Don Your Top Hats and Boots, Y’all…It’s Monday

Well, chickens…it’s Monday. Sad to say. Time to set the alarm, pack the lunches, drop off the dry cleaning, and head off to the firm, the Rayburn Building, the daycare, and the scary underground drone tunnels of Crystal City.

What to do when it’s off to work, but you’re still in weekend mode? Well, there’s really only one prescription I can offer:

1) Wake up in the morning
2) Step outside
3) Take a deep breath
4) Get real high
5) Scream at the top of your lungs: “What’s going on?”

Do you hear that sound, DC? It’s the sound of a whole bunch of people downloading the same song from iTunes at the same time.

4 Non Blondes! How much did I love this song when it came out in 1993. And oh, the zaniness. The crazy hats. The goggles. The stripe-y socks. The boots. The whole attitude. It makes me ask myself, “What happened to your youth? What happened to your rebellious nature?” And then I remember, I never had a rebellious nature. But I sure thought they were cool!

And now, if you’ll excuse me…I’ve been called to move to Portland and sell homemade, organic soap and offer my services as a harmonizing back-up vocalist to a chick band.

    I’m not sure what to say about the goggles and hat paired with the boxers and bathrobe. Mental patient chic?
