  • I was ridiculed in the car yesterday for being the one who WANTED to listen to Air Supply. (And I'm 10-15 years younger than the other two people.)

  • Sister Christian was on the radio on the way to work today. Holy irony Batman.

  • LOL!!!! I used to have a boom box and tape songs! I hated that the DJ would cut into the song at the end by talking over the music. He didn't allow for that "authentic" quality to the tape.

    ROFLMAO at taping songs off the radio. I guess I wasn't the only one who did that, huh?? LOL. Oh the memories!
