This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by your Coca-Cola bottlers, makers of Sprite. Now, more than ever, it’s Sprite!
I know they still make 7up, but you don’t hear about it much anymore, except for around this time of year. I always liked 7up, even better than Sprite, which goes to show you that marketing is everything.
All you Catholics out there know that today, the 3rd Sunday of Advent, is Gaudete Sunday, one of the two Sundays of the year that the vestment color is rose, i.e. pink. To celebrate, I’m wearing a pink shirt. Here’s the summary.
The word was “boys,” so I dreagged out “Cowboys To Girls,” the big 1968 crossover hit by The Intruders. Come to think of it, I could have used it today…
Week 2 of the Xmas Music Xtravaganza went well, and I used a couple of your suggestions in this week’s list. Thanks, and if there’s one you’d like to hear, let me know.
Bob James was this week’s featured artist.
Had a quote about alcohol being a solution, and Laurie made a good point: Alcohol is a compound as well.
The prompt was “chill,” so I wrote about chill-out music, which can be just about anything that you listen to when you want to relax. I shared an example of what I heard when I chose the “Chill” channel on AccuRadio, and it received mixed to lukewarm reviews. I thought it was interesting, anyway.
We visited Seattle and station KUBE to find out their Top 10 on December 14, 1984.
Our prompt was “hairy,” which means both hirsute and horrible. I included George Carlin’s “Hair” poem, which I was surprised to learn hadn’t been heard by everyone, and Bill tried to outdo George, and almost succeeded.
Still plenty of time to vote in this week’s Battle, “‘Please Come Home For Christmas’: Jon Bon Jovi vs. Kelly Clarkson.” I’m happy to see that a few non-participants have voted. Remember, you don’t have to do a Battle to vote in one.
I might have a surprise or two this week, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
- All About Life
- Mary B
- Uncle Jack Connelly (whose birthday is this week, I think…)
- Mary M
- John Howell
- Anyone I missed
- Everyone who left a “like”
And that’s it for this edition of The Week That Was. See you in the funny papers!
