Sunday Social and Sunday Funnies 6/24



Sunday Social


This week's Sunday Social was tough.  It took me awhile to come up with this stuff.  As in, I thought about it everyday this week at least a little bit.  Clearly, I need a job. 

What is your all-time favorite song?
 I have a soft spot for the songs that were popular in 2008.  That was a big year for me.   Graduating college, meeting Scott, getting ready to get engaged, etc.  
To me, music ties directly to memories.  I have too many good memories to pick one favorite.
And clearly, I can't even answer a simple question.

What is your favorite singer/band?
I'm, by nature, a country music person.  I talked about that here and here.
I also like Maroon 5 ("Payphone" had me in tears yesterday.  Weird.), The Spill Canvas, and I listened to Taking Back Sunday all the way through college. 
 Scott introduced me to Brand New.  He knew I was a Taking Back Sunday fan*, but was surprised I'd never heard of Brand New.
I listened to this song pretty obsessively for awhile.  Scott played it for me on our first date.

This was my favorite song to run to (back in 2008 when I thought people could re-train themselves to run).


What is your theme song/song that best describes your life?
This may make me sound like a total lush:  Blake Shelton's "Drink on It".  If I think back, I spent a lot of great nights sitting in bar stools.  Whether it was with friends in college, co-workers, or, eventually, Scott.  Granted, I was often also behind the bar, but some of those nights were pretty great too.  So while I think it's really difficult to pick a song to define the entire span of your life, this one fits pretty well for my early twenties.
Sorry, mom.



What is your favorite road-trip music?
I'd say country music.  But I've also been known to listen to Brand New for 3 hours in the car.  One time Scott asked me to turn it off.  So who's to say?

What songs put you in a good mood?
Lately, it's been "Tell Me How You Like It" by Florida Georgia Line.  It's the country boy thing.

What song are you embarrassed to admit that you love?
I love the "Cupid Shuffle".  LOVE IT.  Anytime, anywhere.

 

*Funny story about that:  Scott went to a TBS concert that I had wanted to go to in college.  I couldn't make it work because it was a school night and I was student-teaching and we had an evening class or something.  His then-girlfriend stood him up and he was left with an extra ticket.  Clearly she was indeed as retardly ridiculous as she sounds.

Few things freak me out as much as stuck rings


I saw this and thought, "Good Lord, cousins can marry in Alaska.  Now it makes sense."  Then I thought, "If Alaska was really where they have it on the map, I'd be a much happier individual."


Yes, Dwight.  We do.

It's not so much that you're having a wedding.  It's that you're having 7 showers and 4 bachelorette parties.  Super duper.


And, the weekly KStew bashing...

I work really hard looking for inventive KStew stuff on Pinterest.  It's, like, a summertime job.

  6. I will never tire of Payphone - although I do not understand the video for the life of me. It's like Adam Levine just threw a bunch of stuff he had been dying to do into four minutes.

  7. bahahaha the kristen stewart picture is awesome.
    I had no idea cousins could marry in Alaska....things that make you go 'buhhh"
    and finally, I really love Maroon 5. Adam Levine is a rare pop singer who can actually sing well.

    Happy Sunday :)

  12. I FREAK out when a ring gets stuck on my finger too!

    I also bash KStew on an almost daily basis. Call me a hater, she just bugs the crap out of me. LOL
