It's November 10, which means we're 1/3 of the way through NaBloPoMo. And I'm just now starting to get to that point where I sit down to my computer and think, "Damn, we're only 1/3 of the way there?" Except sometimes the "Damn" is a stronger expletive.
So for today, a couple memes. This first one I've seen a few different places, but most recently over at Tali Bali.
Choose a band (or singer) and answer only in song TITLES by that band:
I've decided to go with the spectacular Rascal Flatts.
