Monday Morning Dance Party

Kerri at TutuRunner PRd at her half marathon in May, wearing a beautiful green and yellow tutu that has since made it's way to Oregon to it's permanent home with this OREGON DUCK family.

The tutu arrived with a note requesting that I might like to put up a Lady Gaga song one of these Mondays for her Grandma Betty.
Kerri's Grandma passed away the same weekend as the race and she lost in her words "the most honest, no-frills, loving, giving,
level-headed, big-hearted person that i know" 

Well...she sounds just wonderful and I wondered how in the world this woman got caught up in the Gaga hype enough to actually like her??
p.s. I am NOT a Lady Gaga fan.

I agreed to this request, though, based on Betty's lovely qualities and out of respect to her. When I cautiously asked Kerri which Lady Gaga song would make the best choice for this morning, she responded with THIS STORY...that cleared up a lot, made me love Betty even more, and so here you go...
if you like this b!tch (you've got to go read Kerri's story above!! Right now!) , then listen to the following Gaga song. The only one I really know is Paparazzi...and that's only 'cause it's on our Kidz Bop 17 CD. I picked Poker Face because I could actually let Mai watch most of the video when she was helping me pick the song.



If you lean more towards the kind of music Betty and I like...tune in here... Let's rock everybody, let's rock!

I have Poker Face on my running shuffle. I can't listen to it without thinking of Muffin Top (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llFDn2iyWOU). Which I've decided is a good thing!

I'd never really seen Lady Gaga perform until SNL this weekend. She's totally nuts, but really talented - and a pretty good comedian to boot. As we were watching, I said, "I wish that show Behind the Music was still on the air - I bet hers would be great."

Great tutu! I made it home, through Portland. Ack! Heading down to Eugene to get my car this morning. I'm never flying standby again.

I can't get the video..my workplace seems to frown upon Lady GAGA, but I am looking forward to reading the story.

While I think the lady is way out there I really do like quite a few of her songs, but then I like Elvis too.

Aimee said...

The tutu is awesome!
Lady Gaga is so interesting to me! Some of her songs I really like, but others...ugh!

LOVE the tutu ... HATE the song. Just sayin'! (Were they out of George Strait at the music store)

We loathe Gaga in our house. Ryan has been known to walk out of public establishments when this song is playing. haha
