Tags and Happiness

I'm feeling very social this week, chatting to all my wonderful online friends, so I thought I'd try and share a little happiness through these delightful images from Flickr. I've also been tagged to bring you three different memes.

So in the order they were received; firstly I was tagged by Times of Glory to list my Six Songs For Spring. Given that I am presently in Winter, I'm going to give you my Six Songs To Dress By instead. Click the links to get your groove on.

1. Nobody But Me - Lou Rawls ( This would have to be one of my all time favorite tunes)
2. Is you is or is you ain't my baby - Dinah Washington.
3. The Lady is a Tramp - Ella Fitzgerald
4. L.O.V.E. love - Emma Pasque
5. Plenty of Money and You - Tony Bennett
6. Me & My Shadow - Robbie Williams

The 123 tag from Disney Roller Girl.

The rules:
1. Pick up nearest book
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the next 3 sentences
5. Tag 5 people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

"Six months later, though, while filming in New York, her made plans to escort her to a title fight at Madison Square Garden. George Evans, who knew the press had learned of the affair, dissuaded him. Instead Frank appeared at ringside with Joe Di Maggio and Marlene Dietrich."

from Sinatra - The Life by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan

I've had this book for a number of years now and am only just starting to read it in my spare time. Hence, three months on, I am still on chapter 2.

And the 6 Unimportant Things About Me from Ivyology, I think I have done one like this before but for the benefit of my new readers I'll have to come up with something.

The rules are as follows:

1. Link back to the person that tagged you.

2. Post these rules on your blog.

3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.

4. Tag six people at the end of your entry.

1. I have an overactive imagination and start looking for laser sights to appear on the walls when the power goes out.
2. I use my fork in the wrong hand, and swap it to cut.
3. I am constantly creating nonsensical nicknames for my children and dogs, so no one knows when I am talking to them.
4. My husband calls me Rain Man.
5. When I bought my last pair of slippers (hand made), the little old man who sold them to me said, " I have only ever sold these to elderly ladies." And I was quite pleased with that.
6. I still have to count forward from 12 to figure out what time it is in 24 hour time, but I like how military and organised it sounds.

Rather than now tagging 15 people, I'm going to tag 5. Each of you can choose which of these tags most appeals to you or that you haven't yet completed. Have fun!

It's just so nice to know more about other bloggers.

Amy G said...

How fun! These little memes are nice to get to know others--I agree with the seeker above. :)

Rain Man is tie as my 2nd favourite movie ever along with The Green Mile. Bridget Jones is may all time number 1. I also struggled with the 24 hour clock for years (and I was a flight attendant for many of those) and then one day its just kind of stuck and now I use it all the time - along with "so what's your ETA?" drives the boyfriend crazy. Thanks for the tag lovely lady. xf

Shady said...

I love doing these, they are so random and you get to know interesting stuff about your fave bloggers :)

I am with you on the nicknames- EVERYONE around me (pets, humans, cars, houses, whatever!) gets multiple (often silly) nicknames. A total habit of mine.

And you #1 answer on the third meme cracked me up. Haha.

A dreamer said...

those shoes and the candy striper dress are sweeet!
I agree with those above: Its nice to know random things about other bloggers!

Lil' Puch said...

Thank you so much for tagging me!!

Ivy said...

Oh, I absolutely LOVE your music taste!

And I have to ask, why does your husband call you Rain Man? lol

Super Kawaii Mama said...

Emma: Thank you, these are some of my all time top tracks.
Amy & the Seeker: It is fun, as we all seem to have our own notion of what other bloggers must be like.
Francis: I do the ETA thing too, as well as going on "recon missions" and reconnoitering!
Shady: Glad to give you a giggle. :)
A dreamer: I am in love with those shoes.
Lil Puch: You're welcome.
Ivy: One of the things I love about these songs is that they instantly cure me of a bad mood. As for the Rain Man thing.... I'll have to investigate that further.

Rachael said...

Your number three of unimportant things is very similar to mine - it's such fun!

Thank you for tagging me, you're lovely.

I have to count, too, when doing military time! I'm glad I'm not the only one. I also come up with scads of nicknames. My dog had about six at any given time.

Thanks for doing these tags, I got to learn lots of fun things about you.

Super Kawaii Mama said...

Rachael: You're welcome, it is fun.
Enc: But do you do it on your fingers? (not always, but with the chaos that it is here sometimes, it certainly helps).

Va Bien bra never looks out of your wedding dress because colors are quite natural and adjusted well with your body and wedding gown. Ultra-lift seamless foam cup bra is the most demanding product of this brand whose secret lies inside the cups.
