Day #5–A song that reminds you of someone

So many options here that it was difficult to narrow down. . .

Here’s to a song that reminds me of. . . queenlizzle!

It’s funny that her last blog entry–which was almost a year ago (cough, cough)–has a list of John Mellencamp songs.

lizze loves JM, JC, or JCM.  . . whatever is was and is.

We usually play him on the jukebox when we get together (and if the crowd is right).  . . This caused us to have a memorable conversation with this guy in a bar in NYC.

For the record, we don't know this dude. . . and I don't even think the dog belonged to this dude. . .

This dude gave us money to play songs in the jukebox.  We played JM.  He walked up to us and said, “Are you girls from Indiana?!?!”

Us:  No.  Illinois.

Dude:  Illinois?  What is Illinois?

queenlizzle:  The Land of Lincoln.

Dude:  LAND OF LINCOLN?!?!  How f****** ghetto is THAT???

God bless Illinois. . . and John Mellencamp. . . and God bless Indiana for making him.



  1. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! thank you for the shout out to jcm, me, the land of lincoln, and our fabulous new york times!!!!

    i too am troubled by my lack of blogging. i will admit that it is partly due to work related issues and a lack of understanding of the hatch act. maybe i need to start all over with one that is more secretive like yours. like, only people i WANT to read it can read it? hrm.

  2. I LOVE John Cougar…. as he will always be to me. When my sister first introduced me to him he WAS John COUGAR….. he’s great!!!
    You guys have good taste! 🙂
