La Di Da Da

This song has been on my mind for the last 2 days. I don't know when it flew through the transom of my mind but it did and then it got all hung up in there and I can't shake it loose. Probably because it's high on the list of Top Ten Catchiest Songs Evah.

As an added bonus my darling Anne loves this band and it's her birthday on Sunday so it seemed a fitting song for the Jukebox.

Here's a picture of Anne, taking pictures at my house, back when she visited in early October. This might not be the most "hi, I'm Anne and I'm darling" photo in the world but it's my favorite of her and here's why: girl is a mad fool with the camera. Seriously, if she wanted to, she could totally be the next Annie Leibowitz. Here's the thing about good's not just about having a camera at the ready (which Anne does) but about first seeing something and then capturing that same something through the lens so that others see it, too. Anne can do that. In spades, So catching her in the act of seeing was kinda significant to me. Also, she was wearing this ploofy purple thing in her hair, which is called an "Instant Party" which MAB gave her when she came to our office and which she then proceeded to gamely wear for the rest of the evening. And I thought that was super cute.

Happy Friday. And a happy early birthday, Anne. Love you.

Oh, I also have to confess, the 'instant party' is now clipped to the green nose clip at my desk. I guess I'll have to post that, too.

Love me some Proclaimers - I'm desperate for a new "Sunshine on Leith" CD, I destroyed mine from use.

Happy Birthday, Anne!
