I Miss You

1) In this song, Bjork knows what she's looking for in a mate, she just hasn't met him yet. If you are/were still looking for The One, what two qualities would you hope he/she possessed? patience and a sense of humor

2) The lyrics ask if you believe "that a dream can come true." Do you believe that dreams come true if you wish hard enough? well... not really

3) Bjork turns 50 this year. Do you treat "milestone" birthdays differently? Or to you, is your age just a number?
milestones are major

4) Bjork was always highly musical. At the tender age of 6 she began studying classical piano and flute. Sam is impressed because at the age of 6, she was still trying to master tying her shoes. Do you consider yourself musical? I am musical but I don't enjoy performing

5) She was born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland. While the city is known for its bar scene, beer was banned there until 1995. How often do drink beer? maybe once a year

6) 66ÂșNORTH is one of Iceland's biggest employers. This clothier makes quality outdoor wear and this time of year they sell a lot of durable rainwear. Do you have a raincoat? I have two awesome raincoats

7) In 1997, when this song was popular in clubs, Titanic was popular in theaters. Sam saw it and yes, she cried. How about you? Have you seen the saga of Jack and Rose? Did you enjoy it? saw it, was really quite "meh" about it

8) Also in 1997, singer John Denver died. Name a John Denver song. "Sunshine On My Shoulders"

9) Random question: If you had the opportunity to sky dive, would you take it? absolutely

I have a friend who went skydiving with her dad. It was his 80th birthday and her 60th birthday. They had a blast. You would not even find me up in the plane, let alone jumping out of it. Wheweee baby! No, no, no.

Did you know that "meh" is now in the Oxford? What is the world coming to!

And yeah, let's go jump out of that plane together!

I liked 'Sunshine on my Shoulders' too

I like that you prefer to keep your music to yourself. Makes it seem more pure, somehow.

I so agree about age. My dad told (warned?) me to enjoy my single years in my forties because after 50 no matter who you are women were less "forward"... He was right.

Oh and are you aware there's no linky thing on Sunday Stealing?

All big milestones didn't bother me, turning 60 wasn't bad, but what really hit home was 65 and filling out the paperwork for Social Security!
