Blender's "50 worst songs ever"

Blender magazine (a magazine I personally have never heard of nor read but puts out random "lists" of things, for attention I suppose) has put out it's list of "50 worst songs ever". EVER is a pretty strong word so I was intrigued and checked it out. For the most part, the list is accurate. I mean who doesn't agree that songs such as these are so annoying that you'd be willing to throw yourself out of a moving car if forced to listen to them!

My heart will go on (#50)
I'd do anything for meatloaf (#44) (I have a real problem with ANY meatloaf song)
Shiny happy people #35 (a horrible song, from a great band!)
Barbie girl #33 (made worse by the fact that my boyfriend and his friend sing it while drunk)
mmmmm mmmm #31 (the crash test dummies as a band are atrocious)
Sunglasses at night (#23)
Dancing on the ceiling (#20)
Kokomo (#12)
Don't worry be happy (#7)

I was shocked to see that songs like "macarena", "who let the dogs out", "my humps" and "patio lanterns" didn't make the list! I mean how could you forget how bad those songs were!!! But the true crime is the fact that they list "Party all the time" as the #8 all time worst song!!! that's a classic! "my girl wants to party, all the time, party all the time, party all the time" come on! genius lyrics! (never mind the fact that for the longest time I thought he was saying "potty" but still....) Bastards! I'll have to have a word with them!

I love Halloween. Give me any opportunity to dress up and I'm all over it. I think that's why I went into the clothing business and the fashion business. Give me an opportunity to dress up and I'm there. Last year, my co-workers and I dressed up like the village people. It was awesome. Most of my co-workers are as keen as dressing up as I am so it was fantastic. I was the Indian, but we had the construction worker, cowboy, motorcycle guy, and cop. At the time, we were down an employee and when we were interviewing people, we actually asked them "we have a group costume planned, are you willing to dress as the sailor if you are offered this job" (he did and now works with us) We did a group performance of "YMCA" which had the whole office roaring. So this year, we have a tough act to follow. We decided that this year's theme would be "superheroes" Since we don't know which superheroes to be, we turned to the internet. The Superhero Quiz has a little quiz that helped us out. We decided we would be whatever character the quiz decided. With questions like:

"do you like to fly" (of course, who doesn't?)
"are you accident prone" (who me?)
"are you VERY comfortable with your body" (I'm not sure what with VERY in capitals!)
"do you ever wear a pushup bra" (I plead the fifth)
"will you sometimes go too far to get your way" (define TOO far? do tears count?)
"are you obviously powerful" (over my dog, MAYBE)

It determines which superhero you are most like. So, I end up being "the Flash" Fast, Athletic and Flirtatious (supposedly). We have: Wonderwoman, Catwoman and The Green lantern lined up so far. This could be interesting.

swingin' in Bali

I have always wanted to go to Bali. There is just something so mystical and exotic about the place. On my constant quest to continually search out where to travel in this world, I came upon something most interesting.

The Bali Lifestyle resort. The place truly does look amazing, but something sets it apart from other places. You see, the bali lifestyle resort is for swingers. They say:

We offer you the “swingers” vacation of your lifetime on the most beautiful island on earth. We have a lot of experience in organizing festive stays and we can guarantee you a great time with a lot of sex and fun during your stay!

they go on to say...

Every Saturday night from 9PM & later we organize parties for approx. 25 couples! The parties maintain a strict dress-code, so all our guests should be dressed sexy or naked, & sex is allowed throughout the entirety of the premises. Condoms, buffet/snacks/ will be free, as well as all non alcoholic and alcoholic drinks. We're sure you'll have an amazing time!

Thinking that this is just some fluke or perverted thing, I did more research. But nope, there are tons of websites out there dedicated to the swinging vacationing world. For once, I'm speechless!!! and NO, honey, we are NOT going on a swinger vacation!!!
