australia, where I grew up. They sang, "I wish they all could be South Australian girrrrrrrls" :))

Katie said...

Perfect girl is nice too. Suck! I love that you offered her a power bar!!

Hey Sarah - I'm totally singing along! My little girls think that they discovered the Beach Boys. We dance around the kitchen singing into spoons!

The award thing is a mixed blessing isn't it? I love getting them -- but then it's such a chore... but I want to pass them on... but then I feel bad for the people I don't give awards to...
Sheesh.

I gotta go check out green jello. I actually agree with her color choice -- throw a little vodka in there and Yum-O!

Save me!! You posted this thread two hours ago and for the last hour and a half I have been singing this song.... I can't believe the Beach Boys are still alive! I remember Johnny Parkhurst's 13th birthday party, I was soooo in love with him, though I have no idea what I got him for his birthday. Roberta showed up with the new Beach Boy's album for him, I was out, she was in! Memories... like the corners of your mind...

I LOVE that epi of Full House. Of course, my kid is obsessed as well and we watch it all the time. I played Kokomo over and over and over again when I was in middle school. I have tons of BB on my iPod as we speak.

Robin said...

Best. Post. Title. Ever.
"God Only Knows" is one of the best songs ever.

Debbie said...

I'm more than a little disappointed that the goddess is nice. Makes hating her less satisfying.

Vic said...

Do you know I had to read the title THREE times before I could see the connection to the song and the Beach Boys?? Either I need glasses, or my brain only sees what it expects to see.
And yes, now I'm singing it too. :)
Have a great weekend, Sarah!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Tell you what, you take the Beach Boys and leave me Uncle Jessie. I'll keep him and his 80's mullett too!

Casey said...

Now I want to watch some Full House reruns, thanks! I can't believe you befriended the Gym Goddess. You're so nice! My SIL is a hairdresser and while we were waiting to meet her for the first time, Jamie and I took bets on whether or not she'd have 80's hair.

Captain Dumbass said...

Full House. Just typing it makes my eyes bleed.

Coachdad said...

Great post and going to check out the blogs you gave props to. Good luck winning the Beach Boys tickets!

Beth said...

Leg warmers and scrunchies. It is important to remember the horrors of our past.

Hope your weekend was grand!

Jenni said...

oh how I love a blog with a Full House reference. also, my brother's girlfriend saw the Beach Boys in concert w/John Stamos on the drums!

Sarah, congrats on the blogquote thing. Not sure what that is but it sounds like a plenty-big big deal. And thanks for the memories trigger. I won tickets to a Joni Mitchell concert in LA with backstage passes from the local NPR radio station. Talk about the bees' knees!

But above all, you report you are busy in matters of "LOVE.". That gets you a BIG congrats.

Damn it! Now I have that song stuck in my head...
