Up next? Mom jeans

Tonight, while driving in circles around Russian Hill looking for a parking space, Bette Midler's perfect-for-fifth-grade-choral-concerts 'From a Distance' came on the radio. And you know what, people? I cried. Like a baby.

I'm not proud.

  1. mmm yes.. the bette midler middle school shoe-in (sp? is that even a word?) i remember ALL too well. best part? we performed our version with singing AND sign language. it was something to remember, ames.

    don't be ashamed though.. it's a pretty sappy, sad song.

  3. yes. *you* don't have to be ashamed, for i am ashamed for you.

    "from a distance, THERE-AIRRRR IS HARM-MONYYYYY and it ECHOES THRU THE LA-AH-AH-ANDDDD..."

    my big sister and i used to belt it out big time.

    and then it gets extremely creepy and she keeps repeating "God is watching us" and i start feeling guilty and strange.

  4. yeah, i sort of change the creepy chanting to "lala watching us lala watching us" -- because WHO finds that comforting?

    "Its a dirty job,
    but someone's gotta do it..."

    "Its a dirty job,
    but someone's gotta do it..."

  7. I love that song! When it's played on the radio (which is not to often) I sing it like nobody is watching.

    And I'm proud to admit it!

    Hugs and Mocha,
