‘Cause ilmomof3 said I should...

1. What are the total amount of music files on your computer?

I must now confess to my technological backwardness. Technologically speaking, I’m still somewhere in the 1980s. I don’t have any music files on my computer. That’s right. None. Zero. Nada. I’m the one person in the contiguous States that does not own an Ipod. Don’t look at me that way! I’m making progress. I bought a DVD player last year!

2. The last CD you bought was?
“Corazón Abierto” by Alejandro Fernandez and “Heavier Things” by John Mayer – I bought them at the same time.

3. What is the song you last listened to before this message?
Some country song that I don’t know the name of. To my great consternation, the only radio stations that I seem to be able to find here in Prescott are country stations. Not that I don’t like country music. I do. Well, some of it. But, there seems to be nothing else coming over the radio waves here in my little corner of northern Arizona. It’s a bit disturbing.

4. Write down five songs you often listen to, or that mean a lot to you.

“More Than a Feeling” by Boston – because it reminds me of high school and dark theater stages and very sexy stage managers.
“Strong Enough” by Sheryl Crow – because this, apparently, is the theme song to my love life.
“Se me olvidó otra vez” by Maná – because I’m a glutton for punishment.
“Beautiful Day” by U2 – because it reminds me of law school.
“Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash – because it brings Tom to mind.
“Nací para amarte” by Alejandro Fernandez – because it was once a dream.
“You’re My Favorite Mistake” by Sheryl Crow – because we all have one of those.
“Smooth” by Santana with Rob Thomas – because it’s the song of a hot bodies on a tightly packed dance floor.
“Building a Mystery” by Sarah McLachlan – because it’s part of my past.
“Give Me One Reason” by Tracy Chapman – because I was there and didn’t get the answer I was looking for.
“You Learn” by Alanis Morissette – because it’s the story of my life.

How in the hell am I supposed to keep this list to five?!?! I’ll stop here otherwise I’ll be at this all evening.

5. Who are you gonna pass this stick to (three persons and why)?

might-could because I know her music selections will bring a smile to my face.
pandionna because she’s smart and vibrant and I’m sure her music choices will reflect that.
citlalli31 because I’m sure here music selections will be different than the rest and well worth a listen.

Listening To: people that sing worse than I do on "American Idol"
Reading: "Paganism: An Introduction to Earth Based Religions"
Feeling: nostalgic
