What was your favorite childhood meal? Do you still love it? Does it taste as good as you remember it?

Grilled cheese and tomato soup.  Always awesome.

Although, nowdays, (thanks, wheat allergy!) that means I can't eat the one of my youth.  I need to use bread from the $6 loaf of bread, and I like to throw a little blue cheese on the sandwich, and the soup has to be a wheat-free variety - which Campbells is not.

Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure

Every Baby Needs a Daddy by Marilyn Monroe

Everyone knows she could act, and sing pretty well.  This is one of her early works and her voice is good (the dance blocking is not so good) and then... my gods... the baby dolls!  It's just all so very, very wrong.  But I love this song.  God help me, I do.

the list so far...Collapse )

Yeah... I suck at posting on weekends.  It's my only time to shop and clean and the past few weekends I've also been swamped with extra work from my ex-ex-company, which leaves little time for stuff.

Day 12 - A song from a band you hate

Hate is a strong word.... I don't hate a lot of bands.  I fully realize everyone has different tastes in music and what one person likes another may not... but I gotta say.....

Higher by Creed

Don't like that song, don't like any of their songs, always thought they were overrated.  That was a band that should just be playing half cover tunes as a bar gig... not be touring.

the list so farCollapse )

Day 11 - A song from your favorite band

Ok... not an easy one... I have a lot of band I like, and my favorite can change depending on my mood.. how recent their last album is... blah blah blah.... I decided to go with a classic (inspired by the recent VH1 Greatest countdown when the hubsy asked my what my fave Beatles song is - he's a Stones guy and and I'm a Beatles chick so it's a mixed marriage)  and without a beat I answered.......

A Day in the Life by The Beatles

Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to

Let's Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas - MST3K

C'mon.... who doesn't love a Christmas song with an action sequence??

Seriously... love this song, have it on my MP3 player year round, and it is required listening once the holiday season starts.

the list so far...Collapse )

Day 07: A song that reminds you of a certain event

So Happy I Could Die - Lady Gaga

So... to set the stage.... it was this past New Year's Eve in Vegas.  Morning.  As I usually do in Vegas, I woke up early and decided to walk over to the Bouchon Bakery stand at the Venetian to get some pastries.

Now, I was a fan of this song before then... just a great tune about how you need to enjoy the moment - life can go to shit at any moment.

I was so happy.... I love early morning on Las Vegas Blvd when it's just the runners/walkers and the bums and the air is fresh, the temps are good, there is plenty of room to move, going to get some of the BEST pastries on the planet including the cheese danish I would have as a last meal... I listened to this song on a loop both to and from the Bouchon bakery.

And then.... the matzo ball soup for lunch at TI... and the world literally went to shit as the Man and I both spent our "wonderful New Year's Eve in Vegas" - which we figured out was a once in a 7 year chance with the Man's work demands - with the worst food poisoning EVER as we spent time fighting between space to lie out on the bed and the bathroom.  The fireworks we so wanted to see?  We watched them as we were both utterly spent and near passed out on the bed.  Woo hoo.

Shit, indeed.

the list so far.....Collapse )

Day 06: A song that reminds you of somewhere

New Thing by Enuff Z Nuff

Oh... back when they were all so pretty......

I cannot even begin to count how many times I saw Enuff Z Nuff live.  I don't even remember most of them.

The club i used to hang at - The Thirsty Whale - was a place they played.  A LOT.  And two sets... under 21 and an over 21 set.  And *everyone* always went to the shows.  Didn't matter... if they were playing there, it was the place to be that night.  I have the live version of this - with every bit of choreography like Donnie doing the kissing-his-middle-fingers-flick--off - stuck in my head because I've seen it so many times... but every time I hear it, I think of Z'Nuff shows and how much fun they always were, all the great friends I'd run into (wandering into the backstage room one night to catch Vik Foxx in only a towel.... sigh...).  There are times where I still miss that place (the owner was getting old and tired of the business, and they sold it, it got torn down, and in its place is now a gas station/McDs).

the list so far...Collapse )

Heh heh.  Um.... yeah... a couple days of sickness followed by my utter NEED to finish Gail Carriger's "Blameless".... eh.  Yeah.  So we pick up where we left off.

Day 04: A song that makes you sad

Mother Love Bone - Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns

Mother Love Bone is a big fave of mine.  And so damned much talent lost because of a stupid damned drug.

so far....Collapse )
