I don't know what specific date I started blogging - sometime in 2008 I think. But, the new blogger layout now shows me the number of posts I've done and this is number two hundred. That number seems significant so I thought I'd do something to celebrate. I see lots of people doing these 30-Day Blog Challenges and I found one that is designed to let readers get to know the blogger a little better. (As if you don't know me pretty well already after two hundred posts of hold-nothing-back, right?) One of the lists has things on it that I do not normally blog about so I thought what the hell. The next month you can all get to know me just a little better and I'd love it if you commented and told me these same facts about you!
Day 1: A favorite song
This is a hard one to nail down. I am a child of the 80's and love pretty much any hair band. I played guitar in a garage band back in college and we did some extremely heavy stuff. At the time, my favorite was Metallica. I was also classically trained on the piano and LOVE classical music, especially Tchiakovsky. But, right now my favorite song is "So What" by Pink. It has such a great beat and great lyrics and Pink is one of my favorite artists because she knows how to tell it like it is. I also love pretty much anything by Katy Perry and have been known to sing along to some of the teeny boppers that Big Sister listens to - like Selena Gomez lately. I love music in general and will listen to anything - as long as it isn't country which makes me violent and irritable or show tunes which I never got into. The heavier the better if I'm trying to concentrate and the lyrics have to hit home to make it a favorite.
Stay tuned for the next thirty days for other random facts with a window into who I am. Hope you enjoy!
