    A Glimpse of Zuska, age 11-18.
    I did, in fact, clean my bedroom and do some laundry. Only some ... which is better than none (no?).

    I also played 3 games of Yahtzee with the girls, and spent enormous amounts of time raiding both Beloved's (massive) CD collection and iTunes in pursuit of a very "Zuska" playlist for my iPod that is all songs of my childhood(ish).

    I downloaded the following:
    1. Aerosmith - Cryin' and Janie's Got a Gun {Looking at the difference of what "nostalgic Aerosmith" means to me, and what it means to Beloved is one of the few situations in which we feel our age difference (11 years) - for me it's Janie's Got a Gun, and for him, it's Sweet Emotion and Dream On - which I also love, but didn't come to appreciate until later}
    2. Blondie - The Tide is High
    3. Bon Jovi - Shot Through The Heart; I Would Die for You; Living on a Prayer; and Never Say Goodbye
    4. Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
    5. Meatloaf - Two Out of Three Ain't Bad
    6. Men at Work - Down Under and Who Can It Be Now
    7. Motley Crue - Home Sweet Home
    8. The Police - Roxanne; The Invisible Sun; De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da; Don't Stand So Close To Me (which I swear turned me on every time I heard it when I was a teen); King of Pain, and others.
    9. Tone Loc - Funky Cold Medina
    10. Whitesnake - In the Still of the Night
    11. White Lion - When the Children Cry (don't ask)
    This was all added to what I already had, which includes Air Supply, Depeche Mode, the Church, The Smiths, Tears for Fears, Def Leppard, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Erasure, Human League, Supertramp, Sinaed O'Connor, and Neil Diamond.

    After I monopolized the sound waves in the living room from the hours of 4:30 until our 7 p.m. dinner, Beloved has pulled the girls into our room, with his much better speakers, and is showing them movie clips from a Monkees movie, and now he's explaining the composition a song by the The Who (who J. loves, and apparently he plays for her - very loud - every time I leave the house).

    So the girls are getting the 60's, 70's and 80's - all crammed into a single day.

    I believe my next project will be a play list of all the classic rock I enjoyed as a teen - my nostalgia list is stuff that was current to the time that I was listening. We had a thriving "classic rock" station in our corner of Connecticut, though, and it was what we all listened to during our evenings in various clearings in the woods, feeling oh-so-old with fires burning and beer bottles.

    That play list will take longer to create, but will be FREE - because Beloved owns it all.

    **no, seriously, as I was publishing this post, Queen's "We Will Rock You" came blaring from the other room -- I walked in to huge grins on the girls' faces**
