And, no, I don’t have any excuse for Air Supply…

I was helping a user out at work the other day with her new laptop, and we got to talking about music.

Long story short, she is a fan of ’80s tunes (and, really, who isn’t?) and I told her I’d shoot her a list of what I owned and if she saw anything on it, let me know.

Before I sent her the email, I glanced over what I did own, and made an addendum to the unsent email:

“And, no, I don’t have any excuse for Air Supply. I can’t even remember why it’s there. I don’t even listen to it, but I know I downloaded it for a reason. Now it sounds like I’m feeling guilty and trying to explain my way out of it.”

Shortly after I sent it, I got her reply:

“As long as I don’t come across Tiffany, Debbie G., or the like, I’ll hold my tongue.”

“Holy hell. Don’t open that .txt document at all, then.” Came my rebuttal, lame as it was.

I looked at my mp3s again, a little closer, after I sent that reply.

I’m in for a beat down.

I have the old…. “um, my wife asked me to download that”


I’m always amazed at what you’ll confess to. And so… a new user? Who you are sharing tunes with? Are you planning to ‘shoot’ anything else her way? [sorry, I have the maturity level of a 12 year-old boy]


Oh please, admit it — you like to do your own “Puttin’ on the Hits” routines to “I Think We’re Alone Now” and “Electric Youth.” ADMIT IT.

And, uh, I would also like to know the answer to Snooze’s question, thankyouverymuch.

I too love my 80’s with extra cheese. I’ve stopped short of downloading any Chicago/Pete Cetera, but one of these days I know I’ll crack.


And what exactly is wrong with Debbie G.?

Oh yea, on your zune playlist we will see that you like show tunes, 80’s girl pop, and Milli Vanilli. 😛


If you have to ask, Ace… :wacko:


Yeah, so I suck on the replies. 🙁 Mykl, see, now there’s a great reason to get married. 😆 Snooze, :lol:. She’s a lawyer here. If I said anything more, I’d probably lose my job. Speaking of which, I should blog about the Harassment class I had to attend. (It was required for EVERYONE, not just me). Lesley, you get two kudos for the ‘puttin’ on the hits’ reference. Good job. Sparks, I hate Chicago because I hate that I know all the words to their more popular songs and I don’t know why. Ace, I know you are joking.… Read more »
