So, here's how it works:

2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
s.6. Don't lie and try to pretend your cool... and a lot of the songs fit with the setting

Opening Credits:
My Deja Vu by Ace of Base (so the movie of my life will be...wait, I'm already lost. Will I have to get naked in this movie?)

Waking Up:
Going Under by Evanescence (already not a good start).

First Day At School:
Nowadays/Hot Honey Rag, sung by Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger in Chicago (so I'ma gonna sleep with a bunch of guys in school?)

Falling In Love:
Hedigean's Fancy from Celtic Quest. (A sprightly fiddle tune. This clearly means I'll fall in love in Scotland. Things are looking up!)

Fight Song:
No Big Thing by Lit. (I can see myself breaking a few pool cues over someone's head to this song. Though it might be better for a breaking up song.)

Breaking Up:
Ready for the Good Times by Shakira (Oh, honey. Aren't we all?)

Prom night:
I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You by Marc Antony and Tina Arena in The Mask of Zorro (okay, maybe moving a little fast for prom night, but hey, what can I say? I must be irresistible).

Oh Father by Madonna (my movie is about abuse, apparently. It's a Lifetime movie).

Celebration (a very happy, smiley, upbeat instrumental. So I'll be one of those happy, smiley, upbeat crazy people).

Young and Proud by Ace of Base (for driving when I'm angry...? Or something...?)

This is awesome! It's a guy (sorta goofy, but cute) singing a song - "Big Girls, You Are Beautiful." Now if I only looked as good in a corset as those ladies following him!

I cannot stand that song "Lips of an Angel" by Hinder. It wasn't always this way...there was a time when I could tolerate it, even thought it was pretty the first dozen times I heard it (even with the stupid emo cheatin' lyrics) but then they played it on the radio OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER again until I just got. SICK. of. it.

So someone please tell me, PLEASE, why Jack Ingram saw fit to do a cover of the song? PLEASE tell me why, when I switched from the popular music station and one its cookie-cutter songs this afternoon to the country music station, I was suddenly subjected to LIPS OF A FREAKIN' ANGEL sung with a country twang??

I love country music. Hell, I even like some of the pop music out there. BUT I HATE THAT SONG WITH THE FIERY PASSION OF A THOUSAND SUNS AND IT MUST BUUUUUUUURN.

Hm. Maybe this is what I get for working at a radio station.
kokopellinelli: (Brilliant!)
Yeah. So, Grand Dérangement, the music group mom took me to see last night?


There was a drummer, a guitarist, a keyboardist, a fiddler, a bassist that was also a stepdancer, and two more stepdancers. Actually, the only one of the group who didn't do any stepdancing was the guitarist.

I will make a bed that most of the kids in the audience last night want to be stepdancers now...I saw a bunch of the smaller ones popcorning out of their seat when the dancers came on stage. Hell, I want to be a stepdancer, too, and I have a feeling that 30 seconds of what they were doing onstage and I'd have to be carried out in a stretcher.

After about their second or third song, mom turned to me and said, "I want to be their groupie." Yes, mother. Me too.

Supposedly, you're able to listen to songs at their website, but the listening thingie isn't working for me right now. However, if it works for any of you, I'd recommend taking a listen, definitely.

Okay, so...I was supposed to be a cafeteria lady from 11-2:15 today. Then the head of cafeteria ladies called this morning and said she didn't need me after all. YAY, free day.

About 20 minutes later, Beth from the elementary school called and asked if I could come in from 11-2:15 to sub for one of the music teachers. So I did.

It was okay. I had Kindergarten from 11:15-11:45. At one point, when they were being too loud, I sat them down, told them they needed to calm down a little before we did the next song, and reminded them that they needed to raise their hands if they wanted to say something. One little girl shot her hand into the air.

Me: Yes.

Little Girl: You shouldn't play with guns or touch a gun because it might go off and shoot a bullet and you might kill someone so you shouldn't touch a gun and you should tell a grown-up.

Me: *blink*

Little Boy: YEAH you should tell a grown up and stop drop and roll!

Me: *blink blink* Um...yes. You shouldn't touch guns. Very good.

Turns out, they'd just had a couple cops in to talk to them about gun safety.

Then I had an hour for lunch. I ate my granola bar in like 5 minutes, then sat around being bored until 12:45. Then I had a couple 4th grade classes. The first one was sort of loud and annoying, the second one was fine.

Then I had ANOTHER break, for half an hour, then my last class was 5th grade band. We went through some pages they'd already done before, and made them do each song twice (they were short songs), and told them that every time they groaned about my song choice, I'd make them do that song again. They got the hang of it pretty quick.

Tomorrow, I go in at noon to sub. I'm not sure what grade it's for.

I'm a little nervous about Friday. I leave home at about 7:30. I sub for a 2nd grade class. It's an early release day, so school gets out at 1:50. By the time I get home at around 2:30, Summer will have been alone in the house for 7 hours. THEN, at 4:30, I leave home AGAIN and go to do a port cruise and I probably won't be home until at LEAST 8:30. But I'm really really nervous about Friday morning. *sigh*

I had a dream last night of which I don't remember much.

I was subbing in a music class, which wouldn't have been bad, but I didn't really know what we were supposed to do. Luckily, the kids were all pretty well behaved and told me they'd been singing songs from a songbook, so I got it out, we read through a song and then sang it along with the music on the CD.

At that point, the regular teacher, who was just about to leave on vacation, came in to see how we were doing. I told him we'd just sung a song and I was looking for another, and he singled out one of the boys and told him to sing the song for him, without music. He also wasn't allowed to read the words from his book. The teacher had apparently expected him to memorize them with a couple read-throughs. When the boy only remembered the first few words, the teacher started CHOKING him and yelling that he was a loser.

At first, I just stood there, staring. Then my brains kicked in and I ran over, karate-chopped the teacher's hand away from the boy's throat, and said "Get out GET OUT!" And I basically chased the teacher out of the room.

THEN, apparently, I was an outlaw, and there was a house with blood on the floors, and I could swim underwater, and then there was this guy who I'm guessing was a bodyguard (and he was kinda hot) but for some reason, not so versed in the art of camoflage. As we were underwater, I was wearing greenish-gray paint and scales and he was just wearing his white skin, and there were boats passing overhead. Every time one passed over looking for us, I'd have to basically get over him so his skin wasn't visible and we blended in with the seabed.

Had a sub job today, and so did Keels. They called us on Monday morning and asked if we would be interested in subbing today, and offered Keels a half day with a special needs class, and me a half day with a Kindergarten music class. This morning, they called again and asked Keels if she would mind making it a full day special needs class. She isn't home yet.

Otherwise, not much to report. We watched a Disney Sing Along Songs tape in my 3 Kindergarten classes, and then I came home and showered. Go me.
