I was helping a user out at work the other day with her new laptop, and we got to talking about music.

Long story short, she is a fan of ’80s tunes (and, really, who isn’t?) and I told her I’d shoot her a list of what I owned and if she saw anything on it, let me know.

Before I sent her the email, I glanced over what I did own, and made an addendum to the unsent email:

“And, no, I don’t have any excuse for Air Supply. I can’t even remember why it’s there. I don’t even listen to it, but I know I downloaded it for a reason. Now it sounds like I’m feeling guilty and trying to explain my way out of it.”

Shortly after I sent it, I got her reply:

“As long as I don’t come across Tiffany, Debbie G., or the like, I’ll hold my tongue.”

“Holy hell. Don’t open that .txt document at all, then.” Came my rebuttal, lame as it was.

I looked at my mp3s again, a little closer, after I sent that reply.

I’m in for a beat down.

  • Mykl Gee

    I have the old…. “um, my wife asked me to download that”

  • Snooze

    I’m always amazed at what you’ll confess to. And so… a new user? Who you are sharing tunes with? Are you planning to ‘shoot’ anything else her way? [sorry, I have the maturity level of a 12 year-old boy]

  • Oh please, admit it — you like to do your own “Puttin’ on the Hits” routines to “I Think We’re Alone Now” and “Electric Youth.” ADMIT IT.

    And, uh, I would also like to know the answer to Snooze’s question, thankyouverymuch.

  • I too love my 80’s with extra cheese. I’ve stopped short of downloading any Chicago/Pete Cetera, but one of these days I know I’ll crack.

  • Ace

    And what exactly is wrong with Debbie G.?

  • Mykl Gee

    Oh yea, on your zune playlist we will see that you like show tunes, 80’s girl pop, and Milli Vanilli. 😛

  • If you have to ask, Ace… :wacko:

  • Yeah, so I suck on the replies. 🙁

    Mykl, see, now there’s a great reason to get married. 😆

    Snooze, :lol:. She’s a lawyer here. If I said anything more, I’d probably lose my job. Speaking of which, I should blog about the Harassment class I had to attend. (It was required for EVERYONE, not just me).

    Lesley, you get two kudos for the ‘puttin’ on the hits’ reference. Good job.

    Sparks, I hate Chicago because I hate that I know all the words to their more popular songs and I don’t know why.

    Ace, I know you are joking. 😆

    Mykl, I like soundtracks, not showtunes. 😡

    Mitch, 😆
