Alas, I have a board meeting tonight (and all day tomorrow – boo!) so there will be no Friday Night Dance Party in our house unless Mike decides to knock out a solo performance for Lola.
Instead, I’ll play a video from an artist who’s been a regular on our playlist this week. An oldie but a goodie, Mazzy Star, is a great band for a particular mood. I can’t really pinpoint what that mood is but it’s a little romantic, introspective, and thoughtful all rolled into one.
I also enjoy listening to Mazzy Star’s music because it always takes me back to a specific memory from college. One night, I walked in on one of my roommates hooking up with her Italian boyfriend who was in town visiting. Here they were having this romantic moment and we (me and my “friend”)came busting in after a late night at the bars. I went straight over to the stereo and instantly changed the cd to something livelier without any clue as to what was going on. Believe it or not, that wasn’t the most embarrassing thing to happen that night but we’ll save that story for another post. Fortunately, Daniela has forgiven me for my faux pas but it did make for a funny memory.
