The Return of an Old Favorite (well, for me, anyway)

You know what I haven't done in a while? One of those guess-the-song-lyric games. I don't really like the kind that's totally random, because that always brings up songs I hardly know, and the same artists over and over again. I wanted some random element, though, so what I did was decide on the artists myself, and then let the Shuffle feature on iTunes choose the songs. So here we go:

1. Half underwater, I'm half my mother's daughter.
2. Are you weary of lengthening days? Do you secretly wish for November's rain?
3. [Title], she's got you shaving your legs.
4. We're only [title]. We only want what's best for him.
5. [Title] the world is round, it turns me on.
6. [Title], taking every cue from every ad, girl.
7. All the way back home, I'm telling you, I caught the sun creeping up behind my shoulder.
8. I got a crush, copy shop clerk, but she won't look up at me.
9. Baby, baby, please believe me. I would never, never do anything to hurt you.
10. Dance with me, my old friend, once before we go. Let's pretend this song won't end, and we never have to go home.
11. From the back of your big brown eyes, I knew you'd be gone as soon as you could.
12. Are you too bored to think? Are you too scared to speak?
13. Against the law to talk about the rocket in the park, I send it out to be examined by a scientific team.
14. Standing in the light, you're so self-congratulatory. So I guess you have the right to be so masturbatory.
15. I'm hanging 'round the rock pile with my big old sledge hammer.

Comments are screened, so as to avoid any cases of "Hey, I knew that, but someone else got it first!" So go ahead and guess! I'll probably reveal the answers in about a week.

I had a dream last night that primarily involved a crazy building. At first it was basically just my grandparents' old house, and I think I was there with my family. Somehow, though, it also contained a bar up above the house part. I was considering playing pool there, but there was no one else to play it with. At one point, I needed to use the bathroom, and both of the ones in the house were occupied or something. So I went over to this other part of the building that had offices in it, and got a key from a security guard. Later, I remembered that I hadn't returned the key, and when I went back to where the guard had been, that place looked totally different. I believe there might have been an arcade there.

There's been a fair amount of crappiness going on in my life as of late, but I'm going to try to keep the rest of this entry positive. A few things I've been enjoying as of late include:

  • Speed run-throughs of video games
  • Skeptic Wiki. There are too many incomplete pages there, but there's some cool stuff to read. I found the information on the PiIllars of Enoch to be particularly interesting.
  • Flood myths from around the world
  • Nellie McKay's third album, Obligatory Villagers, which I just bought today. Considering that both of her first two albums were long, two-disc deals, it's weird how short this one is. Incidentally, the music store was playing the Mountain Goats, which is weird because I'd just been listening to a song of theirs in the car.
  • The prospect of new solo albums by Amanda Palmer and Jenny Lewis in September
  • Andrew Lang's different-colored Fairy Books
  • Slurpees. Well, okay, just one Slurpee, but it was the first one I'd had in a while, and I quite liked it.
