stuff and things

I've been feeling a bit antisocial, which is why I haven't been on here much. I know I have questions to answer (and to ask, for some of you,) and I promise you, I'm still working on all that. I haven't forgotten, really.

This weekend was a bit of a washout -- spent most of Saturday sittingin the auto shop getting my brakes replaced, so that was boring. And expensive. But hey, it had to be done.

Sunday was the DAS meeting, which was actually really fun -- I got to see Castle of Cagliostro, which I haven't ever seen before (and as a Miyazaki fan, this lack is a bit derelict on my part), plus a couple episodes of Cromartie High School (which I will definitely have to check out more of).

And now, to offset the serious business from my last entry, have a meme. It's another music meme, but this one has a little twist to it:

-Open your iTunes or equivalent thereof, and put the playlist on random mode.
-Put down the first line that DOES NOT contain the title of the first 20 songs, no matter how cheesy, embarrassing or obscure.
-In the comments, give the next consecutive lines of the songs until one containing the song's title has been included (if the given line occurs more than once, assume it is the first occurrence), and then identify the song by title and artist.
-Use of search engines and lyric sites is considered illegal.
-Commenters update their Livejournals with these rules and their song lyrics.
