Songs for Lord of the Rings

So, my friends and I are fans of The Lord of the Rings. Big fans...maybe not as big as some, but big nonetheless. Years ago, when the movies and PS2 games came out, we came up with songs for many of the characters. I wrote them all down on a piece of paper, but can no longer find it which depresses me greatly. The ones I do remember are as follows (and if I spell things wrong, whatever. i don't have the books with me at the moment):

Sauron: "I'll be watching you" (the Sting stalker song)

Legolas: "Dude looks like a lady" (Aerosmith?)

Gimli and Legolas: "Anything you can do I can do better" (no clue)

Gimli: "I am a rock, I am an island" (no clue who sings it, but play the video game and you see what we mean. he doesn't move!)

Ring wraiths: "One way or another, I'm gonna find ya. I'm gonna getcha, getcha, getcha, getcha." (no clue)

Aragorn: "Blow your mind" (Nick Carter. this is based on a dream I had where Aragorn was in a music video and this was the song)

Urukai: "Another [elf] bites the dust" (Queen)

Eowin: "Walk like a man, talk like a man" (no clue)

Sam: "Drowning" (BSB)

As soon as I find the paper I will send an update, but considering the state of my room that may be a while.

When did I get out of the loop?

Honestly, I'm really not that old. I consider myself to be quite young actually, but life is telling me otherwise. I teach ESL and my students are always asking me about these slang phrases that they have heard in songs or from friends. Most of them I have never heard before and are rather weird. The best I can do is look at the rest of the context and guess what it means. But, every time they ask me and I have absolutely no fricken clue what it means I feel that much older and that much farther away from the next generation. Pretty soon I won't be able to understand a single word anyone below the age of 20 is saying. Well, I think teenagers are all idiots anyway, so that's really not that big of a loss.

Testing Disney

This same friend from the previous blog entry and I are planning to test Disney myths. We want to see if all of things things that happen in Disney movies can happen in real life. Here are some of the myths we plan on doing:

Singing in a forest to see if little, precious birdies come sing along with us.

Leaving a shoe on some steps (either a guy from the ward or the big staircase on campus) to see if some guy will search far and wide for the girl belonging to that shoe.

We wanted to test out a wishing well, but we have no idea where to find one.

And our list kind of ended there, but if anyone has any suggestions feel free to make some and we will test them out.

A Butt Massage

Wow. What an experience. I love massages (receiving and giving), but never in my life had I ever had a butt massage, and I had never, ever planned on giving one. However, I have crazy friends, and when you have crazy friends and you, yourself, are crazy, then you do things you never thought you would do. I'm sure this isn't an odd thing for a lot of people, but I personally never really wanted anyone massaging back there. My friend mentioned she could do them and convinced me to let her do it on me. I laid down on the floor on my stomach. She then proceeded to kneel on my butt. And apparently, the more you bend your knees the more painful it is. I had never before experienced such pain on my rear (including the many times I have fallen on my rear). Then, she convinced me to do it to her so I could know how to do it. She laid down on the floor and proceeded to tell me to straddle her, which made me burst out into laughter and almost fall over. I mean, my roommate and I are already pretty darn sure that our neighbors think we're gay, so if they heard that or if they could have seen that, my guess is that they would think it's confirmed. Anyways, so I straddled her and knelt down on her butt. Seriously, I never imagined I'd ever be kneeling on anyone's butt; however, my backside did feel quite relaxed afterward. And if you are now hoping for one since I know how to do it, sorry, it was a one time thing.
