Thanks to [ profile] glaucon for this.

Here da meme: go to this site and find the five years (presumptively) you were in high school. For each year, admit to (or aver joyously) the song that was your favorite at the time, then decide which one you now generally consider to be the best song on the list. Lastly, pick the year's worst song, snarking optional.

1979: I'm surprised at how many great songs came out this year—My Sharona, Le Freak, Sultans of Swing, Heart Of Glass, and a world of gay club mainstays:
I Love The Night Life » Alicia Bridges
Ring My Bell » Anita Ward
We Are Family » Sister Sledge
Y.M.C.A. and In the Navy » Village People

Fave then: Cut for bigbigbig )

1. Go to Career Cruising.
2. Put in Username: nycareers and Password: landmark.
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
4. Post the top twenty results.

At a glance, I don't see ANY overlap with my brother's list :)

I'm not sure where this ocean/marine business comes in, as I've always had an irrational fear of water; e.g., I get panicky when my head does underwater. Other than that aspect and with a really askance look at "Actuary" and "Market Research Analyst," I very much like my list. Which I guess I should since it's tailored to my tastes and interests.

1. Oceanographer
2. Actuary
3. Dietitian
4. Marine Biologist
5. Criminologist
6. Zoologist
7. Food Scientist
8. Brewmaster
9. Chef
10. Paleontologist
11. Director of Photography
12. Botanist
13. Family and Consumer Scientist
14. Veterinarian
15. Critic
16. Political Aide
17. Biologist
18. Market Research Analyst
19. Musician
20. Writer (haha—last one! I should be doing 19 things before the thing that I do do. Though I doubt "proposal manager" is among their professions.)

Oh, and:

21. Composer (ok, I am one, but not for a living)
22. Translator
23. Veterinary Technician
24. Taxidermist
25. Special Effects Technician

Ok, cat's out of the bag (and mounted on an Astroturf pedestal).

[I have edited the instructional text. This is not a meme; it is a mutating virus.]
1. In response to this post, leave me a casual comment of no particular significance—like a lyric to your current favorite song, or your favorite kind of sandwich, or what kind of day you're having, or whom you love versus who's on your shitlist. Any remark, irrespective of import.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions (Three personal questions!) three personal questions so I can pretend to get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the questions I ask you and your answers.
4. Include this explanation (with your own editorial changes if for some bizarre reason you find it imperfect) and offer to pose five questions (Three questions!) three questions to those who send you a desultory comment.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions (Three questions!) three questions [or ve vill shootz you!].

Comment: Flanders & Swann ROCK. Well, not really, but they sort of cavort.

Questions from [ profile] peregrin8:

1. Who?
Contemporaneous with Tom Lehrer but gaining initial notoriety in their native Britain in 1956, Michael Flanders (trained as an actor) and Donald Swann (a composer-philologist... ah, could there be a nicer hyphenated avocation?) wrote a whole lot of silly songs in the 1950s and 1960s. See Wikipedia or here. I just bought a used copy of The Complete Flanders and Swann (comprising their three major record releases, with all the littler stuff they did included as extras). The first number of theirs I ever heard was "The Reluctant Cannibal" (which, like many of their pieces, is part song/part sketch) on The Dr. Demento Show, circa 1982.

2. What year was that adorable icon picture taken, and in what circumstances?
Circa 1982. I was thinking Flock of Seagulls at the time, but now I think it's more Stray Cats. This was probably one of the first times I messed with my hair as a fashion statement... as a kid I had done so seldom if ever.

3. How often do you exercise/work out, and what is your routine if any?
Seldom if ever. Whenever there's a bus pulling out without me. If there's some kind of workout that involves no actual physical effort, I'd be happy to do it.

4. Will you feed Max this weekend?
I'd be happy to do it. BTW, did you know he appears not to have made it into the planter box on the bottom shelf of that steel unit on the back deck? As of yesterday afternoon, I noticed, right next to that planter, a pile of cat shit.

5. What is your favorite candy?
Uh oh.

I have been asked, upon filling out this meme in [ profile] crafting_change's journal, to repost it in mine. Sneaky sneaky! Putting that as the last question! I didn't see that coming!

Do not feel obligated to respond, but mind the ice weasels if you don't.
