OK parents; stop denying it — you’re in love with this catchy Carly Rae Jepsen song, right? If you haven’t heard “Call Me Maybe” by now, go grab your kid’s iPod — I’m pretty sure your son or daughter has the tune downloaded. Yes, it’s for tweens, but adults enjoy it too (I can’t be the only one).

Why am I talking about this song? I’ll tell you why! Not only do I have this unbelievably addictive ditty stuck in my head, but it seems to be infusing all parts of life. Or, am I just an obsessed kid-at-heart and as the song says, “…this is crazy?”

You know how some people go all-out for their business card design (like these from Zazzle)? Well, look at what Jezebel is reporting. Folks are actually giving these things out!:

Call Me Crazy Card

See? It’s not just me! I doubt you would be taken very seriously if you gave a card like this to someone, but hey, who knows — maybe you’d get a call back?!

The whole craze has me thinking. I’m going to take the “Call Me” phenomenon even further. Yes, you guessed it, let’s spin the hysteria into decor inspiration (oh, it’s possible). Look at what I discovered on Etsy:

What say you? Are you a fan of the “Call Me Maybe” hullabaloo? Or, are you letting this whole thing go straight to voice-mail?

    When I first heard this song, I must admit it had me tapping my feet. I heard my daughter listening to the song while helping me with the dishes and I asked her to send the song via Bluetooth to my phone. I now have it as her ringtone when she calls me to pick her up from color guard practice.

    The material on the phone would keep me awake at night. But another calmer material would be nice.
