Wasting time waiting on a call from the mechanic. Coffee in hand. Music Meme Time. Random questions!

Here is something I don't think I've done on Coffee Talking in about 7 or 8 years.  Since it used to be a "Mom Blog" (although honestly I had a 50-50 readership with just as many guys reading as women and some didn't have any kids at all).  Because I didn't really just talk about my kids.  It was friends chatting over morning coffee on my blog every morning - anything goes.

But anyway!  Time for a random meme because I'm sitting here babysitting my phone very closely so I don't miss the phone call from my mechanics - who should have called me yesterday - and still haven't called today.  It's 5:pm on Friday evening - they close at 6:pm.  If they don't get done with my truck and call me SOON then my truck is going to be held hostage by them all weekend as they are closed Saturday and Sundays.

I've got a cup of coffee in hand.  No dinner has to be made for another hour.  Everyone gone for now but me.  BORED and waiting on the mechanics.  So, I typed the words 20 question meme into Google to see what would pop up.  Apparently there are sites that discuss and list nothing but meme ideas.  Who knew?

Apparent meme's are aimed towards 13 year olds as almost ALL of them had something to do with school, classes, teachers and such.  I'm sure there are 'adult' memes out there too if I looked.  But... maybe we just don't need to 'go there' on this blog right now anyway.  Ha.  I don't know you that well.

Since I like music, and this was one of the first ones I saw - I decided this would be the one.


1. a song from the year you were born
Let It Be


2. a song that reminds you of school
1985


3. a song tied to a specific moment in your life
Hold On


4. a song that is not sung in your native language
Waterloo (Swedish Version)


5. a song over 5 minutes long
The Magic Flute (Overture)

Hmm. Not sure but I think the Beatles have a couple of them.

Die Walkure: Ride Of The Valkyries


8. a classical piece
Die Walkure: Ride of the Valkyries and The Magic Flute would both qualify here

9. a song with no percussion
Penis Envy


10. something you’ve heard performed live

11. something you’d give ANYTHING to hear performed live
Eh. Not much for crowds and I'm good with Youtube.  

12. a song by an artist who’s from where you’re from (town/city/state/country)
Seriously?  Did a 12 year old from Los Angeles write this question? I may find someone from my state but tiny little towns in the heartland aren't known for pumping out big name celebrities.

When You Say Nothing At All


14. a song made suddenly awful because of a special someone
Oh Sherrie
