Because I can't write about anything else right now, how about this?! I found this meme at Temporary Madness a while ago, and was saving it for just such an occasion.

If Your Life Was A Movie:

Here’s how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Play, iPod, etc.)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool.

I'd buy that soundtrack....Even if most of those songs have absolutely nothing to do with the scene it's attached to.

And, while we're on the topic of music, can I just say that someone really needs to get me away from iTunes? Seriously. I'm going to go broke. I don't even want to tell you how much money I've spent on songs so far. And let us not forget that I still have a three whole books, a bag and a moving box full of CDs that I need to import into iTunes. My iPod, in case you don't know, only holds 500 songs - my iTunes has, right now, at least double that currently stored. This makes for quite the precarious situation. Because I have a really hard time deciding which songs have to be cut from my bulging list. Granted, all of those songs are stored on my computer, and I can add or remove songs whenever I like, but still: What if I'm driving down the road and I have a sudden urge to hear Kelis' Milkshake (a song I removed because it continued to come up on the shuffle, and each time it began, I hit next before I get through even five seconds)? Huh? What then? I mean, I doubt it, but the chance is there. Just today, I bought eight songs and a whole album. And the only reason I stopped at that was because I had laundry to do and I got distracted. So far, I've listened to all of those songs all day long. But now I'm back at my computer, and I can't be trusted. iTunes is right there, just begging me to buy more songs.

That being said, if I ever had to actually plot out a soundtrack to my life, it would be a boxed set of, oh, about A MILLION CDs. Let's be glad I was limited to the categories as instructed by the meme.

Crowded House? You're a dork. Why don't you just pirate music like everybody else? It's a lot cheaper.

It is so tough to decide what to upload to the ipod! On the other hand, when you upload EVERYTHING it takes forever (and a day) to scroll down to the artist you actually want to hear.

BTW I responded to your last comment over on my page.

This meme is hilarious if only because it is so random.

Also? Sex Scene: Enough Cryin' .. Are you Meredith Grey or something?!

I have the perfect solution: Just go buy a new iPod. Yeah, so the other one isn't really old. But L, you know you love to shop.... ;)
