Sake, iTunes, Talking Jesus, and Why My Head Hurts

My head hurts because I drank too much sake last night. The thing about sake is that (A) Imp has no "off" button and (2.) it sneaks up on ya.
So i'm sitting in my living room with Our Lord and Savior, Talking Jesus. We'd grabbed dinner out and on the way back he's all "Hey, didn't you have some sake? We could exchange iTunes stuff and drink sake and hang out, and it would be awesome" and I'm all "You'll probably want to load up your fantabulous collection of 80s hair bands, ew, and for that I will need more sake."
Which was not fair because Jesus is (K.) not really all that old, actually and (42.) an 80s punk legend. So his taste in music runs toward Cowboy Mouth and Psychedelic Furs and Joe Strummer and whatnot.
Ask me if I love the Mescaleros. Go on, ask. Heh.
So we go back to my place, and we get a little bit sake'd up, and we're playing Dueling iTunes laptops. He's on my loveseat with Big Sluggo Pug. I'm in my dad's old recliner with Max, my spoiled small pug, and Elphaba, my spoiled black pug puppy, a Halloween present from said deity. She is snuggly, but she likes to lie on the laptop. Imp+ sleeping puglets+laptop+sake = poor musical judgement.
I remember at one point suggesting that we drunk-dial Satan to ask his opinion on the latest Cure and REM offerings. (Jesus bought 'em, I am cheap and will pirate later.) TJ's all "Nah, you know he's watching Abbie on NCIS and jerking off, don't bother the man, what's wrong, baby, don't you trust me?"
I should have known then something was going to be terribly wrong in the morning.
So this morning I get up and stumble out of bed wearing a green blanket and nothing else. Because hi, it's November. A girl needs a blanket. I put the dogs out, shoot some Goody powders chased with Alka-Seltzer and Emergen-C, and sit down to see what kind of damage I have done to my iTunes account.
Jesus does this shit on purpose, y'all. I have known this man for most of my life and I should be well aware of the dangers of drunken iTuning, but noooooo. Hi, my name is Imp, and i'm a tard with wildly eclectic musical taste.
My iTunes email thanked me for my purchases. Which consisted of the following:
- Morris Day & The Time, "Jungle Love" AND "The Bird"
- ASIA, "Only Time Will Tell"
- Boris Kovac, "Tango Apocalypso"
- Britney Spears, "My Only Wish This Year"
- The Waitresses, "Christmas Wrapping"
- Rob Thomas, "Little Wonders"
- Heaven 17, "Let Me Go"
- Meat Beat Manifesto, "Helter Skelter '97"
and i'm sure the rest of the receipts will be following soon enough. I vaguely remember wondering why I couldn't get the Some Kind Of Wonderful soundtrack on iTunes. Or the Pretty In Pink soundtrack. And then realizing that really, i should have called it a night way before I got to John Hughes movies. Or Britney.
And that, best beloved, is why I have yet to update the front page. My head hurts. It might be a hangover, but it's more likely musical shame.
