well, we're all in the mood for a melody, and you've got us feelin' alright

What was the first song you memorized all the lyrics to?

Who is the friend you have had the longest? When/how did you meet?

Do you have a container in which you keep all of your loose change? How often do you exchange it in for cash ... if ever?

Have you ever gone to a bar by yourself, without the intention of meeting up with a friend, just gone by yourself to hang out.

I'm dating myself (wait, isn't that illegal in some counties?), but the first song I ever memorized beside Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was "I'd really Love to See You Tonight" By England Dan and John Ford Coley.

The friend I've had the longest is my best friend from Jr. High, Dennis. We met in 7th grade and have been friends since then.

Yep, I have a 5 gallon water bottle that I put my change in every night. I cashed it in the last time it was full. I used one of those Coinstar things and got almost $1200 from it.

Yep. I've done that numerous times and I almost always end up shooting the breeze with someone within a half hour or so.

1) Enter Sandman by Metallica

2) Colin, we met in 4th grade and have been best friends since.

3) I hate loose change and find it to be a nuisance, so if i do have it, i put it in a jug that serves as a door stop for my bedroom. I am hoping one day i can cash it and buy a house or a truck or a hell of lot of beer.

4) I used to go to Cigar Masters in Boston by myself all the time. The alone time to sit, drink, and smoke was extremely satisfying.

"Take me home" - by Phil Collins. My sophomore/junior year of HS, and I was very homesick!

My best friend Eric - and I met him in 9th grade Humanities class - so 1982.

Yes - a plastic bag - and I exchange it when it's full!

Yup, have gone to a bar by myself for no other reason than to have a beer, some munchies and be by myself. Not often, but I have done it!

What was the first song you memorized all the lyrics to? Wow... I have no idea. Maybe "Feel the Quiet River Rage" by Live. Maybe "Savin' All My Love for You" by Whitney Houston. Either way, yeesh, I feel young now.

Who is the friend you have had the longest? When/how did you meet? That old bastard, Staffy! I love Staffy; he's let me abuse him for some, what, 11-12 years now? The secret to our longevity is distance and infrequent communication. ;) Actually, I moved around a lot as a kid and was never good about keeping in touch. Then Staffy actually moved away first, and somehow we managed to maintain a correspondance via snail-mail. He's a good kid, for a Nazi bastard. :)

Do you have a container in which you keep all of your loose change? How often do you exchange it in for cash ... if ever? Nope, no container. I rarely have any cash at all. When I do, silvery coins are devoured by the vending machine. Pennies are spent by the spouse--who always uses cash but relies on me for the pennies.

Have you ever gone to a bar by yourself, without the intention of meeting up with a friend, just gone by yourself to hang out. Yep. And it's how me met me husband, matey, arrr! --Sorry, I don't know where that pirate-speak just came from.-- If I'd had anyone to talk to, I wouldn't have had that whole mojito. And if I hadn't had that whole mojito [moojiiitooo... gawwwd... drooool...], I wouldn't have given him the time of day. ...I love that whole story. :)

sesame street - cause i used to watch it every day - can't remember all the words now though. ha.

kristin ellis - we grew up in essex together - then she moved to michigan. we thought we were twins separated at birth growing up - ahhh memories!

i do and i just brought it out of the back of my closet in hopes that i can fill it and pay off some of my debt! and then by myself a special present!

can't say i have...i don't do the bar scene much and don't care to go by myself - too many sketchy guys out there- even when i turned 21 - i felt the same way..

I suspect it was "It's a Small World," but it could have been "Bibbity Bobbity Boo."

My brother. Met when I was four and he was about 2 days old. For the most part, we've been friends our whole lives. On the non-related front, probably my friends Grace and Nancy who I met in 7th grade. I don't remember how or when, only that one day I realized I was a part of this group of girls who I'd been with for quite some time. We were 12 then, this year we all turn 40.

We have a GREAT BIG mason jar. In December, I emptied it and counted the change, which I deposited at the bank. $323 and some. I can't remember when we last had emptied it, but it must have been a couple of years. The damn thing was completely full. It weighed 27 lbs.

No. I was a pretty, pretty young woman, and bars were not fun places to be even with friends.

miss brewster, oh i miss thee

*ahem*

"Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" -THE Burt Bacharach wrote it, but I learned the B.J. Thomas version. Also, "American Pie" - Don McLean (thanks pops!)

Kip - We met 12 years ago, by a freak occurence through an outing with an -ex, at the time she was teaching at a daycare and one of the mothers invited us out for an double date thingy with her and her husband. We went out to the bar with them, and We have been like brothers ever since. (almost) everytime we get together (no not like that) we still, to this day, comment on how strange the origination and duration was of our first! time. Probably only makes non-sense to us.
OH, crap, I almost forgot Coach. He was a teacher/coach when I was in high school and also in a lot of things I shouldn't have been in. He was/is one helluva a guy and we still correspond and I am ever thankful he was there during that sketchy time in my life. And also now.

I have Graz's 5 gallon water jug also, but so far I have never managed to put ANY change in it. I've keep that thing for years, but what inevitably happens is, I just empty my pockets out in various places all over the house. (ISIANMTU) I recently dug about 13 cents out of the garbage disposal. So, I've got small piles of change out the wazoo, and since I live in 17 different places at the moment, I really should go round and gather it all up and cash it in. Hell, I bet I could a hundredaire or something. but I doubt I do.

Lots. And on purpose. I like my alone time. And my beer. Like it I say.

Probably (because they were my Dad's favourites and I heard them A LOT) something by The Beach Boys - I'm guessing "Don't Worry, Baby" because it's my favourite.

My sister. Mum found her somewhere and brought her home when I was 14 months old. The friendship didn't develop immediately, but good things take time & clich├ęs like that.

No. It's all in the bottom of my handbag, and it gets scoured out when I need money for something ad there's none in my purse.

Yes, but not often.
