Music Meme

Tagged by MaggieMay, here it is.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

Some are not new, but they are in frequent rotation:

1. Un Bel Di (Puccini - the Leontyne Price version). Yeah, my recital is tonight. I have been singing along incessantly (well, as long as I'm ALONE!!)

2. The Boys of Summer - Don Henley

3. Feels Like Tonight - Daughtry

4. Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis

5. Mercy - Duffy (over and over and over . . . )

6. Follow Me - Uncle Kracker

7. Stupid Shit - Girlicious

And for a bonus, here is a song that I would be more than happy never to hear again:
1. Bubbly - Colbie Caillat

I am tagging whoever happens to read this and wants to do it (lots have been tagged alreasy, so I don't want to double tag anyone).

Un Bel Di Vedremo . . .

These are most of the words invading my sleep, my waking, my day, my night . . . and my nightmares. Yep, recital time is rapidly approaching. And I'm living in Italian.

I'm Appalled

OWEN SOUND, Ont. - A waitress from Owen Sound, Ont., says she can't believe she was laid off after she had her head shaved for a cancer fundraising event.

Stacey Fearnall raised more than $2,700 for charity, but when she showed up for work and refused to sport a wig for her shift, her boss told her to take the summer off.

Her employer, Dan Hilliard, says his restaurant has certain standards prohibiting men from wearing earrings and requiring employees to keep their hair at a reasonable length.

He says Fearnall is still on the payroll and she can return to work once she sprouts some locks.

Hilliard admits the story isn't great PR for the restaurant but as far as he's concerned, it's an internal staff problem.

He says he's already heard from some customers who agree with him and say they would have been "appalled" to have been served at Fearnell's table.

So, in a nutshell, the woman was laid off until she grows her hair because she shaved her head to raise money for cancer and refused to wear a wig. Huh. I wonder what the restaurant's policy is for those who have lost their hair to chemo? Wear a wig or you're laid off? Asshole!!
