This meme looks like too much fun; but it also looks hazardous because it is likely to out some of the biggest guilty pleasures sitting on my iPod right now. This particular meme originated over at A Complete Thought and I read a modified version of it over at Fiddledeedee. DeeDee altered hers, but I'm not nearly as clever as she is so I'm sticking with the original.
1. Put your iPod (or MP3 player) on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button for your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS.
4. Tag some Moms you admire who could use a laugh and a song.

WHAT WILL YOUR MOM OF THE YEAR CERTIFICATE SAY?

Just for kicks I clicked to the next song to see what would pop up... "Whiskey Girl" by Tobey Keith. Interesting.
Also interesting is the fact that I had 4 John Williams, 2 Backyardigans, 2 Veggie Tales and 2 Hairsprays, but no Def Leppard, Air Supply, Lita Ford or Meat Loaf. That's not much of a shuffle mechanism if you ask me.
At this point I'm supposed to start tagging moms, but I'm putting out a collective "Tag, you're it!" And now I'm going to lurk around to find out what you guys are listening to when nobody else is listening.
