Love your blocks. I don't have an ipod, but I love that song "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepson and I adore the many adaptations especially the one by the troops in Afghanistan. What a great way to release tension/stress and promote comradery. The song is so addicting!

Ummm I don't own an iPod or any music player similar to one.
If I did it would probably be something by Josh Groban or maybe ABBA though.

I am partially embarrassed to say that "Call Me Maybe" has been playing ALOT on my iPod lately. Only partially embarrassed because I listen to it while I'm exercising, so I figure that makes it okay.

My constant loop in our rural home is the tinkle of wind chimes, birds chirping, and the sounds of neighing horses and lowing cattle. I do not own an i-pod.

Beulah said...

Oh dear......
I don't have an iPod.
I don't listen to radio.
I don't play cd's.
I don't watch tv much either.....prefer books over tv.
I love it when the house is quiet and all I hear is the sound of birds and my sewing machine.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who will answer "Elton John's 'Mona Lisa's and MadHatters'". Love that song, and it always makes me feel teary.
