This week’s song choice is not just an excuse for me to post a picture of myself dressed as Britney Spears.

Okay, maybe it is.

I love Britney! She’s crazy and adorable and crazy and she sings like a chipmunk AND SHE’S CRAZY. How can you not love her? But the truth is, I was never completely comfortable with her singing “Hit me baby, one more time.” Poor little vulnerable kitten! What big meanie music producer made her sing those lyrics?

So, for the song of the week, I’m going with the Fountains of Wayne cover. Don’t tell Britney I said so, but they actually sing way better than she does.

Halloween tip of the day: “Classic Britney” is a really fun costume, especially if you manage to sneak “My Prerogative” onto the party playlist. My husband was a reluctant Kevin Federline, but at least I didn’t make him be fat Kevin.
