Friday Wrapup and Meme Monday – together again!

Filed under: Food, Librarian, music, Nerds — liberrydwarf @ 8:00 pm

Last time, I swear! From Wednesday I am so very back on track I promise!

1) One Good Thing: taught using a SmartBoard for the first time this week. In a word – AWESOME. I will not go happily (nor quietly) back to projector and whiteboard ever again!

2) One Bad Thing: Not content with letting dog hog the medical limelight, hubby got himself an eye infection. It was gross and made him headachey and grumpy and refused to drive anywhere. Not fun for anyone!

3) One Thing I Learned: that lamb chops + paprika = awesome!

And Monday meme: it’s another music meme –

Were you in the school band? I was in school choir. But not school band, I never played an instrument with enough dedication.

Church choir? I did, for about a year last year. It was only a small choir though, and when several people moved it sort of died…

What is your favourite song right now? Ooh, tricky one! My favourite song changes constantly depending on my mood and what I’m doing… I like Big Boi’s “Shutterbugg” at the moment, and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool’s  “Dance The Way I Feel”.

Favorite Lyrics? To be honest, I don’t think I pay a whole lot of attention to lyrics. But I do like the lyrics to Sally Seltmann’s “Harmony to My Heartbeat”, they make me smile and feel glad I’m in love 😀

Favorite Band? Barenaked Ladies. Hands down, absolutely no question. Thankyou and goodnight.

Favorite Soloist? This one’s a bit more difficult – Tori Amos maybe?

Favorite Musical (theatre)? I’ll admit to a secret (well not any more) weakness for Jesus Christ Superstar…

Favorite Musical (movie)? If movie musical = movie with mostly singing, again it’s no contest. Muppet Treasure Island forever!

Have you ever belonged to a mail order music club? Hubby has, but I haven’t.

Do you still have your old tape collection? I think I mostly missed the “tape” thing, too young 🙂

Do you let your friends borrow your music? “Let” is a word I’m not familiar with. Do I stand back and do nothing powerless as my siblings raid my CD collection? Yes, I do…

If you were stranded on a desert island what CD would you take with you? I wouldn’t. I’m not a CD person – I’m one of those awful people musicians hate who doesn’t enjoy listening to an album from start to finish. I’m a shuffle on iTunes girl. And before iTunes, I was a random-on-the-cd-player girl. I’m going to assume there’s a powerpoint on this desert island in order to plug the CD player in – so I’d bring my iPod and a charger instead!



  1. Totally love Jesus Christ Superstar, too!

  3. […] what is it with memes and CDs? See the music meme from a couple of weeks ago… if it had to be CDs, I’d have pre-burned as much stuff as I could from my collection […]
