And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket


The Monkey just made me set up an entry for her in my cellphone address book.

The includes a picture of her sticking out her tongue for photo caller ID.

She also made me download Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” for her very own ringtone.

And then she made me play it over and over as she danced around the kitchen and sang along.

So, yeah, a pretty typical visit.

    Weird- that song was stuck in my head, so the title of this post really leapt out at me…

    PS- Congrats on your Scrabulous win!

    Is that your favourite line in the song?

    Is it weird that I don’t remember having a special blanket as a child.

    princess of the universe: Thanks. I actually went to university on a Scrabulous scholarship.

    airam: Favourite line? I am pretty sure that I don’t have one of those.

    I hope the Monkey calls you the next time you’re on a date. I’m not sure what I would do if my date’s phone played FERGIE. Might be our first and last….but you can be damn sure I’d blog about it.

    The Monkey sounds too cute… but I have to tell you, I abhor that song. I want to gouge my ears out every time it comes on the radio. Maybe you like it or maybe you just love the Monkey, either way, you’re a better man than I. (Mostly because you’re a man and I’m not.)

    It’s a wonder you don’t try to hurt yourself whenever the monkey makes you listen to that crap. I’m kind of proud :)

    Oh God…

    You’ve just inspired me to change my ringback tone.

    Note to self: Find a “grown up” song to play back to callers instead of “Big Girls Don’t Cry” which is listened to repeatedly by little girls.

    Thanks. I’m embarrassed now!

    I think you’re Fergilicious, PDW.

  9. 9 Michelle and the City

    i’m embarrassed to admit that i kind of like that song…

  10. 10 Peter

    mindy: Ha! That is something she’d do on purpose. Though my default ringtone is Xzibit saying, “Your phone’s ringing. Answer your phone. It is pissing me off.”

    epic & mim: I have quite a bit of patience for the little chicks in my life. The rest of the world annoys me pretty frequently though.

    amber: If it makes you feel any better, she is 10 going on 30.

    123valerie: You think I make them boys go loco?

    michelle: It has been stuck in my head since yesterday evening. I fear it may be growing on me.

  11. 11 Cait

    I looooooooooove that song. ACN and I need to hang out and dance.

  12. 12 Peter

    cait: I should warn you, she dances ALL THE TIME. Bring comfy shoes. The song, however, was her second choice. She wanted some Sean Kingston song that I couldn’t find. That lead to her giving me quite a look.

    That song makes me want to claw my eyeballs out but, oddly enough, my dad is apparently a big Fergie fan. He and I ran an errand this weekend and the damn CD was in his car and he sang along and I don’t think my life will ever be the same.

    clink: That’s funny! When I was a kid, I found a Dire Straits cassette in my grandmother’s car. Apparently that’s where I learned to want my money for nothing and my chicks for free.

    oh the monkey- I love how you give in to her every whim

  16. 16 Peter

    lisa: Perhaps I should add “used to being bossed around by women” to one of my e-mails to my future wife?

    um, simply precious.
