Music and a Meme

Wow, yippee!

Thanks for the feedback on the music post. I knew there was something to that whole asking nicely thing. I like just about all music, aside from extremely violent rock/metal type stuff (or whatever it may be called these days) and crude rap(ish) stuff. I don't really like women being called dirty ho's, go figure.

(And now, pardon me while I address all your comments right here, out of pure laziness.)

E.B. - I went and listened to some Ray Lamontagne samples. Thank you for the reminder!

Danielle - If you want to email me samples, please do. Or, tell me where I can get it. I'm thinking I like this GB Leighton deal. (justrungirl at hotmail)

Adam - Are you kidding? I adore some good banjo pickin'. I actually do know OCMS, too, so thanks for that reminder!

Sizzle - Honestly, everything plays at some point. I go through phases- rock, R&B, blues, country, classic rock, even a little punk lately. Whatever you want to suggest is fine with me. Thank you! (justrungirl at hotmail, like you didn't know).

Michelle - I will take you up on those preschool songs when I'm babysitting and I need to entertain!

Sister B - Those are some bendy guys, I just don't get it. But we've talked about that before. (hehe)

Dawn - We could SO go to concerts together. Except for that Robin Thicke thing, because, I mean, WHO KNEW?!?

Ginger - Wow, we could totally go to concerts together, too. I'm glad I'm not the only one that still adores Tom Petty. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Bre - Cool! Thank you! I've only heard of Murphys, nothing from Flogging Molly or Tristan Prettyman- until now!

Lia - Thank you, I'm so checking those out! And thanks for visiting my blog!

Celina - I like some Zepplin at times, too. Takes ya back, you know? Nice variety- I, ashamedly, forget about solely instrumental stuff sometimes. Thanks!

JACC - 4 gigs? Wow. If you just want to suggest one or two, that's cool (songs, artists, etc., not one or two gigs- teehee). Seriously, you pick. It will open my mind to something new. (justrungirl at hotmail) As I mentioned, nothing too scary. Thank you!

And now, a meme. I was tagged by the fun and interesting Dawn.

1. What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why? (two sentences max)

The volunteer work I've done with several community organizations. It's fulfilling, it's interactive, and it's over quick- nice thoughts, eh?

2. Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did? (one sentence max)

I used to have more opportunities to go water skiing- that was fun.

3. Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting it off? (one sentence max)

I don't really put things off; not realistic things under my control, anyway (changing my mind does not count).

4. What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why? (two sentences max)

These aren't the only two things but, one, I want to learn to be a better piano player because I can think of no time in life when that wouldn't be fabulous. Two, I would like to learn the guitar someday as I haven't played a real song since "She'll be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" at the age of seven.

5. If you could take a class/workshop/apprentice from anyone in the world living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn? (two more sentences, max)

Jimmy Buffett... because I'd like to be fiercely business-minded and intently faithful all the while living and portraying the image of carefree, laid-back fun. I'm getting better at it, but I'm pretty sure he could help.

6. What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?


7. Now list two more words you wish described you…

Boat owner.

(SOMEDAY! Settle down.)

8. What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes– three sentences max)

Being a thoughtful friend, sister, daughter, granddaughter, etc.
Being part of something bigger than myself.

9. Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone (with the answer in three sentences max)

Hey, baby, what's your sign?

Answer: Libra.

I don't believe in astrology, really.

And that's that. I'm not sure how telling it is, but you can sure tell what kind of mood I'm in today. I blame the snow.

Interesting meme - some seemed quite difficult.
