It's a few hours before our scheduled dance lesson. I have to go get my clothes and my shoes (apparently, you can't roll up in jeans a t-shirt) but before I do (I might sneak in a nap too), I wanted to take the time to do something a little off-topic. I saw this on one of my blog buddy's blogs. Sounds like a fun game. Although, I'm not exactly thrilled with the underlying theme and subliminal messages sent my way.
Play Ouija With Your iPod
1. Put Your iTunes on Shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.
a. If someone says, “Is this okay?” you say…
Somebody to Love, Queen
(See, the thing is, if you have somebody to love you can ask them this question. So, I can't really answer 'Is this okay' because that's a question you need to ask your loved ones. Unless, of course, it's my wife asking me, to wit I'd reply 'Yes, dear.')
b. How would you describe yourself?
Sisters of the Moon, Fleetwood Mac
(I cook. I bake. For all intents and purposes, I'm a stay-at-home parent. Why ever would you mistake me for a 'Sister?' Wait, maybe you shouldn't answer that...)
c. What do you like in a girl?
In The Jailhouse Now, Soggy Bottom Boys
(Seems I have a thing for bad girls)
d. How do you feel today?
We'll be Together Again, Rod Stewart
(My wife got back from a business trip so we're together, preparing for our dance lesson, blissfully happy... or something)
e. What is your life’s purpose?
(My purpose is to be vague apparently. Yes, I have a mantra, but that's as far as I've gotten)
f. What is your motto?
American Woman, The Guess Who
(Okay, I sense a theme here - sisters, women, ha ha, very funny)
g. What do your friends think of you?
(Yeah, I'm on the outside, just an outsider on the outside)
h. What do you think of your parents?
Te Solte La Rienda, Mana [translation: I let go of your reins]
(How awesome was that? I have dozens upon dozens of Spanish songs on my iPod and this is the first one that pops up. And yes, I let go of my parents' reins a while ago... which actually is true in reverse)
i. What do you think about often?
(I'm not even going to go there right now...)
j. What is 2 + 2?
Bongo Bong, Manu Chao
(Silly answer for a silly question)
k. What do you think of your best friend?
Chocolate, Carmen Gonzalez
(Maybe my best friend IS chocolate)
l. What is your life story?
Civil War, Guns n Roses
(What we've got here is failure to communicate)
m. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Bone, Sonic Youth
(I guess at some point I'll just be a big bone, or a pile of them anyway)
n. What do you think of when you see the person you like?
Sludge Factory, Alice in Chains
(NO! Honestly, I don't...)
o. What will you dance to at your wedding?
Material Girl, Madonna
(What the hell is this doing on my iPod? See, the theme continues... and for the record, I don't recall any Madonna songs at my wedding)
p. What will they play at your funeral?
Where the Wild Things Are, Metallica
(Maybe they could read the book too)
q. What is your hobby/interest?
Real Good Man, Tim McGraw
(Can I just state for the record that I am 100 percent man? This theme is getting out of hand...I suppose I could say that BEING a Real Good Man is my hobby, interest... yeah, we'll go with that)
r. What is your biggest fear?
Under the Bridge, Red Hot Chili Peppers
(I don't want to end up homeless, living under a bridge - oooh, I made one work)
s. What is your biggest secret?
Grind, Alice in Chains
(No, I don't have any of those skeletons in my closet)
t. What do you think of your friends?
Substitute, The Who
(My friends are interchangeable, apparently)
u. What will you post this as?
Ready to Run, Dixie Chicks
(How appropriate, a song about a woman, sung by women.. ha ha)
