dd, thinking of you edition

I associate music with a lot of different things - places, certain events in life, and people. I bet you didn't know that I associate most of you with certain songs. Here we go!

Dad - Anything by Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, and "Alley Cat" (b/c it is the one song you would play on the piano and I asked you how you knew to do the part at the end w/ the triplets and you said you made it up. Once I knew how to read music I looked at the sheet music and discovered you lied)

Mom - "Mary Did You Know," Clay Aiken's version (b/c you really like it...and so I bought you piano music...which you forgot that I did and so you were going to buy more...until I found the sheet music I had previously purchased)

Lanson - The entire album of Steve Miller Band's greatest hits (b/c I would listen to it and cry because I missed you when you were on your mission).

Diana - "All for You" by Janet Jackson (b/c it played everywhere when we were in Europe)

Kim - "The Sign" by Ace of Bace* (b/c when it came out you told me to stop singing it because it was a bad song and I'm still trying to figure out why...)

Mark - "Hotel California" by the Eagles (b/c you told me once it was your favorite song)

Jill - "Invisible" by Clay Aiken** (b/c we looked it up on youtube while driving in San Francisco...and you borrowed my barbies to make a music video of it)

Jesselah - "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus (b/c it may or may not be the most played on your itunes)

Beth - any song by Michael Jackson. (b/c you heart him)

Kelli & Emily - "Everytime we Touch" by Cascada (b/c we listened to it a lot, and rolled around in blue foam while it was playing...that sounds bad but it's not)

Jenn & Marcelle - "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion (b/c of your amazing interpretive dance)

Jennie, Nina & Rose-Ellen - "Hey Ya!" by Outkast (b/c it defined our Freshman year together)

For those of you not yet on the list - just you wait. With time you will be added.

*This is a terrible music video.
**I had no idea that Clay Aiken was so present in my life.

dd, what does it say about me edition

What does it say about me when...

...Grey's Anatomy has made me cry more than any other television show?

...I'm already halfway done with my Christmas shopping?

...sometimes I prefer spending time by myself rather than with others?

...while reflecting on the best part(s) of my day it usually ends up being related to food?

...I sometimes wear blankets like skirts around the house?

Hopefully nothing.

dd, behind on life edition

Sometimes I am behind on life.

-Dishes? Nope, don't feel like it.
-Making the bed? Not at all this week.
-Hanging up clothes? Haven't quite gotten there yet.
-Gone through mail? Not high on my priority list.
-Gym? Well I'm currently in my gym clothes but I doubt I'll make it out of bed...
-Being social? Nice try.

Can't be perfect all the time, right?
