went to Worldcon. Very good. Bought too many ebooks.... oops. Then had a week in Helsinki (so as not to be missing the con to do tourism). Sow all the things. Zoo has red pandas, so cute. Went on rollercasters.

21.A favourite song with a person's name in the title

I am maybe a bad person, and this is probably number 2 on my list of things not to sing at work (maybeu don't click at work). But it's a song I've liked even before it was a whole song.

20.A song that has many meanings for you

I'm totally blocked on this. I'm not sure any songs have 'many meanings' to me really.

11.A song that you never get tired of

So many. I nearly went with a Rick Roll. This one I thought about putting for Wedding but no.. that wouldn't bu a great choice really.

I do so hope he plays 'The Rains of Castamere.' It's been an hour, I've forgotten how it goes.[

8.A song about drugs or alcohol

I thought about Madeira, but it's very... not good. So here's one I like, but it's not especially something I had an immediate answer to.

6.A song that makes you want to dance

This is my favourite dance, so I always want to dance to it

as a song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQLbjejkRiE

video of the dance (although they do Mairi's Divorce as almost everyone does and omit the common flourishes, I couldn't find anything much better in a quick search, Mairi's Hangover is also a fun dance although apparently there are no videos on youtube, it's extended for 4 couples and the double reels of 4 are... hard to get right):

4.A song that reminds you of someone you'd rather forget about

Hard, I'm not sure any songs really remind me of people at all, but this reminds me of interminable hours spent in a church I didn't want to be in. And we did it at just as this recording... at interminable length. I suspect it is meant to be meditative but... I was never fond of church but getting a priest who had defected from Dad's CofE church because GIRL COOTIES was not exactly the high point. Fortunately my 'church sucks' anecdotes are limited to boredom and disagreement rather than anything worse.

3.A song that reminds you of summer

hmmmmm summer for me starts with reenactment, and we like to sing things. I could pick something reenactor-y but the song I most associate with summer camping in the 16th century is this one:
