preparing for something smart. really.

I have a sure-to-be-genius post trying to formulate in my head about women and marriage and feminism and Revolutionary Road and motherhood and sisterhood and Rachel Getting Married, but I think it might have to wait until spring break (14 school days but who's counting?) even though it would have been perfect for International Women's Day.

So here is Sunday's offering, because "Love Bites" came on the radio this afternoon and I wistfully remembered watching Def Leppard on
American Bandstand when I was in 9th grade then calling my friend Patti to emote over these guys. I had to go find this on YouTube, and watching it still makes me seriously wiggly; I specifically remember sitting two feet from the TV screen and swooning over the slender young Joe. Yes it's 9 minutes long - there are two songs and the Dick Clark interviewing those adorable youthful British accents. It was like a tiny time machine back to my giddy girlish junior high days. I hope you enjoy. [Feminism what?]

(Hey, did you catch that one of the labels for this post is "hysteria"?
Get it?? I'm fricking hilarious)
