I've been tagged

I've been tagged by my Canadian blogger-buddy, Effie. Here's how it goes:

Here are the rules:
1. get tagged

2. list five things that have not been revealed on your blog
3. tag five others (tag yourself if you feel the urge)

It's kinda hard to come up with five things I haven't already talked about that I would reveal here.

  1. I get out of ideas for my blog, sometimes, but have never seriously decided to quit blogging.
  2. Ichabod's grandfather died a month after my mother died. I e-mailed some of you, but never felt up to making a post about it. I really should write about Bob. He was a good artist and I should share him with you guys.
  3. I would like to visit Washington DC some day. Just haven't gotten to it yet.
  4. Ichabod just got a pair of day-glo orange Converse sneakers.
  5. One time when I was singing karaoke, totally sober, I chose a song. Then, after it started, I realized that I only remembered the tune to the chorus. I pretended the mike wasn't working. I mouthed the words, but no sound came out. The guys working the show were scratching their heads trying to figure it out. I never told them.

    Anyone who wants to tag him/herself, go for it.

Best darn song with "day-glo" in it:

Little Miss S.

Shooting up junk in the bathroom
Makin it with punks on the floor
Livin the scene of her limmisine
Little Miss S. in a mini dress
Living it up to die
In a blink of the public eye

Day-glo point in an electric chair
Electric dye in her lovers hair
A pretty sight in the middle of the night
Made up for everyone to see
Swinging on the branch of a broken family tree

You got a lot of living to do without (x2)
You got a lot of living to do without life

The village idiots in her bed
Never cared that her eyes were red
Never cared that her eyes were dead
In the hours that her face was alive
It was the thing just to be by her side

You got a lot of living to do without (x2)
You got a lot of living to do without life

Hey, alright

You got a lot of living to do without (x2)
You got a lot of living to do without life

You got a lot of living to do without (x2)
You got a lot of living to do without life

Mr B, I never knew Edie Brickell did a song with day-glo in it.

I was too lazeee to type them thar lyrics from memory and as you can see, the cut and paste job from a website allowed "limmisine" to creep into your blog.


Damn good song though.

Ok, I hate to reveal my stupidity here, but what does it mean to be "tagged"? Cuz I'd like to play.

Mr B, interesting lyrics, including limmisine. :-)

Ha ha, thanks, Danielle. It wasn't a conscious effort, at first. I was just standing there feeling baffled and mouthing words. Then people started to try to fix the mike. Tee hee

Tweets, well, I sing fairly well. But not at all if I can't remember the stinkin' tune.

htgt, I don't like to tag people, in case they don't feel like doing it. But, in this case, "Tag, you're it!" Let us know when yours is done.

Man, I don't know if there are five things I haven't said on my blog that I would actually publish. I've tried to avoid talk of my bathroom habits and sex life (let's all just pretend I have one), and don't think I will be going there anytime soon. Not unless there's cash in it!

Bucky, been any, um, snow in your life lately? wink, wink, nudge, nudge

Effie, I lucked into that one.

See? I knew it wasn't just me! Although I don't karaoke, I have a habit of thinking I know a song, only to try to sing it in the car when it's NOT playing, and find that I only know the hook, or the bridge, or something but not the whole song. Frustrating!! But you handled it well -- that's hilarious!!

I'd love to hear more about Bob, whenever you feel like sharing.

htgt, I've gotta be gone most of the day. But I will stop back and see your list.

Shari, you're back on the internets! Thanks. I will do a post on Bob one of these days. I should, at least, post some of his paintings.

JDR, I chuckle about that now, too. Wasn't quite as funny to me when I was up there. :-)

For some reason I missed quite a few on my list here. So Happy Easter Squirrel to you.

Nina, hi! Happy Easter to you, too.

Tweets, thanks for stopping by and wishing me a happy Easter, too.

If I tried to karaoke, I think they would deliberately turn the mic off on me! I sing well in my truck, with the CD player drowning me out. ;)

Kranki, I will have to make sure I get more pictures of his paintings and drawings. Then I'd love to tell everyone about him. You'd have loved him, guaranteed!

tshsmom, are you sure? So many people think they don't sing as well as they really do. Or they could just use a few lessons. I started singing, literally, on my father's knee when I was two. Both my mother's and father's families loved music and had talent. I lucked into some of that. But, please, continue to sing in your truck. Singing is good for the soul.

Hmmm. I don't think there are 5 things about me that I haven't already posed on my blog.

I cant carry a tune but on Sunday when we went to church J said I did fairly well. I dont know about that.Maybe because like tshsmom no one else could hear me. LOL..

LOL, that's about how I'd sing karaoke...just stand up there and slap the mike and cuss.

Nick, you do tell us everything, don't you? And we love you for it.

Tweets, sometimes it helps to blend in with the crowd. :-)

Milkmaid, hi! Tee hee, maybe more people will try karaoke now that they have this helpful hint.
