Eddie Vedder

Raise your hand if you remember who he is. I had a rude awakening the other day. I was wandering through the mall, looking for some shoes when I decided I was craving an iced latte. And you know those CDs on the counters at Starbucks? Well, I saw one with Eddie Vedder on it. (Lead singer of Pearl Jam. Don't worry- we can 'don't ask don't tell if you didn't remember.) And here's where I'm going to feel really old here. Back in my day, (yes, before cell phones and laptop computers-- sometime in the early 90's) he was a GOD to most girls in college, at least to me and the chicks in my little group. And his picture on the CD here in 2007 was a little surprising. He looked old. Wah! Eddie Vedder looked old! And I was so taken aback by it that I asked the fetus cashier guy if that really was Eddie Vedder and didn't he look old??!!! And he stared at me blankly and said, "Sorry, I don't know who that is."

Of course I felt like and old lady-slash-idiot and of course I had to call my husband right away and relay the story, and he just said, "Yes. You're old. Now put down your crochet and walk away."

Yes, I'm crocheting a blanket at the moment.

Maybe he is going for the Bruce Springsteen rugged look. Though I think there was a reason he kept his bangs long, he was fugly.

OMG! How could he not know who Eddie Vedder is? He must have just been born yesterday and living under a rock. Geeze, I do feel old (and I'm quite a bit older than you). I'm going to dig out my Oil of Olay now.....

Phew! You were beginning to worry me with your lack of posts girlie!
Ha ha Eddie Vedder..kind of like looking at Bret Micheals on Rock of Love.
We now must recognize that Corbin Blue and the Jonas Brothers are the new rock gods..
