Writing Wrongs

April 06, 2006

Hereís a meme thatís going around:

Put your iTunes/iPod on shuffle. Ask the following questions and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. Oh, and youíre not supposed to cheat and forward to the next song if you get one you donít like.

1. How does the world see you? Where Itís At, by Beck ~ Oh, yeah, thatís me. Iíve got two turn tables and a microphone, too.

2. Will I have a happy life? Donít Leave Home, by Dido ~ As in, never leave the house, or simply never stray far from home. Could make a difference.

3. What do my friends think of me? Brand New Day, by Sting ~ The significance of this escapes me.

4. Do people secretly lust after me? One, by U2 ~ Darn, just the one?

5. How can I make myself happy? Every Breath You Take, by The Police ~ Iíll take this to mean live and be happy rather than becoming an obsessed, scary stalker type person.

6. What should I do with my life? Hallelujah, by Rufus Wainwright ~ Again with the whole significance escaping me thing.

7. Will I ever have children? Well, thatís s silly question. How about, Whatís my kidsí theme song? Rock me Amadeus, by Falco (the German version) ~ This is just weird, but then the kids are mostly German.

8. What is some good advice for me? Holiday/Boulevard of Broken Dreams, by Green Day ~ I walk the lonely road? Sounds . . . lonely.

9. How will I be remembered? Invisible Sun, by The Police ~ Iím just going to pretend this is a good thing.

10. What's my signature dancing song? Itís All Been Done, by Barenaked Ladies ~ I love this song.

11. What's my current theme song? Rio, by Duran Duran ~ Strangely enough, my friends back in high school decided this was my theme song.

12. What do others think is my current theme song? Superman (Itís Not Easy), by Five for Fighting ~ You know, itís not easy to be me.

13. What type of men do I like? Desire, by U2 ~ Oh, ho, ho, ho. Notice this type of question ended up with U2 songs. Creepy coincidence or prophetic?

14. How's my love life? Buddy Holly, by Weezer ~ My love life is geeky. This should come as no surprise. Woo, hoo, I look just like Buddy Holly, oh, oh, and youíre Mary Tyler Moore . . .
