I had a post about fatherhood all set to go, but when I read my friend Emily‘s bulletin on MySpace, I decided that I had to participate. She’s an old friend from high school, so I’m doing this in honor of my Friendships post earlier in the week. The bass player in a rock band, she would be the one to post this.
I’m posting it (relatively) early so everyone will have lots of time to get it done. Do as many as you can. This probably tells more about me than any long-winded post could.
Put your music player on shuffle.
Press forward for each question.
Use the song title as the answer to the question.
No cheating! Who cares if it doesn’t make sense. (And it doesn’t.)

My lovely wife, and then our very own lovely Linda, made me smack my forehead in a V-8 moment. I shouldn’t wait until Thanksgiving Day for a Thanksgiving post. Oh well, a little late, but I give thanks for all y’all out here in the blogosphere.
Be good to yourselves, and do at least one thing you’ve never done before, even if it’s just turning down that one road you keep telling yourself you’re going to explore.
