On The 25th, I'm Gonna Cover You With My Nutmeg

Okay, quick couple of things here: I just got back from work, so yes, I'm tired, and I smell like meat. It's uncomfortable to say the least. But before that, I went over to my mother's house to help her shop on itunes. She's still pretty young, but beyond email, she's technologically impaired. Anyways, we ended up spending a $50 itunes card on (wait for it) Christmas music. I know, I'm ashamed too, but it was her idea, and I managed to convince her to buy A Colbert Christmas, so it wasn't a total waste. Just partially.

Anyways, I'm stealing today's post from Figgy. It's basically a twenty line poem where you shuffle through your songs and use the first line of each song. Thank you Figs, my love, for this wonderful goddamn idea.

Your Back's Against The Wall
By I Heard A Distant Early Warning

You got them all by the balls
Last night I couldn't even get an answer
Carbon Monoxide, soon I'll go to sleep
How you been feeling

You can see me from this view
Let's go back in time
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Paint my face in your magazines.

Good girls are pretty
He left no time to regret
Here's the day you hoped would never come
I know you

I'm too foggy today
Don't tell me they all hate me now too
Get so caught up everyday
There's a harvest

Help, I have done it again
Johnny my love
Growin' Up, Brewin' Up
I've been a girl with her skirt pulled high
