To procrastinate working (I am SWAMPED) I did that iPod meme going around. You know, the one where you put it on shuffle, and hit the next song for each question.

Yeah, what is up with the life-ending song titles for that question?! Love your list.

In ten years, I’ll come looking for the cobras. And Dirty Water? Ewwww.
