Wednesday's Song of the Week

I love Peter Bjorn and John. I enjoy them so much that if I had triplets right now I'd seriously consider naming them Peter, Bjorn, and John because I like the ring of it that much. It's sort of like Peter Paul and Mary minus the whole Puff the Magic Dragon thing, which is kind of creepy, frankly, I don't care how much you loved that imaginary dragon when you were five. I'm also not sure why the idea of triplets popped into my head right now. It's probably because I had another dream that I was pregnant last night, which seems to be happening in alarming frequency now that the wedding is coming up. The worst part is in my dreams, I never realize I'm pregnant until I'm walking down the aisle or getting ready to put on my wedding dress and all of a sudden I look down and I've got this huge basketball-sized stomach and I'm all, "holy shit I'm pregnant." And everyone else is like "how the hell did THAT happen?" as if they don't know about the whole P in V thing, and I kind of just shrug because now is not the time for biology class. And then I panic because first of all, my dress does NOT work with pregnant belly, and two, I have been drinking a lot over the past nine months and now this baby is definitely going to have some problems and it's all my fault.

ANYWAY. A lot of people nodded their heads in approval when "Young Folks" hit the popular music scene a couple of years ago, but Peter Bjorn and John have been releasing a relatively steady stream of albums that proves that they are, in fact, fecking awesome. And perhaps best of all? They seem like damn funny guys.



HOLY SHIT, YA'LL IT'S A TWO-FER. LET'S GO CRAZY, SHALL WE?

I'VE BEEN HAVING PREGNANT DREAMS TOO! Sometimes it's me but a few weeks ago, I had two dreams about a week apart about two different friends both being seven months pregnant.

Also, lots of dreams about forgetting xyz - you name it - and not realizing until like an hour before the wedding.

The other night I dreamed that I forgot to write my vows and I didn't think of it until the day of the wedding.

For some reason, it was the wedding day and Andreas and I were standing in a grocery store and all of a sudden I was like, "Crap! I forgot to write my vows?"

And he was all like, "WTF!? You forgot to write your vows?"

And I was like, "Did you do it?"

And he was like, "Umm, yeah!!"

And then the rest of the dream was about trying to find a pen and paper so I could write them.

I'm getting married in November and I have pregnancy dreams all the time! I actually even had a scare last month, but turns out my doctor just sucks and didn't share that sometimes ladies on my new pill don't have periods. It totally ruined a good weekend of drinking in Chicago (there was actually a sign above a bar that had the warning about consuming alcohol while pregnant... I took that as a sign I was knocked up for sure). Three tests and a couple frantic calls to the doc later and we know we're safe!

I have nothing to add, vis a vis being preggo, but PB&J put on one hell of a live show. Saw them at the 9:30 Club in DC earlier this year. Fantastic.
