Day 11: Put your MP3 player on shuffle and write ten songs that pop up

My iPod is almost always on shuffle and I often just let iTunes fill it up randomly; I like variety. I did preload with more Broadway than usual lately, though. Ok, let me press shuffle again and see what comes up.

1. "Whataya Want from Me" by Adam Lambert
2. "G.U.Y." by Lady Gaga
3."Swallowed In the Sea" by Coldplay (I adore Coldplay and this is one of my favorite songs. Good job, shuffle. Now I have to listen to the whole song before I move on.)
4. "Golden Slumbers" by the Beatles (I can no longer listen to Abbey Road without thinking of the awesome Scooby Road - vids based on Buffy set to the whole album).
5. "Hometown Glory" by Adele
6. "Teenage Dream: Acoustic Version" by Glee Cast (awesome choice. I do have a lot of Glee Music - mostly by Darren Criss. This is from the Break-Up episode so this is bittersweet)
7. "I Know Him So Well" by Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson (from musical 'Chess', on my Broadway Greatest Love Songs CD)
8. "The Garden" by Mirah (This was a memorable SYTYCD dance - I think first Sonya one and I bought the song right after.)
9. "Koka Kola" by The Clash
10."Be Like the Bluebird" from Anything Goes 2003 London Cast album

30 Days of Fanfic Meme

11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

I guess I tend to write romantic stories the most. I like pairings. Also friendship stories. Usually in canon but I have been writing a lot of AUs lately. I have written a few fairy tales for a pairing too.


It was just Tanya and I all day today; Bear is away at work. And it has been a very very long day full of toddler misbehavior and mischief trying my patience. She started early by waking me up at 4:30 and then tossing and turning until 6, so I didn't get much sleep.

By 7:30 she refused to finish her quinoa cereal, threw the empty cup of milk on the floor and broke off the handle, managed to get part of her pajama into the potty full of poo, and throw a brush in the same place - I didn't even have breakfast yet.

After morning playground, she usually naps in the stroller but she thought babbling and throwing her pacifier away would be more fun. By the time we got home for our nap she was so tired she napped for two hours. Which would be great but then she woke up too late to be sleepy later for second nap. And she thought that the best game today would be throwing food on the floor and watching Mama berate her - that was really funny. And refuse to eat carrots and potato I made for her.

I'm so going to watching TV right now; I need a sanity break. Today has been the exception but it has been particularly trying. Mostly because it's just me all day and night. At least tomorrow my parents are going to come over in the afternoon so I will get a break.

Tanya usually understands Russian better than English. I can tell her to go put the hedgehog toy in her toy stroller without pointing to anything and she goes and does it. But she is starting to vocalize and some of her "words" are in English, probably because they are easier for her to say. "Ap" for apple and "br" for bread. She understands the Russian words for apple and bread but uses the English for speaking. But she does vocalize in Russian too "baba" and "deda" and "lyalya". This is going to be fascinating to observe.
