Get cracking!

A lot less Mondayish, more like a TGIF! - that's I. To get myself cracking at work today I picked something upbeat. The beginning scene on this video reminds me of that extremely conservative music screening committee back in boarding college. We were supposed to serve church and community after graduation and they wanted to make sure we behaved chastely, like nuns if possible. Some of us loved to deliberately perform something that breaks all the rules of performance on the holy auditorium stage to defy authority. Fast forward --- it's Monday 2009. No more strict screening committees. It's freedom galore! And It's Raining Men!

Jori and Diane are hosting Musical Monday. Head over to their sites to play along.

What a crack up, I think the whole being in front of the committee is supposed to be spoof of the movie flash dance put that with a spice girl (Geri is a spice girl isn't she I think) and Raining men... wow what a funny video!

Carleen said...

Fun song to start the morning with! I think it must be illegal to be so skinny, though! :)

Hazel said...

Hi Karen, I too

Hi Lorielle, amazingly flat tummy isn't it? :)

Hi Amy, I'm glad you did

Hi Anya, it must be exciting to live The Netherlands, lol!

Hi Joy, some girls are just so lucky with their amazingly flat tummy

Hi Amanda, yeah she is

Hi Carleen, if it's super model skinny, the skeletal type, I think it's no longer right :)
