Meme – iTunes Poetry

Hey! Another meme!

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

Boat’s Up The River And It Won’t Come Down

There is trouble in the world today
On rides the captain and three hundred soldier lads
I hear what you’re telling me but that don’t make it so.
Well first you gotta want to get off

At first I didnt understand when she walked through the door
You’re like a cool breeze to a hot spell
He’s so fine
Can’t you see I love you

Hey porter, hey porter would you tell me the time
Let me tell ya little ’bout this lady I know
When I’m alone and I’m staring at my wedding band
Whoa my oh my oh my I’m falling in love again

You came home and that’s all right
Oh Susie Q baby I love you Susie Q
What kind of love have you got
It was my first night in paris
Girl, don’t tell me that it’s morning

I guess I should have known by the way you parked your car sideways
The full moon is glowing out so bright it’s right out on the highway
Reveal to me the mystery

I missed two on economics, which doesn’t surprise me. Hm. Maybe I should make an economics class my “unrestricted elective”.

I love history.

The things I carry

Bag Meme!

Stolen from Ponks

01. Take a picture of your bag.
02. Now dump everything out and neatly adjust them, and take a picture [no matter how embarrassing].
03. Talk about the items inside. Details, plz.
04. Tag 6 people.

Current Bag

My current bag. Bought it a week or so ago at Charming Charlie, and so far it hasn’t annoyed me much at all! This is unusual. Perhaps I’ve found a bag I can live with?

What's in my bag?

Year in Review meme (ganked from geodyne)

This is a neat meme – it’s a review of the year, as seen by your LJ. Take the first sentence of the first entry of each month of 2005. There’s your year in review. Now, I cheated somewhat in that if it was a meme, I took the next entry. :)

January: Fireworks have been going off since 7 pm.

February: I’m not dead yet!

March: So this morning, as usual, I have eggos for breakfast.

April: I was going to post this huge entry about how Rob and I were pregnant, but then I realised I’d never be able to be convincing.

May: So after the debacle last year, we decided not to go to Scarborough for our anniversary this year. (This post was much more upbeat than the first sentence seems to imply)

June: Whups, it’s been a while. It’s just been my plain ‘ol boring life, but gosh it takes up time.

July: O’ Connor is retiring.

August: Nichols said the toddler ran for the bong.

September: You know, this was a hurricane.

October: This has been a really fun, geeky day.

November: Thought I’d dust off the LJ posting client for a moment to say that Batman Begins is a seriously fucking awesome movie.

December: Does anyone know if there’s a way to convert Impulse Tracker files to MP3? (I ended up using winamp on a windows box to convert it to wav, then I was able to convert it into iTunes.)

Note to everyone: The Blenders are FABULOUS. I’m completely enamoured of this Christmas album, and I’m getting one of their non-Christmas albums as well. Great stuff.
