Tags & Memes

I got tagged as:

Lynn over at A Tired Mama tagged me with this Rockin' Girl Blogger pink tag thingy. She also wrote something very nice about me...and I truly appreciate it...Thanks Lynn. Wow! You think I'm cool. hee hee

"Now I must choose 5 women bloggers worthy of this beautiful pink button and that shouldn't be too hard. If you get tagged, grab your well deserved pretty pink badge up top and slap it on your site and then list 5 Rockin' Girl Bloggers. Here's my no particular order...:

Kailani: Kailani is a busy mom like me, but she thows in an extra kiddo and she works as a flight attendant too! I don't know how she manages to do it all, but she sure comes up with some very funny flight stories. People are sure funny and I love hearing about the weird stuff they do while stuffed into a plane.

Catzee: Is a very cute tortishell kitten who bloggs about her adventures in figuring out our world. She is very curious and shares her world with her older brother Rascal, who as you can see has his own blog too. Sometimes it's a hoot to check out the other side to the story as the cats have very different personalities but get along pretty well under the same roof. Their mom also blogs about her attempts to do her yarn work with curious kitties around.

Carmen: is a fun-loving (maybe not for long?) single gal living & working in VA. She has a very cute cat named Pooh and takes trips to die for. We all live vicariously through her adventures.

Jen: My good real live buddy who got me started in all this blogging business. Jen is a homeschooling mom to 4 great kiddos who are always good for some blog fodder. Lately she's been telling stories of her girls growing up, but she hasn't blogged about them. She may be too busy with her plumbing problems.

Ladybug: Is a very cool Mom with two lovely children who seem to have no heads. ha ha Actually I've been one of the very few privileged folks to see her kids heads. I don't know how LB does it as she is way more busy than I am, but yet she manages to blog too...maybe she doesn't sleep? Well I know she didn't sleep for LLB's slumber party. Poor gal. I hope she gets a nap today.

I actually have many more blogging friends that I think are Cool Rockin Girl Bloggers, but I just went down my blogroll from the top. I love you all!

Music meme
Seen at Janet's

1. Go to the Billboard #1 Hits listings (scroll down and you'll see them separated by decades on the left in the sidebar)
2. Pick the year you turned 18
3. Get yourself nostalgic over the songs of the year
4. Pick 5 songs and write something about how these songs affected you
5. Pass it on to 5 more friends

Okay, Like Janet...I'm gonna comment on the entire year. hee hee

December 22, 1984 - February 1, 1985: Like a Virgin- Madonna that was soooo ironic! that's all I'm sayin.
February 2 - February 15: I Want to Know What Love Is - Foreigner I think I was learning more about what Lust is.
February 16 - March 8: Careless Whisper - Wham! featuring George Michael All I can remember about this was he was arrested soon after this for those "indecent acts."
March 9 - March 29: Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon Hee hee. I remember sitting in sociology class and this girl Amy that I knew complaining about how stupid this song was...specifically the line "...row this ship onto the shore and throw away the oars forever..."
March 30 - April 12: One More Night - Phil Collins Didn't pay much attention to this song back then.
April 13 - May 10: We Are The World - USA For Africa I always prefered the Band Aid song...I was more into European artists.
May 11 - May 17: Crazy for You - Madonna I thought I was crazy for a guy back then...he sure made me do some crazy things (get your mind out of the gutter!) I mean being so focused on spending time with him that I ignored important things like my family and schoolwork. Almost blew my scholarship!
May 18 - May 24: Don't You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds Ah! The Breakfast Club! I remember seeing this at the $1 theater pub w/ same guy mentioned above. We may or may not have ordered illegal for us drinks. We knew some of the folks who worked there and they thought that we were the same age they were.
May 25 - June 7: Everything She Wants - Wham!
June 8 - June 21: Everybody Wants To Rule The World - Tears For Fears Graduation time!
June 22 - July 5: Heaven - Bryan Adams This was Rubin & Mickey's song. I always thought that Rubin was gay, but apparently Mickey was trying to convince him otherwise.
July 6 - July 12: Sussudio - Phil Collins Did anyone understand this song?
July 13 - July 26: A View to a Kill - Duran Duran Loved Duran Squared!
July 27 - August 2: Everytime You Go Away - Paul Young We used to sing..."Everytime you take a piece of MEAT with you..." LOL!
August 3 - August 23: Shout - Tears For Fears Funny, I'm remembering all these songs past June as happening earlier. I guess they were on the charts a long time.
August 24 - September 6: The Power of Love- Huey Lewis & The News Back to the Future!
September 7 - September 20: St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion) - John Parr Went to the movies w/ guy mentioned above...we paid to see Backwoods Massacre, but got bored and started to keep ourselves otherwise occupied...but soon realized that we were more interesting than the movie (all eyes were on us) so we snuck into St. Elmo's Fire. The theater was doing some collection for charity and the very same ticket taker had come in with a bucket to collect. I think he did notice that we were just in the other movie...but he didn't say anything. Whew! I must have not seen this movie again cuz I don't remember it...and no we didn't try to be occupied again!
September 21 - October 11: Money For Nothing - Dire Straits Hey, I just quoted this when we installed our new Microwave oven! Cool song...also remember this song much earlier as we had MTV when it came out and did not have MTV when I graduated.
October 12 - October 18: Oh Sheila - Ready For the World
October 19 - October 25: Take On Me - a-ha Oh I loved this song! I bought the cassette tape! I might have been the only person to do that. ha ha
October 26 - November 1: Saving All My Love For You - Whitney Houston Ya know? After all the years of her with Bobby Brown, any good memories have been tainted!
November 2 - November 8: Part Time Lover - Stevie Wonder Still wondering about that song.
November 9 - November 15: Miami Vice Theme - Jan Hammer Never did get into that show much...but did think that Don Johnson was cute.
November 16 - November 29: We Built This City - Starship Did everyone's radio station change that part to their own station?
November 30 - December 6: Separate Lives - Phil Collins & Marilyn Martin What I SHOULD have been doing, but I wasn't!
December 7 - December 20: Broken Wings- Mr. Mister
December 21, 1985 - January 17, 1986: Say You, Say Me - Lionel Richie Say WHAT?
