from Don't Fade to Don't Know What You've Got

Day 209, Session 70:
When/Where: Wednesday January 17th - Heading from home to the office.
First song: Don't Fade by Toad the Wet Sprocket
Last full song: Don't Know What You Got by Cinderella
Progress: 980-987 of 4802
Total Songs Heard: 837

8 more tracks telling me things I should not do:

Fade - When I ran track in 8th grade they put me in the distance events, where my lack of speed in the sprints was well hidden by my lack of endurance. I would routinely begin to fade with about a lap and a half to go.

Forget to breathe - This has, luckily, never been a problem. When I was younger I would often marvel at the things your body will unconsciously do for you. I would sometimes sit and think about how difficult it would be to live if you had to think "breathe" every time you wanted to draw a breath or "beat" every time you wanted your heart to pump. When I was really bored (often at church) I would try to see how long I could keep these two thoughts going. I would have died pretty quickly.

Give that girl a gun - I have never handed a gun to a girl.

Give up - I give up constantly. I think this goes hand in hand with being a Philadelphia sports fan. Knowing you're never ever going to win means sometimes it's just a lot easier to give up. There are a few things I will probably never give up: Smoking, since I never plan to start, and drinking, cause I loves me some beer.

Give up on me - I don't believe anyone has ever asked me to not give up on them.

Go - Oh, I've gone... and then she started crying, so I turned around and went back.

Go Away - I went away for college. That seemed to work out.

Know what you got - Cinderella. Man, who doesn't love Cinderella? (Seriously, I was very happy to hear this. Late one night I decided it would be a good idea to download "Metal Ballads." All 4 volumes! I gotta tell you, most of these metal ballads suck! I definitely should have gone with "Monster Ballads." But this song... this song is good.

On a completely unrelated note, if you're reading this blog, you should know that we're having people over tomorrow night for beer and burgers. You're invited.

If only I could somehow get to Chicago, maybe on a giant metallic, winged vehicle that could carry multiple people through the air...

Oh well. Until they invent such whimsical devices (or some magical means for me to pay for the airfare), I'll have to keep dreaming by the ocean and miss out on the burgers, beer and giant tv.

Enjoy them! And don't give up on me.

hopefully, i can get in on the burger action a little late.... the beer, alas, will have to wait- although when the time comes, i'll take a nice cold pinot grigio instead (or a good margarita).

The burgers were great. The beer was flowing. Wii boxing made everyone tired. A good time was had by all.

We did not however have the ocean, much to the disappointment of everyone.
