A thought for those of us who like music that is less... mainstream.

If your favorite band were picked to play the Superbowl Halftime Show, which 4 songs would you hope that they played?

To start us off, I'll open with Gaelic Storm, with following songs:
1. Johnny Tarr
2. Punjab Paddy
3. Courtin' in the Kitchen
4. What's the Rumpus

Nabbed from [ profile] levana_b. Have fun!

1. What would you conceivably use as a pseudonym?
Probably something involving my middle name - Melissa. I've always loved that name, and would love to have a chance to use it. Melissa Rayne, perhaps. It has a nice ring.

2. If you could be in a movie, which would it be and what character would you play?
I would love to play Thursday Next, if we're going for movies that haven't actually been made yet. If it has to be a movie that's already been filmed, then Yvaine, the star in Stardust, only I would have played her like she is written in the book (also I don't have that ethereal quality that Claire Danes has in abundance). I do however, have a deep love for a boy who often seems a bit silly to others.

3. Are you cookie racist (like vanilla over chocolate, etc.)?
I have a few favorites, and there are some cookies I won't eat - chocolate sandwich cookies that aren't Oreos, anything with coconut that tastes like it has it. I actually crave vanilla sandwich cookies now and again. For those rolling on the floor laughing, I also crave gingersnaps, and have been known to consume a whole bag.

4. Would you rather drink vinegar or go bungee jumping?
Erm, neither actually. Although balsamic dressing is one of the best things to ever meet lettuce. I suppose, if the quantity was small enough, the vinegar. If not, I guess I could try the bungee jumping.

5. What's one magical skill you wished you had?
A bit of kitchen magic - the ability to know how much of something you need or have without actually looking at it. This would be incredibly helpful when attacking a knitting pattern without the exact yarn it calls for, at the precise gauge the designer and test knitter had. See, I managed to sneak knitting into a totally non-related post!

Shana Tovah u'Metukah (a good and sweet new year) to all my friends, and anyone else that happens upon the blog. K'tivah v'Chatimah Tovah (may you be inscribed and sealed with a favorable judgment), and may all your prayers for the year be answered.

That means memes are afoot!

Comment to this post and I will:

1. Tell you why I added you to my friends list and/or why I keep you there.
2. Associate you with something. A song, a color, a work of art, a character in a play, a piece of fruit. SOMETHING.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you/us.
5. Associate you with a character from a book or a film.
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you. (Or else I'll just ask a random question. I reserve that right.)
7. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

In return, you must spread this disease in your LJ.

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Apprentice. You've got the basics down pat and you might just be falling in love with this hobby. Big needles, funky yarns and simple shapes are the name of the game, but it doesn't mean you don't experiment a bit, here and there. As an apprentice, you probably fall back on other people to get you through those rough spots, and if you don't know anyone who knits, you probably have a few books or online sources to tap.

Ok, tagged by [ profile] levana_b on this one. If I tag you, you have to write 5 weird habits in a post, and tag 5 more people.

5 Weird Habits -
1. I fall alseep to audiobooks
2. I believe that life ought to have a soundtrack, and ensure this by listening to my cd player whenever I go anywhere (if it isn't Shabbat)
3. I talk to inanimate objects on a regular basis. Ok, talk is the wrong word, scream is probably more appropriate. Often I threaten them with percussive maintenance.
4. I mix my sheets
5. I sing Tom Lehrer in the shower

You're the Pink Panther!
You're the Pink Panther. Suave and sophisticated,
you enjoy your superiority and your natural
grace. Though to some, this attitude makes you
appear arrogant, most people are attracted by
it rather than turned off. You especially enjoy
being in the social spotlight. It just doesn't
get any better than this.

Which famous feline are you?

You Know You're From Rochester, NY When...

The only thing at the annual May Lilac Festival is snow.

The worst four-letter word you could say is "Fuji".

You can't swim at the beach.

You thought that you had figured out that alternate-parking thing, but wind up with a ticket anyway.

Toronto is about 70 miles away, but it takes four hours to get there.

The name "Greater Rochester International Airport" is bigger than the airport itself.

There's an 800 number to report a pothole in the road.

You know that a "Can of Worms" is not something that you take fishing.

Your baby's first word is "Wegmans".

You ask lifetime residents where the George Eastman House is, but they don't know either.

In a city where it snows at least 90 inches a year, they build a new sports stadium with no roof on it.

It can be 70 degrees one day, below freezing the next, and you think nothing of it.

Your mother is buying outfits to wear to Wegmans.

Your low-fat diet is never low enough to exclude an Abbott's custard.

You order a white hot and a pop, and the counterman knows what you're talking about.

You can travel from Egypt to Greece in about a half-hour by car.

D&C is a newspaper, not a medical procedure.

There are no hamburgers, only ground steak.

You can go to any mall on a Saturday and see at least 5 people you either work with, went to school with or dated.

A musical comes to town 10 years after its Broadway premier and the entire town goes nuts!

You awaken from a deep sleep, look at the clock and see that it's 6:00, but you have no idea whether it's AM or PM.

When 18+ inches of snow falls overnight, but you never thought of NOT going to work.

You are perplexed when friends from other cities come to visit and want to "see the sights".

In winter if the temperature hits 45 degrees and the sun comes out, people walk around downtown wearing shades and no jackets.

There are places at the poles that seem to get more sunlight during the winter months than we do.

Wegmans is somewhere to go on a Friday night, for entertainment.

You know who Vinnie and Angelo are.

You define summer as three months of bad sledding.

You think that people from Pennsylvania have an accent.

Halloween is snowed out with great regularity.

You have experienced frostbite and sunburn in the same week.

Half the change in your pocket is Canadian, eh.

Your idea of a seven-course meal is a six pack of Genny and a bucket of Buffalo wings.

You believe that "down south" means Maryland.

Your snowmobile, lawn mower and fishing boat all have big block Chevy engines.

You can compare Nick Tahoe's garbage plate to at least 3 other knock-offs in competing restaurants.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Rochester, NY.

Somehow, no matter what I do, I alsways wind up as this one...

You're a Magical Girl!

You're sugar-hyped, caffeine-hyped, and permanently genki-er than a whole busload of Disney characters on crack. You eat too much, you're a total klutz, and somehow this makes you an ideal candidate for saving the world. If you're really unlucky, you get to get naked in an embarrassing transformation sequence in every single episode, with only a few sparkles and pastel blobs to cover your dignity.

Which generic anime character are you?
