Prince ... and Nancy Pelosi.

His name is Prince.  And he is funky!I bought a Prince cd.

Yes, I fell victim to the advertising reach of the Superbowl Halftime show and wanted to hear “Let’s Go Crazy” as loudly and as often as possible.  (Not to mention “1999” and “When Doves Cry.”)  He reminds me of when I was like 10 years old, flailing around at middle school dances.  And he's good for my attempts to feel better by distracting myself from the sicky feelings via blasting this music as I drive into work.

However, the folks in Westport may not agree with my musical choice, as I received several odd looks from people as I sat at a stop light, rocking happily along to the opening, jittery strains of “Let’s Go Crazy”.  I think I had the music a little too loud.  A woman stared at me in her rearview mirror as I sang my little heart out.  So I waved to her.  And, to her credit, she waved back, albeit confusedly. 

Feeling slightly better today, thanks to going to bed at 9:30 and sleeping like a baby.  Granted, I was tortured by the cats all night long, as they felt the need to splay themselves all over our knees, making it difficult to get comfy, but I slept nonetheless.  Sausage makes it her mission to lie on that crook of your knees that makes sleep extremely unlikely.  But she also sleeps almost flat on her face, with her ears smooshed out so she looks like a little, gray Yoda.  Adorable pain in the arse, she is.  I couldn't resist snapping a picture.

Sleeping Sausage.

In other news, there is an exclusive, in-depth interview about stem cell research conducted by the founder of dLife, Howard Steinberg, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.  Check it out here.  My office will be hand-delivering the feedback to Washington, DC, so if you have something to say about this important issue, make sure you follow the "Send Your Email Now" link on the page. 

Lastly, take a spin by Chronic Babe for this week's edition of Grand Rounds.  The D'Sphere is representing strongly on this edition.  Great job hosting, Jenni!  And Generation D is updated, just in time for Valentine's Day. 

I'm back to listening to my cd.  His name is Prince, and he is funky!

Cute Yoda cat!

You mean "The Artist Formerly Known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince."

Funny moment in the show for me was as I watched... "Ya know... with the purple stage lights and the rain falling, he ought to do 'Purple Rain'... it would fit perfectly." And the rest is history.


I have a Prince CD also. It's one of my gulity pleasures. I don't want to like him, but I do.

And, your cat, very Yoda like she is.

I think the artist with the most songs on my Ipod is "the Purple one!" My wife and I saw him in concert a couple of years ago and it was awesome!

I would 4 U and Baby I'm a Star are GREAT workout songs. IMO

Kerri, there is NOTHING about Prince that is a guilty pleasure. That man is a rock hero - truly one of the funkiest people ever to strut on this earth. I saw him live a few years ago and was totally blown away. So I say, rock out in your car - or wherever - and if anyone looks at you funny, run them over with your Little Red Corvette.

Little Red Corvette, baby! Woo!

I love Prince....but not his little body.

I'm not afraid to admit that Prince is my main man.

Did anyone watch the Pelosi video? What did you think?

My second year of college, it was all the rage to have the Greatest Hits Collection. Can't remember if that was during the TAFKA period or not.

I feel old.

Westport. Ah, Westport. Westport isn't really a fan of anything not strictly white and white-bread. Of all the time I spent working in Fairfield County, Westport (at Barnes and Noble) was the worst place. Norwalk wasn't so bad - at 93 Wall Street - In The Mood. At least the fish and chips place across the street and the Jamaican place there were pretty good.


Happy Valentine's Day!! Not a great day for diabetic chocaholics---guess I'll dial up the insulin on my pump! : )

The Nancy Pelosi interview was good. I think she is right on the money saying the American people are ahead of Washington when it comes to stem cell research. I agree with her that science is God's gift and this enables all the exciting research and outcomes we are seeing. Look at the Christopher Reeve Foundation's advances with spinal cord injuries. There is some interesting research going on at Wake Forest from Anthony Atala, MD who has isolated stem cells from amniotic fluid. This is a new source and possibly less controversial than embryonic cells. I was shocked when Pelosi said 14 countries are ahead of the US in serving chronic illness. That is pathetic. Anyhow, we all need to write to our congressmen urging legislation for funding of stem cell research. Thanks for this information as it will nudge me to write to mine!


Oh, btw, I have lousy web video viewing options, so no go on the video.


Prince rocked the halftime show! I bet he sold more than one CD that next week...

Rock on Kerri! I'm off to read Generation D now...
