The camera is not being cooperative today (probably because the battery light keeps blinking at me and I am being daft), so I have no photographs of FOs to show you . . . no Bella's Mittens, no new tattoo - both amazing, by the way, but you'll have to take my word for it. I'll get photos after the batteries are charged up, and I retake the ones that were deleted but not saved when the spinning pinwheel of death appeared on the Mac and I shut if off in desperation. Edit: Take that stupid battery charger! Photos at last!
Steph had this on her blog two days ago, and I have to say, I love it no matter how many times this little meme seems to circulate on the Interweb. Maybe it's because I love music, maybe it's because it's simplistic in nature, maybe because it's just fun . . . do I really need a reason?
Anyway, consider yourselves all tagged. If you choose to play, leave us a comment with a link. We're always looking for new tunes. Here are the rules: Turn on your MP3 player or iTunes on the computer. Go to "shuffle songs" mode. Write down the first 15 songs that come up--song title and artist. No editing/cheating, please. Edit for our blog: the 16th song is the title of this post, which seems fair considering that all of our blog post titles are song titles, and it's by the uber-sublime Morrissey, one of the few artists I've ever regretted not seeing in concert.
"Uniform" by Bloc Party
"White Christmas" by Bing Crosby

My only surprise? There wasn't more U2 or any Britney . . . that shocked the hell out of me. Only one of these really embarrasses me - any guesses?
PS - Song 17 was "Sweetest Decline" by Beth Orton, who has a voice that could soothe the most savage beast (or small infant).
