I am blantantly going to rip off a game from Chance's blog for tonight's posting. There are few reasons for this. The first is that I am exhausted from my trip. Secondly, the creative juices were spent on other writings this evening. (I very much enjoyed what I was writing.) Third, I promised a post tonight and I don't want to break a promise to my (few) loyal readers. Finally, it is actually a cool idea and will probably be used again in the future.
So here is the iPod shuffle game. The idea is to hit shuffle and write something about whatever song comes up. So in following with Chance's formula...let's do 5 songs.
Rhythm Is Gonna Get You by Gloria Estefan - This song still kinda scares me. I am not entirely sure why it is on my iPod. It doesn't have a great beat or anything and like I said, it kinda freaks me out. I always picture King Kong when I hear this.
Jesus Of Suburbia by Green Day - (Already blogged about this song.) I like this song a little more every time I hear it. It is so long that I never get to the end of it. This song makes me feel less alone. Sometimes it is hard to feel a connection to Christ because let's face it, we have nothing in common. Yet this song makes me feel like in spite of all of this...Jesus is alive in the modern world and that is a nice feeling.
The Armed Forces Medley performed by the CG Band - If ever there was any doubt about what a geek I am...there shouldn't be now. Yes this is actually on my iPod. What can I say, it makes me smile every time I hear it.
Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits - So I think that I bought this song by mistake. I am pretty certain that I had never heard this song until it came one day at work and I thought "What the hell is this?" That minor detail aside, I have grown to like it. I imagine that it is a spontaneous dancing song. You know...like maybe out in the sticks under the moon light. (Tick checking must be included though.) I do wonder what I meant to buy when I clicked on this.
Get Off by Foxy - This song reminds me of every high school dance I ever attended but particularly sophomore homecoming because of the school bus thing. This song prompts memories of Adam S and Wes G doing the worm as we all cheered in a circle. It prompts memories of us girls dressed in insanely priced gowns and jewerly foolishly borrowed from our moms, doing that ridiculous hand pump in the air. The DJ always saved this song to right after the queen and king were announced as way to shake of the "romantic glow" and to get the non-winners back on the dance floor. Good times.
So I actually enjoyed this. Next will be the Wikipedia game that Victor posted about last week.
I will be closing the blog for another few days as I recover from my surgery. Hopefully all will go well and I will back by the end of the weekend. In the event that it takes longer than a few days, here are a few thoughts that I want to leave you with.
1.) Tom Brady is a crybaby and a faker. The boot was a publicity stunt/scare tactic that was no doubt engineered by Emperor Belichick.
2.) Friendly phone calls/texts/emails will be appreciated since I will be watching depressing TV because it will hurt to laugh. (I learned my lesson the last time with Jackass 2.)
3.) Congrats to Chance for getting his teaching contract!
4.) Congrats to Todd on the news of baby #3! I hope you have a girl. 8>)
5.) The PATS SUCK and I sincerely hope that they get their asses handed to them on Sunday. 23-17 sounds pretty damn good to me Plaxico!
In the event that it goes really badly...Todd has been tasked with carrying on the Millie Blog in my absense.
