I’m guilty of still listening to this album.  
But that’s not the problem.  The problem is the album cover. What the HECK is going on with the men?! And how did this not bother me in 1995… or catch my attention in the 17 years since I’ve been listening to this album? Look at their menacing pimp expressions!
Incase you were wondering, my favorite tracks are Lucky Love and Never Gonna Say I’m Sorry.  
A history of Ace of Base: The Swedish quad includes a guy, his best friend and his best friend’s 2 sisters.  The girls left the band in 2009 to pursue their solo careers. The remaining guys recruited new females and said they’d change the name of the band.  They did: Ace.of.Base.  Ace.of.Base, not be confused with Ace of Base, released an album in 2010.  The name “Ace of Base” comes from being the masters of their studio (aces), which was the basement (base) of a car-repair shop.

Palms

I spent yesterday afternoon reading books about reading palms.  Super fascinating and startlingly accurate.  How can those little lines be so telling?

I thought I’d be able to read those little lines even closer if I could study them on paper! Plus my wrist was tired of bending backwards and my fingers were tired from splaying and stretching to get sharper palm lines.

So I painted my hand with gooey juicy red poster paint that smelled like straight kindergarten and smooshed my hands onto construction paper to get handprints to read instead! Well, it didn’t work.  And my hands still smell like an elementary school hallway.  And Garcia still drinks from the toilet.
