The KKK Took My Baby Away

We vastly exceeded expectations and timelines during this first pressure-cooker week of integration testing. Go team.

So, a couple two-three hours early, I came home in the three-digit heat, took off my shoes, made myself a lime slushy, and put on the Ramones.

The only thing I knew about the Ramones yesterday was that my favorite Lone Gunman worshipped them, and that Joey was dead. But then yesterday I saw two different people in different parts of town wearing different Ramones t-shirts. So I thought, "Hey, sign!"

Only by such emphemera does my life branch out at all. It seems like a good idea to do as I'm prompted.

So now I've got a Ramones greatest hits compilation. You just never know what's going to appeal to you at 50-something that probably should have appealed to you a whole lot earlier in life if you'd, you know, had a life.

At 25, I totally would have appreciated "I'm just gonna have to tell 'em that I've got no cerebellum...LOBOTOMY! LOBOTOMY! LOBOTOMY!"

Oh well, I'm appreciating it now.

ba-ba-buh-ba, buh-ba-ba-buh-ba, I wanna be sedated

*has fun*

One of my students claimed her father was the drummer for the Ramones. I'm not sure which in succession, but I met him at her graduation and he acted/looked the part.
Oh! And foes that mean that you didn't actually HAVE to work 11-12 hour days? Or you did and that's why you got out? Or you guys are just a lot damn smarter than they thought and you skated through easily.

It's Ramones all the way down, today!

We skated. We are smarter than they thought. Mind you, it was some tough skating. And there are four more weeks of it ahead. But...WEEKEND.
