Best things about Tuesday night


...are The Carpenter's LP playing "Close to You"
scratchy and tinny and beautiful
I love the sound of a vinyl record
it makes me feel like painting my nails bright pink
and reading a Seventeen magazine
I was born in 1975, but instead of mooning over 1980s music (which I sorta actually do)
I really love 1970s music...

I just love the subtle disco beat...and the excessive use of horns and harmonies...
and of course I love the white strappy sandals on Karen Carpenter on the album cover...

and this hot chocolate made from sugar-free hershey's syrup (wow!),
half and half and whipped cream.
Totally sugar-free (cause sugar don't agree with me very well)
and so yummy and decadent tasting I had to do a glowy haze and close-crop on it in Picasa

...oh, time to flip the record and listen to "Baby It's You"...
sweeeeeeeeeet

Two of my favorite 70s songs:



I love Rita Coolidge...look how hot she was in 1970!
dang...
