You may or may not have been expecting a post on tattoos here today. If not, great! You're none the wiser. If you were, ah, I guess you're probably looking for an excuse. Ok, problem number one. When you decide to do a post and give people a lot of time to send you stuff, sometimes you get busy with other stuff and forget to maybe amalgamate all the stuff that they sent until the last moment and then you're all, shit, I don't have time to do this tonight, why do I come up with these stupid ideas? Problem number two, my biggest tattoo is on my back and I can't really take a picture of it which means I have to remember to ask Supreme Leader to do it for me. Three year olds are unreliable photographers.
So after I got my kids to bed tonight, watched my man-crush David Boreanaz on Bones... wait, did I just say that? Whatever. I don't want to pick out curtains with him, just, you know, be like bestest friends. Where was I going? Right, no blog for today. So I get the kids to bed and start washing the dishes when I remember that the buzzer went on the dryer and all the clothes are getting wrinkly. Computer is in the same room so might as well check email, etc and hey! Steenky posted. So I start reading her post while my dish water slowly cools and she posted a Spin and hey! I haven't done this weeks Spin yet. Or last weeks. Or the week before. Shut up. So. So here we are, two paragraphs in and I still haven't got to anything yet. Or any pictures. Here.
No, he's ok. I've been trying to get him to do this.
He just needs a little work. This isn't going anywhere, is it? Ok, here's the last ten songs that played on iTunes while I was writing this and mostly surfing other people's blogs.

5. Obtener Un Si - Shakira
6. The House That Jack Built - Aretha Franklin
7. Hoppipolla - Sigur Rós
8. St Germain - Vanessa Paradis
9. Breathe - Telepopmusik
10. Sullivan Street (live) - Counting Crows
This is kinda stolen from Robin at Cinnamon & Honey. She does a monthly (I think it's monthly) post called iPod 10 which I've been meaning to copy for awhile. Her's are much better though because she writes something about the songs and she's an actual writer which is always a plus. I bet she wouldn't have stared at "her's" as long as I did wondering whether that apostrophe is supposed to be there or not or should she go upstairs and face the mockery and derision of her spouse by asking and then wondering if she's still awake and damn, is it really almost midnight? She probably wouldn't have used 'mockery' and 'derision' together in the same sentence either since they pretty much mean the same thing, but maybe I just liked the way they sounded. What's wrong with that?
Alright, time to drive a stake through this thing. Oh, and I guess I should mention Jennifer at Sprite's Keeper since she's Queen Spinner and is probably wondering why she ever said, 'sure, guys are welcome to spin too.' She is also the most wonderfullest person I've never actually meant, is an amazing mother and looks HAWT in an Ikea mirror and not pregnant AT ALL.
Last song before I publish and go to bed? Trooper, Raise A Little Hell.
