Unless there's ranch or ketchup.

The first time I heard the song, "Gotta Be Somebody" by Nickelback, I totally and completely hated it. I thought it was such a lame song. Then I heard it again and hated it less. Again and didn't hate it but didn't care. Again and I really listened to the words. I liked the song after that. After thinking about the words and the ways I can relate to the simple meaning in them, I really started liking the song. I haven't much been able to get it out of my head for very long the last couple days. It's not constant so it doesn't bother me. I love this song. Laugh if you want. Trust me, I don't care. I like what I like. People who make fun of other people for liking a different kind of music are silly. I do it sometimes but I'm never serious about it. Which is something people don't get because sometimes it's hard to tell when I'm joking. People like what they like. I don't dig Josh Groban at all but there are plenty out there that go ape shit over his music. Well and fine but not my thing. Back to this song though, I love it. I caught hell from a friend of mine the other day because he considers it a sappy little love song. So what if it is? I normally loathe love songs though. They're generally just so silly and I don't care for them. This one makes me smile.

- "Gotta Be Somebody" Lyrics

It's cold and raining here for the umpteenth day in a row now. I don't mind it. I love when it rains. My only complaint is that I don't get any thunder and lightning shows. Just rain. Which is fine. I love rain. I love the cooler weather. I don't mind cold weather if I have the appropriate clothing to keep warm. Which I do. I love the gloomy weather. I feel so relaxed when it's raining. I love to sit outside and watch the water fall and hit the pavement. Listen to the sounds. The water trickling down from the roof, dripping from the leafs, hitting grass, dirt and pavement. Turning everything a darker color. I love it. *happy sigh*

The Stars don't play again until FRIDAY! FUCK. :( Though hopefully they can use this time to shape up our defense, lol. We're not doing so hot on our D and our goaltending is off too. We're having a slow start but I still have faith in my boys to get it together and put out a good season. I don't have any games to watch until Friday though! *cries* Of course, I can always watch Calgary and San Jose games. :D Of course, it's never as fun watching teams I like/can tolerate as it is to watch *MY* team play. The level of excitement and passion isn't the same. I still enjoy watching other teams though and even have a few that I like and really do get in to watching. Unless they happen to be playing Dallas, then all bets are off in favor of my Stars. :D

Madagascar 2 comes out this weekend. My youngest brother and I both *love* the first Madagascar. I love animated movies. Most of them anyway. So I want to try and take him with me and see that sometime soon. He really wants to see it and I kind of want to see it too. Most sequels are usually pretty silly BUT some sequels, I end up really digging. Which reminds me...

The Transporter 3 is coming out soon! I *love* Jason Statham. I like the first Transporter movie best but I still liked the second one. Hoping the third is good. Of course, I don't have anyone to go to the movies with so I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD. Or suck it up and learn to go to movies alone, lol.

Wednesday Weirdness :)
Want to play?

1. If you were in a situation where it was either starve to death or resort to cannibalism, would you resort to cannibalism to stay alive or let yourself starve?
I saw a variation of this question somewhere and decided to tweak it to use it here, lol. I know two people won't play this week. They already told me about it since this question weirded them out too much. Oh well. :)

To the answer now. Honestly, I'd have to say that I doubt I'd ever be able to eat human flesh to stay alive. I'd probably start eating tree bark, plants, bugs or dirt first, lol. I'd like to say I'd never do that but since I've never been in the position where I was so desperate, I don't know. I'd like to say I never would but sometimes, we do shit we used to say we would never do because things change. I would totally want to live though I really don't think I could manage doing this one. Unless... I dunno. :)

2. Do you know all of the words to the National Anthem and The Pledge of Allegiance?
Yes and yes.

3. Do you consider yourself a leader or a follower?
I lead. I'm too bossy and aggressive to be a follower. Most of the time.

4. What is your most favorite holiday? Why?
Halloween. It's the only one that doesn't make me feel crazy. :) I enjoy every little thing about it.

5. In what ways, if any, are you superstitious?
Not much but I know there are a few little things. I just can't think of them right now. Urgh!

6. If you had to pick a creature from the Mythical Creatures Guide to be your pet, which would you choose and why?
I would want a Gargoyle as a pet. They protect buildings from evil spirits and that could come in handy. Plus, I bet it would make a lot of people think twice before knocking on my front door trying to sell me something, lol. Also, I got obsessed with them as a kid and have always wished I could have one, lol.

Happy Wednesday!

Kittie Kate said...

I'd rather starve to death than eat human flesh. But I don't fly anyways so I won't be in that situation.

Another Suburban Mom said...

I hope the Stars do well for you. I used to love rain, until it meant that then the kids were cooped up inside.

If we get several days of rain in a row, I think they might be to the point where Human Flesh is looking pretty tasty.

Jennybean said...

I love rain too... puts me in a great mood.

Now the white stuff... not always so much...

Baby said...

phairhead said...

there's something soothing and sensual about listening to the sound of rain.

gargoyles are totally kick ass. i wish I could have one on top of my car.

Amorous Rocker said...


I hate flying. I have too much anxiety to be on a plane, lol.

ME too! Lol. Thanks.
I'm sure if I had kids, the rain might be a little less soothing to me, lol. :D

The cold white stuff, bleh. I've got so little experience with that junk anyway.

At least I'm not the only one excited for those movies. Yay! Oh I would love that. I'd love a trip to Paris. And the money to do so, lol. :D


Compromise works! Lol. :D I knew quite a few people wouldn't be playing because of the questions this week so I'm glad you still did. :D

It's a good one. :)

Yay! I'm just glad my little brother likes the first one and wants to see the second one. That way I won't have to go alone, lol. :D
Thank you! :)

Thank you!

lil bit:
Mmm... I like me some... Nickelback too, lol.
Thanks doll! :D

Mmhmm. There is. :D
Yes they do! One on top of a car would rock but I bet it would freak the shit out of some people, lmao.=X
