rumba with me

So, most of you probably know that I'm a huge fan of shaking everyday objects in my hands, throwing them on the ground, and using my own questionable interpretations of the resulting patterns to answer vital questions about the future course of my life.* In that spirit, I present you with the following diversion.

Shuffle up your ipod or whatever, and let the first 15 songs that come up answer the following 15 questions. Do it do it do it! Come on, don't let me be the only one doing this. I promise, it's unbelievably rewarding.

Unreservedly awesome. I'm following your lead on my bloggitybloggityblogblogblog. I wanted "Country Honk" for my theme song, though.
