I shuffle and the songs answer

Wednesday~ April 22, 2009

The insightful, gifted, lovely and amazing Kelly of Love Well tagged me to do an ipod meme. I'm usually SO bad at following through with memes, but I love me an ipod meme. Such fun surprises awaited as I shuffled through my songs. Check it.

Heidi of Minnesota Mom
Elizabeth of Finding Him Bigger
Jen of Buried With Children
Mommy Mo of Growing up Mo'

Peanut of Peanut, Peanut-lover, and the Weenuts
And anyone else who feels like shuffling!

To those of you who have been tagged: In the event that you completely forget to do this, or you've done it before, or you totally don't feel like doing it, you are entirely forgiven.

P.S. It's a busy week for us, so I might just disappear for awhile. You'll be missed! I have to stay focused though, you know, on socializing. I can't get distracted. It's like Miles likes to say "Mommy, can you UNstract yourself?" Yes, I think I should :)

Does this apply to my windows media player? My kids are the ones with the mp3s ;) Will take a little bit for me to do, but I LIKE IT

I'm sensing baaad thing with mine, cuz I have some booty shakin' songs lol

mama-face said...

I'm going to do this just because it looks fun; even though I wasn't officially tagged. Is that an acceptable blog thing to do?

:-D

LexiconLuvr said...

I love the UN-stracted comment. I tells ya, you ought to write a book with just the widsom that comes out of the mouth of Miles!

LisAway said...

That last one's perfect! And your motto as a mom? Stay! As in, don't walk away. Good for you. I'm pretty proud of myself for sticking it out this far, too. :)

Have a nice break! I'll miss you! (even though I don't comment as often as I want to, I DO read and love, I can only sometimes get through to comment, though.)

Sheryl said...

how fun!!

and did i hear you say (read you write) that you are working on socializing? oh.my.word.

we really were separated at birth MANY years apart.

Debbie said...

I love the whole idea of "unstracting" yourself. How clever that Miles is. He nailed that one.
I don't have an Ipod so I guess I can't play along. Got any memes from the last century? Apparently, I'm stuck there.
I hope your week is good busy and not bad busy.
I'm working on your second career advice over here. I'll get back to you asap:)

Kazzy said...

We all need some unstracting sometimes, no doubt. Loved your answers. I have never been a shuffle person. Maybe the unorganized nature of it drives me nuts!

Deb said...

this is cute! and i like your taste in music. u2, peter gabriel, james taylor. i must check out this sara groves.

MoziEsmé said...

That's hilarious - I love the "Rewrite This Tragedy" one...

Tooj said...

I think it's funny how the ipod shuffle forward/tags actually work out to silly but possible answers. :) What's the first subject? One, of course.

Jen said...

I have done a similar meme like this before but this one is a little different. I will do it this weekend. Shuffle away.

Elizabeth said...

I've never understood how right on this meme is. Yours is the best one I've read.

Thanks for tagging me! And I'm going to do it- the iPod is in my hubby's car. He refused to go outside in his underwear to get it for me, so I'll have to do it in the morning!

charrette said...

Wow, some of those were just too good to believe you really shuffled and got them at random. (But I know you well enough to know you wouldn't cheat) :)

Fun idea.

Brimful Curiosities said...

Love the Stuck in a Moment one!! Guess that probably applies to us all.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Sorry I haven't been around much! I have missed reading your posts! But, in light of spring break and going out of town today, my mommy guilt has been riding me hard . . .

minnesotamom said...

I'm super-bummed that I can't play. Because I don't have an iPod. Husband does, but it wouldn't really be the same if it was his music. :)
