Let's call today: 'Monday, 15 May 2006'

pirategirl wrote in the notebook:
Something with music
Bored. Stealing from carly who stole it from etc etc etc

1. How does the world see me?
It's Okay That I'm This Way - Jeff Foxworthy
'I don't go to fancy restaurants, I don't understand your art.
...You might not like the way I think, it's okay that I'm this way.'

I'm cool with that.

2. Will I have a happy life?
Mess - Ben Folds Five
'And I don't believe in God, so I can't be saved.
All alone as I've learned to be
In this mess I have made.'


3. What do my friends really think of me?
Get The Party Started - by Pink but an instrumental version.
The life of the party but not in a pinky girly kinda way??

4. What do people secretly think of me?
Bandits - Stray & Avaste
'The sun keeps shining on this happy home and they both keep smiling to the world below.
And it's all for nothing but who would know?'

not sure about that.

5. How can I make myself happy?
I Shall Be Released - Jeff Buckley
I see my life come shining from the west to the east.
Any day now, any way now, I shall be released.

Seems a little irrelevant, but still a good song.

6. What should I do with my life?
Unforgiven (Last Goodbye) - Jeff Buckley
'Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
Burning clues into this heart of mine
Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories
Offer signs that it's over... it's over'

Just get over people?
*shrug* but I am.
cool, tick that one from the list then.

7. Will I ever have children?
Night Flight - Jeff Buckley
Meet in the morning. Won't you meet me in the middle of the night?
Morning time is coming, don't it make you feel alright?

wow going hardcore on the Buckley tonight, but doesnt sound like children are on the horizon if I'm meeting people in the middle of the night and feelin' alight. Hehehe.

8. What is some good advice for me?
They weren't there - Missy Higgins
'They weren't taken by the hand and led through fields of naked land
where any preconceived ideas were blown away. So i couldnt say no.'

Those instructions are hardly clear Missy.

9. How will I be remembered?
That's Me Trying - William Shatner & Ben Folds
'Years of silence; not enough. Who could blame us giving up? Above the quiet there's a buzz; that's me tryin.'
Ha... yeah probably, I like to think I'll be remembered as something more significant, but I'll probably just be a buzz above the quiet.

10. What is my signature dancing song?
Champagne Supernova - Ben Folds Five (Oasis cover)
'Someday you will find me caught beneath the landslide, in a champagne supernova in the sky'
Hardly a dancing song...

11. What do I think my current theme song is?
All I'm Saying - Hot Tips
'Saying I hate you is probably an exaggeration of the truth'
Ha, yeah I'll take that one.

12. What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Losing My Religion - REM
'Thats me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight losing my religion. Trying to keep a view and I don't know if I can do it'

13. What song will play at my funeral?
The Special Two - Missy Higgins
'When you're young you have this image of your life, that you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife. And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross, and if you happen to you'll wake completely lost'

14. What type of men/women do you like?
Dont Come Around - Hot Tips
'You never expect it of the ones you're close to, but we're invincible until one of us falls down...
Don't come around, none of us want you. Don't come around, none of us will take you. Don't come around, we won't host you. Don't come around, don't come around.
Choose somebody else who will deserve it; no one deserves it. Any of it. Affecting everyone we know; an awkward silence, an emptiness no words can fill.

Struck a chord there...

15. What is my day going to be like?
F*** You - Avaste
'If you don't like my music well you don't need to play it.
If you don't like my singing well I don't need to say it:
Fuck you.
If you don't like it, fuck you.
It's just the same old thing just running through my head.
The same old song I'll be singing 'til I'm dead
So fuck you. If you don't like it, fuck you.'
