Actual Train of Thought

March 15, 2009 @ 12:53 pm | Filed under: Uncategorized

I had just read these lines at Toddled Dredge, where Veronica so often makes me grin:

During my hiatus, I read Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight. Apparently it is a requirement of being a thirty-something housewife (it’s on the list right between “make ironic references to eighties pop” and “own yoga pants”).

And I thought:

Hey, that’s three strikes for me—I haven’t read Twilight, I don’t own yoga pants, and when I make references to eighties pop I am nearly always completely sincere. (Oh Adam Ant, how I miss you.) (Sincerely.) Huh, guess I’m not a typical thirty-something housewife. OH WAIT I’M NOT A THIRTY-SOMETHING HOUSEWIFE AT ALL NOW THAT I AM FORTY.

Sometimes I forget.

  1. Does that make 4 strikes? I am with you except for the 80’s music. If I never see spandex and hairspray on a musician again it will be too soon!LOL!

  2. Guess that is why Twilight doesn’t appeal to me either.

  3. Hee hee.
    I’ve mostly managed to avoid Twilight-mania, mainly because I’m just REALLY TIRED of vampires. New monster, please!

  4. Adam Ant?!? Me too. And I haven’t read Twilight either.


  5. Are the yoga pants actually for doing yoga? Or is everyone else, like me, trying to pass them off as dressier-than-jeans pants?

  6. Another non-Twilight reading forty-something mama here too.

    I *used* to have yoga pants… in my thirties… LOL

    I’m more of a Hall & Oats fan myself… (good heavens don’t tell anyone!)


  7. Oh how I love you ladies !
    Thanks for putting a smile on my face,
    I am feeling the same but at least I am smiling .Thank you non Twilight droolers .
    Have a very blessed day.

  8. My d is reading Twilight–here’s a photo Yoga pants scare me. I was out of the country or in grad school for most of the 80s. I just remember Wham! [shudder]….

  9. “make ironic references to eighties pop”…
    Maybe it should be “make references to iconic eighties pop.”
