If you know me, you know Toto. Toto is my widdle puppy dog I sleep with every night, I've had him since I was born, and I LUFF HIM. Every so often, I will vainly hunt the internet to try and find a picture of what he looked like new. Today, I found an EBAY AUCTION for one of him!

I think this one is even a little worn, because in the picture I have of Toto when he was brand spanking new, he was WAAAAAAAAAAY POOFY.

infare: A wedding festival.

Feast Day of St. Dwynwen,
A Welsh patroness of lovers. Sir Charles Igglesden's Those Superstitions (1931) mentioned a defunct wedding tradition in which a groom's livelihood was displayed in the ceremony: "It is recorded how the carpenter's journey from the church door to the roadway was strewn with wooden chips. Along the coast it was customary for the fisherman and his bride to walk over nets. The path of the blacksmith bridegroom was strewn with horseshoes and pieces of old iron, and in the villages of hop-growing counties hops were placed along the footpath of a hop-grower as he left the church with his bride. One can visualize the awkward emblems of other callings, such as the butcher and his bride stepping over roast beef and mutton chops, or an ironmonger painfully escaping from nails turned upwards. And there was the fishmonger bridegroom treading over slippery fish which had been affected by the heat of the sun. A baker went so far as to wade through flour. A tanner passed over the skins of oxen and sheep - cured, let us hope."

iPod Meme

(I hearts them)

Step 1: Put your MP3 player, iTunes or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

CAVEATS: NO SPOKEN WORD TRACKS. THAT'S JUST NOT FAIR. I'm also going to skip songs that I don't even know, that are on my "Someday when I'm bored and want new music to listen to it will be right there on my iPod" list, because I know I won't remember the answers.
