Raspberry.

Facebook makes it all too easy.

that didn’t go from a blessing to a curse…
What product did you buy that didn’t do what it claimed?

I am thinking there’s got to be something… or multiple somethings, but I can’t think of anything off the top of my head.

What do you do that is considered “Green”?

I try to avoid printing excess things if I can help it, I re-use my desk calendars as scrap paper to make my to-do lists on… I try to use reusable shopping bags. In the grand scheme of things – probably not ENOUGH… but at least I try and do something.

I tend to flop around a lot in my sleep – I’ll wake up twisted in my sheets and I honestly don’t know what the heck I do to end up that way.  When I share a bed I try extra hard to not move so I am rarely comfortable and rarely get a decent nights sleep.

Not usually.

What was the last promise you made?

I can’t recall.

What is a funny memory of a parent, sibling or guardian in your childhood home?

Once my brother drew a triangle on the wall outside of his bedroom and told me “This is a sign. It means no girls allowed”  It stayed on the wall until it got painted again. I kind of wish that my dad didn’t paint over it because it was just so funny.

6. DEVO: WHIP IT … “Crack that whip, give the past the slip, step on a crack, break your momma’s back”…

uhhh.  I used to like the taste of dimetapp as a kid – but they changed the formula.  But not to the point that I’d take it if i wasn’t sick. I’m also a fan of Nyquil’s powers to knock me out when I’m feeling icky.

11. THE GO-GOS: OUR LIPS ARE SEALED … “Can you hear them? They talk about us, telling lies, well that’s no surprise” …
What is the worst lie or rumor anyone ever told about you?

Oh man. Let’s just.. not even get in to that. I don’t want to think about it – there are many but remembering brings me back to a bad place.

12. DURAN DURAN: HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF … “In touch with the ground, I’m on the hunt I’m after you, smell like I sound, I’m lost in a crowd, And I’m hungry like the wolf” …
What food do you crave so much you would brave a long line or travel a far distance to get it?

I love the dipping sauce of the sweet potato fries at Bobby’s Burger Palace at the casino.  I’ve never gone JUST for the fries, but I do tend to make it a habit to stop there when I go. (Though I havent stopped the last couple times because I overdid it the time before lol)

13. JOAN JETT: I LOVE ROCK N ROLL … “I saw him dancing there by the record machine. I knew he must have been about 17. The beat was goin’ strong, playin’ my favorite song” …
What was the last song you paid to hear on a jukebox?

Whenever I see a Hanson song on a jukebox I have to play it. Although the last time I saw a jukebox was probably several years ago.  I’d love to get a jukebox when I have my own place that I can load all (or most) of my CDs in… or even somehow hook my iTunes up to it.  That would be cool!

Rock N Roll Fridays

The site where I used to get my Rock N Roll Friday memes has decided that they are done and will no longer be posting the questionnaires.   Such a bummer!  I am going to try and go back through their archives to see if there are any that I had not previously done and I will try to do those every Friday until they run out.  It was one of my favorite memes and I am sad to see it go, but I understand that everyone has to move on at some point!

If you happen to come across any music-related day of the week memes – please let me know 😉

5. Out In The Country: “Before the breathin’ air is gone, Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime, Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone and take back somethin’ worth rememberin’”

When was the last time you took back something worth rememberin?
I don’t know.

6. Family of Man: “Memories replacing the loves that we’ve lost, Burning our bridges as soon as they’re crossed, Factories built where the rivers ran, And time running out for the family of man”

Since the nuclear plant tragedy in Japan, what alternate power source would you prefer?
Wind? Solar? Water?

7. Shambala: “Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind, On the road to Shambala,
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind, On the road to Shambala”

Where have you been where everyone is overly friendly?
The south

8. Eli’s Comin: “Well you better hide your heart, your loving heart
Eli’s a-comin’ and the cards say… a broken heart”

What good advice did you ignore and then later regret?
Nothing that I can think of off hand.

9. One
: “It’s just no good anymore since she went away, Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday”

Can you make up a rhyme?
No. Poetry in school was one of the things I dreaded because anything I wrote came out ridiculous!


10. Never Been To Spain: “Well I never been to heaven, But I been to Oklahoma
Well they tell me I was born there, But I really don’t remember”

What is your earliest memory as a child/baby?
Being in my crib and angry that I was in there. My mom is convinced I made this up… but I can describe the room and everything is accurate so… 

11. Mama Told Me Not To Come: “Just open the window brother, and let me catch my breath”

Where was the last really stinky place you were in?
New York City, I guess

12. One Man Band: “Here I am, take my hand, I’m your man, Baby, let me be your one man band”

Do you play an instrument?
No. I tried to play the clarinet in middle school but that didn’t go so well and I haven’t attempted anything else since


13. Liar: “You’ve taken my life, so take my soul, That’s what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long, As you want me to, I won’t move away
Ain’t that what you said?”

When was the last time you were lied to?
I feel like I am lied to a lot, but I might just be paranoid.  Years of being bullied have really messed with me so I have major trust issues

5. Broken Arrow – The streets were lined for the wedding parade, 
The Queen wore the white gloves, the county of song,

Protected her King from the sun rays of dawn. 
They married for peace and were gone.

But you’re from my side of town
And I miss you 
Who are you missing today?
No one.
