"Hey-oh, listen what I say-oh."

Apparently my body decided that it only needed around 3 and half hours of sleep last night, so I figured I'd get some blogging in.

I know everyone is DYING to know how I've been since the emo onslaught, so I'm happy to report that things are back to normal. Maybe even better than normal. In fact, I woke up the next morning like nothing had even happened. I'm pretty resilient like that.

Now, I know I said that I was back to normal, but I think I can safely say that I haven't been "normal" for a single day in my life. I was pretty much doomed from the start.

Don't tell my mom, but I'm kind of glad this happened.

I have no idea why, but for the past 24 hours or so, any time something remotely exciting happens I immediately say Hey-Oh! in my head. Thank goodness it's in my head. I don't get it, though. I've never said Hey-Oh! in my life and I sure as heck don't ever intend on it. 

Ooh, a new text message! (Hey-Oh!)
Ooh, a Twitter direct message! (Hey-Oh!)
Oh my gosh, I love this song! (Hey-Oh!)
Homemade mac and cheese for dinner! (Hey-Oh!)

Guys, I don't want to be that douchey guy who says Hey-Oh! after everything. I'm afraid that the more often I think it the more likely I am to end up actually saying it. I know, I know, just quit thinking it. It's super involuntary, though. Prayers would be much appreciated. I don't want something like this to end up happening today.

Those circles are supposed to be heads.

Day 16 – A song that you used to love but now hate:

Our local Top 40 station is the only station that comes in on our work radio that everyone can agree on. Unfortunately, they have this knack for playing the same handful of songs over and over and over and over... I'm sure most Top 40 stations are like that, but it just seems like ours is especially bad. One can only take so much Rihanna or Ke$ha in one day. A lot of good songs have been ruined for me because of this.

I don't think that I ever particularly loved this song, but good lord do I despise it now.


  1. Loved the Gwen and Stacey pic :) And also loooooove the song on your title :) Good to know that you're better than normal, always stay so!!!

  2. My mom really wanted me to be named Nicole and after my dad named my brother, it was agreed that she could pick my name. He shot her down and I'm not sure who picked Lauren but I'm also happier with the second choice.
    Once I started saying "holla" ironically but after a while I was saying it so much that it just became and obnoxious thing I said so I had to stop.

  3. @Apfel Thanks. :)

    @Lauren I did the same thing with saying "Oh em gee." I thought I was being ironic and hilarious, but it was just ridiculous. :)

  4. Glad you're feeling better!

    Maybe instead of Hey-Oh, you could change it to "Thundercats, Oh!"

  5. Ditto with Animal being played out. I featured this song on the music blog in August ( and it's STILL all over the radio. Yuck.

    This reminds me of when we used to say the pledge of allegiance in school, and a few times at the end I would loudly say, "Amen." Just because of habit and because it fit! -_-


  6. @thoughts I would feel like such a poser for yelling something from a show I've never watched... :/

    @Lor I totally get the urge to say "Amen." after the Pledge of Allegiance! I've never said it out loud, though. Hooray for being awkward, love. :)

  7. I say "HI-OH!" when I properly insult someone :), but I always turn into a guy when I say it - I don't know why that happens

  8. I now feel old....
