Random Random Eleven

The gauntlet is thrown! Elisson hath challenged me to do a Random Random Ten, and I hath answered. But forsooth...I am doing a Random Random ELEVEN! Ha!

What are you listening to right now? Obviously, my computer is in a semi-electronic mood today.

1. Ben Folds - "Prison Food"
2. Paperboy - "Ditty"
3. Mirwais - "Disco Science"
4. Kid Koala - "Flu Season"
5. Brazilian Girls - "Long"
6. Tori Amos - "China"
7. Faithless - "If Lovin' You Is Wrong"
8. Chicago - "Beginnings"
9. Better Than Ezra - "Good"
10. Ray Charles - "A Fool For You"
11. Stephen Speaks - "Out Of My League"

I just love this song:

It's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away
and the feeling that I'm falling further in love
makes me shiver
but in a good way

All the times I have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair,
as she purses her lips, bats her eyes,
and she plays with me,
sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say

'Cause I love her with all that I am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
'cause she's all that I see and she's all that I need
and I'm out of my league once again

It's a masterful melody
when she calls out my name to me
As the world spins around her, she laughs, rolls her eyes
and I feel like I'm falling but it's no surprise 'cause

I love her with all that I am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
'cause it's frightening to be
swimming in this strange sea
but I'd rather be here than on land

Yes, she's all that I see and she's all that I need
and I'm out of my league once again

Wednesday Random Ten

Inspired by Elisson, who does a Friday Random Ten, I decided to do a Wednesday Random Ten.

Unlike Elisson, I'm not listening on a Little White Choon Box, but rather Windows Media Player on my PC. Here are the last ten songs in my shuffle!

1. Pachelbel - "Canon in D"
2. The Proclaimers - "I'm On My Way"
3. Led Zeppelin - "Kashmir"
4. Waldeck - "This Isn't Maybe"
5. Chicago - "Old Days"
6. Rihanna - "Pon de Replay"
7. Led Zeppelin - "Immigrant Song"
8. Panjabi MC - "Mundian to Bach Ke"
9. Crowded House - "Something So Strong"
10. Simply Red - "Holding Back The Years"

Right now, I've got the headphones on and the computer pointed to KFI 640 AM out of Los Angeles, listening to Dr. Laura Schlessinger.

It's Wednesday afternoon. What are you listening to?

What does honesty mean to you?

JKrew poses an inneresting question on his blog today: What does honesty mean to you? Read his post here.

My response in his comments section:

In my opinion, white lies are never white. They're always grey, and inevitably can turn black on you.

Honesty is the best policy, with few exceptions. I've found over the past few years that if I just own it, the consequences are much better than if I fudge it. I've seen proof of that from my boss at work- he appreciates that I can bring my mistake to his attention, and show that I'm already on top of a fix. He now trusts me much more than some others here.

I told my husband for the first time today that I shoplifted beads from a craft store when I was younger. He had always been completely honest with me about his theft of a video game at age 12...I figured I should display the same soul-baring. He is my spouse and whatnot, not to mention my Baby Daddy.

The person you share your bed with should also get full benefit of your heart and soul.

What's your take? Are white lies harmless? Does the maxim "Everyone does it" mean something is okay?

Our baby's first picture

I had my first OB appointment this morning, which included an ultrasound! I got to see our tiny baby's heart beating...very surreal. I guess some people would say that moment cemented the idea of pregnancy, but I already felt it.
