Guilty Pleasures Week: That Perfect Moment

Driving home a little before 5 a.m. (don’t ask). Streets empty, sunroof open, windows down, the breeze sailing through the car. I hear waves. The first few seconds of “Champagne Supernova.” Crank Dave FM, crank my vocal cords. Take the long way home to enjoy seven and a half minutes of Oasis perfection. Zooming down the road, keeping in time with Noel’s guitar and the bass. Air-drumming throughout the chorus, dancing and bouncing in my seat, singing with Liam as loud as I can. Turning left on reds so I don’t lose momentum. The little drummer boy drums and the guitar fades as I slide into my parking space. Perfect timing. Perfect moment.

Liam had a horrible overbite, it seems.

Then I hope you sat up for Letterman last night. Two of my very favorite men, chatting and charming me. No wonder I couldn't sleep ...

GREG: I need to go to this bar with y'all. We got that photo at the show, the one where I kept calling y'all so that you could hear what they were playing.

BRAT: We were on the second row, and Liam was a hoot all night. A helluva lot of fun. And I love watching my cats mutilate toys.

A track listing would be tasty Barista.

BRAT: Can't wait! I noticed the music was a little cooler this week. I have every artist you listed ... but a compilation is always fun to have.

And steamy, Dale.

Left on red?

Yep. Turned left while the traffic light was still red. It was 5 a.m. There were no cars on the road.

That is a great moment. I love it when great songs come on and you feel free to sing along and dance. When you get the little goose bumps because for whatever reason you totally feel the song or it makes you just ever soo happy. I am like that with Coldplay's Clocks- It makes me think of being in love and that wonderful feeling you get...

Good times, lady...
