Missing music

Still in crisis mode. This makes me mean and nasty. Time for posting and blog reading minimal. Trying desperately instead to maximize writing time which is difficult now that the kids are out of school - which makes me meaner and nastier. So I've been loading up all my old CDs onto my new ipod. But I am missing lots of CDs. In particular my Journey, Abba and Doobie Brothers Cds. Strangely enough, Da Man passionately despises these bands.

I suspect foul play. In retaliation I have purchased a particularly treacly song that I don't even like, "Oh Sherrie" by that famous mullet man Steve Perry, which Da Man has informed me is like someone ripping open his back and poking at his central nervous system with a cattle prod. Tonight, when he is sleeping, I shall inflict psychological torture by playing "Oh Sherrie" right next to his ear all night long. If I am feeling compassionate, I shall also mix in some "Dancing Queen" and "Mamma Mia." However, if I am feeling mean, I'll mix in Abba's "Fernando" instead, because I've actually seen him turn 3 shades of green when he hears it. And I shall do this every night until he coughs up my CDs or buys me new ones. Or I might just do it cause it is plain wicked fun. I wonder what kind of dreams he'll have?

Don't hate me cause I'm evil, fear me instead.

Luck with the cds. Torture of the Fernando variety is not to be borne!

I personally love the Abba Best of CD. Probably one of the ones I listen to most while walking on the treadmill.

If you haven't seen Mama Mia, you can play that of an evening to torture Da Man, too--it features an Abba libretto, basically from the Best Of album. Hee!

Kate said...

Haha, great torture methods! Good luck with getting your CDs back :D

Cheryl Kauffman said...

I think you are on to something. Our country can play Abba as an interrogation technique. I hope things calm down for you soon!

Precie said...

Oh, believe me, I fear you.

HUGS!

Sending you cuddles ;0). As for Da Man - will he ever learn I ask? I am now off to listen to Steve Perry on You Tube.

You know, until now I thought you were basically a decent human being. At least way way way way down deep inside. But now you show your true evil. I'm feeling ill just imagining that music. Poor Da Man!

C.R. Evers said...

I hope the new songs help you feel better! :0)

And don't feel guilty about pummeling whoever took your missing CD's. ;0)

(((hugs))))

Don't worry, E. I never thought that.

Let me know if you want me to burn you a copy of ABBA off my iTunes.

Rebecca Knight said...

Awwww, who can hate ABBA? You know he stole them so he can secretly have ABBA dance parties while you're not around ;).

Kelly said...

Hope things better for you soon!!
Music helps. Also annoying the husband helps. Turn it up!

Melissa Marsh said...

Hahahaha - loved this.

No wonder I woke up feeling crappy!

Just to be clear: ABBA and Journey bad; Doobie Brothers good.

. . . a little Led Zepplin and CSN (and Y is optional) can also be good for the soul.

Da' Man

May the force be with you Ello!

*My copy of Silver Phoenix is finally shipped, should get it in a day or two... hee haa *

And just in case that didn't do the job to the kill.... this one should surely annoy DaMan:

I've been singing this in sleep. Ello don't you know that Bird is the word... Come on everybody knows that Bird is the word... Bird bird bird is a word. :D

Da Man has good taste. I kind of like some of the Abba Best Of songs, particularly Take a Chance on Me, but then there's...

Fernando

Can you hear the drums, Fernando?

I'm about to vomit. You've ruined my day.

Catvibe said...

Mwuhahahahaha! I love your thinking Ellen. :-D

laughingwolf said...

lol... remind me NOT to piss you off, el :O

hope to post some pics of my new pup asap... so far he's slept most of the time :)

It's a shame ABBA split, but we can't go back to a world before Bjorn & Benny's ice cream...

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Fear you? Never! Your brand of wickedness appeals. Perhaps we can rule the world together? Muahahahahahahaaaa!

Big hugs xxx

My husband fears me too. I've got all my Country & Western stuff, including Freddie Fender and Dolly Parton. Plus, all my enka CDs -- and Patty Kim's greatest hits. The trick is knowing where to hide them. And making lots of copies.

Vivian said...

Oh, this is hysterical! Not the missing music, but the torture. Perhaps Da Man will break out into song when he's in public.

Vivian said...

Hope the crisis mode ends soon!

Barrie said...

I do fear you. As does my iPod. :)

Nandini said...

There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Fernando - OMG the poor guy.

I have two older sisters who worshiped ABBA. I can feel his pain. But if he erased your music (NOT cool) sic it to him!! Oh, how about "Nina, pretty ballerina" (just like Cinderella!). Heehee!

Chris Eldin said...

Even though you don't like country, I think we have a lot of musical common ground.

You gotta watch out for those husbands. I had a few CDs my husband couldn't stand, so he (without my knowing it) readily lent them to friends...in Virginia. I'm still waiting to get them back. And then there was the one he "left" in his car when he sold it. Curses!
