What Does My MP3 Say About Me?

I found the following meme online and wanted to do it. I like the ones that ask to drag out the big clunky and bulgy MP3 player. ;) I did rebel, though, and didn’t tag anyone. But feel free to do it if you want! You know you can’t resist, really.

Here are the rules:

1. Put your ZUNE/iPod/MP3 Player/etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You should enter the song that pops up, no matter how silly it sounds.
4. Tag 10 friends who might enjoy doing this, as well as the person you got this from

Saturday Scavenger Shots: Tapped

It was AlienCG’s turn to pick the word for this week, and the word he chose was “tapped”. So let’s get to it!

Tapped and Filtered

Tapped and Filtered

Here’s my Brita water filter. Just like the commercials said, it was easy to attach to the faucet. The water that flows through the tap is now filtered and ready to drink.

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

At the end of the day, when both my mental and physical resources are all tapped out, I turn to my lovely bed for a good night’s rest.

Those are my photos for this week’s word. Have a fun and energetic weekend!

Super Friday Meme

This meme from Friday5 has way too much football lingo in it for my taste, but once you get through all that, there is a question after each one. I will not be among the masses who watch the big football game this weekend. I don’t know much about it, except it’s the Steelers vs. Cardinals. I can’t even keep track of the innings in a football game or the quarters of a baseball game. Heh. I love playing stupid, especially around my mom. She’s a big sports fan and a devoted Cleveland Browns and Indians fan. It throws her when I ask her, while she’s watching a football game, which inning they’re in at the moment. A long, exasperated sigh comes out of her. Makes me smile in my soul. Muah ha ha. Strangely enough, she never invites me to watch those games with her.

1. In American football, a fumble occurs when the player carrying the ball drops it, often resulting in a great advantage for the other team. What have you recently fumbled in your own life?

– Honestly, I can’t think of anything recently. Not that it means I haven’t fumbled, but at the moment I can’t remember a recent moment. A small fumble would be when I tried to take one of those 3M hooks off of the wall that are supposedly so easy to take off, and I took some of the paint off of the wall. Eek.

2. In American football, you have thrown an interception when someone from the other team catches the ball you meant for your teammate. Who’s often an interceptor of something you intend for someone else?

-I guess my coworkers have a habit of doing that. One of the services we provide is to help a student or grad with resume advice. My coworkers and I don’t exactly share the same opinion on how a resume should look. I’ll make one for a student and my coworker will intercept and make changes that make me cringe. We’ve gone back and forth on this topic for awhile now.

3. One of the severest penalties in American football is for unsportsmanlike conduct, when a player doesn’t play according to the spirit of fair play. In what situations are you most likely to be a perpetrator of unsportsmanlike conduct?

– At work I guess….One of my coworkers, someone who is not really in charge of me, is very bossy. He’ll bark out some orders and I rebel by not doing them. Childish and unsportsmanlike, but I can still sleep at night. What does that mean? Also, when I play a real sport I take it too personally if I suck at the sport.

4. In American football, the concept of running low-risk plays that consistently gain a few yards at a time is called “moving the chains,” while the concept of going after huge gains with higher-risk plays is called the “vertical game.” In your personal life, are you more of a moving-the-chains player or a vertical-game player?

– I’m a “moving-the-chains” player. Sometimes, only sometimes, it is good to be cautious.

5. Sometimes in American football, the quarterback will, at the last moment, change his or her mind about the intended play, either to prevent what is likely to be a failure or to take advantage of a vulnerability in the other team. The method used in this play-change is often “calling an audible.” In what way have you recently called an audible in your life?

– I’m sure I’ve had a few moments in my life where I’ve played an audible. Just can’t think of one particular moment right now.

How Many Times…

…must I hear that stupid song from Nickelback?? I should be more specific…It’s not actually Nickelback, but the the lead singer and Santana. I’m tired of it, but my station seems to love playing it every dang day! What’s up with that?

I’m done ranting.

The End

Okay, well I was not hit by tons of snow from a plow, but this is the thought that popped into my head and amused me when I got home from work yesterday. We were released early (at 1pm) and evening classes were canceled due to the snow being dumped on us. On my way home, the streets were still horrible and almost everyone had the sense to go slower. I got stuck in the snow once, but followed the advice given on the Weather Channel’s website to turn the wheels left and right. Eureka, it worked! Later on down the way, a car came out of nowhere and I put on my brakes. My car swerved in the other car’s direction, but I managed to turn away without hitting him. After some brief cursing about the weather, I composed myself again and the rest of the trip home was terror-free.

When I turn into my apartment complex during days like that, I feel safe and sound. Then I realize that, unless I’m parked (and even then ya never know), things can still happen because people don’t pay attention to where they’re going or how fast. I’ve avoided a few accidents by braking while a person would speed through their stop signs. Anyway, I was home but had to put on some mushy snow brakes to dodge another car. Eventually I was able to park and turn off my car. Whew! That’s when I imagined the snow plow finding me and providing one last obstacle on my way to my apartment on foot.
