Hump Day Hunt

It's time for the weekly photo meme from the folks at Foto Pherrets

Christmas is coming. Santa's elves are busy making these...

Our word for this week is:

Toy



My I-dog is one of my favorite toys. I love to watch him dance to the music.

This week it's all about winter.
Snow, cold, seasonal holidays....



Three songs.

1. December Snow - The Moody Blues
2. November Rain - Guns 'N Roses
3. A Winter's Tale - The Moody Blues

Three artists who warm you up when it's cold out.
1. Michael Schenker

It's obvious why these artists heep me warm. They're HOT!

Three albums.

1. Barenaked For The Holidays - The Barenaked Ladies



2. Christmas Island - Jimmy Buffett



3. A Twisted Christmas - Twisted Sister



Amazing! I actually own some Christmas music that isn't snarky.

Manic Monday

Back in the Day

Name one thing you always wanted as a child, but never received.


A horse!
It could be because I've always lived within the city limits where you are not allowed to keep one...

What childhood activity would you like to try again?
Taking temper tantrums.
Oops! I still do that on a regular basis.
Perhaps riding a bicycle. I haven't done that in ages. They say that you never forget...

What were you scared of when you were a kid?
The usual things like the dark and thunderstorms...

Actually, I'm still a little bit frightened of both of these things.

I got the last one they had at the local Wal Mart yesterday. Sweet....

I Am Not A Nerd!

Woo hoo! Isn't this good to know?!

You Are 20% Nerdy

You are definitely not nerdy - in fact, you probably don't know any nerds.
You probably care a little too much about your image. No one will know if you secretly watch Star Trek reruns!


How Nerdy Are You?

It's time for the weekly photo meme from the folks at Foto Pherrets

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the good ol' U. S. of A., so Mama Pherret (Who could she be?!) will be doing plenty of this!
Not to worry if you live elsewhere, you'll be doing it as well, except probably not as much!

Our word for this week is:

Eat



Our recently departed Buddha having his Thanksgiving dinner.

Damn! I miss that kitty.

Take Me Back Tuesday

Turn on the radio.

Sorry, Fallen, I don't do radio. A long-term bad relationship with a DJ makes it leave a very BAD taste in my mouth.

Let's just set my media player on all music, shuffle play...

What are the first three songs that are played?

1. Wanted Dead Or Alive
2. Into The Fire
3. Higher Love

Name the artists.

1. Bon Jovi
2. Dokken
3. Steve Winwood

Name three albums by one or all of the artists.
1. Keep The Faith - Bon Jovi



2. Back For The Attack - Dokken



3. Chronicles - Steve Winwood

Manic Monday

Go Ahead, Try It

Name one ritual you'd like to work into your day.

I'd really like to have a ritual of spending at least an hour with my guitars every day. Alas, at this time of year, I'm lucky if I can work in just a few minutes with them!

What is something that you'd like to try that would surprise someone that knows you?
I'm such an off-the-wall person, I doubt that there is anything that I'd like to try that would surprise anyone who really knows me.
The strangest thing that I'd like to try... well... I'd love to get a pilot's license!
I don't see much chance of that ever happening though.

What is something that you've tried, that looking back, you're surprised that you did.
Hmmm... I honestly can't think of anything.
My motto: I'll try anything, ONCE!
That could be the reason...

Random Ten

It's time to recap my weekend once again!

10 songs that sum up your weekend...or were on your weekend playlist...and one picture that relates back.
(oh, and if you feel like it, tell us why you picked the songs you did)

I could list the songs I heard playing today at Wheeling Island. I could list the tracks from the Christmas Cheer mixed CD that I made today. But none of that would be as much fun as the randomness spat out at me by my media player tonight!

Here we go...

1. Take It On The Run - REO Speedwagon
2. Possession - Bad English
3. Hot Blooded -Foreigner
4. Bangla Desh - George Harrison
5. Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard
6. Question -The Moody Blues
7. Over Now - Michael Schenker Group
8. Wah - Wah - George Harrison
9. Here In My Heart - The Scorpions & The Berliner Philharmoniker
10. Keep On Loving You - REO Speedwagon


Not as weird as some weeks, but still pretty weird!

And now for the picture...



Sorry, Andrea, it's not the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, but it IS a barge travelling down (or is it up?) the Ohio River.

Guess Where I'm Going Tomorrow!

I'll give you a tiny hint...



Woo Hoo! Slot machines, pretty lights, and ISLAND BUFFET!!!!

It has been way too long since I was last there, in may I think.
I need a gambling and pigging out fix!

Top Five On Friday

Top Five Songs That Make You Laugh

1.
Arachnophobiac - Michael Schenker Group
You'll never look at a spider the same way a gain!

2. Wang Dang Doodle - Schenker Pattison Summit
With a title like that, you've gotta laugh!

3. Elf's Lament - Barenaked Ladies
Oh, the plight of santa's elves!

4. Down In Amsterdam - Paul Revere & The Raiders
If this song doesn't make you laugh, there is something wrong with you!

5. Used To Love Her - Guns 'N Roses
"I used to love her, but I had to kill her..."
Change the "her" to a "him" and this song pretty much sums up my evil fantasies about "the estranged one."

|

ARGH!

Thanksgiving has yet to come, but still I am greeted by this every day on my route now!



Santa Claus!

Every year, people start to decorate for Christmas a little bit earlier. I swear that one day Santa will be smiling at me from their yards before the kids go back to school!

Monday Madness

This week, more questions from our fellow participants!

1. If you could only read one blog every day- which one blog would be on your daily list?
If I can only read one blog every day, I can have seven blogs on my list, one for each day of the week...
My sister, Elena, Samantha, Russ, SAP, Khushrenada13, and Julie would each have a day.

2. What do you do to de-stress from a hectic day?
Lots of really loud metal music!

3. What is your favorite piece of clothing to wear in the winter?
My fleece snowman robe. It's getting pretty ratty. I'm gonna mis it when it falls apart. So nice and warm and comfy to snuggle up in when I get home from work!

4. Do you prefer discussing problems with a sibling, a parent, a significant other, a psychologist, or a total stranger?
I prefer to bottle my problems up inside until I explode! Then whoever is handy gets to hear all about them.

5. How long have you been blogging?
About three and a half years, give or take a month or two...

6. Which side of the bed?
Since I sleep alone, any side that I want!

7. How often do you pig out when you eat?
I must pig out at least once a week, usually on Sunday. It makes watching what I eat for the rest of the week much easier.

8. Do you watch the space shuttle launches?
I couldn't watch, even if I wanted to. They do those things during my working hours.

9. What's your favorite leisure-time activity?
Er... Um...



You just HAD to ask, didn't you?!

10. When is the last time you said, 'I love you' and to whom?
What about hugs? Who is the last person you hugged?

The most recent recipient of my affections is my son, Michael, in both instances. I'm fairly certain that I was being sarcastic, and he didn't appreciate the hug!

It's time to recap my weekend once again!

10 songs that sum up your weekend...or were on your weekend playlist...and one picture that relates back.

Here are the first ten of this morning!

1. American Idiot - Green Day
2. Could I've Been So Blind? - The Black Crowes
3. Destroyed By You - Vanilla Ninja

You don't get many mixes that are weirder than this one.

And now for the picture...



Ooooo! It's that "Sex Bomb" Russian figure skater. I can't get enough of him.
Michael is gonna kill me if I watch that You Tube clip one more time!

Veteran's Day 2006

No matter what your nation, though, take some time to hug a veteran today!

Top Five On Friday

Top Five Artists/Bands that should just stop singing.
(Tell us why you chose them too)

1. Celine (Sealion) Dion - Actually, I think that the sealion make a sound more pleasing than her voice!

2. Whitney Houston - I ceased to enjoy her music when she decided to take singing lessons. If she wants to be an opera star, she should go sing in the opera!

3. Christina Aguilera (however you spell her name) - SKANK! A local one, too! Put your freaking clothes on and sing, or go away!

4. Shania Twain - I bet if she got fat, no one would buy her CDs. Are we selling music or SEX?!

5. Metallica - May people "steal" your music more and more every day! For starting all of the crap with the RIAA you deserve musical death!

Monday Madness

Using the letters in your name (first, last, both, whatever), describe your life!

L
istening to music each morning awakens me.
Another day of delightful postal work awaits me.
Driving the short five miles to work seems like a hundred!
Yikes! That's a lot of mail!

Soon enough, my workday comes to an end.
Travelling home can be annoying at 5 PM!
At long last, I am home.
Relaxing a bit at my computer before dinner.
Listening to more music!
I prefer Michael Schenker and The Scorpions.
Go to curves if I have the time.
Hopefully there will be something good on TV.
Too tired to stay awake. Time for bed!

Damn! I lead a boring life...
