Baby'd Friday Random Ten

So a baby shower isn't just drinking hot water when you're pregant?  My bad.

There was a baby shower for one of the girls at work today.  A quite well-catered one too.  Me and the guy I work with* were invited to stop by.  Not too surprisingly there weren't a lot of guys there.  One reason this isn't all that suprising is that it's a majority female workplace.  Which is interesting to think about.  Not many men worked in high-female environments fifty years ago, except in movie musicals.

1. The Cramps - The Crusher
2. R.E.M. - Kahoutek
3. Laurie Anderson - Big Science
4. Elvis Costello & the Attractions - Strict Time
5. Beck - Blue Moon
6. The Clash - Remote Control
7. Zapolski Quartet - Allegretto Pastorale (Nielsen)
8. Fiery Furnaces - Take Me Round Again
9. Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Powderfinger
10. Lambert, Hendricks & Ross - Bijou

You're right about the ratio and in my experience too, both fifty years ago and more recently, high female work environments were almost always managed by men. They never counted as co-workers.

Baby showers have always been high giggle count with lots of oohing and ahhing. Was this one the same? Did you enjoy some good food?

Great FR10 I see here and almost all familiar. Opening with the Cramps and REM was a good start.

This one was fairly restrained in terms of giggling. Probably the fact that it was a work affair had something to do with it.

It's a funny Cramps song. There may have been some who didn't get the joke.
