Ok, fine. How about I just take the weekends off?

This is my all time favorite song ever. I first heard it in 1987 when I saw the video on 120 Minutes on MTV when Mom and I first moved to Indiana. You couldn't get cable where we lived in Minnesota, it was too far away from everything.

I was 15, Dad had just left, David had moved to Minneapolis with Stephanie and it was just me and Mom. I went from living in the woods in the middle of nowhere to living in a large town just across the border from Chicago. From a school with like, 500 kids to a school with something in the 2000 range.

I could have been starring in my own coming of age/good girl gone bad/after school special by the way I crossed over to the dark side.


  1. It seems odd to hear La Porte referred to as a "large town" but I guess compared to Osage...

  2. YAY......happy to hear you're sticking with blogging. I really enjoying reading. A lot of it is similar to my childhood.
    Take Care Beth!

  3. I had the same reaction as Phil! It's all relative, I guess. :)

  4. Kristen Hirsh and Tanya Donnelly are a okay in my book. Counting Backwards is still on my playlist after all these years.


Here's where you put your two cents.
