The Violent Femmes Had it Right

A great way to start your morning—better by far than getting your daily intake of 8 vitamins and minerals from the whole-grain goodness of General Mills cereals (part of a complete breakfast)—is standing on a street corner in the snow and cold wind and watching bus after bus drive right by, the driver waving at you to “take the next bus”. Especially when it then results in your arrival in class 15 minutes late, meaning that I missed part of the continuing background (a.k.a. “Learning What I Missed as a 1L”) lesson on future interests, which I really wanted to attend. On the bright side, it means that I ended up on the same bus as Ash (as Certain Member shall henceforth be known in this blog), so we got to ride in together.

I don't get the VM reference.

"Gone Daddy Gone?"

I think Ash is the main character from Pokemon. Does your Ash have a Pikachu wandering with him?

Ash? Ala Evil Dead?

Right in one, Eep. Paca, I'm afraid Pokemon was pretty much a non-phenomenon for me, since I was too old to get into it in that "College Freshman trying to be quirky" way, and I don't have children who might have sucked me into it that way.

And you, oh anonymous commenter, have the wrong Violent Femmes song. Check the lyrics to "Waiting for the Bus": "We all get mad, we all get late".

I was the anonymous commenter. I forgot to sign my name.

Not a VM song I'm familiar with. But then, I think I'm only familiar with four or so songs.

I'm so lacking in hip that sometimes I'm afraid my legs will fall off.
