Song Meme -- Or Not

I'm back home, and I want to write a bit about my travels. While I'm unpacking and seeing which pictures I can actually show to decent folk, and which stories I can actually tell without getting anyone arrested/disbarred/excommunicated/divorced/suspended/pissed-at-me, here's a little something you might want to play with. I picked this up at Plum's place a while back, and since it was "all Aaron, all the time" here last week, I thought I'd whip it out as a grand finale to the Nevilleness. (Plus, it's fun to say, "whip it out.") It's sort of a "meme," I think, but I'm a techno-dunce, so what do I know?

Copy it and post your own. You know, if you want.

Step 1) Pick a band or singer
Step 2) Answer the following questions about yourself, using only song titles from that band or singer
Step 3) Post

Band/Singer of choice: Aaron Neville

Are you male or female? "Sister Rosa"
Describe yourself: "Betcha by Golly, Wow"
How do some people feel about you? "You Never Can Tell"
How do you feel about yourself? "Try (a Little Harder)"
Describe your worst ex: "Ain't No Way"
Describe your current significant other: "Don't Take Away My Heaven"
Describe what you want to be: "Bridge Over Troubled Water"
Describe your current mood: "Down into Muddy Water"
Describe your friends: "These Foolish Things"
Share a few words of wisdom: "Show Some Emotion"

There you go. And I'll give Aaron a rest now, I promise;)

Back in a bit to give the highlights and lowlights of my little trip.

14 heads are better than one . . .

stringmuse, you Lost Woman, you. I must tell you that your description of your current significant other will make you the envy of many of the women (and at least one of the men -- hey, greenie!) who visit here. Life's Been Good reminds me of an old story I can blog about ... thanks!

hey, mrtl, my damn trip was not a bit relaxing, but it was a tiny bit fun; I'm having a tough time getting the fun to come out my fingers so y'all can read it, but hopefully soon:)

Welcome back, Susie! We missed you!

I don't have time for the meme right now, but here's a musical "welcome back" for ya:


Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back to that same old place that you laughed about.
Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they’re turned around.

Who’d have thought they’d lead ya (Who’d have thought they’d lead ya)
Back here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)

Yeah we tease you a lot cause we’ve got you on the spot,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

lawbrat, hey! I must confess, I made a GRAVE error when I told some friends and family about this blog. It severely limits the stories one can tell...
