Apr. 21st, 2004

For some reason, I woke up this morning with the Get Along Gang theme stuck in my head. This was the result of a lengthy, probably stupid, dream about social injustice. "Each one's so special in his own way," the theme song says. Montgomery's the leader, and he's such a good sport, and there's Zipper, the lean machine. Is that what the lyrics are? I'd had that one wrong for years. Zipper was a bit of an ass, from what I remember, but the whole excercize thing really worked for him.

What really stuck in my incoherant, stumble-across-the-laundry-minefield-to-hit-the-snooze-button mind, is, if each one's so special in their own way--his own way, this was the mid-80's--and even if "logical Portia will figure it out," there are two characters who are NOT special in their own way.

"There's Woolma and Dottie with the spirit."

That hardly seems fair.

I assume we're talking about cheer and pep, and not the Holy Spirit, I don't remember the speaking in tongues episode.

Be thankful. Could have been 'New Zoo Review' (comin' right at you!).

In other horriffic news, there's a live action Fat Albert movie being made at this very moment.

Be afraid.

Eh, I think I'll pass on that. I like my racial stereotyping less blatant.

I acually had New Zoo Review wedged in my jingle cortex last week. I don't think I've thought of the Get-Along Gang this year, though.

Re: Annoying jingles
Rarely. Usually I just have dreams about Microsoft Excel, or werewolves.

Which is the song with the horrible dancing man for the amusement park? I've gotten that tune stuck in my head a great many times over the week.

That's probably it, yes :) I don't watch much TV, but that commercial haunted me for days.

I love the Vengaboys song. It reminds me of being in Ireland, since that's where I first heard it. It's a good exercise song.

I liked New Zoo Review better than Get Along Gang. Still, the award for Best Theme Song has to go to Gummi Bears. I have an a cappella version of it on my computer somewhere.

For some reason, this is reminding me of the Davy and Golliath episodes I see for sale in the Christian book catalog.

*yawn* naptime.

Got the acapella version. The Swedish version is particularly disorienting.

Get some rest! I don't know how New York manages with a full hour less per day than we have. Poor planning.
