11. Cat's in the Cradle (Harry Chapin)
12. Only You (Yazoo)
13. Steppin' Out (Electric Light Orchestra)

23. So Far Away (Dire Straits)
24. Haya Nechmad (It's been nice) (Kaveret (aka Poogie))

27. Sunday Girl (Blondie) -- not one of my fave Blondie tunes
28. I Can't Get Next To You (Annie Lennox)

I wanna measure mine up too.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
(That goes for you when transcribing the lyrics, as well as for the guessers! Remember: embarassment is no excuse here.)

Whew 30 songs take forever. Here are
links to others who've done this recently:

What Video Game Character Are You? I am Mr Do.I am Mr Do.

I am sedentary by nature, enjoying passive entertainment, eating when the mood takes me, and playing with my food. I try to avoid conflict, but when I'm angered, I can be a devil - if you force me to fight, I will crush you. With apples. What Video Game Character Are You?

so true...

Getting There
Congratulations! You scored 18 Crottins!

You probably have one or two cheeses that you really like. You could
put together a competent cheese platter for a party. When you go into a
deli you are not afraid to ask for samples. Cheese for you is still a
hobby, and not yet an obsession... Your cheese sugjestion: Stilton.

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 61% on Crottins

You scored as Upper West Side/ Morningside Heights. The UWS may not be as tweedy and artsy as it was in the era of the Trillings and Podhoretzes (some argue that it has turned into the Upper East Side), but the neighborhood is still home to artists, actors, and writers, and not just in Jerry Seinfeld’s income bracket.

Morningside Heights is the area by Columbia university west of Harlem.

I've just discovered ljmaps. It's fun toy, go play.

Interesting to combine what I've been reading as the "locations" meme goes around with what I see on the world map. Several of my friendslisted people have already marked themselves... but clearly a while ago. =)

Think about what cities or towns you've lived in (not just visited) in your life, and post them in your journal:

Northampton, MA (since birth)
Jerusalem, Israel (year)
Waltham, MA (brandeis campus)
Watertown, MA (summer)
Canberra, Australia (semester plus a couple weeks)
Cambridge, MA (summer)
Arlington, MA (two years and counting down)
Northampton, MA (perhaps someday again...)

It's a very short quiz, but I like it because most of the questions allow me to pick multiple answers with checkboxes rather than only one with radio-buttons. And because it told me I'm Sculpture -- my actual favorite art form (after Kitchenware)!
results, with requisite big image )
Oo, I read all the answers and they include architecture. ¡Me gusta!
