Ok...another meme...because I got nothin' for ya today, dudes. So...went to my trusty drawer of memes and found another one.
You put your ipod on shuffle and then of course, each question gets a song.
Here we go.
1) Your first kiss:
The Best Day by Taylor Swift.
Depends on if you count the time Mike Day chased me on the last day of school in fifth grade swearing that he was going to kiss me. And did. It wasn't horrid, but I was sweaty and practically bawling because I didn't think that he would REALLY do it and he DID. I prefer to count the much later day when I was kissed by Ben in the closet at my first boy/girl party when we were chosen in Spin The Bottle. I was a happy participant and it was a very lovely kiss.
2) First date:
Baby Don't You Break My Heart Slow by Vonda Shepard
No heart breaking occurred. We were both happy daters and when it was time to say goodbye after a long series of dates, we were both ready. A good time was had by all.
3) First Day of Kindergarten:
Sunshine On My Shoulders by John Denver.
I was really ready for school and although I'm not sure if the sun was shining, I had the BEST kindergarten teacher on the planet. We were her last class before retiring. She taught me how to skip and she was a loving, warm hearted teacher.
4) Relationship with parents:
What's Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner.
Wayyyy offfff. I don't know that I have ever loved anyone except Liv as much as I loved my Da. And my Mother? I didn't like her much, but I did love her and I think the feeling was mutual.
5) Relationship With Siblings:
Up Up And Away by The Fifth Dimension.
Huh? I don't recall any balloons in any sister outings. But, hey..it IS an ongoing experience and sometimes a lot of fun. Other times, not so much. I believe we call that LIFE.
6) First real love affair:
To The Edge Of The Earth by Michael Nyman
Yes, we did visit there. In a good way and in a very bad way.
7) First Break-Up:
You've Got Another Thing Comin' by Judas Priest
Hmmm. There was a lot of pain, a lot of anger but I carefully muted it. I wanted out SO BADLY and was terrified that she'd try to off herself again if I left, so I tiptoed carefully out. But, yes...inside I was royally pissed off. I STILL get mad when I think of how she blackmailed me into staying with her for six months when it was so obviously over.
8) BFF song:
What She's Doing Now by Garth Brooks
Not sure what THAT means. I always know what she's doing because we text like...20 times a day. And most times it is just to make silly observances like "Got a nose picker in the car next to me. Barf."
9) Partner song:
Two Sleepy People by Carly Simon
Yup. That's us. Always tired. But, still sharing chicken bones and sitting in chairs together.
10) Your relationship with your child(ren):
Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear by Elvis Presley
Not really. Neither Liv nor I are the mooshy type. We do say I love yous but we aren't all gooey with each other. And she DOES have a teddy bear. His name is Bobo. This was her attempt to say "blue bear" when she was 2. He is light blue with a white nose and whenever I had to wash him, she would crouch next to the washer watching him go 'round and 'round and grieve that he was getting dizzy. Bobo goes on all trips with us. Always. God forbid we forget him. She never had a "blankie" or anything like that. She just has Bobo. He still sleeps with her every single night.
11) Song about fights with your partner/husband/wife/whomever:
Redemption by Johnny Cash
We rarely fight BIG LARGE anymore, we have the giant things figured out by now and we know exactly what not to get into it with each other about. But, sometimes...we have at it and it's not pretty. And yes, we badly need redemption when the smoke clears.
12) Song about your career:
I Heard It Through The Grapevine by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Hmmm. We are a group of women, but there is precious little gossiping with us. Or maybe I just don't notice it. I think (with the exception of my secretary) we are a pretty tight group. And she told me today that "Every day, retirement sounds better." I was verrrrryyyyy encouraging and said that I thought she was ready too. This backfired because she suddenly looked quite alarmed. She's one of those people where it has to be HER idea. I should have said, "I don't know how we'll survive without you, Nanette!" And then maybe she'd have given me her walking papers. If wishes were horses.....
13) How you feel about your co-workers:
Manic Monday by The Bangles
It usually is. And the rest of the week too. We roll that way.
14) How you feel right now:
Wallflower Waltz by k.d. lang
I don't know about that. I feel pretty joined at the hip with my partner lately.
15) Family vacations when you were a kid:
The Rhythm Of The Saints by Paul Simon
Well, we DID have to say the rosary in the car as we started out the drive to the destination and no matter where we were...we had to go to mass on Sunday. We also prayed every night as a family, kneeling and my Da would make the sign of the cross on our foreheads when he kissed us goodnight. As I said, I grew up in a very religious Irish Catholic family. Even on vacation, we hit our knees regularly.
16) First sexual experience:
A Big Hunk O'Love by Elvis Presley
Yeah, it was. Pretty much.
17) What's your future look like?
Never Think by Rob Pattinson
Best not to, yes?
18) What your family was like growing up:
Hungry Like The Wolf by Duran Duran
Um. No. We didn't go hungry. Ever. And I feel sort of embarrassed to have this on my play list. Shhh. Don't tell.
19) What your own family is like now:
Older by Colbie Caillat
Well,now. Yes. We are getting older. How astute.
20) What will you be like in your old age:
The Problem Is You by Lee DeWyze
It always fucking is, isn't it? I am not going gently into that good night.
21) What your partner thought when you first met:
Only you Can Love Me This Way by Keith Urban
Aw,honey. You silver tongued devil.
22) What you thought when you first met your partner:
Richard Cory by Simon and Garfunkel
Liar,liar, pants on fire! I swear I wasn't thinking of him, honey. It was all you. Still is. Pinky swear.
23) What your child(ren) thinks of you as a parent:
Breakable by Ingrid Michaelson
Well, I hope not. I'd hate for her to think I'm a wimpy ass parent.
24) What your co-workers think of you:
Crazy by Cat Stevens
Well, maybe. A little bit. But in a good way, right? RIGHT?
25) What your neighbors think of you:
Belong by Cary Brothers
Glad to be here too! Thanks!
26) What your best friend thinks of you:
Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not by Thompson Square
Well, Harriet. All this time you've been crushing on me, haven't you? I KNEW IT! Sorry, I just wanna be friends. No tears. No tears... :)
27) What your family thinks of you:
Collide by Howie Day
Well, if you'd all leave the dark side and become Democrats,there would be a lot more getting along, girlies. Come over to the force. It's nirvana over here.
28) What your partner felt the first time you kissed:
Mona Lisas And The Mad Hatters by Sir Elton John
I am a bit buzzy, but admit it...you liked it.
So...okay...wonder how you'd all fare...
