Fifty Things from My iPod

Fifty Things from My iPod

For the rest of this week, I have decided to tackle list prompts. Partly because work is busy and, well, I'm lazy.  I am also being a bad rowmie/columnmate on the YeahWrite grid and need to catch on reading y'alls blogs too.

One of the prompts on the Nano Poblano site is "Fifty things that make you happy". I tried to tackle this last week, when I was home sick and ended up with a post tentatively titled "Prednisone, Pajamas and Pretzels". Coincidentally, those were the only three things I could think of at the time that made me happy. I scrapped the idea and am trying again today.


Given I am (barely) back among the breathing and productive members of society, I am going to take the lazy way out and leave this to the randomness of my iTunes library. It isn't a total cop-out. Music is a good way to cheer me up, make me smile, and/or make me sing (badly).


Now, since I am lazy (see above), some of these may have been mentioned before in prior posts. And it should be noted, that while I am fine with my collection overall, I do have a teenager and the music collections of two exes* scattered through the master list. So, if some of these don't make me happy necessarily, they should make you laugh at least:

**Fine, if you have a question about a specific song, leave it in the comments and I will answer it.  Maybe.  Depends on the embarrassment level.
