Something cheerful for a change

Jennifer tagged me with this. I'm not sure what this is really for, but the tag is a sacred trust and I must bow to it.

Instructions: Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. NO CHEATING.

How does the world see you?
"Prodigal Daughter (Cotton Eyed Joe)" Michelle Shocked

Will I have a happy life?
"Ringing Dark and True" The Gourds

What do my friends really think of me?
"Tiptoe" Ani DiFranco

"Miles Davis' Funeral" Morphine

How can I be happy?
"I Want to Vanish" Elvis Costello

What should I do with my life?
"I Wear Your Ring" The Cocteau Twins

Will I ever have children?
"Leopard-Skin Pillbox Hat" Jimmy Thackery (not Dylan, thank you).

Now, since Dumbledore warns us about trusting machines that think for themselves, I'll take this one with a grain of salt. I tag you if you don't know who Dumbledore is.

Silly Lola. It was Mrs. Weasley who said that you shouldn't trust magical items if you can't see where they keep their brains.

Um, I'd hate to correct the maid of honor, but it was Mr. Weasley who said, in The Chamber of Secrets:

Ginny! said Mr. Weasley, flabbergasted. "Haven't I taught you anything? What have I always told you? Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain? (Rowling 329)

Just saying
