After you read this meme, you have to do it, too. (So, not stolen. Tagged. By A Fistful of Stitches)
If your life were a soundtrack, what would the music be?
Here’s how it works:
1. open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, iPod)
2. put it on shuffle
3. press play
4. for every section, type the song that’s playing
5. next section — press the next button
6. don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool
Should've Been a Cowboy by Toby Keith (when this song came out I hated it. Hated it! They were make believe movie cowboys! But you know, I should've been.)
I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers
first day at school:
Beer For My Horses Toby Keith and Willie Nelson (No way. Beer? Yuck.)
falling in love:
I Still haven't Found What I'm looking For - U-2. (I did NOT cheat! So cool).
Rockstar by Nickleback.
Superman (It's Not Easy) Five For Fighting (?? I didn't even go to the prom. Bad shuffle)
I Love A Rainy Night Eddie Rabbit. (I do and it is)
Feeling Good by Michael Buble. (Oh, that figures.)
Shop Around by Captain & Tenille (Driving? Wouldn't this have been better for Prom? And quit snickering. You all have Captain & Tenille on your iPod's too. Don't you? Doesn't everyone? )
Walking After Midnight -by Patsy Cline (that'sthe perfect song to blast after a big fight)
getting back together:
You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine - Lou Rawls
You'll Accompany Me by Cornbread Red's Bluegrass Tribute to Bob Seger
birth of child:
One For My Baby - Frank Sinatra. Seems fairly appropriate (other than my childless state) until you realize the other half of the song is "and one more for the road")
In The Air Tonight - Genesis (I think I like Theme music)
Holiday Music??? a lecture by Prof Robert Greenberg (Bah. humbug)
Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley. Oh, I could not have picked a song I'd like better.
The Second Mitten! Huzzah! Doesn't it look innocent lying there? The deceptive thing. I had to redo it four mittens over. First, my normal inability to count messed up the chart set up pattern and now I'm working on my fourth try finishing it off.
I think. I know I tried to do that "Loop The Live Stitches Through With A Crochet Hook" trick when I had something like.....fourteen live stitches left. Uh, too many. Rip back.
Then I completely disregarded the pattern because at that point, easy! Who needs to look at a pattern? Yeah, easy to get the pattern completely wrong. Rip.
Next I bound it off, in pattern, right amount of stitches.......except for those two stitches a few rows down gaily hanging out waving at each other. I have no idea how I can drop stitches and NOT NOTICE for rows and rows. No picture, darn it. I ripped it back (somewhat savagely) before I thought of taking one.
I'm trying not to think about how much I like the rounded mitten top better. And see? Whole, unharmed dpn's! So far. [darkly].
Not to mention, I was a wee bit worried about running out of yarn - I still have to knit the thumbs you know. Who WHO is following me around stealing my skeins? I don't buy single skeins. Ever. EVER.
Hez sez: "I'm guarding this skein with my life. See? [zzzzzz]Don't be such a worrywart. There's more than enough here to finish the mitten and knit the two thumbs! [aside] If you have cat thumbs like me."
