Can I have a show of hands for everyone who has said "not Constantinople" this week after hearing some report on the pope. It's gotten so bad that I was dreaming about it last night and was actually thinking in my dream that I absolutely HAD to post about it because whatever my dream was about was hyyyysterical (it involved Chocolate cake, a wacky malaprop, and the cable channel 31) and I repeated what I wanted to post again and again and again in several dreams (including when I made new chocolate icing for a new chocolate cake) and when I sat up this morning, I swear I felt the "joke" slip out of my head. I honestly sat in bed and said "Wow. After all that effort, that blog post just fell out of my head."
So there. I think of you all even when I sleep.
Nonetheless, the singing continues.....
Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night
Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you've a date in Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul
Even old New York
Was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that waaaaaaaaaaaaay
