It was a very traditional Doris Day mistaken identity sex farce, but as much as I like my personal friend Miss MacLaine, I didn't connect with the movie and turned it off.
And THEN, I tried going to bed but I tossed, I turned, I tossed some more, eventually falling asleep after what seemed like hours.
Before I went to bed I noticed that my alarm clock was missing. I have a feeling a certain pussycat thought it was a toy and hid it on me, I'm sure I'll find it under the stove one day. So I set the alarm on my cell phone for my regular time. My iPod alarm is set for the same time every day, for a random shuffle of music to help me wake up.
Lo! Cell Phone alarms do not have Snooze features!
For about an hour I snoozed while my studio apartment was filled with songs. I had listened to, among other things:
Blondie - "Last Contact in Red Square"
Bette Midler - "Stay With Me Baby"
Dionne Warwick - "Do You Know The Way To San Jose"
R.E.M. - "What's The Frequency Kenneth"
Evita Soundtrack - "Waltz With Eva & Che"
To what song did I eventually fully wake up? I wish I could claim synchronicity and say Miss Day's "Sentimental Journey" or even a MacLaine song from Sweet Charity, but I can't. It was the relatively mundane, yet pretty, "Daniel" by Sir Elton John.
Anyway, here's a great scene from Sweet Charity, with MacLaine, Chita Rivera, and Paula Kelly, which I will take as the theme for my day at work in the Yelling Factory. There's GOT to be something better than this.
