Wordful Wednesday for May 22, 2013

Well hello there! Is everyone still singing along with The Temptations this morning? Don’t worry: I have another song that will chase “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” out of your head, and that, appropriately enough, works very nicely with today’s word.

This nice warm weather is putting a spring in my step, you guys, (ha – seasonal humour) and I’ve woken up with more energy these past couple of mornings then I’ve had in a while. Mind you, the fact that Doctor Who is over for the season might also have a little something to do with that, as I haven’t been staying up past my bedtime to watch a certain someone on The Space Network anymore …

… but that’s not the point. No; the point, lovely and well rested readers of mine, is that I’m in the mood to sing along – loudly – with my iPod these days. Today’s word is:Β avidity: enthusiasm,Β livelinessΒ 

In other words …Β 

I don’t know if it’s the warmer temperatures or just the general twitterpated-ness of springtime, but I am feeling a great avidity for life in general these days, and for this song in particular:

I really ought to be friends with these guys, don’t you think?

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a brand new Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of! Can’t wait to see you then!

love amb

    • Thank you!! I love you too πŸ™‚

      They’re a band called “Walk the Moon”. I hadn’t heard of them before, but this song gets played on the Songza station that I listen to at work, and now I’m hooked!

  1. What a fun dance party and it’s not even Friday!!!! And they totally dance like Ellen. Great video clip choice. How did you find these guys? And what do you suppose that guy’s shirt said that it had to be bleeped? Wish I was there with them for sure.

    Your word-of-the-day is perfect for you and for WBS. Glad you’re having genuine springtime weather. Long time in coming. I second Mimi in saying that you bring avidity to the blogosphere each and every day πŸ™‚

    • They DO dance like Ellen! You called it Liz πŸ™‚ I heard the song on Songza and looked it up – it was just an awesome co-incidence that the music video perfectly matched my word for today. Love it when that happens!

      I want to know what’s on the bleeped shirt too! The first guy, who I believe is the band’s manager, has ninja care bears under a rainbow on his shirt. I NEED THAT SHIRT! Ninja care bears!! I can’t even.

      Off to visit foodforfun now … πŸ˜‰

      • ninja care bears under a rainbow? fantastic! am sure you could google such a shirt and make it yours.

        nothing new at foodforfun yet, but I appreciate your eagerness to get your hands on the recipe for those tasty muffins πŸ˜‰ it’ll be waiting for you when you log in tomorrow–promise.

        Think I’ll go find some Walk the Moon tunes to listen to. Might even pony up for a download or three πŸ™‚

      • I’m going to, totally. Lunch break entertainment, here I come! πŸ™‚

        I AM eager for those muffins! One of my favourite things to bake. Now I have something to look forward to tomorrow! Hooray!

        Go for it! I will probably be doing the same when I get home tonight, so if you come across any that are really good, do let me know! πŸ™‚

  2. I totally want to be friends with these guys too! I mean, c’mon, a dance party in a spring time parking lot. Sign me up! You’ll be there too, right?! πŸ™‚

    So, unrelated, but not really, because this is Amb and Bon talking…today, I finished Austenland! Cute book…I will be curious to hear what you think! It’s a fast read, and a great spring-fling kind of story.

    And, I too, am feeling a great avidity for spring!! Bring it on! πŸ˜€
    xo

    • Of course I will, and of course we will have a most excellent time! I’m looking forward to it already πŸ™‚

      You’re right, there is no such thing as an unrelated Bon and Amb tangent! I am totally in the mood for a spring-fling kind of story, as you can tell from today’s word, and I am totally looking forward to Austenland.

      Bring on the spring is right! xo πŸ˜€

      • In fact, we probably don’t need to coordinate with those guys, though they seem really fun, but I bet with us, and the other peeps here, we could start our own dance party! And yay…I love knowing I have a free pass to tangentland! Ha….see what I did there!? xo

    • Why thank you! I aim to impress πŸ˜‰

      Thought of you today – I got to break the news to my friend Matt who hadn’t realized that Community had been renewed for next season! His reaction was priceless. It was a special moment for both of us.

I'd love to hear what you think!
