Triple-dog dare you

Laurie Berkner is Savvy's new favorite person, and while I stayed with them last week I got to see why. She sings these kids songs that are actually kind of silly and catchy and don't make you want to bludgeon yourself to death with a highchair.

Savannah put in the DVD and invited me to sing and dance along with her. Jenny told me I'd been given a high honor, because no one else was allowed to dance along lest they be killed and eaten by an irate Savannah.

Anyway, here's the dare: Watch this video twice and then TRY to not have that song in your head. I spent the entire ULA conference (and a couple of days after) randomly singing, "Hey, Victor . . . "

This was more fun when Savvy was around, because she would always pipe right up with, "Hey, Freddy . . . " and then we would finish the chorus together and the clouds would part and rainbows would arc over us and people in the streets stopped to watch the preciousness of it all.

Sometimes I must question my devotion to you. Because now I have a song about spaghetti and collard greens on my iPod. And I don't like spaghetti or collard greens.

That was evil and unfair, I need help getting this song out of my head now....maybe I'll listen to love shack a couple of times to help...

My favourite children's song is still the one song by Phoebe Buffay (for all you librarians out there, it's season 2 episode 12):

Oh the cow in the meadow goes "moo"
Oh the cow in the meadow goes "moo"
Then the farmer hits him on the head and grinds him up
And that's how we get hamburgers.
Noooowwwww chickens!

Wow. When I opened your website Savannah was next to me and said 'It's Bictor Bito!'

Yup. Hooked. DesTot keeps asking for it "One more time!"

Had to turn on other music after listening to that...

I mean, it's cute and everything, but are the purple pleather pants really necessary?

DO NOT QUESTION THE PURPLE PANTS.

<ahem> I mean, clearly they are necessary.

I'm sorry. If you watch it, it will stick in your head. Forever. But I'm pretty sure that it has no redeeming value.
