4 Songs I Can’t Get Out Of My Head
- Der Kommissar, by Falco
- Fortress Round Your Heart, by Sting

It doesn't say favorite songs; I'm assuming these are earworm songs...
4 Things You Don’t Know About Me
- I am devastated that Dr. Pepper Ten has been pulled from local grocery stores and I've become a hoarder of the stuff. I bought five cases in Utah to bring home (Portland didn't have any; I looked). Can't I have just ONE vice??
- I just now came back from a potluck/square dancing night in which I was roped into learning how to do some basic square dancing. I've also done contra, which I like better, but on the whole I'm too shy about the whole thing.
- My co-worker got me hooked on Wordtrip, this little anagram phone game, and now I'm on something like level 900 and have hooked the whole family on it. (I just checked; it's level 919.)
- Speaking of video games, I love the Myst series and pretty much have played nothing else, except Portal, which I also like but haven't had time to play Portal II. Which came out like 3 years ago? And I own the 3 Myst novels too.
Now, you do it too!
