Thank Gawd it’s Friday!

Of course, these words ring just a little bit hollow, coming as they do from a Man of Leisure, but they are a most effective way of warning the Unsuspecting Reader that the Friday Random Ten is sure to follow.

Yes, indeedy: It’s time for that weekly compilation of Randomized Musical Miscellany as coughed up by the iPod d’Elisson.

We’ve marked a few Major Events this past week. The Mistress of Sarcasm, I am happy to report, has scored a new gig, one that is a perfect fit with her skills, her personality, and her Life Experience - she’s now a recruiter for her very own Alma Mater, the Savannah College of Art and Design. She’ll be traveling throughout the Southeast, visiting high schools and giving folks the skinny on the SCAD experience.

The other major event? As of yesterday, we have lived in this latest incarnation of Chez Elisson for eleven years. That’s a long time, especially considering that this is the seventh house we have owned. We can thank the Great Corporate Salt Mine for all that moving around...

...and now it’s time to move again, this time Back to the Topic at Hand. What’s on the box this week?

    Green hocker croakin’
    In the Pygmy Twylyte

    Crankin’ an’ a-coke’n
    In the Winchell’s Donut midnite

    Out of his deep on a four-day run
    Hurtin’ for sleep in the Quaalude moonlight

    Green hocker in a Greyhound locker
    Smokin’ in the Pygmy Twylyte

    Joined the bus on the 33rd seat
    By the doo-doo room with the reek replete

    Crystal eye, crystal eye
    Got a crystal kidney & he’s afraid to die
    In the Pygmy Twylyte
    Downer midnite
    Pygmy Twylyte
    Downer midnite
    Pygmy Twylyte
    Downer midnite
    Pygmy Twylyte
    Downer midnite
