Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner! Yesterday I reminded everyone about my secret contest, and gave out a little hint. Actually, it must have been a big hint, because in hardly the time it takes to say Super Secret Giveaway, someone came up with the correct answer.
Before I announce the winner, I must say how much I enjoyed your comments yesterday. I especially liked those who said I was entertaining, or funny, or positive. Thank you! Bonus points to Claudia, who claimed I was a 'freakin' genius'. I love you. No bonus points to Becca, who asked if it was that I was whiny. Thanks for noticing. I love you anyway. But MAJOR EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS POINTS to Sue, who said, AND I QUOTE, "Every time you write you reach another level of rock star status?" Hey, Sue? You might be my favorite.
Yes, most of my blog titles are musical in nature. They are usually song titles, in fact. Congratulations to Joanie from Joanie's Random Ramblings, who was the first to comment on it.
I started doing this a while ago, partly because it can be hard to come up with a snappy title for a blog post. There are zillions of songs out there, all with perfectly good titles for me to steal. It's become a sort of trivia game that I play in my own head. I write the post, and then try to think of a song that fits. Oh, the myriad ways I devise to amuse myself!
Joanie - send me your address (via email) and I'll send you your super secret prize. I'm not going to announce what it is, because the prize for my 100th post contest is probably going to be the same thing, and I don't want to ruin the surprise.
I love music, and there's almost always a song running through my head while I'm doing other things. It's kind of like my own personal soundtrack. It runs the gamut - classics to current. I kept track of some of the songs I either listened to on my Ipod, or sang to myself yesterday while I was doing my household chores, and they included Ella Fitzgerald, Patsy Cline, Jason Mraz, Abba, Blood Sweat and Tears, The Carpenters, Queen and Norah Jones. My musical tastes are eclectic, I guess, but so is my life. I have a lot going on in my head - it takes a lot of different songs to accompany me.
