…Despite it’s best efforts to poison my conceptual well.

Firstly, if you don’t love konagod, you should. He’s one (OK, two) cool guy(s) who tells it pretty much like t(he)y see(s) it. Combine his candor with his intellect, stir in his sense of humor and his love for cats, and I dare you not to blogroll him, if you haven’t already.

And then there’s Hill Country Gal over at Hill Country, who recently used a little of her Copious Excess Cool to post a clip of Sergio Mendes, which brought back memories of sitting on the rug in my parent’s living room, watching something like The Andy Williams Show and seeing this guy and his band, and thinking, “Wow, this is AT LEAST as cool as Herb Alpert!”

So here’s a little Sergio from over forty years ago, still kicking my ass. And I suggest you get up and dance, it’s only 2:44, and you know you want to!

I knew I was forgetting someone – but hey, I’m blaming Guy-Brain. I’ve had it for years…

Ah! I needed this tonight. Thank you! I think I must add a little Sergio to my iTunes….

Thank God for Austin! And thanks for the overly kind words! 🙂

5. Christina - April 18, 2008

Thank you, Jen. I was about to say…

And, there’s BSR too.

There’s a reason Texas is/was the home of Ann Richards, Lady Bird Johnson and Molly Ivins. Texas is crazy, wonderful, backward, progressive, beautiful, ugly, enthralling, enthralled, and just freaking awesome! Thank you. 😉

And you’re most welcome! 😉
