Skype & Sex & Candy... oh my.

Holy Moly.
I used Skype for the first time tonight & seriously...
where have I been?
Hello 1993 video phone.
So entertaining.
I'm much better at communicating when I can actually look at the person as opposed to just hearing their voice!
I find that I also like to just sit there and make stupid faces at the other person when the conversation gets quiet.
Also entertaining: doing the robot.
It's like I'm 6 years old.

That was off topic.. MOVING ON.

Verse by verse, dissect a favorite song you had in 7th grade.
Gah, Who liked Junior High? NOT ME. It was horrible. I mean, I had some good times and all... but kids are so nasty to one another at that point. 5th-8th grade are the WORST. High School was all good and well, I'd do it again if I could- great times were had... Junior High, ICK.
((my face sure does look sweet and baby like though, eh? Should have caught the attitude I could spit though... WOAH BABY, was a I sassy one.))
One of the songs that pops into my head from 7th grade is Sex & Candy by Marcy's Playground. Remember that song? My 7th grade boyfriend, David & I were talking about how we didn't have a song one day while we were hanging out at his house, so we decided whatever song was on the radio when we turned it on would be OUR song. Well, low and behond it was Sex and freaking Candy. We laughed and joked and decided that couldn't be our song... but from then on when it came on we would smile and think about that goofy moment... and it kind of became our song after all. Highly inappropriate for 7th graders, right? I know. Sorry people.
Don't worry... there was only smoochin' going on.

So here it is... torn apart by your's truly!

Hangin' round downtown by myself
(he smelled funny... nobody could stand to be around him)
And I had so much time
To sit and think about myself
(and he didn't understand why nobody wanted to be around him)
And then there she was
Like double cherry pie
(She was there and it made him super excited... like 2 pieces of pie excited, that's serious)
Yeah there she was
Like disco superfly
(she was prob. super high from being at the disco & that's why she didn't notice his stench)
I smell sex and candy here
(The smell of sex and candy overpowered his b.o.)
Who's that lounging in my chair
(some guy was in his chair)
Who's that casting devious stares
In my direction
(and giving him the stink eye because he smelled funny)
Mama this surely is a dream
(no... it's not, but I like it when you call me Mama)
Hangin' round downtown by myself
(still stank)
And I had too much caffeine
(aka booze)
And I was thinkin' 'bout myself
And then there she was
In platform double suede
(hooker... which might explain where the sex smell is coming from)
Yeah there she was
Like disco lemonade
(ahem, again... booze, but the lemon part may explain where the candy smell is coming from)
I smell sex and candy here
(see? it all just came full circle for him)
Who's that lounging in my chair
(same guy in his chair... i feel like he's regressing now)
Who's that casting devious stares
In my direction
(same stink eye... definite regression)
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream
(still not a dream... and we've lost him)

Wow. MOVING, right?
Whew, I know.
Dry your eyes. No need to weep over the beauty that is Sex and Candy.


Yeah, clearly I don't know what the heck they were talking about.
But you don't really either, right?
Just be thankful I didn't do I want it that way by the Backstreet Boys or I want you back by N'Sync, cause I came pretty close. Try "disecting" those. Yeah, that's right...they already did it for you.
