This was the first Rufus Wainwright song we ever heard.  It was amazing.  This album was amazing.  The “oh no oh no oh no” part at the end is the first thing we ever heard Guinevere sing when she was a teeny tiny mimic in the backseat of our car singing along to that bit.  I am a sucker for the sensitive boy stuff and Rufus always has that in spades.  Someday I will spend some more time and make a version of this song that sparkles and shines.  I’d also love to cover cigarettes & chocolate milk because that one is so funny.

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
