a meme and stuff

I don't have much of anything to write about, but here is a meme I saw on someone's blog and since Tony got me a 30G Black iPod for christmas I thought I would do this. The iPod has been great for knitting, I have been listening to books on cds. Fabulous. I just finished listening to the 5th Harry Potter book (all 23 cds!) and am going to move onto the 6th book. Of course I've already read these, but I find it entertaining all the same.

Directions: Open iTunes/iPod or Windows Media Player to answer the following. Go to your library. Answer, no matter how embarrasing it is.

How many songs: 1609 (not completely accurate since I have songs on my iPod that I don't have in my iTunes since I put them on from my parents computer)

Sort by song title...
First song: (Nothing's Gonna) Turn Me Off (of you) by Screeching Weasel

Last song: Your the Enemy by Screeching Weasel

Sort by time...
Shortest Song: This isn't actually a song its [Data Track] by Pennywise
Longest Song: The longest isn't a song either its part of a Criminal Law review (see how amazing iPods can be! I can review at any time!)

Sort by album...
First Song: Faith Alone by Bad Religion from the All Ages Album
Last Song: Born Free by the Bouncing Souls from Warped Tour 2003

First 5 songs that come up on Shuffle...
1. Feeding the Fire, No Use For A Name
2. Molly Neuman, The Queers
3. Heart of Glass, Blondie
4. Judgement Day, Pennywise
5. My Favorite Mistake, Weston


1. "Sex"--How many songs come up: 6

2. "Death"--How many songs come up: 18

3. "Love"--How many songs come up: 45

4. "You"--How many songs come up: 144

5. "love" and "you" --How many songs come up: 9

This was weird to do. I realized so many of the songs and artists that came up are groups that I have loved since high school. Am I really this boring? My sister was making fun of me the other day for not liking things to change...I guess I need to widen my taste in music..

Purse from Handknit Holidays is blocking. I only did 4 repeats and smaller needles so definately not as huge as the one in the book. I bought fabric for lining and I need to get on that do some sewing!

What do I knit now? I'm feeling at a bit of a loss...

I'm listening to all the Harry Potter books, too! I'm listening to them in the car, though. I started before the holidays, and even after a drive to and from Iowa, I'm only just finishing up the last disc of the fourth book. But it really makes the drive go so much faster.
