Who's jammin' to my nasty groove?

Tonight, Josh and I were driving back to Brooklyn from Westchester County, where his parents live. We're borrowing a car for a planned day trip to Sag Harbor next weekend. I think I've mentioned that I rarely sing anymore because I only ever sung when I was driving — my voice is awesome when confined inside an automobile — and since moving to New York, I'm so rarely in a car. Well, there was an '80s-fest happening on the radio this evening, and this was simply wonderful. A 40-minute drive gives you plenty of time to prepare for your audition at Juilliard.

Tangent: Why did the fast version of Alphaville's "Forever Young" not get more airplay than the slow version? It's without question 100 times better.

Anyway, after "Rosanna" (Toto's songs always make me cry) and "Jessie's Girl" (Rick Springfield's hotness always makes me cry), Janet Jackson's "Nasty" came on. I launched into an educational rambling of Paula Abdul's appearance as Miss Janet's backup dancer in the video, and proceeded to belt out the lyrics. Right around the time we got to "Who's that in that nasty car?" I stopped for a second, clutched my chest and winced.

ME: Ooh. Heartburn.
JOSH: You shouldn't have eaten that nasty fruit.

One point Josh.

Off topic, I was watching Law & Order: SVU not too long ago when my TV froze just here:



It's now my new favorite semi-expletive. "Oh, Christ melons! I have heartburn!"

I don't know what's better: Christ melons or that's a whole boll of shit! (I have been saying the latter a great deal.)

I LOVE "a whole boll of shit"! If this blog has brought us nothing else, it's brought us that gem. We are richer for it.
