How I feel about it all: dorkydorky
Soundtrack: Tori Amos - Carbon
Favourite song meme:

Place your six current favourite songs in your journal, and tag others to do the same.

These are indeed my current favourites, because what I listen to changes like the tide, and they'll probably be different tomorrow:

1. Franz Ferdinand - Michael. Such a fun, upeat song. Beautiful boys on a beautiful dance floor. :)

2. Five For Fighting - 100 Years. Midlife crisisy stuff. Makes me all weepy. I love torturing myself, apparently. But really, it's a lovely, and addictive, song.

3. Tori Amos - Carbon. Because I just discovered it last night (have never listened to Scarlet's Walk; must do so) and it's so breathtaking and gorgeous and pretty piano and Tori. I've got it on repeat loop at the moment. songdog will probably like this.

4. Dispatch - The General. The lyrics and the way they jam words into a line. And the message, oh, so good.

5. The Who - Real Good Looking Boy. Because because because. It makes me feel good.

6. Patty Larkin - Dave's Holiday (live). Y'all wouldn't understand. Well, you would if you met my ex-husband, because this song pretty much describes him to a T. His name's even Dave. My kids and I still start whistling when he starts acting Dave-ish. He has no idea why. *giggles* It's a fun song even without the reference, because we all know someone like Dave. The live version is the best, 'cause it has the intro!

And, I'm supposed to tag six people to do this meme:


Tag, you're it!

Now I will go clean, because dammit, I'm not doing anything I don't want to tomorrow.

Oh, and? It's not too late to sponsor me or Isaac (aka mr_t00by) when we walk tomorrow in the RI Project AIDS Walk. Sponsor us and do something to help others, not to mention make my turning 44 a less sucky experience. *nudges you guys*

I remember "Dave's Story"! Patty Larkin would come to my summer camp every summer and sing that song. No guff.

Yay for the walk tomorrow! And, happy birthday!

As I've said before, I'm so grateful for your and your son's efforts. My best friend John is up for the weekend since we always spend June 3rd together. 10 years ago yesterday, John was diagnosed with HIV. I was with him then and have been with him ever since. As an aside, my user name comes from him. When we got the news and sat in his living room trying to process it, John said "nothing left to do but live an inspired life." It's because of John and the inspiration and love that he is for me that i try to do so every day.

He's with me right now and he's so pleased to know that you and your son are walking and that i've sponsored you. We have a rough day ahead of us tomorrow and it soothes our souls a bit to know that you'll be walking (especially since this is the first year we won't be).

Wow, I'm rambling. Please know how grateful and touched we are. *hugs*A

John's lucky to have you for a friend, dear. :) We'll be thinking of you both tomorrow. It's not a long walk, but it's important, because hopefully it's only a matter of time before it's unecessary.

First of all, Happy Birthday!! I've been looking for you online, but you're not here...hope your walk went well, and we've been thinking of you all day. Turning 44 isn't so bad. Been there, done that, the t-shirt is nothing different than any of the others.

I'll do the six-song tagalong...soon...
