Musically Speaking

I've been looking for a free minute to play the IF ipod shuffle game, and decided it was the perfect way to procrastinate writing this grant I'm working on. Sadly it only took a few minutes and I was quickly back to staring at my blinking cursor, but then I thought - YES! I can make a post about it. And ramble on and on in the introduction so I don't have to go back to that stupid grant!

Fine, enough. Here goes. For those unclear on the rules, you set your ipod (or other mp3 player - no i-snobbery here) to shuffle and the first 5 songs to come up are the answers to the following questions. In order! No cheating!

1. The song for the you that existed before you ever thought about your fertility:

Tabou by Les Nubians (Hmm, I am kind of bitchy so maybe...)

2. Would you really want to go back and be that person again?

Rompe by Daddy Yankee ("It breaks"? Not sure what to make of that. I guess my old self is broken? No shit!)

3. The song for when you first started fertility treatments:

Over and Over Again by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (OK - here's a winner! little did I know how true that would be)

4. What did infertility do to your sex life?

Red Beans N Rice – Southern Culture on the Skids (Um, yeah, I think the band name is more pertinent than the song title. That should count, right?)

5. What about superstitions and fertility rituals?

Intermittently by Barenaked Ladies (Wait, what? I thought it was supposed to be “frequently”!)

In Other News....My drugs arrive tomorrow! I skipped over the injectible IUIs, so this is my first go-round of the daily shots and I'm oddly stoked! I'll be sure to post the obligatory photo . It seems like that's an important rite of IF blog passage.

I love that you have Les Nubians on your iPod and that you're stoked for your shots tomorrow. That's tremendous. :-)

Hi Erin,

You mentioned a book club on my blog. What is it and how do I get involved?

Sadly, I ate my last ice cream sammy tonight. Happily, I read in one of my books that it is the fertility drugs (not the mass quantities of crap I'm eating) that are making me gain weight. All right!

Hey Erin -

I luv your blog. The Scarlet "I"! OMG...I wish I thought of that first. Do you mind if I link your blog to mine?

BTW, Room With a View is one of my favorite movies, too. I just didn't think anyone but me had ever seen it.

Oh, shorts are from J Crew.

Bon chance with the shots!

xoxo, Ms Planner

Glad you're so positive about the drugs arriving. I really admire your upbeat attitude.
Please keep us posted about the injections, I'll be hanging on every word!

Just wanted to delurk and tell you that I found my way to your blog and I really like your sarcastic wit. I will certainly be reading from now on.

And that I am going to try the iPod shuffle challenge right now.

Can't wait to see the obligatory drug photo!
