Monday Pick Me Up

Not much sleep for me last night - I was tag teamed by my daughters. The youngest one was up for a couple of hours, and then right when she finally fell asleep, the older woke up crying from a nightmare.

Oh well. :/

So this Monday morning finds me bleary and a bit dazed, in desperate need of a pick me up. I picked a bad time to give up coffee. ;p But hey, that is what Metallica is for. Especially their song "Whiskey in the Jar."

And if you didn't know (like me) "Whiskey in the Jar" is a famous Irish traditional song about a highwayman, who is betrayed by his wife or lover. Those Irish know how to rock!

"Now some men like a fishin', but some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear, to hear the cannonball a-roarin'
But me, I like sleepin', `specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain, yeah
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ha, ya
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o
Whiskey in the jar-o
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, hey
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ya"
