Do you guys remember that Savage Garden song back in the day about "Chica Cherry Cola?" I am not only seriously craving Cherry Coke, but I've had the song stuck in my head today. I actually went through a phase where I LOVED Savage Garden. Now, I'm just sort of puzzled. I mean, "I want to live like animals, careless and freeeeeeee!" or "Mama never loved her much, daddy never kept in touch, that's why she shied away from human affection" or "I'll love you more with every breath, truly, madly, deeply, do!" ---could we get any more melodramatic?

Seriously, really thinking about the lyrics of some of those songs is cracking me up tonight. But I've gotta admit, they're catchy songs...I still dance in my car when they come on the radio.

Anyway, I don't know what brought on the Savage Garden tangent...probably being home alone while hubby works late AGAIN. And he will tomorrow as well, which means missing Kev's homecoming. Suck. And suck even more that I have to drive there by myself. I just keep reminding myself that it's good for all these unexpected house expenses that I know will be coming.

Speaking of, our inspection is scheduled for Monday. Woop! And even better, the inspection guy isn't likely to screw us over, because I discovered today that it's my YMCA basketball coach from elementary school! Small world!

How could I end the post without the chica-cherry-cola video?!


  1. I used to love Savage Garden! And you are right, now the lyrics are hilarious, but I'm still singing along when they come on.

  2. A couple things...Savage Garden was the first CD that I ever bought, I still know all the words to Chica Cherry Cola, and I cannot even explain how good Cherry Coke sounds right now. MMMMM...
