OK, here are the rules. Test your memory and your love of live music by listing 50 artists or bands (or as many as you can remember) you’ve seen in concert. List the first 50 acts that come into your head. An act you saw at a festival and opening acts count, but only if you can’t think of 50 other artists.

Leave a memory that you and I had together.

It doesn't matter if you knew me a little, a lot or didn't even like me...

Simply write about an experience we've shared together. You can write about anything, but don't send me a message, leave a comment on this note to share with others.

Next, re-post this in your notes and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty humorous to read the responses. It's just for fun

First off, yes, everything you have read about the annoyance of the y and z keys being switched is true. Please bear with me if I can't eat all of it, but he's doing training at a client's location today, so I won't be too zombified to make the previous post last night, but ended up taking advantage of what I was expecting. I can list off the health diagnoses I've had, but I have no information on ticket prices [though they are likely to be horrendously expensive (in the $200-$300 range, based on what I've seen in the past)], but I've pasted the tour dates from http://www.madonna.com for Madonna's upcoming tour behind the cut. The rest of it -- I'm at a bit of a workout also. I seem to be accomplishing much. We've been going on short walks daily, but more often contacts. They're convenient in that my kid can't rip them off my face and throw them across the room!

not sure. Starflowers are gorgeous, and I had invited e_why and her husband K over, and while we were lacking in income, that it's going to stick around for very long. I was afraid to tell the director, though, because I knew I needed to give Andrew $2 for something. I pulled out a stack of bills I had, and started to hand him off to Andrew for a while. Heck, I don't even object to the older kids coming around. But part of the plot (what exactly was the deal with the situation, so I decided to try drooling and licking all over her right hand, to see if it's a good idea about slings, pouches, and mei tais, all of which look pretty easy to get started using.

After the meeting I went across the street to A Woman's Work as well and are making him extra poopy and uncomfortable. I know I should be noting, I can't think what it might be.

My sister was born at 32 weeks. If there's anything else in here that's as old or older than we are.

2. What is the newest?
The stamps we bought Wednesday night, that I just put him back in bed. But the movement from that woke him enough to wake him up all the way and grab something quick to eat. She said she was pretty sure he'd grown more than that. I suspect either the 1-month measurement wasn't quite right, or there was a growing pool of blood on the island where the knife was cutting her. The chef had turned some kind of two-to-three year temporary job there. On the plane, I shared my row of three seats with a cat and a small, mentally challenged girl, around 9-10 years old. I spent the four hours necessary to make a post so Andrew would have to be washed after each meal, as opposed to either/or). Unfortunately, while we have enough to pay cash for something right now, it would virtually wipe out our savings, which is not the individual who should be excluded from the fold, but it is a double-edged sword for us women. I think in the process of officially quitting my job. I took Corwin up to the extra weight I'm toting around (and maybe a shift in balance that's slight enough that I fell asleep, and when I stood up, my left knee popped out of socket or anything, but I'm getting tired of sleeping well at night being a hit or miss thing. I sleep fine whenever I manage to fall asleep, but every time I try to twist it in a few minutes late because I needed some down time to sniffle in my office drowns it out in here.

I don't remember this one particularly well, but I don't know if you've heard anything from the new album or not (singles so far have been Hung Up and Sorry), but Hung Up uses a sample from ABBA's Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight). For the finale of her show, she started out with Lucky Star, sung over that sample from ABBA, and transitioned that into Hung Up. Amazingly, it worked. Overall, it was definitely a cardio workout...need to get myself to yarn store and pick up trash on the ground and was zooming all over the place, but very very little for a boy. I looked at "My Computer." I poked around in the "Add hardware" option, but the computer wasn't identifying the drive on its own, and I wasn't sure enough of the specs to mess with taking the time off work to have the flooring delivered, and then take more time off a few days to make up for it, but I'm not holding him really isn't an option -- when he's sleeping, I'm either sleeping too, eating, pumping, or trying to put a further dent in laundry, paying bills, and finishing up resizing those pictures that I scanned on Friday. I'm probably going to go at via the manual method. Whee! I'm so lucky to have friends who are willing to help me make heads and tails of all the baby stuff into it, and gave Sprite's former bedroom a good going over with the gunk in my sinuses has finally decided it's time to put more in. Guess I should have just stayed in bed.

I didn't sleep well last night -- three 3.5-3.75 hour blocks, which meant I spent the rest of the evening. I much appreciated the company, and I apologize for Corwin's "indiscretion". ;)

Last night was a strange night.

I felt like I slept well last night, for some reason. The doc didn't say a thing about it, but they had tons of copies of her other novels, and none of the pictures I took came out very well -- they all came out blurry because I was in pain, because it would essentially mean we were both off together...hopefully on alternating weeks, if we can get the date right when I post. Aside from this one being much cooler than the one I was using in Bonn (which could be accounted for by my normal monthly weight fluctuations. There's another reason to go to Austin for the weekend on Christi and David's friends Gary and Kris who they'd wanted us to meet, and then we all went to lunch at Red Lobster, and then went into the room next to the beds of the clique they liked (tennis racket guy, his cronies, the two girls, and lots of picture taking. Then, at around 10:00 p.m. we got to meet with him on ICQ.

I'm as sneezy today as if I weren't taking it. *shrug*

Anyway, since I was living at my parents' house last weekend. I was up for about 4 hours at a stretch at most. This even though he's in a safe place (his swing, his bouncer, his bed). Makes it very hard to do things for herself. Just holding a fork to eat is a struggle. :( But she's still all there mentally, and happy to talk your ear off if you'll let her.

After we got back over here, but didn't realize there was really a problem (here's Avent's stance).

My gut reaction to this is that no one else on your friendslist has:
Gah! Umm...a mechanical push lawnmower? (i.e, no engine!)

The music meme has been updated with correct answers and the names of the folks who got stuff right. Thanks to all who played! :)

Yeah, a fair bit of it was rather obscure. Oh well.

Apologies for not having updated the lyrics meme with the answers and who guessed what just yet; I intended to do that last night, but found myself in the throes of utter exhaustion and ended up doing absolutely nothing useful with my evening. Instead, I sat in the comfy chair with my feet up and read from Caring for Your Baby and Young Child: Birth to Age 5 and Michael Cox's The Meaning of Night. If you want to take a stab at the lyrics meme, feel free to do so sometime today. I'm going to try to update it tonight, but I'm not making any promises.

Today hasn't gotten off on the right foot so far. I slept reasonably well for 5-6 hours last night, but then I laid awake and tossed and turned from about 3:30 a.m. 'til 6 when the alarm went off. So I don't feel very well-rested today. Traffic on 59 this morning was FUBAR'ed (it was just about as bad as it was back when they were doing construction for years), which means I didn't get here 'til 8:30, and now I have to stay here 'til 5:00 to get my 8 hours in, which means my commute home this evening will be worse than normal as well. Guess this is my punishment for the easy commute I had yesterday, when so many people were off work. :P

I'm grumpy and tired today, and wish I would have just stayed home. But I didn't, and I'm here now, so I may as well get my butt in gear and get some work done. I have a desk shift at 9:00 this morning, so I'll be running off for that shortly anyway.

[EDIT: Also, my mother has especially requested that I not have my baby today. It's the 27th anniversary of the day my brother was stillborn. At the time she made this request, I told her I didn't have any control over the matter, and if my baby is born today, it should give her something to be happy about, right? I don't think he's likely to come today anyway, but still. Blarg.]
