I got an email from Bionic Teacher asking me to answer the meme that had been passed on to him. So after following in his footsteps and reading up on meme in the wikipedia, I decided to give it a whirl. I’m really not into chain letters or mass forwards, I am fascinated by the idea of “language as a virus”. So in the spirit of spreading virii (the good kind of virii), here’s my answers to the meme.

First 5 Songs in Shuffle of Entire Music Library
Ain’t That a Kick in the Head – Dean Martin
Best of my Love – The Eagles
Without Me – Eminem
Fingertips: Blue Thing – They Might Be Giants
Two of Us – Aimee Mann & Michael Penn (cover of the Beatles Song from the I Am Sam soundtrack)

An interesting mix to say the least.

Current Book You are Reading (or lightly leafing through)

As you might have guessed from the previous question, I’m a bit of a Star Wars nut, so my last movie in a theater was obviously Revenge of the Sith. I’ve seen it three times in the theater in the last week, in Mt. Prospect, in Berwyn and in beautiful Chicago Illinois.
