Birthday countdown

Alas! The countdown to my birthday begins! One month and counting until I am 20. Next year, it will be hell. I can't believe that in 13 months I will be able to drink.

I'm doing my MEME again.

Step 1: Put your iPod player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 40 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

1. I can't remember anything

I cannot take this anymore

Here we are, born to be kings


5. Hiya Barbie

Hega hega ya-hi-ye-hega

7. Have you gorged yourself at last in your lust for blood?

8. DUN DUNDUNDUNDUNDUN (props to affirmed_hope for getting this)

8. (for real) O Holy night the stars are brightly shining

9. 5,4,3,2,1 HO! Here we go!

I could be mean

11. You say you want a revolution

You ask me if there'll come a time

I wanted you to know

The whispers in the morning

15. And now I'm all alone again

It was a beautiful letdown

When this began

He called her on the road

The look of love is in your eyes

20. He was a boy

21. Are you going to Scarborough Fair

22. Imagine there's no heaven

23. The Devil went down to Georgia

Goodbye girl, because I'm lonely

25. Child of the wilderness

Don't you ever, don't you ever

27. Bicycle bicycle bicycle

28. I walk a lonely road

If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?

Do you remember me?

Can we touch the soul of heaven

Empty spaces - what are we living for

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange

34. We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

35. Whoa, my love, my darling

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick

37. When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now

38. Let me know that I've done wrong

39. Look at this photograph

40. Birds flying high

FINALLY!  That took longer than it should have because I kept stopping to listen to songs all the way through and then I went on a YouTube quest part way through. Some of these are quite obvious and if nobody gets them I will cry. Others are more obscure and I will be surprised if they are correctly guessed. I skipped all the instrumentals except for one and I actually looked up the lyrics so I could give accurate lyrics to make it easier for everyone. GOOD LUCK!! Repost this so I can do it for you!

Writer's Block: Starting Out Fresh

Many people believe that what you do on New Year's Day sets the tone for your entire year. How did you spend the first day of 2009? Do you think it will influence the rest of the year?
My first day of 2009 was spent nursing a hangover and being really tired. I don't know what that tells you but that's what I did. Hung out with a friend all the while too. I hope 2009 is a HELL of a lot better than frickin 2008 was. 2008 SUCKED!  Although I did discover David Tennant and Doctor Who, that isn't enough to redeem 2008. Here's to a better year that last!

As I run down the field, sweat pouring down my head, I can hear my heart beating in my ears. I have to keep running; have to stay behind the ball. The sir blows the whistle. Scrum down at the 20. We are deep in our own territory. We bind together, seconds are called in. The ball is put into the pack and we all push. We hear the call, "BALLS OUT!" We break and run into the other team. One of our players is tackled; we ruck over her and push on. We run, and ruck, maul, and tackle our way down the field. The clock ticks away as we see victory approaching. The try zone is in our reach. I have the ball and I am running with every last bit of energy in me. I get tackled down, but my team mates ruck over me. I get up just in time to hear the whistle blow as one of my team mates touches the ball down. We all go crazy! We won the match! This is what I live for. This is rugby, my anti-drug.
