Soundtrack of My Life

Well, we're inching in on a whole new year, as the moments are simply fleeting past... So before you know it the year will be 2007. Go ahead and get a jump on it, practice writing it and all. In my experience, we barely get used to the current year on the ole check books before we have to start all over. At any rate, I ran across a link: 10 Must-Do Adventures for 2007. Hmmm, not that I would have the extra cash floating around to try any of these, but if I could, I think I would give #9 a try (odd enough as 9 is my favorite number).

#9 "Scare Yourself Silly: 2007 marks the 110th anniversary of Bram Stoker's Dracula. To celebrate, the Transylvania Live tour company invites intrepid travelers to spend Halloween in Transylvania with Vlad the Impaler. The tour travels along narrow winding roads deep in the Carpathian Mountains, plunging into the heart of Transylvania. The package includes tours of legendary Transylvanian castles, a Halloween Party in Sighisoara (Dracula's birth place), instruction in the correct way to make a vampire-killing stake, and a visit with Dracula's descendants. Survivor's Certificates are handed out at the farewell dinner that concludes the tour. The 10-day trip is priced at $1,884 (US), per person. Price includes accommodations, meals, activities but not airfare. "

Sounds pretty cool... I'm sure the list has something for everyone's fantasy--or reality, if you are able... so check it out.

Last night, I was dabbling around wasting a bit more valuable time, and I ran across a random blog where the girl created a 'Soundtrack of her Life'. I had been thinking on this myself, just in the idea that if my life had a soundtrack, what music might I compile to go on it... I love soundtracks... and music, so I gave it a couple of shots... The way I did it, was to list some categories/questions and then put my Media Player (insert mp3 player, other) on "Shuffle", and then try to use each random song in the field next to my 'category'. I'm sharing the first one, which I didn't quite tweak as much (cheat if you will), and it was a bit more whacky... Here is one result. I give you the Soundtrack to:

"The Aunt Jackie Diaries" :)
Waking Up: The Most Wonderful Day of the Year (standard christmas)
Early Childhood: With My Own Two Hands (Jack Johnson/Ben Harper)
First Day at School: Bad Connection (Yaz/Yazoo)
Falling In Love: Whole Lotta Rosie (AC/DC)
Fight Song: Broken (Jack Johnson and Friends)
Breaking Up: I Stole Your Love (Kiss)
Prom: Waiting for A Girl Like You (Foreigner)
Life: No Rainbow (Deadboy & The Elephant Men)
Mental Breakdown: Winter Kills (Yaz)
Driving: Got To Choose (Kiss)
Flashback: Holding Out For A Hero (Bonnie Tyler)
Wedding: Wrong Turn (Jack Johnson & Friends)
Birth of Child: Poor Twisted Me (Metallica)
Final Battle: Fire (Jimi Hendrix)
Death Scene: That's The Way I Wanna Rock-n-Roll (AC/DC)
Funeral Song: I Would Have Loved You Anyway (Trisha Yearwood)
End Credit: What the Stars Have Eaten (Dead Boy & The Elephant Men)

(remember this was mostly random & I mainly used her category ideas, but it was indeed from my media collection hehe--no making fun!!! Plus i'll probably do this 100 times before I get one I am 100% satisfied with. It's just for fun though)

Heyy!! I said no making fun. And I can't help I'm ecclectic. That was a song that I liked when I was an adolescent girl and had a big crush on our neighbor guy who was in high school... I always liked older guys until I reached their age, then they steadily got younger!! Cradle Robber me!! :)
