I hope you got fat...

I had to hide my love from my first college roommates, they were good girls who didn't understand carnal music, but my second semester gals took the news of my favorite music group being the Violent Femmes with much thanksgiving and jubilation. These gals were my peeps, they understood me and oh the fun we had. Of course now we're all old, married and boring with no recent arrests or sting operations to speak of but whatever.

And truth be told, I can't really listen to the Violent Femmes anymore because their language offends my grown-up ears. Can't do it. But back in the day I LOVED them. I was recently reminded of one of their classy hits entitled "I hope you got fat" (he hopes his ex-love got fat so she'll want to see him come back) when my husband brought home a whole box of my favorite raspberry zingers. "Do you want me to get fat?" I asked him. I can't say no if they're in the house. Can't do it.

Now I know I'm not fat so please don't send hate mail or plan an intervention, but I want to be fit, cut, and sculpted. I want to be a work of art like little Miss Def Leppard groupie pants, or if that's too much to ask I would just like my regular butt back, the one that I had when I moved to this boring, I mean beautifully peaceful little town three years ago. Is that too much to ask? Without the raspberry zingers I'd say no that's not too much to ask, but with them... heck, I think it's time I embrace the new me.

After all Rick loves my new buttonkatonk so why shouldn't I?
Ah, ha! So that's why we have zingers in the house. The sneaky devil.

Sounds like a good hubby to me.
I love it (and hate it) when my hubby brings home my favorite snack. :)

I still LOVE the Femmes. :)

haaaaaa haaaaa!!!!!!!! I was just thinking about the "sting operation" the other day. Yeah, I had to take off the Femmes and Sublime from my ipod, my YW are always playing with my ipod and well...i am enough of a hypocrite without listening to music that I would advise them not to...ahh, being a grown up!

I just had a facebook friend comment about how I had turned him on to violent femmes... (Interesting that you didn't mention that we also loved Milli Vanilli). I have little ones so I don't listen to them much, but if I hear it on the radio, I turn it up. Fun times.

When I'm a-walking I strut my stuff
and I'm so strung out. I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out.

I never liked the raspberry zingers because I hate imitation shredded coconut! (Love real coconut.) Frank is fond of showing he loves me by bringing home treats he knows I like. I love it and hate it at the same time!
