Doin' Truffle Shuffle...

...More like the iPod Shuffle, but that sounded better (Ooooof! Not a pretty picture mental pic of myself though).

  My Dear friend B tagged me in a facebook note that went a little something like this:

1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer. 

(2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode. 

(3) List the first 15 songs that come up (song title and artist) NO editing/cheating, please. Even if you might skip the song when it comes up or be embarrassed for people to know that it's in your collection, you still must list it.

I figured that I'd blog it, because my musical tastes will be an important thing for O (and apparently, my Husband)  to know about his Mommy, right?

Side Note: Isn't shuffle always a surprising moment? I mean, we bought the music, but there's always that "OH!" moment about a song we've forgotten/thought we didn't have/hadn't heard in eons...

See, this is why mine sucked. Because husband tends to overwhelm with his music, such as Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Cake, etc, I have none of said music on MY iPod! Hence my list was all extremely estrogeny! Way to have balance, mama. ;) PS I feel like a celebrity now that I've been tagged in your blog post! Tee hee!
