Friday Shuffle - Baby's First Shuffle Edition

First Friday shuffle for Bixente the iPod. He's only about half full and B did quite a bit of the filling so God only knows what we'll get.

You know the routine. Turn on your music maker. Set to shuffle. Say the first ten it coughs up.
  1. My Secret Flame - The Mavericks
  2. Mambo Italiano - Bette Midler
  3. I'm Happy Just to Dance With You - The Beatles
  4. All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down (featuring Flaco Jimenez) - The Mavericks
  5. I Want to Know - The Mavericks
  6. Stardust - Glenn Miller Orchestra
  7. Über sieben Brücken - Karat
  8. Mull of Kintyre - Paul McCartney
  9. Crowning of the King - Blackmore's Night
  10. Give Me Novacaine - Green Day
A trio of the Mavericks. Surely this means that Raul Malo wants me something fierce.

Other events of the day:

My birthday is over and this means only one thing: Winter is now nothing but a waste of my time so let cut over to the good stuff and skip on to May. Instead we here in the eastern part of Germany are waiting for the Arschkalt weather from Russia. -15°C and perhaps even colder. I have no idea what that is in farenheit but it's pretty damn cold whatever it is. Pretty damn cold and I'm a big pansy about such things. I'm going into survival mode and have it planned to go to the grocery store tomorrow to fill my empty cupboard and refrigerator shelves with staples like milk and bread and yogurt and chili con queso dip. Stands to reason that if you're going to shiver in the cold you should be able to fortify yourself with nachos. After that I'm going to be all about hunkering down in my warm apartment, vigerous tea drinking, movie watching and knitting.

I'm damn near one of those crazy survivalist types, aren't I?

Have a good weekend, all.

We've been having lows in the high 30's and I have taken to wearing my slippers all day long in the house.

Thanks so much for the hug Dixie. I needed it. Got to be pretty overwhelming the last few weeks.

I am taking my new speakers for my Ipod with me on the trip so I can listen to music when I am back in the room and not in the casino winning money. 8-)

Stay warm.

Hope it doesn't hit you guys too hard! We're expecting a cold spell but a bit less than that. I can remember once when it was -15C here and it was NOT fun. Forced me to wear a hat and get hat hair.

Gee, I almost feel guilty about this 80 degree weather we're having in Florida...

I applaud your decision about the nachos. When one is hunkering down, one needs yummy treats like that to boost one's spirits.

I have never understood, however, the bread and milk thing. I used to see it when I lived further north and a big blizzard was coming, and to an extent I see it here in Florida during hurricane season. The first thing to go from the shelves is bread and milk. Can't we live without bread and milk for a couple days?

Stock up on the real essentials first: snickers bars and twinkies!

And nachos.

Now, I never even know they had other songs apart from "Just Wanna Dance the Night Away" so see, it was worth the triumverate of Mavericks songs just to educate me.

Tell me, Dix, are you involved in this Germans knitting the longest ever football scarf thing? Saw it on 'Newsround': every country's flag, beautiful stitches, gorgeous colours. I was impressed, but then I love the World Cup.

If not, have you considered mounting a rival bid. If you get started straight away you could have enough miles knitted by the summer, couldn't you? I think they were up to thirty miles. Or was I dreaming?

I saw that scarf thing on TV here too! I'd have participated if I'd known it was going on.

No chance of me catching up with them. I've been knitting the same scarf for nearly a month now and it's finished length is supposed to be 70 inches. I am a painfully slow knitter (plus I've had to rip back four and five inches of work three times now).
