Ooh. I have been tagged by the very cute Kab. Because I'm in an indulgent mood, and also because I feel too lazy to write about my weekend of Scottish debauchery, here we go. The rules are simple. Put your iPod (yes, yes, I know other MP3 players are available) on shuffle and answer each question with the random song that comes up when you click next. Stick with it - it's better than you think. The one about my parents (no 16) actually brought tears to my eyes. I have over 3000 tracks on my computer and it picked that one.
If you want to have a go, be my guest - but most importantly let me know too so that I can have a nose.
(Oh - all will become clear about the title of this post at the end)
1. IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY?
Demonique (Aim). So there.
2. WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
Stanway’s revenge – Sidewinder (Groove Armada). Okay. One for the therapist. Obviously some anger issues there. And some snakes. Angry snakes? Jesus, I’m scary.
3. WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
All the king’s horses (Joss Stone). Insert obligatory joke about stallions here.
4. HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
Sofa rockers (sofa surfers) (Kruder & Dorfmeister). True – I am very tired. Driving out to rescue a stranded MC from Oxford Circus at 12.30am on a Sunday night was not conducive to end-of-weekend relaxation time.
5. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
Lovers in the back seat (Scissor Sisters). I knew it all along.
6. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
El capitalismo foraneo (Gotan Project). Vive la revolution (and in a nod to capitalismo, vive la shoe fund).
7. WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
Twelve (Jurassic 5). I have some strange friends.
8. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR PARENTS?
I don’t wanna lose my way (hmm not sure who this is by, it’s from an old Cream dance album). I think they were more worried about this happening to me than the other way round.
9. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
Track 8 (Franz Ferdinand). I have strange friends because quite clearly I am strange too.
10. WHAT IS 2+2?
Through the window pane (Guillemots). Maths was never my forte.
11. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Into the valley (Skids). Well, if she’s off to the valley I’m coming too… armed with plenty of champagne and a few canapes.
12. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
California dreamin' (the Mamas and Papas). Um, we’re going to New York next year (Geography was never my forte either).
13. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
Me and my monkey (Robbie Willams). Couldn’t have put it better myself, Robbie. I may have to rename this blog.
14. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
In my arms (Snow Patrol). Well, ideally not in my own arms. Although it's probably an easier ambition.
15. WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
Situations (Jack Johnson). Too right.
16. WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
I miss you now (Stereophonics). Oh my God. I can’t believe that came up. I miss you too. x (A couple of weeks ago I dreamt that my father phoned me. I know it was only a dream but now every night before I go to sleep I can't help but ask him to call me again. He hasn't).
17. WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
In the ghetto (Elvis). And they say romance is dead.
18. WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
Love Foolosophy (Jamiroquai). Hmm, surely this and no 17 should be reversed?
19. WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
Don’t (Elvis). Why not? It’s fun.
20. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
Switch (TLC). But don’t tell anyone.
21. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
Bloodthirsty bastards (Dirty Pretty Things). Again, I am not making this up. Sorry friends. But the iTunes shuffle has spoken ;)
22. WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS?
Smooth criminal (Alien Ant Farm). Ooh. Told you it would all make sense eventually. Now go back to sleep.
