Kings of Leon are Stalking Me

Ever have a song follow you? It can be a little strange.

That happened to me yesterday.

I put on some music in the morning and the Kings of Leon song Use Somebody was playing.

I said to myself, "Self, I like that song. Let's go to iTunes and download it." So I went to iTunes and listened to it there. Then I downloaded it. It played as I downloaded it.

That makes it 3 times I had heard it in about 10 minutes.

A couple of hours later, I hopped into the car to head to the gym and what song that was playing? Yup, Use Somebody by Kings of Leon.

I arrived at the gym. It was playing there.

I got home, flipped on an Internet radio station and it was the second song I heard.

At 230, I left for Volleyball practice. The song played on two different radio stations during my 25 minute drive.

Sorta sick of it by this point.

I am regretting the iTunes purchase.

On Friday, I baked a pumpkin cake...had some extra pumpkin, so I baked pumpkin cookies.

They both were fantastalicious!

Except that I ate so much of each that I am now orange and becoming very round.

My wife has invited me to a date on Thursday.

She would like us to go see the 12:01am showing of Where the Wild Things Are.

I have not gone to a 12:01 showing since early college.

I am not a night person.

Neither is she.

It should be interesting.

"On the night Max wore his wolf suit he made mischief of one kind and another."

I am looking forward to seeing the movie.

Maybe you and Claire can make out in the back of the theater.

I like this kind of mischief.

I hear that song everywhere, and now at work, we're playing a cd from some female artist and as I was toiling away, shelving books one afternoon, I thought, "Hey, that song sounds familiar."

Then I realized it was this female artist doing a cover version of it. It's everywhere!

So is Pink. One day, every time I got in the car, one of her songs was on the radio. I think she has a crush on me. Only way I can explain it.

I like your wife. :-)

But you have to know which your favorite Monster is!

By the way, I had the same thing with Kings of Leon happen to me (though I didn't buy the song). I heard them on Pandora, liked them, and then was suddenly thoroughly overrun by them everywhere I turned and fell out of like.

Ah, fickleness.
