You know how teenagers are a strange bunch and do some weird things? When I was a teenager I developed a crush on the musical career of Marilyn Monroe. I think I may have loved her because she and I share a very limited vocal range. But I still have those songs on my i-Pod, and I love them. They have such wholesomely naughty lines in them. [My keyboard has gone sticky and so, despite beating down on the keys, some letters don't turn up. The last line actually came up 'They have such wholesomely naughty lies in them'. I think that works too.] On the way home tonight I was listening to her version of 'A Fine Romance'. Favourite line: True love should have the thrills that a healthy crime has, we don't have half the thrills that the march of time has'. Splendid. Sums it up perfectly. Poetry, lyrics and advertising are the smartest types of writing. They need to be able to get you quickly, strongly, emotionally, succinctly, electrically, visually. It is easy to ramble on forever and fill a novel (says someone who can't do it!! Write a novel that is, not ramble on forever—that I most certainly can do!), but those three modes take more than people give them credit for I think. I am taking their lead and stopping now before I over-labor all my points.
Well, after this at any rate. I got the spotty blue bike on the way home tonight. (It is spotty, but not blue. Very strange.) It went so perfectly with my striped skirt. It was unexpected pattern mixing! Now I'll stop talking. Now. Yep.
Who wore it better?
