Out with the Old, In with the New

I totally loved my tartan day planner last year. (Do you know the difference between tartan and plaid? Tartan has rotational symmetry. :-)) I’m almost sad to retire it, except that my new day planner is from Listography. When I bought it, it was near impossible to not fill in all the lists. I managed to control myself and just wrote down a few things I wasn’t sure I’d remember when they rolled around 6 or 8 months from then. A few things repeat from the Listography books, but not too many. And even though quite a few of the illustrations are recycled, they have new lists to go with them.

Can’t wait!

Some I haven’t listened to in a while, like Elvis or Kelly Clarkson, but I guess I played them so much before that other songs haven’t caught up yet. Over the Rainbow has 69 hits, and the second song has 45. Then songs that I absoultely love like Hysteria by Def Leppard didn’t even make the list because it had only 15 hits. I guess I don’t listen to it enough in the car. Best. Stereo. Ever.
