Meme in my pants

There are two long fairly serious entries I want to write soon: one about the origins of my zeppelin story (Tangent Online has just reviewed the zeppelin book), and one about wills and handling of assets after someone's death (which was the topic I kept forgetting I wanted to write about). But both of those will take time and thought and emotional energy to write, and I should've been asleep an hour ago. So instead I'll just post a bit of sophomoric humor I put together a few days ago, which will require no further thought at all. (But first I'll mention that one other thing that's been cheering me up intermittently is reading a new Jennifer Crusie book: Bet Me. So far not as good as some of her others, but still has some delightful moments, and still makes me smile regularly.)

Last week, Tim posted the results of a pants meme: take the first 25 songs in your media player or iTunes or whatever (on shuffle play) and add "in my pants" to the end of each title. I made such a list last week; actually I did it twice and took the best of both lists. Tim said to put your favorites in bold, but I never got around to deciding which of these were my favorites, so I'm just gonna post 'em.

I laughed and laughed while reading these. I don't know why I find this stuff so amusing. Thanks much, Tim! (Did you invent this meme? If so, nice work!)

    No, I didn’t invent it (I can’t remember where I saw it first — some livejournal deep in a chain of followed-links), but I’m happy to help popularize it!
