Oh dear, haven’t got round to blogging in, like, fuh-ev-a, so after a scolding from Evol here I am. And to ease myself in, a “meme” that I got from Monty – not often I do a me-me-me these days, but I liked the random mixing of words – you put your iTunes on shuffle, and use the song titles to answer a bunch of questions.

What does next year have in store for me? A Little Bit of Soap
What’s my love life like? All Apologies
What do I say when life gets hard? Roadblock
What do I think of on waking up? Waiting for the moon to rise
What song will I dance to at my wedding? Melting Pot
What do I want as a career? Forget It
My favorite saying? Nothing Compares 2 U
Favorite place? Tonight Will Be Fine
What do I think of my parents? Keep On Running
What’s my porn star name? Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland)
Where would I go on a first date? Television
Drug of choice? Women’s Realm
Describe myself. Pink Moon
What is the thing I like doing most? Special Cases
What is my state of mind like at the moment? Ed is Dead
How will I die? My Interpretation

Some work better than others, but on the whole some pretty good combinations. Love life and career made me chortle. My only regret is that ‘Television’ didn’t crop up a question later…

For the record, the artists were De La Soul, Nirvana, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Belle & Sebastian, Booker T & The MG’s, St Germain, Jimmy Scott, Teddy Thompson, Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Robyn Hitchcock, Belle & Sebastian, Nick Drake, Massive Attack, Pixies, Mika.
