The G-Man and Dorky Dad Got Me

G-man tagged me to list 7 habits and 7 favorite songs. I was actually tagged by Dorky Dad to tell 10 things about myself earlier last week. DD made his interesting by adding a few items that weren't really true and challenging the reader to determine which they were. So I'm going to combine the two tags.

10 Habits....which ones do YOU think are real and which ones are not?

1. Sleeping nekkid. I hate when pajamas get tangled up in the sheets. No jammies, no problem.

2. Ignoring official meme rules.

3. Planning coups of small countries.

4. Spending a small fortune on manicures.

5. As a kid I used to stockpile my already chewed gum (I was only allowed a half a piece of Trident for crying out loud!) so I could combine it and actually have a chewable hunk of gum. I am so not telling you where I hid my stockpile.

6. Falling asleep on the couch.

7. Procrastinating.

8. Reading the encyclopedia and dictionary.

9. Listing good candidates for my cabinet when I overthrow Vanuatu.

10. Celebrating obscure and made up holidays like Festivus, Talk Like a Pirate Day, and National Masturbation Month (a holiday worthy of an entire month!)

10 Songs...I actually do love all of these, no guesswork here.

1. Jingo by Santana. I cannot hear this and not just go right into my own space and dance myself into oblivion. This version features Eric Clapton along with Carlos Santana so bonus!

2. When the Rain Comes by Third Day. What a friend does when it's most needed.

3. Arms of a Woman by Amos Lee.

4. Mudfootball by Jack Johnson. Delightful whimsy and good to dance to.

5. Gypsy and Landslide by Stevie Nicks. They are tied and for me will be forever linked as one. That's all I'm gonna say.

6. Kiss by Prince. I've said it before. I'll say it again. I don't care what some internet quiz says...this is my stripper song.

7. What Am I to You? by Norah Jones

8. Love Shack by the B-52s. Total fun, what can I say?

9. Dream a Little Dream of Me by Cass Elliot. I've loved this song from the first time I heard it when I was about 13 and swiped my mom's The Mamas & the Papas album. I think this is just such a simple and lovely song and only Mama Cass can do it justice. Love it!

10. Trumpet Voluntary by Henry Purcell because it was the first piece Diana ever played as a solo, which is tied by Fur Elise by Beethoven because it is the first classical piece of music Calypso performed as a solo when she was learning piano.

Yes, if you want to get all technical on me I have 12 songs listed. You'll live. I have 1064 songs on my iPod for crying out loud. It's a miracle I narrowed it down this much. Besides, i already told you I habitually break meme rules.

I love Talk Like A Pirate Day!!
As A teen, I celebrated National Masturbation Year!!

Love Shack was almost one of my finalists......

" Knock a little louder sugar"!

As always a masterful list....and you've proven once again that you are the Queen of Players!!!!
Thanks Trini xoxox

The Zombieslayer said...

For the record, any song by Prince is a stripper song. He's the Man.

I actually like that Mamas and the Papas song.

Now to guess which habits are real:
1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10

Okay. I'm ready for my grade.

Logophile said...

3, 4, and 9 are my vote for the fake habits
and would listen to those songs anytime.
Trumpets Voluntary was played at my wedding, Im rather fond of it myself.

G-Man said...

BTW, I think that only #4 is fake..
I happen to know that you have had your eyes on Vanuatu for years...
...and the gum?

MONA said...

Wow So many of my favourite songs up there! Thanks for the videos!!

barman said...

If I had to guess I would say #4 is suspicious and so is #9. I mean who writes stuff like that down. You get caught with a list like that and you might get strung up. I think you just doing that list in your head.

Love the songs, thanks for the links. I look forward to getting home later today so I can listen to them.

I know you don't spend money on pedicures. Cool songs, though the jury's out on Santana.

SignGurl said...

I cannot sleep with clothing on. I hate waking up with it wrapped around my neck.

Your song choices are stellar!

We share a love for Prince.

Lizard Princess said...

I think I need to link you cause I certainly come here enough!

Great list! I was tagged recently too, now I need to put my thinking cap on.


James Goodman said...

oh, I probably won't step up to do the meme, but I will do a little music related post. :D

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

Pedant Extraordinaire said...

Oops. Trumpet voluntary written by Jeremiah Clark.
(BTW word verification was Vmliszhc, he's a very good friend of mine from Krakow)

Excuse me now. I need to go and masturbate for May.
