last night, i was at a birthday party for my boyfriend's cousin. most of the people there were adults, but there were a few kids. one of the kids was playing with this sesame street toy. you pushed a button, and a character would pop out, singing its signature song.

oscar the grouch was on there, and he was singing "i love trash." i hadn't heard that song since i was a little kid.

i thought that was absolutely hilarious.

i'm surprised i didn't scare his entire extended family, as hard as i laughed when i heard that toy.


(and now, some lyrics, just because.)

oh i love trash
anything dirty or dingy or dusty
anything ragged or rotten or rusty
yes i love trash

i have here a sneaker that's tattered and worn
it's all full of holes and the laces are torn
a gift from my mother the day i was born
i love it because it's trash

oh i love trash
anything dirty or dingy or dusty
anything ragged or rotten or rusty
yes i love trash


i have here some newspaper thirteen months old
i wrapped fish inside it
it's smelly and cold
but i wouldn't trade it for a big pot of gold
i love it because it's trash

oh i love trash
anything dirty or dingy or dusty
anything ragged or rotten or rusty
yes i love trash

i've a clock that won't work
and an old telephone
a broken umbrella
a rusty trombone
and i am delighted to call them my own
i love them because they're trash
oh i love trash
anything dirty or dingy or dusty
anything ragged or rotten or rusty
yes i love
i love
i love trash
