First up: I got another haircut. Yes I did. But! But! This haircut, it was a good haircut. Well, it wasn’t a bad haircut, anyway. Terry’s reaction: “It looks exactly the same as it did before.” Money well spent, then, although the hairdresser was gratifyingly horrified by the remnants of The Mullet . Also,  both she and the girl who washed my hair said it was a lovely colour, and even although I know they say that to everyone, I still thought, “Ha! Take THAT, ginger haterz! Take that and party!”

Second up: Here is The Friday Five, with a little explanation first:

Ear worms are those annoying little songs that get stuck in your head. Sometimes they are the last song you hear on the radio before you go into the office, sometimes they just randomly pop in.

1. What is a common ear worm that you get?

I don’t think I have a common one (i.e. one that I get again and again), but the one I have right now, and have had ALL FREAKING WEEK, and also THE WEEK BEFORE THAT TOO is “Daddy’s Gone” by Glasvegas. Seriously, this song is in my head AT ALL TIMES right now and there is nothing I can do to shake it. Nothing. And this Friday Five isn’t really helping much, to be honest.

2. How long do they last?

This one? About two weeks and counting. GOD.

3. What do you do to get rid of them?

Well, I try to listen to something else, obviously. But then I get into the car and Terry puts on the Ear Worm, and that’s that.

4. What is the worse ear worm you’ve ever had?

Terry likes Meatloaf. ‘Nuff said.

5. Do you get some guilty pleasure in passing the ear worm along?

No, but Terry does. In fact, if Terry knows I have an Ear Worm, he will try to encourage it. Or he will try to replace it with Meatloaf. Actually, I really hope he doesn’t read this…

As always, feel free to answer on your own blog, or in the comments. And if you don’t want to do the whole thing, at least tell me what your current Ear Worm is, so I can finally get rid of “Daddy’s Gone”…

    1. Oh God, I read this and as soon as I saw the words "Dirty Dancing", I got "I've Had the Time of My Life" stuck in my head. Am going to have to listed to Daddy's Gone again to get rid…

    Push pineapple shake a tree


    Push pineapple grind coffee

    C'mon people, sing it with me!

    1. Haha, sometimes theme tunes can be the worst! There's this really crappy game show called 'Going For Gold' comes on right after Neighbours every lunchtime, and sometimes I want to cut my ears off to avoid getting its theme stuck in my head…

  2. It's a world of laughter

    A world of tears

    It's a world of hopes

    And a world of fears

    There's so much that we share

    That it's time we're aware

    It's a small world after all

    After Disneyland, I practically needed medication to get rid of that blasted song. Gah.

    1. Aargh, It's a Small World! I seriously have no idea how the Disney staff manage to cope with working on that ride – it must be sheer hell having to hear it all day, every day!

  3. 1. What is a common ear worm that you get?

    Apart from Daddy's gone. I would have to say, the first few lines of: Toby Keith – Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue

    It was written not long after 9/11 so he is a little angry…

    2. How long do they last?

    Months for me, I still can't stop myself singing Angels and that has been more than a decade!

    3. What do you do to get rid of them?

    I have to wait until my brain cells in question die.

    4. What is the worse ear worm you’ve ever had?

    None, all my song choices are fantastic, and that includes MeatLoaf, Heaven can wait. lol at the montage of photos in this video.

    5. Do you get some guilty pleasure in passing the ear worm along?

    YES MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA, ha… ha… lol 😛

  4. I always find the Smurf theme tune fairly insidious, and just to help with this, it was my mobile ring tune form years. I always loved it when I caught my boss humming it!

  5. I once got 'Coconut' by Harry Nilsson stuck in my head for days. It was around the time that they were using it to advertise Coca Cola. By the end of the first week, I was practically gibbering.
