in other news, i am still feeling poopie and wanting to lay in my bed wearing sweatpants and old boyfriend tshirts.
i also want to listen to melancholy music and wallow like a hip little pig in my puddle of ennui, so i have combined that desire with blogging and surreptitiously stolen a meme.
i asked my computer some questions and let itunes do the answerin'. itunes is clearly being run by one of the nine dieties that hates me (i know it's you apple.) if said diety wants me to believe otherwise, it will send me an ipod. one of the bigguns.
i like this meme because it makes sense to different people in different ways, based on how they read/hear the songs. also, these are all really good songs that you should listen to. i included a link and a lyric snippet to get you hooked. soon you will all listen to my music and i will rule with an iron breast! (fists are just oo mean.)
