day 21 - a song that you listen to when you’re happy

Every day I'm shuffling!

*wigglewiggle* Something Evie, Eliz and I were boogying to at the weekend :)

day 20 - a song that you listen to when you’re angry

Cue angst ridden song here:

(Found out how to embed again - doh!)

I also have a tendency to listen to System of A Down when I get really angry. This has only happened twice and it involved shouting matches with my little sister (the darling that she is).

And such.

day 19 - a song from your favorite album

Been a bit neglectful of my blog for the simple reason that I've had time away and not enough extra time to search for songs etc.

Favourite album depends on my mood. Weezer's Blue Album is up there though. So here is some tunage (tune-age?).

Apparently all of the videos I'm looking at today have lost their embed option???

day 18 - a song that you wish you heard on the radio

Fenix TX - Threesome. Or any other "punk rock" stuff; finch, hundred reasons, alkaline trio, new found glory, sugarcult... Indie seems to have come into fashion but I would like some more of these things back.

Although I'm not sure how many songs about people having a threesome actually would make it to the radio, it sure would be awesome to hear.

day 17 - a song that you hear often on the radio

Adele is everywhere and on each channel with a different song each time. It's not like she isn't talented, we've just had enough of hearing the same thing each day on the way to and from work.

day 16 - a song that you used to love but now hate

Mr Brightside. Seriously do not ever need to listen to this song again ever. I used to love Hot Fuss but down to the overplayed nature of this song I just avoid it completely.

Dear Life,

Please sort yourself out. I'm sick of this trundling along.

Love from Me.

I thought that by 25 my brain and life would be sorted. It's not. What do I want to do? What do I want to be? Why can't we just get on and get married and have babies instead of worrying about money? I would like to transform into someone else about now. Someone who has it sussed please.

This is just rambling for the sake of it. Blah.

day 15 - a song that describes you

Nerina Pallot - Real Late Starter

day 14 - a song that no one would expect you to love

Ah there are probably several of these. I seem to be observed as a meek and mild character but as you can see from my last post a bit of bling and swearing doesn't go amiss.

For example:

I ride this motherflipping beat like a tractor...

And some stuff I used to listen to and revisit now -

Dan hates them. I love them. King Adora

Their band name always reminds me of Queen Adreena, which people wouldn't believe I listened to either...

I have enjoyed doing this one :D

day 13 - a song that is a guilty pleasure

Duelling banjos

Cracks me up and I would love to be able to perform this tune with Daniel.

Can't believe I am posting this one but my attention was first drawn to it by the film 'The Proposal' and we love it! We also make up new lyrics and sometimes Dan with just say "Meems, to the window" and I finish off the rest.

Love it.

day 12 - a song from a band you hate

I can't really think of a band I hate. I am not very fond of Iron Maiden though. Dan used to listen to them but I just found it noisy and long winded! This one is only 4 minutes long though...

day 11 - a song from your favorite band

Urgh. Having a 'favourite band' was something I last had at 16. I love MUSE. Now they're big fat sellouts who aren't even performing anything from Showbiz or Origin of Symmetry any longer. I hate this so immensely that they no longer exist to me.

I am being a mega fan of The Pixies at the moment though. I'm sure this will change but here is a tune from them.

Sorry about the crap quality.

I am also in love with OK GO pretty much all the time. Get, get, get, get, get over it.

day 10 - a song that makes you fall asleep

I pondered for about a second on this one. The Eels are so utterly amazing on so many levels and this song is no exception. Plus it was in Shrek.

day 09 - a song that you can dance to

I've had a huge long think about this one, which is weird because I dance to everything. I've settled for this:

day 08 - a song that you know all the words to

Ha ha ha ha ha ha... But it's true though! Its the song that jumped to mind at least.

day 07 - a song that reminds you of a certain event

This song basically reminds me of starting Plymouth Uni because it's the only thing that cheered me up when played loud after a crappy 18th century lit. lecture or reading Oroonoko or something. That's kind of an event, right?

day 05 - a song that reminds you of someone

The Prodigy reminds me of my Dad constantly and Pink's "So what?" which weirdly makes me sad when I hear it because he sang it on the last day of our last trip to see him. I am a rubbish blubber face. Anywho, we used to blare this out on our drives in his TVR with the top down (he doesn't have a convertible anymore :().

Sunday, 3 April 2011


I am so thrilled to only have 3 shifts of 8 - 6 this week (except weds 8am - 8pm). I have Thursday off and a staff meal in the evening (which I may / may not go to) and then inset day and pudding club on Friday. Our inset is from 9am - 4pm and I have no idea what it entails yet!

Glad of a short-ish week because I've been feeling really out of sorts this week. Had a couple of naps and fell asleep sitting up in the middle of the week (at home whilst being cuddled!). Dan had to sit still for 45min before he made me go up to bed. This morning Dan took the massive tree stump to the dump with Tom and I physically couldn't get myself out of bed. Just feeling a bit sad, mixed with tiredness. Thankfully 2 cups of tea later and a shower worked their magic. Don't really know whats wrong but I only have 18 days til our time off which should hopefully sort me out!

Tonight I will be relaxing with copious amounts of tea, a lovely bath and a fresh face mask from LUSH.

day 06 - a song that reminds you of somewhere

My mum took us on holiday to Cyprus just before Evie was due to be born. I think it was to take her mind off it. All we took were clothes for warm weather but it was FREEZING and I wore the jeans I had worn on the plane for the whole week, which I never do because YUCK.

Anyway, the only album I listened to on repeat really was 'The Strokes - Is this it?' and something else I can't remember. This is a track from that album because it reminds me of Cyprus.

Incedentally, Evie was born 2 days before we went home and we went straight to Dads to see her.

I don't know what it is with my parents and going on holiday during crappy times. My dad always goes away when it's meant to be my parents wedding anniversary and they've been divorced 11 years!!

day 04 - a song that makes you sad

Please follow this link ( and click on 'music'. The song sung at my Grandad's funeral in November.

The jazzy version is below.

Makes my heart heavy. Also any Sinatra does the same. New york, new york came on the radio and I welled up, not in a sobbing way but still emotional over it.

day 03 - a song that makes you happy

This is so cheesy but I have to post it because it makes me happy inside. I know all of the words and more embarrasingly it's one of the songs I sing in the shower. My parents used to have the CD on at all times in the car and at home when I was about 8 years old when they saw Hootie live. Reminds me of simpler times :)
