|Does this not look like a guy enjoying himself?|
So, to the readers that I really do have, what kind of music do you like?
I am not sure if I've asked that question. Although I am a Petty gal, I have very eclectic tastes, I enjoy everything from rock, to pop, country, rap (some, I really detest the "I wanna kill and rape everyone" stuff), some jazz, even some classical. (I find heavy metal to be a bit more than I can handle, but I think it's as much because I don't like high pitched noise more than anything else. Volume could have something to do with it, too...
I was trying to think of what I had (besides Petty) just on my one MP3 player... It's rather heavy with rock, but there is a variety. Areosmith, AC/DC,Beatles, Blue Oyster Cult, Dire Straights, Bruce Springsteen, CCR, Charlie Daniels Band, Cheap Trick, Chemical Brothers, Chumbawumba, Coldplay, Don McLean, Doobie Brothers, Duran Duran, Foreigner, Garth Brooks, Golden Earring, Inner Circle, Jefferson Airplane, Jethro Tull, Jon Melloncamp, John Stewart, Jon Bon Jovi, Kenny Loggins, Paul Simon, Perry Como, Queen, Ricky Martin, Ricky Skaggs, Saffire, Santana, Starship, Steppenwolf, Styx, Supertramp, Sweet, The Cars, The Doors, The Who, Van Halen, Warren Zevon, Mason Williams. And there are probably some more, but I can't get the machine to tell me other than "Various Artists"...
I also listen to Johnny Cash, Sons of the Pioneers, Ke$ha, Charlie Pride, Vivaldi, Leadbelly, Katy Perry, Marty Robbins, Neil Diamond, Lady Gaga, Goldfish, The Byrds, Tennessee Ernie Ford... Do you get the idea I like music?
Anyway, any suggestions on your musical enjoyment? What is your favorite song? Does anyone have musical "moods", like I do? If I am in a bad mood, I don't want to listen to fast music. If I am really busy, I like music with a fast(er) pace. I listen to instrumentals if I want to relax and go to sleep. I even have specific songs, on occasion (Petty's "Alright for Now", I relax and am ready to sleep. Except when the darn player then goes to AC/DC's "Highway to Hell". Just a tiny bit jarring...)
I lost 1.8 pounds. I am pleased. I think that the walking has helped. Everyone else has noticed my weight loss, I couldn't see it. Bless him, as only my husband could do. He grabbed the back of my pants, which are now looser, and said, "See? You have a saggy butt!"
I laughed, then reminded him that telling women they have saggy butts MIGHT be taken the wrong way, but that I did truly appreciate the compliment. He looked happy, I felt happy, and I know that something is happening, even if I can't see it.
I have been able to walk more steadily, without stumbling, and stand for microscopically longer periods of time. So, I guess those show something is happening, too. Just have to keep in mind, I didn't get here overnight, I certainly am not going to get back to 150 over night.
Oh, and if anyone is interested, this is my 400th blog entry. (Which impresses me that I "talk" that much...) For no other reason than that, I am going to have a contest. If you leave a comment on today's blog, I will put you in a drawing, with your choice of prizes. Drawing will be, oh, Friday. It will be something highly technical, like putting the names on slips of paper and taking them from one of my numerous hats. My thought is there will be one prize, but we'll see what I decide, there might be two.
If you are a spinner, I will send you some fluff.
If you are a knitter, I will send you some of my hand spun.
If you are neither of the above, I will make you a knitted item, either a hat or mittens.
Of course, you have the option of mixing that up, if you are a spinner that REALLY wants mittens or something...
(Please note, you WILL get said prize, but I am not known for my alacrity, but I will get it to you. I have my email on the blog, bug me if you get worried.)
Oh, and to my family? You are welcome to comment, but you are not eligible, because I will probably make you a hat and mittens, anyway...
So, let the commentables begin!
