I try my best...

to look like a goob at every possible occasion...

This is my "why are you looking at me?" face. Can't you tell?

That is a Girl Scout Cookie on my forehead - shortbread, if you're wondering.

Ok - there is a story behind the random goggles. My rheumatologist told me that I need to do more stretching activity to keep my joints lubricated, or something, like yoga, walking, etc. When I mentioned that I was thinking of joining the YMCA so I could swim, she got very excited and said that was the best exercise I could do. So, I joined the YMCA today, which, of course, spawned a whole day's worth of fan-girl-ness and all the STUFF I "needed" to get started. This included these super-cute pink goggles, which I never would have donned for the camera if it weren't for Josh.

Happy birthday, Josh.

30 songs was reading a little Jennsylvania, and I thought this was a cute idea. The notion is to provide 30 random songs from your ipod; but since i don't have an ipod, you get 30 random songs from my Sansa! For joy! (And I'm totally going to number the list to keep track because I have 3+ hours left at work to get this bitch out. Woo!)

  1. Sir-Mix-A-Lot / Baby Got Back. This song makes me bouncy. I think it is because I got back. :)
  2. Carole King / Smackwater Jack. I actually have this on my Sansa twice - once in "full color" and once in acoustic. I can't not sing when this song comes on, loud and in full force.
  3. Kajagoogoo / Too Shy. What can I say? I'm a child of the 80's. I was listening to random stuff in utero. In other random tidbits, this song has been stuck in my head all morning.
  4. Sarah Maclachlan / Adia. I still never know if I've spelled the woman's name right; but when I discovered her voice, I was atwitter. This particular song helps me find a still place.
  5. George Michael / Father Figure. I heart me some George Michael - even some WHAM! And I love, love, love the new Seether cover. WHAM!
  6. Aerosmith / Young Lust. I have been an Aero-fan since I first knew what music was. This is one of my all-time favorites.
  7. Prince & the NPG / 7. I heart me some Prince. Tiny little guy with ten-ton sex drive? BRING IT. Belly dancing girl with a sword on her head? LOVE IT. (Isn't it fortunate that I thought of this one at 7?)
  8. Matchbox Twenty / 3AM. Don't care what you say. I dig the Rob Thomas.
  9. No Doubt / Just A Girl. I didn't like this song when it came out (I was in high school at the time, and it was ALL the rage...I think I was trying to rebel). It has grown on me through the years, though; and now, I rock it out all loud. (In my head, though, when I'm at work.)
  10. Tears for Fears / Sewings the Seeds of Love. I still love this song. Couldjabe couldjabe squeaky clean?
  11. Salt n Pepa / Let's Talk About Sex. I can't hear this song without thinking about the first time I saw a condom, which was in elementary school behind the kindergarten building.
  12. Cyndi Lauper / Time After Time. My husband LOVES this song. I like it more because of his affection for it. He will get all girly and sing it every single time.
  13. Dixie Chicks / Landslide. I've got to say: I almost like this version better than the original. The instruments lend themselves very well to the song.
  14. En Vogue / Never Gonna Get It. When I was in the sixth grade, my clique devised a dance routine to this song. It was the "it" thing to do. Of course, I cannot dance; and thus, I was the radio button pusher. Fun.
  15. Marilyn Manson / Personal Jesus. I cannot hide from the fact that I am a MM fan. Beautiful People blew my mind when I was a senior in high school. And I STILL harbor the fantasy of going to a MM concert decked out in full pink regalia.
  16. Wyclef Jean / Bullet in Your Bubble Goose. Seriously? South Park. That's all.
  17. Beastie Boys / Brass Monkey. This is a wiggler-song. It makes me feel like wiggling. hehehehe.
  18. Tom Petty / Don't Come Around Here No More. All I remember about this song from when I was younger is the video with the Alice-cake. Do you remember that? They ate the Alice!
  19. Poison / Ride the Wind. I remember that in sixth grade, my music tastes started to vary drastically from those of my friends. My mom introduced me to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Segar, and Queen while my friends were listening to "I Wanna Sex You Up." Thus, my hairband tastes started pretty early.
  20. Culture Club / Karma Chameleon. Karmakarmakarmakarma karma chameleonnnnnnnnnnnn.
  21. Faith No More / Falling to Pieces. I love me some Faith no More. I think this is my favorite song of theirs.
  22. Dexy's Midnight Runners / Come On Eileen. Too-ra-loo-rah-eh! I loved this song in high school. Still kinda gets me all dance-y.
  23. Gavin DeGraw / I Don't Want to Be. I heard this on Ellen. Dug it!
  24. George Clinton / Atomic Dog. Our unofficial class song, when I was a senior in high school, was Atomic Dog. I'd never heard of George Clinton before that, but I fell in lo-ove with the song. (Our high school mascot was a pointer.) A-tom-ic do-oo-og.
  25. OutKast / The Way You Move. I have to admit: I like the rapper better than Andre. This is a wiggler song, too.
  26. Rob Zombie / Pussy Liquor. WARNING TMI! The first time I heard this song, I almost had the big-O right at my desk. This is actually a pretty creepy song (about murderers and stuff), but I totally heart the way his voice sounds in it.
  27. GNR / You Could Be Mine. This is one of the only Axl songs I like. Otherwise, he sounds whiney. I read the other day that Axl thinks Slash is a "cancer." PFFT. Slash made that band, man!
  28. 311 / All Mixed Up. Another high school band. I remember when I first saw this video, and the guy had bright yellow hair! I like the mellow tone to this, though.
  29. Melissa Etheridge / You Can Sleep While I Drive. ME is one of my favorite artists, and I have followed her career since my dad gave me (ahem, I stole) her first cassette. This is one of my favorite tracks of hers, and I can't ever listen to it without thinking of Storm.
  30. Blackeyed Peas / Where Is the Love? I remember when the Peas didn't have a choral singer. Still, I like Fergie. I like the pinocchio rap at the end of this, too.

Jen, if you do read this, IT TOOK FOREVER. It's 5PM, I'm going home now.
