“You’re Laughing At Me” is from the 1937 movie “On The Avenue.” I know we’ve heard another song or two from this movie. I really need to check it out some day. “Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Irving Berlin Songbook” was released in 1958 and it was nominated for Best Album at the very first Grammy Awards. Ella won for Best Female Vocal Performance that year.
Isn’t technology great? With internet dating it’s nearly impossible to find the right combination of cruel emoticons to mock someone who shares tender feelings. In fact, what I mostly get when I express interest is silence. I don’t take it personally because there are lots of reasons people don’t respond. I usually choose to believe guys who don’t answer me would actually love to respond if only they weren’t being held captive by aliens. Whether those aliens are hideous slime creatures from the depths of the Bog World or triple breasted nymphets from Eroticon 6 is probably a moot point. If he can’t reach his communicator to respond to my hailing frequency then we can’t have a meaningful dialogue. And if we can’t have a conversation it’s impossible to “engage!” Hmm… you don’t think all this nerd-speak could have anything to do with lack of success in matters of the heart do you? Nah! Nerd chicks are hawt!
