Stealing from my own facebook...

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first couple of lines from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 5: If you like the game post your own

1. I never loved nobody fully, always one foot on the ground

2. You always knew a way to find my good half, and I knew just the way to make you cry

3. Girl, I know the hall looks dark, and the storm it seems so scary

4. My mom has this boyfriend, his name is Steve, I want him so very much to die

5. Where do you go with your broken heart in tow? What do you do with the left over you?

6. I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob, He used to steal, gamble and rob. He thought he was the smartest guy in town

7. I'm a modern girl, but I fold in half so easily...

8. The only girl I've ever loved was born with roses in her eyes

9. I'd like to have company during thunderstorms, I'd like you to fall for me but it'd soon turn lousy and wrong

10. See me driving down the street, I'm bored with looking good

11. You slept in your overalls after the wrecking ball bereft you of house and home and left you with sweet fuck-all

12. I fell in love again, all things go, all things go

13. All is fair in love and we're in love. Now that everybody's dead we can finally talk.

14. You wait up for me, I don't wake up for you. Would you like the company or are you sick of me?

15. Well, this is not a good sign. You don't know when, but you're running out of time.

16. You can't get to heaven in a sliver spoon. You can polish everything except for the mark on you.

17. I listened in, yes I'm guilty of this, you should know this. I broke down and wrote you back before you had a chance to.

18. I wear a ponytail like a waterfall, loud speaker cause a landslide, I have a room key and a Johnny, a good buzz, feeling all right

19. With your feet in the air and your head on the ground, try this trick and spin it, yeah

20. Heaven, I need a drug. Her eyes are all but fixed upon her coffee cup. Looking down, she tells you things are looking up. Take another slug.

21. When I'm 102, will the sky be blue? Will the night be long?

22. I've been a bad, bad girl. I've been careless with a delicate man.

23. Here I dreamt I was a soldier, and I marched the streets of Birkenau

24. I may be dead, honey, but I was left with my eyes. And underneath, sugar, well I've been sunk by your lies.

25. God only knows why you never listen to my records. God only knows why you never moved out west with me.

Prepare to have your mind blown.

Sit back and enjoy this story by a young French girl, Capucine, who has the biggest imagination and the biggest eyes ever. So so adorable.

Going Down?

Oh man. I think I have a crush on Colin Meloy. I can't help it, this video is great and I love the song so so much. Here's Colin, inexplicably performing an acoustic version of We Both Go Down Together in an elevator in Amsterdam. It's adorable.

Owie, Part 2

In case we needed more evidence of the fact that I'm terribly accident prone, earlier today whilst taking off my shirt to get in the shower, I managed to bash my elbow against the wall. It doesn't hurt that much any longer, unlike my knee, which hurt for about a week afterwards. Also unlike my knee: I've got a sweet bruise:

The web cam doesn't do the bruise justice, it's an awesome shade of strawberry pink surrounded by deep purple. And there's a little scab in the middle, because I also managed to break the skin. Yes, this was all caused by hitting my elbow on the wall while taking off my shirt. I've lived in this house for 15 years, it's not like I didn't know the wall was there.

Moral of the story: I never want to hear you complain about hitting your funny bone. I will laugh at your "pain." Also: I should not be allowed to take off my clothes or live in a place with walls.

I'm in love with Paul Rudd. I think Sara and I, and possibly Nicole, are going to see Role Models this weekend.

And here's the Role Models trailer, for more good Rudd Funn.

The Good and The Bad

First of all: Obama! Obama! Obama! I feel bad that he's inheriting all the problems Bush created, but, hey, things can't get any worse. I have faith, Obama.

But, it's not all good news. Those of you who have an interest in gay rights will be saddened to know that gay-marriage bans passed in 4 out of 5 states, including California.

Read more about the election results you care about at feministing.
