I’ve been tagged by Talia. I’m not wearing any socks, but these are the first few things that come into my head, in no particular order, bearing in mind that tomorrow I might wear socks and have a completely different list. But I guess anytime I hear these songs I’m likely to smile.

“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” Rolling Stones 1969
“Stoned Me” Van Morrison 1970
“No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature” The Guess Who 1970
“Steal My Kisses” Ben Harper 1999
“Up On Cripple Creek” The Band 1969
“Easy Rider” Janis Joplin 1968

Looks like I might be old. We’re renovating our musical minds over here, looking into music that we weren’t really aware of when it came out. Satellite radio and itunes have opened up vast musical horizons. I guess I better tag someone now. Jesus and Jennifer, you’re it and you’re it.

In other news:

Fiddler’s Hearth was great. There is something otherworldly about watching people doing what they love. Of course, it doesn’t hurt when they’re good at doing what they love, either. I know, I know, I'm the mom...

The cleaning and polishing and shining continues. Gene is now surfing the net, figuring out where his pants should break, what color shirt and tie to wear to an interview. We’ve been married 22 years and these have never been pressing concerns.

Also love "Sock it to ya" and "Me and Bobby McGee" by Janis Joplin.

I need to do a mapquest of my house to the Dowagiac Middle School. I'll email you tonight about what time we can meet. I'm really REALLY looking forward to it, mostly because I'm tired of playing house, and need to be in my element.

Janis Joplin had that "something" that I can't think of the word for now. Some people's bodies aren't quite big enough to contain their spirits, but that's not all of it by a long shot -- which reminds me that I should have included Bob Dylan's "Thunder on the Mountain" as something that is not part of my history, but part of the now.

I'm going to mapquest, too. We'll talk more about the downsides of playing house later! That could be a long conversation.
