    Was actually hard to figure out the songs, I like so much music but decided those four would never irritate me if heard too often!

    I know! I'm just glad I decided to put it at the top. It was hard enough narrowing it down to five; I can't imagine picking three or four...

    "Castaway" (helpful tips about how to survive)
    Well, I've learned to avoid drinking beverages while reading AN. For some reason, this really cracked me up. I just barely turned my head in time to avoid destroying my computer screen with a wave of water expelled through my nostrils. That's great and all, but I happened to turn toward my cat instead.

    Suffice it to say that wet cats are not happy cats.

    (How can a creature that isn't human portray a look of such utter hatred?)

    They can get that "look" down to a fine art, can't they? LOL!!!

    Sorry about the cat. Maybe you can make it up to her later? haha

    I was just torn about the music. Took me several minutes of pondering that and I don't think I did a good job with my choices.

    As for the movies, I really did not like Castaway all that much, but thought it might come in handy.

    I would have said, Galaxy Quest, too, like AngieO. Maybe Angie O and I could have close islands and meet up and share our choice in movies. LOL!!!!
