We’ve been listening to a lot of Jean Michel Jarre here lately, mostly because A) I downloaded some on Zune and B) I control the music when I cook.
So, since we’ve been listening to music that is 30 years old and I will be 30 in just two short weeks I thought I’d timeline Jean Michel Jarre’s music broadly vs my life. At the age of 30, I’d hope that I am thought to be as fresh and alive as his music is 30 years on.
And if not, it was fun playing with my tablet. You can click to view it larger.
I like Saturdays. Saturday is my first day at home in the week when I don’t have to get up by a certain time to be at my desk and logged in to a VPN. It is the first day in the week when the girls will look at me and know I don’t have to get dressed with any urgency unless we want to go somewhere bright and early to get a whole days worth of day in.
In fact, I do consider Saturday to be the first day of the week – its a good day.
This morning, for example, we were listening to Gigi D’Agostina – L’amour Toujours, Monkey, Nuzzle and Scratch were taking it in turns to dance with me and just as the lyrics hit “and I will fly with you”, Monkey (who had both her hands in my one hand) crouched down slightly. So I began to pull her up and MBW carried her on, lifting her up into the air to fly.
She looked slightly stunned by this but laughed and went doolally with adrenaline for a few minutes.
I like Saturdays.
