… you better get up off-a my block!
As much as I love Prince (what’s not to love), and as much as that’s my favorite line from “New Power Generation,” I’m not loving what’s happening outside my window right now. My neighbors are having a dance party. And that was cool earlier tonight when I could dance while fixing tea and toast to nurse my slightly sick self. But it’s well after midnight now, and I’ve got to work in the morning. So at this point, I really would like all these party people to get up off-a my block!
I’m not sure which neighbor is partying. The music doesn’t seem to be coming from the notorious party house — a house that has been surprisingly quiet so far this season — but whoever it is needs to remember than not all of us are on summer break. I’m usually not a complainer, but I’ve had a long, sickly weekend during which I had hoped to be fabulously productive but have instead spent these two days with a fever and a migraine, getting no grant writing, housework or trip prep done. So I’m cranky and tired and not really wanting to follow along with that annoying “Everybody clap your hands!” song that leads partiers through some modern day hokey-pokey.
Yes, I am this much of a wet blanket. Feh.
And yes, of course, here’s His Purpleness himself:
I love that there’s enough of the movie included in this video to make clear just how much of a cinematic mistake Graffiti Bridge was. I saw that on an only-date with a guy who kind of looked like Prince. The fact that he liked the movie was at least part of the reason there was no second date!
