What's Worse Than a Rick Roll?


Finding THIS in your basement, thereby confirming stories that you thought were only told in jest. Yes, my baby's daddy was (is?) a Rick Astley fan! I guess he really did perform "Never Gonna Give You Up" at his school talent show like he said. In his defense, it was in grade school (or so he claims). Knowing that he only listens to metal now, mainly death metal at that, makes it even funnier. The only thing more priceless than this is seeing his face when he reads my blog and finds that I told the whole Interstate about it. I can't wait!


Now, what's better than a Rick Roll? Just about anything! And this, too: I also found this sweet '70s bathing suit for a little girl. Never used, still has original tags. It says size 4T, but it looks awfully small, even for Violet. We'll see.


And Violet found two mismatched clip-on earrings that somehow complement her blue shirt. (See that look? It's called Blue Steel.)



And even niftier still, I found an old apron, also unused with the tags still on. Seen below, modeled by my chair. I imagine some Donna Reed-type would've sported this on Halloween. (You know, while she was locked away in the kitchen making drinks and dinner her husband and all his friends that he invited over at last minute, and taking care of the kids while she did it.)



I could have a whole separate blog devoted to the weird finds of our enormous basement. It is that huge and cluttered. Some even speculate that the Mothman spends summers there, but I haven't seen him yet. Here are some other posts featuring basement treasures. Enjoy!

Cool! I loved Rick Astly too and probably would have loved your hubby's performance back in the day. lol. That vintage suit just might be worth something!

I love that apron! I have one that is a Retro cherries pattern and I actually DO wear it. I've even done pictures of myself for my blog. LOL.

Hot Belly Mama- I know! I wish it was on video so I (and therefore the Internet, hahaha) could enjoy it, too. :(

ETW- I was kidding about the Donna Reed thing. I am totally going to sport that bad boy! I think it's cute as heck.

Mary Evelyn- There is much to find down there. I'll keep you posted!

But you and "baby's daddy" will still be "Together Forever" right? Ha ha.
Wow, you've got some cool stuff in your basement - come check out mine: let's see, we have litterboxes - filled to capacity, an ancient Christmas tree, some never used wallpaper, a really messy toolbox courtesy of my "handyman". Your basement is like Aladdin's Cave next to my Pandora's Box.

Oooh Mothman left you some cool treats.

Violet is incredibly beautiful. She has amazing eyes.

I don't think I could ever publicize my spouse's musical choices. You could at least argue that your "baby daddy's" Rick Astley purchase was influenced by some misguided young peers. Some things are just better left unblogged...

I read this yesterday, then heard THE Rick Astley song....I admit, I sang and bobbed along with the chorus of 'Never gonna give you up'. I think that is one song that everyone loves, but not many will admit.

Your daughter has beautiful eyes. Quite the soul in that one.

Of course, you realize that I didn't know that Jeremy performed that at the North Point talent show. I'm telling everyone.

HOLY JUMPED UP JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ON A CRACKER!IF THE D+D STUFF WASNT WEIRD ENOUGH,NOW THIS? P.S. JEREMY IS ABOUT THE SAME AGE AS ME, AND I WAS ABOUT 14 WHEN PEOPLE STARTED COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET AND ADMITTING TO LISTENIN TO RICK ASTLEY,BUT EVEN THEY WERE BUTCH ENOUGH NOT TO PERFORM IT LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!! I COULD ONLY SUGGEST RITUAL SUICIDE TO APPEASE THE SOULS OF HIS ANCESTORS- WHO I AM SURE ARE AT UNREST!!!!!!!!!
