We Built This City!

This years Girl's Weekend ROCKED! (As is clearly demonstrated by Suzy, above.) We tore up that town, me and my lassies. OK, maybe "tore up" is a bit of a stretch. We laughed, we cried, we shopped, we drank, and damn did we eat. We even got ushered out of bars at closing time. "You don't have to go home ladies, but you can't stay here" bartenders bellowed while gently pushing on our backs and shooing us out the door. We even met a bizzaro world opposite group of us (Seinfeld episode reference). There was a group of 6 women, also on their 13th annual girls weekend, also staying at the Marriott in the rooms NEXT DOOR to us, and also partying hard at the karaoke bar. Weird. I've said it before but I can't stress enough how much I need my friends. How important true, really good friends are. Just being together brings back old times. Times of less responsibility. Times of less stress. For me, times of less pounds. The perfect recharging activity for all, and now we will start our countdown to next years getaway. Only 362 days away.

For those of us there, and anyone who loves a good 80's song, click here and you'll get the theme of our weekend.

We Built This City

When I got home the kids barely noticed my existence. I guess the days when they would fling themselves into my arms the second I returned from my weekend away are gone. That is, until I said the magic word . . . "presents"

My kids didn't even ask for presents!!! I shouldn't have spent the money. Now I have a couple hideaway gifts though....

We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll!
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

It's just another Sunday in a tired old street
Police have got the choke hold, and we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars
Don't tell us you need us, 'cause we're the ship of fools
Looking for America, crawling through your schools

Don't you remember ...

Marconi plays the Mamba,
Listen to the radio -
Don't you remember?
We built this city,
We built this city on rock and roll
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Neither did this girls weekend moment. A random man turns the corner singing a song and dancing by...the girls join in the chorus:

I live in a silver mine and I call it beggars tomb;
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune,
Anybodys choice, I can hear your voice.
Wo, oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?

Come hear uncle johns band by the riverside,
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.

I thought it was Tony plays the Mamba....

So, after I dropped you ladies off & made my way to get the boys....guess what song came on the radio? You guessed it..'we built this city'...and I've NEVER heard it on the radio before...coincidence? I think NOT!
