A Silly Song Meme(and new ripple 'ghan pics)

Susan at Blackberry Creek tagged me for this one. I am always up for a silly meme!!

Tag Rules:

1. Post the link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 songs you are embarrassed to admit to others that you like and tell why.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post.

Here are my 5 songs. They really show my wild, funkified, side and are a blast to listen to.

The Go go's, Vacation(um, no explanation needed, this is truly a horrid song)

Ram Jam's, Black Betty(this one is just fun to funk out to but extremely nerdy)

The Flight of the Concords, Ladies of the World(this one has a great beat but is actually a spoof)

AC/DC's, Thunderstruck(again, no explanation needed)

and last but not least,

Rufus and Chaka Khan's Tell Me Something Good(Mark just thinks this is hideous. I wish my mouth was half that size though, I could be "such" a singer!)

I'm tagging Anet at Purple Squirrel, Tricia at Tricia's Place of Peace, and Chickenbells at Fooleswoode. Anyone else can play along, just let me know in the comments!!

Now for the afghan pics! I'm making this for our living room because we don't really have an afghan big enough to cuddle with. Its using the Susan B's Easy Ripple Pattern(google it if you want).

The actual names of the colors are...

Dark Country Blue, Light Sage, Black, Toasted Almond, Sea Blue, Brown, and Light Gray. Such original names! This yarn is great, the weight is pretty heavy, more than Red Heart and much softer. Almost a cross between a heavier Red Heart and Caron's Simply Soft. Not as flimsy-floppy feeling as the SS but definitely not scratchy like the RH. Anyway, it feels like it will make a substantial blanket for us.

I'm hoping to post a wonderful surprise tomorrow but it will depend on if someone sends me pictures or not. They know who they are!

Well... I love those colors you chose! Nice and earthy!!

I love your ripple afghan, Molly. I guess it shows my age that I'm not familiar with even one of your embarrassing songs. I'll have to listen to them and see just how awful they are.

Keetha said...

I started an afghan once - - - granny squares - - - but I never finished it!!!!!!!!!!

She sure is strange! said...

It is very earthy Anet, more of a seascape or beach colors to me though.

Susan, I don't claim to love those songs, they just get me going when I hear them! I'm mostly a Kenny G type person. Now that is probably some thing that should embarass me.

Keetha, I did a granny square once. Or should I say I attempted one. It came out looking like a wopped-up wavy sided geometric shape(not a square I can assure you). I've since stuck to straight lines or the ripples!

Ooh, yarn. I haven't knitted in a while as it's a winter time activity for me. But seeing your project makes me want to break out the needles.

Chickenbells said...

I love Vacation! It must be my age...sigh. I would love to participate when I get back from hooky and get my feet on the ground...
