A to Z 2014 : YOU AND I

(An A to Z 2014 Challenge Entry)

Finally a post that won’t take me the entire day it’s due on, cutting it close to the Midnight mark. This is a post I’ve had semi-drafted up since about Day 3 of the challenge. I was blog hopping back then, exploring random, new blogs I’d never read before, and one individual was posting music videos. One of those videos featured the song her and her boyfriend/fiance/husband/I don’t freaking remember considered their song. I can’t recall what it was, but I offered up what I thought the Ladyfolk would consider our song. It was between two, but I myself consider this one to be said song:

“You and I” by Ingrid Michaelson.

I’ve been trying to avoid playing the song, or even humming it, for weeks now. The Ladyfolk says she didn’t know what her final topics for the challenge would be. When she said that she finally thought she figured out her “Y” post, I just knew intuitively there was the high probability it would be the same as mine. So, she is passed out on the couch and I just placed up my “X” post hours ago, but I think I can get the drop on her.

Oh My Nuts. She woke up, because while I was writing my post I was also attempting to blog hop. I wanted to catch up some and was reading a blog post about Jeff Buckley and the music ended up being a bit too loud. So I went to tuck her in with intentions of finishing up before going to bed. But it was a trap. Her cuddles and back scratches put me to sleep!

Damn you, Jessica and Jeff Buckley (but not really)! I shall have my revenge (yes, really)! Because I just saw the email notification that the Ladyfolk did indeed pick “You and I” as her challenge topic today. I want to peek at what she posted, specifically the subject matter beyond the song, but I’m way back on “P” for her blog… yeah… so none ya’ll can complain. GAH! Stupid cuddles...

Ah, well. You win some, you lose some. At least I still got posted before Noon!

Do you and your significant other have a song you consider yours? If so, which? Are you an Ingrid Michaelson fan?


  1. Damn you, Jessica!? What? LOL. What sort of revenge are we talking here? Sorry, I forgot to warn you about Jeff's music. He tends to start out whispering and then the songs build into a crazy crescendo. And, you know what they say, "If the music's too loud, you're too old." But, I understand. Jeff Buckley has been a huge distraction for me lately too. Thanks for the link, Jak!

    1. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA! All in due time... all in due time...

      Yeah, the sudden build up caught me completely of guard and I panicked trying to adjust my volume, but alas, it was too late. And hey! I could rock it, Lil Miss Sassy Pants! Totally could handle rockin' it! I was just trying to be polite :-)

      I figured I would help spread your obsession! dun Dun DUN!


    I am so impressed that I didn't check your blog at work today. I barely beat you.. my post went up at 11:11 -- yes you read the right. You missed it by 44 minutes.

    You are correct the music did wake me up and I was cranky because of it, heh. Sorry about that. BUt I do love that you were writing your post -- especially THE BEST POST EVER.

    And then you were like, "Babes, I don't think I will be going to bed." And then you laid down. End of story. Kate cuddles win all.

    1. Haha I tried. I knew I burned too much time dinking around with other things. I'm so easily distracted. I was a bit shocked you hadn't checked my blog to see if the post was up, but I figured you were used to my entries being posted closer to the Midnight mark than Noon.

      At least you aren't always grumpy when waking up. It could be a lot worse. I've had to deal with much MUCH worse lol

      Well, the cuddles made it all worthwhile :-)


Oh My Nuts! Leave a message already, would ya?!
