What to muse about today?

As we were trying to herd the kids tonight, Stu told me he sent today’s blog entry. Yeah, yeah I thought.  We’ll see about that. Maybe I want to write about how Ashlin discovered how to use a snack trap. Or maybe how quickly she can get to standing now. Or how she will not just sit any more, but needs to crawl, or move or something. Or even what Teagan dreamed about the other night – not twinkle stars! Or maybe about the funny thing Teagan said while getting her ready for bed.

Well, you know what? He was right! He had sent me this link:

I haven’t been able to watch too much of it yet, but OMFG!!1! it’s awesome.

I need some popcorn.

who me?

Not yet.  She’s not crawling yet.  And last night, she wasn’t sleeping.  Well, not until way too late.  Inhumanly late.  I’m begining to think she’s going just a rude and inconsiderate baby.  Stu woke me up around 1:40 to go up to bed.  She had been downstairs since 10:00.

It’s just not right.

We both got comments about how tired and run down we looked today.

She’s also not crawling yet.  Still.  Though she’s still working on it.

She also doesn’t like to say “mama”, though she is more than capable of saying it.  She has.  If I’m in the room, she just won’t.  She gave me the one “mama” on New Year’s, so that’s enough for her.

Not like this video that Stu shared earlier today.  Which is awesome.  Just, not my baby.  Quite the opposite.  Sigh.

"Shine a little love on my life"

Musical Taste Meme

Patrick tagged me on Facebook for this meme.  It seems that these have migrated from blogs to Facebook.  Anyway, as I have very limited access to Facebook, but more to the net, let’s just move it here :)  No tags, no pressure :)

If I tagged you, it’s because I genuinely think you have some interesting musical tastes…and because it might be entertaining to see what your MP3 player finds in your music collection. So please do this and share, even if I didn’t tag you! Just don’t forget to tag me in your post. :)

1) Turn on your MP3 player or iPod, or music player on your computer.

2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.

3) Write down the first 20 songs that come up — song title and artist — NO editing or cheating, please!

4) Choose 25 people (or however many makes you happy) to be tagged. It is generally considered to be in good taste to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I’m betting that your musical selection is amusing.

To do this, go to the “NOTES” tab on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, enter your 20 shuffle songs, tag 25 people (under the post) then click Publish.

Ok, here goes!

  1. Paolo Nutini – New Shoes
  2. Hed Kandi – Late Night Alumni – no idea where this came from…  Free Discovery Download?
  3. Hair of the Dog – Big Strong Man
  4. Real Life – Send Me An Angel
  5. Josie Cotton – Johnny Are You Queer?
  6. International (English) Beat – Head Man’s Plan
  7. Hair of the Dog – Black and Tan (do you think my iPod knows that we didn’t go to the Black Friday show?)
  8. Shane MacGowan & the Popes – Spanish Lady
  9. Seven Nations – Our Day Will Come
  10. Sum 41 – In Too Deep
  11. EMF – Unbelievable
  12. Sting – Hounds of Winter
  13. Thomas Dolby – She Blinded Me With Science
  14. Billy Preston – Will it Go Around in Circles
  15. The White Stripes – The Same Boy You’ve Always Known
  16. Otis Redding – Sitting By The Dock of the Bay
  17. Rhett Miller – Come Around
  18. Ozomatli – Can’t Stop
  19. English Beat – I Confess
  20. The Boomtown Rats – I Don’t Like Mondays

Man, it almost looks like I had my Irish play list selected.  LOL!  I had to check to be sure I was indeed on “Songs.”  The way the shuffle was working this afternoon, I think I’m glad that I haven’t transferred over any Christmas music yet!  So, let’s throw in a bonus 10 songs, as this has been so much fun :)

  1. Orleans – Dance With Me (ok, maybe not)
  2. ELO – Shine a Little Love
  3. Fatboy Slim – Magic Carpet Ride (remix)
  4. Marvelous 3 – Every Monday
  5. Hair of the Dog – All of the Hard Days Are Gone
  6. Boy Kill Boy – Suzie
  7. The O’Jays – Love Train
  8. Letters to Cleo – Cruel to Be Kind
  9. The Format – Wait, Wait, Wait
  10. Enya – Anywhere Is

Fun.  It was nice having music playing at work this afternoon.  I need to remember to turn it on more often, when I’m doing stuff that allows a bit less concentration.

Tomorrow:  A post about my daughter and her love for hats!  Maybe I’ll throw Halloween and Thanksgiving in there too. :)

Have you read these books?

The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.

Instructions:
1) Look at the list and put an ‘x’ after those you have read.
2) Tally your total at the bottom.
3) Tag others and pass it on. If I tagged you, it is because I think you love to read, like me!

 I’m always amazed at the current books that make these types of list.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

So, I tally 49 (or 51, if you count the partial two).  Not too shabby!  TPTB (or whoever make these lists) need to have a bit more faith…

BBC’s original listing can be found here.   This one isn’t too far off…  Though it had to have been done here in the US, as Pratchett isn’t on the one going around Facebook now.  I’ll pop the BBC’s original with my x’s in here shortly :)

Ok. So the code on this site doesn’t seem to work with 360. Oh well…

This is Kelly’s fault! I need to check where I’ve been in the Caribbean and also locations in the former Yugoslavia. Maybe I’ve been to more countries, maybe less…

Stolen from Patrick, again… hum…


What’s your theological worldview?
created with QuizFarm.com

You scored as Modern Liberal. You are a Modern Liberal. Science and historical study have shown so much of the Bible to be unreliable and that conservative faith has made Jesus out to be a much bigger deal than he actually was. Discipleship involves continuing to preach and practice Jesus’ measure of love and acceptance, and dogma is not important in today’s world. You are influenced by thinkers like Bultmann and Bishop Spong.

You scored 56 Abuse and 56 Effect of abuse!
Simply put, yes, you had one fucked up life and its left its mark. Drunken Christmas Eve’s, dads leather belt, kneeling on broomsticks, that friendly uncle who was a little too friendly…people treated you with less love and respect than you deserved. If its any consolation, I’m angry enough to send some bad vibes their way. No one likes a bully, so remember this was not your fault. Besides, nothing is set in stone. The most important thing is that you become your own person, capable of love and bliss- by your own definition.
