i'm a barbie girl in a barbie world........maybe not

i'm on a mission. my young charge this evening has been singing the same two lines from "barbie girl", by aqua, for the past hour. the problem? she's not singing the right words. it's probably just me, but i can't help but correct people when they're mangling a tune. this five year old was amazed when i told her the song is actually a few years older than she is......thankfully, she's too young to ask if they had cds way back in the old days- 7 or 8 years ago. i told her mom i'd lend her the cd, but of course that wasn't enough for me- i had to put a stop to this child's lyrical ignorance.

but the one site i found the video on won't cooperate with this computer. (this was particularly frustrating, since i haven't seen the video myself in years.)


then again, i suppose if that's the only real frustration i have on a monday, i'm doing pretty good.

(and of course, now "barbie girl"- the correct lyrics, mind you- is running through my head. uh, great.........)
