Who Do You Associate With?

Hey Blogging Friends! Express Yourself is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.

Aug. 17-21: Do you have a book or TV character you can relate to?

Sure, who doesn't? I have tons.

Kate Austen from Lost - a little bit of a bad girl but for all the right reasons. Though everything on the island was purgatory, she was a fighter.

Melanie Stryder in The Host by Stephenie Meyer - No matter how hard Wanderer tried, Melanie would not go quietly.

Sophronia Temminnick in the Finishing School series by Gail Carriger - Sophronia is a 14 yr old bad@ss who always stays on the side of good even though it might turn out all wrong but end up so right.

Even though I admire Michonne and would like to think I would end up toting a katana and being the baddest bad@ss at bad@ssery... I'm more modest to admit that I'm actual more like Carol Peletier. I associate with her more and the decisions she has made. Sure they are hard but I think if it came down to it, I would burn those bodies, pull that trigger, and bake those cookies. I have kids so I know that if I was to lose them I would be hardened enough to do what I had to do to get the job done but be sociopath enough to play the chick next door keep everyone guessing.


Who do you associate with in books and TV?

What Songs Get You Moving?

Hey Blogging Friends! Express Yourself is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.

Aug. 10-14: What song makes you want to dance as soon as you hear it?

There are, of course, lots of songs that make me want to move my rump-shaker, but I would have to say there are different songs that do different things for me.

Like, Summer Breeze by Seals & Crofts and Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd make me feel like a little girl again, listening to it on my parents vinyl while my mom is cleaning the house.

2Pak, 69 Boys, Bones, Thugs & Harmony makes me think about my going to the teen clubs when I was in HS.

Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana gets me all nostalgic for a pair of baggie, ripped up jeans, and an oversized flannel.

HS holds so many good songs and memories for me, I think those are the songs which get me moving the most. The ones that bring back some really good memories.

What songs get you moving?!
