Don't know if this will be a regular or not yet.

Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays by DJ KathyA! We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a singer, band, era or category and pick thirteen of their songs. Each of our questions will be based on the lyrics. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Talking Heads.

1. Psycho Killer “I can’t seem to face up to the facts, I’m tense and nervous and I can’t relax. I can’t sleep cuz my bed’s on fire. Don’t touch me I’m a real live wire…”
What has kept you from a restful night’s sleep recently?  Two things- Curt's snoring and a spring popped in my mattress. flipped it (the mattress) until I get around to buying another.

2. Life During Wartime “This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco…this ain’t no foolin around. No time for dancing or lovey dovey. I ain’t got time for that now…”
Where was the last nightclub or disco you went to?  Seriously?? I honestly don't remember.  Trying, but don't remember.

3. Take Me To The River “Take me to the river. Dip me in the ocean. Take me to the river washing me down…”
When was the last time you took a dip in the water? I'm assuming you don't mean my shower right?  So i guess last summer.

4. Found A Job “Their show gets high ratings, they think they have a hit. There might be a spin off, but they’re not sure ‘bout that”
What is your favorite TV spin off show of all time? Benson??

5. Once In A Lifetime “And you may ask yourself How do I work this? And you may ask yourself Where is that large automobile? And you may tell yourself This is not my beautiful house! And you may tell yourself This is not my beautiful wife!”
Are you happy with your choices of car, house and spouse/no spouse?Yes, although pretty soon it will be time for a new car and that is always such and ordeal. Especially since GM closed Saturn.  And I am such a pain in the ass about it.  I have sort of accepted that I will probably have to get power windows and locks ( I have control issues and yes keep one of those window breaking things under the seat in Curt's car) But I absolutely refuse to drive an automatic transmission.  And sticks seem to come in baseline 4 cyl engines or high end sports cars.  I'm going to end up in a German car and I don't want to do that, cuase I'd rather American nd I want a car that uses regular gas not premium.

6. This Must Be The Place “Out of all those kinds of people, you got a face with a view. I’m just an animal looking for a home, share the same space for a minute or two…”
Who has a face with a view?  There are a couple slurpable faces out there. But right now the one I most want is Tony!

7. Girlfriend Is Better “I got a girlfriend that’s better than this, and you don’t remember at all. As we get older and stop making sense, You won’t find her waiting long…”
What is the shortest date or relationship you have ever had? 8 minutes?  After hurting my knee skiing and then having to drive home because my then boyidiot couldn't drive a stick, I decided to only date guys who could. You know injuries, migraines,  alcohol any number of reasons I wouldn't want to drive home.  Then found out the next boy idiot only lied to me about being able to drive a stick- he saw someone so thought it was easy.  After that unless the boy idiots had a stick for their own I made them drive mine around the block before we went out.  I think the one guy thought i was kidding - I thought I was very clear.  He failed before the first stop sign, I made him get out, I drove the 300 feet back home, went inside, locked the door, ordered pizza.

8. Swamp “Everyone wants to explode. And when your hands get dirty, nobody knows you at all. Don’t have a window to slip out of . Lights on, nobody home”
Where was the last homeless person you saw and what was he/she doing? Cleaning themselves in  a store's restroom. ( I gave them the 20 dunkin donuts gift card I had)

9. Road To Nowhere “We’re on the road to paradise. Here we go. We’re on a road to nowhere, come on inside. Takin that ride to nowhere, we’ll take that ride”
When was the last time you took a day trip or a road trip? Does going to Philly to pick up the Angie for her week off count?? if yes - then Saturday.

10. And She Was "The word was movin and she was right there with it and she was”
Are you keeping up with the world? What piece of modern technology do you still need to own/use? LaTely, Ive been trying to keep the outside world outside.  I only read the newspaper on Sunday's and don't watch the news.  I occasionally see things on the internet. ( My mom's family is in japan so I have been watching the earthquake news) I don't know what I still need.  I have top of the line video game machines, ipod touch, laptop, galaxy, ipad. smart phone. I don't have a gps, but my phone has 3 different navigation programs- google maps nav is my favorite... Oh I know I want the Nikon digital SLR.  definietly don't need it though,

11. Wild Wild Life Sleepin on the interstate oh oh oh…getting wild wild life. Checkin in and checkin out oh oh oh, I got a wild wild life”
When was the last time you stayed at a motel/hotel and what town were you in?August- Curt was with me so I couldn't crash at my friend's place, and silly me, i thought I should stick around for a day or so when Angie moved into her dorm, in case she needed anything.  I ended up spending 2 days with my friend (Curt left on day 2). That would be in center city Philadelphia

12. Nothing But Flowers “Once there were parking lots, now it’s a peaceful oasis, you got it you got it. Once it was a pizza Hut, now it’s all covered with daisies. I miss the honky tonks, Dairy Queens and 7-11 s…”
What would you miss if nature grew back over malls and concrete?Starbucks

13. Building On Fire “When my love stands next to your love, I can’t define love, when it’s not love…”
Define love. I CAN'T.   Seriously, the problem is the English language.  I LOVE coffee.  I Love football.  I LOVE flooring.  I Love unloading trucks. I LOVE sushi.  I Love my friends.  I LOVE my friend's cat.  I LOVE a few of my friends more/differently.  I LOVE my daughter.  I LOVE my uncle.  I LOVE my cousins. I LOVE my husband.  All of these LOVES are different.  Someone told me once that in the Greek language there were like 20 or 30 words- all different- for different loves. 

Coming soon: Pink Floyd!


  1. Ria -

    My dogs love me more then they love themselves. They would give up there life for me. I believe that defines the true meaning of love.

    A long weekend with someone that counts would be a good thing.

    I worked two different projects close to Philadelphia. One in Salem, NJ and the other in Middletown, PA. I love going to Philadelphia. You must live close to that area.

    Thank-you for visiting my blog.



  2. I loved Benson, but I think I am going to have to go with Deep Space 9.


I've gotten rid of the word verification for posting comments. To tell the truth, I have trouble reading the new stuff they are using. Feel free to disagree, but spammy or obnoxious comments will not go up.
