Friday Music Mix… Eventually…

Friday again. It is, isn’t it? I haven’t been at work this week – Spring break – so I kinda lose the plot with which day of the week it is. But I know this is Friday. Cos I asked someone this morning, just to check.

Now Friday has become a little music mix for me courtesy of Steve..

Here are the rules.

Each week I will post 3 new questions so…

(1) Go to the music player of your choice and put it on shuffle

(2) Say the question out loud

(3) Use the song title as your answers

(4) No cheating

Question 1 – If I was stranded on a desert island…..

Cajun Born, Emmylou Harris

Don’t really like this one but it’s part of an album that had one really great song on it. ‘Here, There and Everywhere.’ And that one reminds me of my teens.

In this one she sings of family, roots, soul.

That’s really pertinent for me this week because tomorrow I will have pretty much all my family – brothers, sisters, partners, weans et al – here for my daughter’s 21st birthday. Now her birthday was actually last week but she was taken to Edinburgh Zoo and on a pub crawl by her girlfriend and pals. What you gonna do, eh?  So I’m hosting the party and I’ve been at it all day. Baking. Cooking.  And I’m still not done. But it’s been fun. In a kind of hot, bothersome, impatient, let’s-make-a-massive-birthday-cake-and-home-made-lasagne kinda way. Three of my crew have birthdays within three weeks of each other. And it’s also one of my niece’s 16th tomorrow so it’s a four for one sort of do. If I’m fit for it by the end of the cook-in. So, yeah, if I was on a desert island I’d miss my family. Eventually. 😉

But, check this out. If I’d gotten the actual song I love from this album, how apt would the image and words have been?

Question 2 If I was the last person on earth…..

Mean Woman Blues, Roy Orbison

Well, anyone would be if they were left on their tod. Eventually.

Question 3. When no one is looking…..

Mister Mistoffelees, Cats

I’m a secret musical fan. I love them. I could go to every show but don’t always get the opportunity. Apparently, Glasgow doesn’t merit constant show stoppers. One of my ambitions is to go to London on my tod and do the rounds of a few of the classic shows. Happiness is grinning inanely and singing along to favourite musicals. Till I get fed up with them. Eventually.

So, Friday, eh? Just swings around without notice.

Now, with massive birthday cake made, house cleaned and scrubbed. Well, ok, not scrubbed. Sheesh, it’s family. It’s time to chill for me. First time I’ve sat on my bahookie all day.

Have a great weekend! 🙂 x

Jealousy

Jaloused plot,

titanic children dead,

repeat the crime,

anarchic ruler led.

Justify in words

all those who bled,

resurrect in actions,

then undead.

Almighty hand that smote

with fear and dread,

usurped by child,

cosmic control inbred.

Disquietude and envy

gods forced and fled,

ruled by one,

warrior from his head.

A game to play

while blood still oozes red.

Beware all jealousy,

so pride is fed.
