Musical Mondays: Freedom

This week the theme for Musical Monday is "freedom." I've chosen "Free to Conquer" by subseven. Here ya go:


Kill the "you" that holds you back now
Just throw up - Just grow up
Let the blood flow on the ground now
Just throw up - Just grow up
Spit it out and breathe the air now
Just throw up - Just grow up
It's up to you to make the choice now
Just throw up - Just grow up

And we'll breathe the air
That we are free to conquer now

I'm sick and tired of being tired now
Let's get up - Let's wake up
Move your legs and comb your hair now
Let's get up - Let's wake up
Set your mind to do great things now
Let's get up - Let's wake up
It's our chance to make things right now
Let's get up - Let's wake up


  1.  Nevertheless by Mumsdollar

Another Blogthings Friday...

You Have a Fairly Strong Willpower

Temptation doesn't get the better of you all that often.

If you set your mind on a goal, you'll do your best to achieve it.

And while you don't have a perfect record with willpower, you do okay.

If you fall off the wagon with something, you're usually not off the wagon for long.

What Your Sunglasses Say About You

You are down to earth, stable, and practical.

You see the world as it is. You accept facts easily.

You need to be shaded from overly dramatic and problem prone people.

You feel sunniest when things are calm and peaceful

You Are Cheerios

Like other Cheerios eaters, you want to be a responsible adult.

But you can't help but still be a kid at heart!

You try to make good decisions. You're a clean cut, conscientious person.

You're the type of person who would never skip breakfast.

Part of you thinks that breakfast is too important to miss...

But a bigger part of you knows it's too fun to miss!

Friday Quizzes: Blogthings again!

What can I say? I love this site!

You Are a Citizen of the World

Whenever possible, you try to pay attention to what's going on in the world.

You are truly interested in all people and countries, no matter how far away from you they are.

You try to learn, travel, and understand.

Being a part of the whole world is important to you, and you're always working to be more internationally focused.

You Are a Summer Person

You are energetic, outgoing, and active.

You love to be out and about... hanging out with friends or getting things done.

Summer is the perfect time for you to be as hyper as you want to be.

In fact, during the rest of the year you feel half-asleep!

You Are Salsa

You are an extremely outgoing and vivacious person.

You are quite tolerant and open minded. You rather accept people than judge them.

Adventurous and unpredictable, you have the reputation of a daredevil.

Your taste in food leans toward very spicy and exotic dishes.

Whether it's thai food or an extra spicy mexican meal, you're into the hot flavors.

You get along with hot sauce personalities. Everyone else, not so much.

You Are a One Piece Swimsuit

You are a bit conservative and traditional.

And you are not at the beach to put your body on display!

You are a low maintenance person. You like to look good, but you're not vain.

Your taste tends to be sophisticated. You always opt for classy over trashy.

Musical Mondays: Beach

Sorry for the late post this week!
This week's theme is "beach" and my first thought of course was the Beach Boys, but since I just used them a couple of weeks ago, I decided to go with something else. Now then, those of you who know me know that I don't drink, so for me to pick a tune that's basically about alcohol is a bit out of character. My defense is that I loved "Margaritaville" long before I was old enough to understand any of the lyrics or to know what a Margarita is. So here ya go: (Apologies for the quality of the video, it was the best one I could find.) Lyrics: Jimmy Buffett Lyrics Margaritaville Lyrics Pandora's Picks:
  1. Barometer Soup by Jimmy Buffett
  2. Silp Slidin' Away by Paul Simon
  3. Best Of My Love by The Eagles
  4. I'll Have To Say I Love You In A Song by Jim Croce
  5. Cheeseburger In Paradise by Jimmy Buffett
Odd that there are so many songs on this list from the original artist, no? Anyway, if you're playing along this week, don't forget to add your link to the list below!

Musical Mondays: USA

This week's theme is USA and I decided to go with a song that discusses freedom.  Of course, the freedom talked about in this song is not the freedom granted by any nation or government, but rather the freedom of life in Jesus Christ.  So here, for your enjoyment, is Skillet's "Live Free or Let Me Die" (complete with lyrics, thanks to youtube!). 

Here's Pandora's take: (again, based on the artist because they did not have the song listed)
  1. Push Me Away by Kutless
  2. Awake by Seventh Day Slumber
  3. The Flame In All Of Us by Thousand Foot Krutch
  4. Away From The Sun by 3 Doors Down
  5. Stay by Jeremy Camp

Friday Quizzes: How Anti-Social Are You?

Borrowed this one from Mr. President...

Your result for How anti-social are you?...


You're definitely exhibiting strong anti-social behaviors. You probably have 2-3 very good friends and enjoy your alone time. Vintage records and fine scotch are some of the better qualities, heavy leaning towards nerd territory and virgin-dom are the worst.
