I can't tell you how many times I have started a sentence like that. It is what made us take our kids and travel across the country for a month. It is what prompted us to go sky diving. It's why I have a garage full of ski equipment (no snow yet). Honestly, people should be scared when they hear me utter those words.
Not this time though. This idea won't make you test your fears or hunt down a long time dog sitter. It's just a simple little game. I'm even going give you a day to think about it. You know Itunes? You know how they have those celebrity playlists? I love those. It's where celebrity's pick like 8-15 songs that would go on their all time favorite playlist. Now the older celebrities always have a lot of Rolling Stones, Eric Claypton, Lynrd Skynrd. The younger ones have all sorts of rap and Beyonce. I love when they have a musician and they put their own song on there. The "cooler" celebrities will have somewhat obscure songs on there cause they know the band. And almost everyone has a Bob Dylan song on there. I think you must make some sort of 'blacklist" if you don't put Bob on there. I love Bob Dylan as much as the next guy but can I just tell you, I saw him in concert when I was in college in a pretty small venue and you could not understand a word he was singing, not a word. Maybe it was an off day.
So basically, lets do that. Pick say, your top 5 favorite songs. You can do more. I just want someone to play with me. You have to tell why you picked it. Check out a couple of the celebrity lists if you want to. Just to give you an idea. Come on, it's not like you're busy or something. ;) If you want to e mail it to me I will put it in tomorrows post or you can just leave it in the comment section. Come on anonymous, play.
Until then I will leave you with a short playlist cause I'm in a hurry. T-minus 6 minutes and counting before I have to wake everyone up. This is NOT my celebrity playlist. It's just for your listening pleasure...
