This is not a description at all of Dirt Nite.

So Facebook emailed me, although it was really Elayne in the guise of the Facebook. And it was one of those taggy bloggy barfy sharey things. Which meant opening Facebook which kind of freaks me out. But the idea was, you write down 15 songs that your ipod plays on it's shuffle. Which I thought was sort of cool, because my ipod loves me and it always knows what songs I want to hear. Because who doesn't love Christmas music!

So I wrote down every single song it played on the way to work the other day. Which was extra exciting because writing during driving! I love this! I do this all the time because I think of things then I write them down in my notebook on the passenger seat and then it's an adventure to try to read what seemed so brilliant at the time and is scrawled sideways across the page.

You may not want to drive near me.

On the same page in my reporter's notebook it also said:

Meth lady smoking with a shih tzu.

These are the important types of things I write down. On the way to work, I stopped at the beach and I talked to a very methy looking lady that had a shihtzu with her and she was having a smoke and speaking in tongues. She demanded, DEMANDED, not asked, to know the exact ages of all my dogs. I told her and went on my way and hoped she didn't break into my car. I don't think people with shihtzu's break into cars usually, but there was just something about her.

So here's a play list of one drive to work that ipod picked for me the other day. Sort of like when you look at someone's bookshelf when you go over to their house. I'm not sure what my songs say about me. You tell me. Then you write down yours. Send them to Elayne on Facebook. Or just stick em here and I'll judge your book by your cover for you.

Does this mean I have to buy an ipod?

Facebook freaks me out too, I only went over there because somebody tagged me and my email told me about it.

Note to self: Add to the instructions that you're not supposed to play while driving.

(1) I do the same thing with a notepad on the passenger seat! Let's not both drive on the same road at the same time.
(2) OK, there is exactly one song on there that I know: Chestnuts. And there are 4 other artists whose names I know, but not the songs.
What does this say about me? Hm. I think that most of my songs WOULD be old chestnuts. I don't have an ipod, either, Mary, so we can be iless together.

Ipod is one of my best friends. Why, just today it decided I only liked disco hits and Judy Garland and Camper Van Beethoven. Ipod can also look at spoons and they bend. Life would not be the same without Ipod.
