Jingle Mandy and M'nah! M'nah!

I really reminded myself of Jingle Charly today. I had made these hair wraps, but they weren't wrapped into my hair. They're just attached to a hair elastic. One of them has my own tetragramaton MRND, another has a fairy charm I had from earrings I made in college, and another has three heart charms. The one with MRND also has a triple split at the end with charms of the sun, the moon, and a star. I pull my hair up using the elastic and it looks like they're actual hair wraps. The point is this: those charms tinkle and jingle when I walk or swing my head around, and all day I was reminded of jaka_talbot's hair wraps that Ken and I put in that had the little jingly bits in them. It always made me think of fairies hovering and chattering about her. :)

This one is for history_grrl. She's the one who introduced me to the wonderful "M'nah M'nah" song by Animal. I've been watching this bizarre new sitcom on NBC, Committed, and I'm hooked. We're introduced to the character Marni in the middle of one of her many first dates, and it ellipses in "...and then I go, 'M'nah! M'nah!'" The guy gives her a strange look, and then trying to save the date, she adds quickly, "or I can do the 'Do-do-do-do-do' part if you want to do the 'M'nah M'nah' part!" Shaun, do you remember the first time you told me about this song? Wasn't it just like that, except for the date part? XD

And then, we find that this is also her ringtone. Then, the other day, I was watching a commercial. Don't ask me why, or what it was for, but this woman is sitting there on a date and the guy is talking, and she is bored, and he asks her opinion or something, and she waits a beat... and I somehow knew to say it with her... "M'nah! M'nah!" And the guy does the "Do-do-do-do-do" part and then the whole restaurant gets into it! I laughed my ass off.
