Music Monday! How Bizarre....

Sitting in the living room yesterday morning we heard loud thumping upstairs.

It sounded like a large animal jumped down off of something and the ran full speed across the room. Several times.

All I could do was giggle a little, knowing it was our small, barely 18 pound mutt of a cat doing the things crazy cats do: run across the room for no apparent reason at high speeds.

The strange thing is, there is no furniture left upstairs. So what did she jump off of? There are boxes, but most are low to the ground so the big thump had me stumped. The only tall box is the one our large screen tv came in. The tv is gone now, but for some reason we still have the box, and it is over 3ft tall. I doubted she would jump up that high, plus the sound came from the other side of the room. Was she on the windowsill?

These sounds continued for about 5 minutes. Back and forth, thump, thump, then the clomp clomp down the stairs. I just thought is was funny, and even strange in a way.

So hubby said, 'How bizarre'. And then there it was, this one hit wonder, stuck in both our heads for the rest of the day.

How Bizarre by OMC.

Our kids thought we were nuts, having never heard the song. Yes, they thought we were bizarre, singing along with the New Zealand rap song.

Add to that the bizarre living conditions we now find ourselves in:

We look around and see boxes everywhere, shelves now empty of the nick nacks displayed in the kitchen, the mantel now bare of the photos and collectibles there just a week ago, a tiny tv and small old sofa we all squeeze on to watch out shows. All in our face, bizarre.

So, the lyrics stick with us too:
How bizarre 
How bizarre, how bizarre 

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby) 
It's making me crazy (It's making me crazy) 
Everytime I look around 
Everytime I look around (Everytime I look around) 
Everytime I look around 
It's in my face

  1. That is bizarre... life changes like that, and of course hearing strange noises from above you! Usually in our case it means the wind is howling :)

  2. It's amazing how cats always manage to make the MOST noise possible, even when there's *nothing* to make noise with!

    I love the lyrics. :)
