Back from the beach

The beach was great! The weather was perfect and I had a lot of fun hanging out with everyone, but I was glad to get home and see Teddy. We listened to a lot of music while we were down there and I got made fun because the cds were mine. I am secure enough to say that one of my guilty pleasure songs is "Come Clean" by Hilary Duff (you know, the song they play at the beginning of Laguna Beach). Despite everyone making fun of me, I held my ground and remained loyal to it. Other than that, most of the songs we listened to were a bit naughty, but that's what I like so everyone else just had to go along.

On to my first topic for the week, I would like to get everyone's opinion about Fergie's song "London Bridge." I just don't get it. I guess this shows how much I am just not cool with the "kids" these days (of course, Fergie is actually several years older than me, but whatever). She asks in the song "how come every time you come around my London Bridge, you wanna go down?" Honestly, if I am interpreting the song correctly, I just don't see the problem. It seems as if she is on the winning side of the scenario. I shall continue to ponder this mystery so if anyone wants to provide an explanation, I would be happy to hear it.

You think you're not cool with the kids? I've never even heard (or heard of) that song.

My first exposure to Shakira was on my 57-year-old boss's iPod. Top that.

Wow. I feel 17 again. You should try to listen to the song, as I am still baffled.

I just looked the song up myself , never heard of the artist either
I'm so backwoods and need to turn on the radio once in awhile.

Avery and I like to jam out to the oldies. She's a Elvis fan :)

Fergie I know. The song absolutely baffles me.

I can't decide if she is the one wanting to hop on him, or if she is indirectly asking (the unknown party) if that is all he wants from her? hm. i think it's silly, but has a good rhythm that carries the song.

I am a fan of most of the songs at the beginning of the teeny bopper series shows (Laguna Beach, Sweet 16, etc) . They really make me want to watch the show more.

Katie, you should have gone over to Jamie's parents' place/beach... they totally would have been so much fun (unless, of course, they locked you out of the condo... and you had to pee, but after waiting for hours to "go", you went to the neighbors and "took care of business"... and got a beer on the way)

Oh, and did you see Perez's blog? He totally rags on Fergie for pissing her pants... several times.
