I need to clean stuff, anyway. But I was idly cruising blogs and found this very intriguing meme I'd like to try.
The girl whose blog it was on also attached YouTube videos to go with the songs when possible. I think I will give it a try. So, Day 1 is a song from my childhood. Well, there are many to choose from, but I will have to go with this Raffi song.
In fact, I may be fabricating this memory entirely, but I feel like I went to one of his concerts when I was 4. Can you verify, Mom?
Ahh, Raffi. Mom just sent me a box of cassette tapes, many of them Raffi tapes. Why yes, I DO own a tape player. And we have video tapes, too. Apparently I just can't let go of the 80s/early 90s. I've been playing the "Wee Sing Bible Songs" while Ruby goes down for naps. It's pretty old-timey sounding because it warbles a bit, probably because the tape in it is ancient. But it brings back the memories, that's for sure. At the library today I looked for books on tape. There aren't any. Lots of books on CD, but not a single cassette to be found! I suddenly felt very old. (By the way, the other day Allen--in all seriousness--referred to 30 as hitting middle age. Aghhh!)
