This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Hair So New from Clairol.
It’s been hot and humid here all week, but next week promises to be cooler and rainy. Fall is in the air!
On Tuesday, I ran a test to see whether WordPress would pass just the excerpt rather than the whole text of the post to Facebook. The answer was a resounding "no." Oh, well, back to the drawing board.
Aside from that, nothing much is happening, at least not in Real Life™. Lots went on here, though, and here’s a summary.
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: "Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise"
- Monday: Wham!, “Everything She Wants”
- Tuesday: Spandau Ballet, “True”
- Wednesday: Pet Shop Boys, “West End Girls”
- Thursday: Culture Club, “Time (Clock of the Heart)”
- Friday: Tears for Fears, “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”
- Saturday: Simple Minds, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”
It was a freebie day, but given it was Labor Day, I focused on songs about working.
Another week of four Harry Potter questions, these based on the book Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, and three from Melanie for those who refuse to answer the Harry Potter questions.
In my latest battle, Cliff Richard’s "Congratulations" beat Paul Simon’s and Reba McEntire’s.
We visited radio station 3XY in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and checked out their Top Ten from 1973. It was quite different from what we were listening to here.
Took yet another one-liner from Lamebook, this one poking fun at the diminutive Tom Cruise.
Took the word "fresh" and talked about freshness as a marketing idea. Included was a clip from the movie Barbarians At The Gate that many of you found hilarious, which is why I included it.
The Doobie Brothers were this week’s featured artists, specifically from their "Michael McDonald" era.
The prompt was "collar" and I talked about our cats who wore collars, all of which were my buddies. I didn’t include Kismet, also known as Kittyface, because I wasn’t sure whether we had her wear a flea collar (we had some issues with fleas at one time, and she being a mostly-white cat picked them up easier than the others). She was another of my buddies.
Tomorrow is National Coloring Day and our Monday’s Music Moves Me prompt is "song titles/lyrics about art in general – get creative or use your high school colors to build your theme around." I’ll probably go with the high school colors thing. There’s another Battle of the Bands coming on Tuesday, so be sure and stop by and vote on it. Everything else will be as usual. I have a writing project for Mary that I need to focus on for something other than the blog, so there won’t be a lot of deviation from normal.
