A few weeks ago, I couldn't stop singing the Dif'rent Strokes theme.

Today, I woke up and, while still lying in bed, started singing the Family Ties theme. To P. In an annoying squeaky Ju Ju-esque voice (or the voice this household uses for Ju Ju, which is a sort of aggrieved whine of rage and petulence). And now, as a punishment for annoying my boyfriend at an ungodly hour of the morning (well, 8.45), I CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD! It's almost as bad as " a man is born, he's a man of ease..." Oh, fuck, now that's in my head too. Soon my mind will be full of nothing but theme tunes from early '80s American sitcoms! Help me before I get to The Facts of Life...

Oh, shit. Too late.

Ha! I cannot remember the Family Ties theme! I am immune to your earworm!

And if you phone me up and sing it to me, I WILL KILL YOU.

Nope, still not jogging anything. Maybe I never saw Family Ties? Is this possible?

The Diff'rent Strokes one is JUST ABOUT being held off by Elijah. Don't know if I can hold out for much longer, though....

Of COURSE you saw Family Ties! Michael J Fox as Alex P Keaton! Republican child of hippie parents! Mallory! Jennifer! HOW HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN IT?

I can't remember the song either (though I do remember the show), but Anna can't ring me up and sing it to me! MWAHAHAHAHAAA!

Well, what did you expect, going and telling a sibling not to do something you disliked? Of course she was going to do it...it's what siblings do!

And do you remember it?

Not really, no! It obviously didn't make much of an impression on me, unlike the numerous other TV themes cluttering up my head.

I think that I shall have to NOT READ YOUR POSTS first thing in the morning, as you are an EVIL EARWORM PLANTING person.

If I can screen you out until I get fully caffienated and get appropriate music blaring through my headphones at work, I should be okay.

I'm impressed you know the words to Family Ties. In my head, they're "I guess we've been together, for a thousand years ....soomething soomething something ... what would we do, baby without us, sha la la la."

Also? Sometimes, you wanna go, where ev'rybody knows your name.

Since I can't remember the melody for the Family Ties theme song, the words aren't sticking, thus no earworm. Hah! Take that!

But now I have to hum Ramones tunes to myself in order to fend of Diff'rent Strokes. Again. You evil, evil, woman, you.

Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours to go-o-o-o-o, I wanna be sedated...

That's so funny, because I was thinking of you just today. I was walking through the mall and, out of nowhere, the Full House theme started going through my head. And I was all, "Ohmygod, this is what happened to stellanova with Dif'rent Strokes!!!!"
