I am too old mature to be a fangirl. 

Sometime last week, I believe it was Tuesday, I was walking like a little old lady in need of a new hip.  I think it had something to do with carrying a child most of the day, but I could be wrong.  So in pain was I that I shirked my remaining household chores and told The Husband I was going to lay down.  I don’t like doing that, because usually it’s pointless.  I am too easily found.  I try to do what the girls do and close my eyes so they can’t see me, but for some reason it’s no more effective for me than it is them.

While I was resting my poor, aching, 32-year-old bones, I was flipping channels.  I flew past a channel but had to return because the gentleman on the screen was speaking and I couldn’t understand a word he said — and I was pretty sure it wasn’t a Spanish channel that I’d gone by.  So I found myself watching PBS of all things, attempting to understand the Irish brogues of Damian McGinty, George Donaldson and — *sigh* — Ryan Kelly.  They are 3 of the 5 members of Celtic Thunder and they were being interviewed by one of the announcers from the local PBS affiliate in between clips of their concert.

I am too old mature happily married to be a fangirl.

To me, their sound is so masculine and strong, and sexy as anything.  (Sorry, Kearsie, I just couldn’t do it!)  I don’t know what it is, but that music just… Just… Well, makes The Husband not mind as much that I want to buy the CD, the DVD and spend $60 (each) to go see them in November.  Yes, there are very attractive men singing the music (especially — *sigh* — Ryan Kelly… who is about the same age as The Husband, is a numbers guy, and has beautiful — albeit not near as beautiful as The Husband’s — blue eyes), but considering sometimes I play their YouTube videos while I’m online and doing other things, I know I don’t have to see them for it to get to me.

Enough fangirl ramblings.

In other news, someone found this blog by searching “your mom got more head than body.”  I searched that myself and found that this was the third option.  Hope I was able to help… I think.
