Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Leaving On a Jet Plane - MEME

I snagged this from someone on Facebook. I have rather eclectic musical tastes, and was curious what would pop up. It made me giggle -- pretty hard by times -- so I thought I'd repost it here. To be honest, I advanced everytime I hit a Christmas tune -- and that happened fairly often. I'm rather perplexed Blue Rodeo only turned up only once!

Instructions:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc) 2. Put it on shuffle 3. Press play 4. For the first question, type the song that's playing 5. When you go to a new question, press the next button TWICE 6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...just type it in!
