I'm not going to mention Valentines Day

Oh bollocks, I just did.

Well, anyway. Today is important for so many other reasons. My neighbour's daughter is X years old today (yes, X, I can't actually remember and am too lazy to go back and rewrite a sentence I've already started). The TRS CAPAs, which which yours truly is nominated, are announced. It's the first anniversary of Candy's death.

Anyway. That's miserable, so I'm going to post a little quiz. Yeah, I've done it before, but since it took me five whole minutes to find an entry I posted a year ago, I reckon Blogger has given up on archiving by date so I doubt anyone'll find it.

Here's the game. You put your iPod on shuffle (or in my case, the songs my new PC managed to extract from my old one before the connection gave up and died) and they magically give you the answers to the following questions!

It's like being 15 again. Except when I was 15 my computer didn't even have speakers...


1. How does the world see you? All Saints: All Hooked Up
Am I?

2. Will I have a happy life? Buddy Holly--True Love Ways
Er, I'm reasonably sure I never uploaded Buddy Holly...but i take this as a yes?

3. What do my friends think of me? Jennifer Lopez--Ain't It Funny.
Okay, would like to point out that this is the video which I have--and that's because it has a VERY hot guy in it. Seriously.

4. Do people secretly lust after me? Maroon 5--This Love
Also a video. But actually a Buffy fan video about Spuffy. So...er.

5. How can I make myself happy? Maroon 5--This Love
Um. The song this time. I think this is broken...

6. What should I do with my life? Johnny Rivers--Tracks Of My Tears
I don't even know this song. WTF is going on?

7. Will I ever have children? Craig Armstrong: Glasgow Love Theme
From the Love Actually soundtrack. Um. Well, there are usually rosy-cheeked youngsters in Richard Curtis films, right?

8. What is some good advice for me? Girls Aloud: Biology
"The geek at your feet says you're neat and your heart beats closer..." of course.

9. How will I be remembered? Elvis Costello--Oliver's Army
Uh.

10. What’s my signature dancing song? Alicia Keys--Never Felt This Way
Not...really...a dancing song.

11. What’s my current theme song? Al Green--Let's Stay Together
Who the hell has been programming this thing?

12. What do others think is my current theme song? Abba--Angel Eyes
This one almost makes sense. Or might, if it had any actual relevance to me.

13. What shall they play at my funeral? Eve Cassidy--Ain't No Sunshine
Yes! Yes! SUCCESS!

14. What type of men do I like? Angie Hart--Blue
Better get stocking up on woad, then.

15. How’s my love life? Fleetwood Mac--Tell Me Lies
...Yeah.

Well, that was a diverting waste of time. Methinks possibly someone else has been downloading music on here. "I need it for the band." You're gonna play Al Green songs?

Anyway. Have some cat pictures:

Sugar: non temeris messor. "Fear Not The Reaper."



Spike brooding that he's whiter, softer and fluffier than that silly cold stuff outside.

  2. Aww, pretty kitlets!!

    Here's my answers to the song questions:

    1. How does the world see you? Mozart's Requiem. Well, that's cheerful. Apparently I'm the life of parties.
    2. Will I have a happy life? Marooned, by Pink Floyd. One of the saddest instrumentals I've ever heard. This... isn't going well...
    3. What do my friends think of me? Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day. Yeah, nice.
    4. Do people secretly lust after me? Time Bomb, Godsmack. Er... the first line goes, I am in a living hell, makes me wonder if I'm alive. So I'm guessing that's a no?
    5. How can I make myself happy? More Godsmack--this time it's Keep Away. Geez, I'm getting depressed!
    6. What should I do with my life? Breaking Benjamin, So Cold.
    I'm really frightened to go on at this point...
    7. Will I ever have children? Cold Hard Bitch by Jet. Um, since I've already got kids, does this describe my parenting style?
    8. What is some good advice for me? A Great Day For Freedom, Pink Floyd. Damn. Do I have ANYTHING not-depressing on here?
    9. How will I be remembered? High Hopes, Pink Floyd. A song about division, disappointment, and pain. Lovely.
    10. What’s my signature dancing song? Godsmack yet again--Awake. Hmm. Moshing, yes. Headbanging? Definitely. But dancing...?
    11. What’s my current theme song? I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues by Elton John (oh Christ)
    12. What do others think is my current theme song? Gorillaz, Feel Good Inc. Okay, only took 12 tries to get a non-depressing one! Only now it's insane. LMAO!
    13. What shall they play at my funeral? Mozart's Requiem again. Well, at least it's appropriate!
    14. What type of men do I like? Goodbye To You, Michelle Branch. So, what, I like men who are leaving? Men that I leave? Huh?
    15. How’s my love life? Oh, the best one yet--Break Stuff by Limp Bizkit. Oy.

    So there you have it. I'm all screwed up, and I need to add some happy music to my life. Wow.

  3. 1. How does the world see you?
    Touch Me--Willie Nelson (Touch me and you'll know how it feels with the blues..) Ok, that's depressing. And I thought I was basically a happy person.

    2. Will I have a happy life?
    Sounds of Silence--Simon and Garfunkel. (Hello Darkness, my old friend...) Do I detect a theme here?

    3. What do my friends think of me?
    Via De La Rosa--Sandy Patti What, y'all think I'm a saint, or that I'm about to die?

    4. Do people secretly lust after me?
    Carry On--Crosby, Stills, and Nash (This morning I woke up and I knew...) Well, at least I woke up.

    Losing My Religion by R.E.M And that's exactly what would happen if I ever got pregnant again...

    8. What is some good advice for me?

    9. How will I be remembered?
    I Commit My Love to You by Twila Paris Ok, I can see this, since I've lived most of my life for my husband and kids.

    10. What’s my signature dancing song?
    Wouldn't It Be Nice by the Beach Boys. Dang, that's a hard song to dance to.

    11. What’s my current theme song?
    Dear God. One is the Loneliest Number by Three Dog Night. (All about being alone, being rejected...)

    12. What do others think is my current theme song?
    You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby by Bobby Darin 'Cause I'm so not beautiful now?

    13. What shall they play at my funeral?

    14. What type of men do I like?
    Lovin You by Bobby Darin Oh, yeah. I do love a man who loves me.

    15. How’s my love life? 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover by Paul Simon What? Is this some kind of hint?

    Kate, Amy--I'll blame you two if I have weird dreams tonight.

  4. SNORT, Tori! Yeah, with all that, you'd better start praising the Almighty PDQ. I think I'll join you in the signing-up-for-better-karma line.
