74) What’s a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?

Hmm, I’m gonna cheat on this one and name a few. This was a good question for me because it made me realize that almost every single one of my favorite songs make me kinda sad? I had to look for a long time to find these? Yikes?

Eleanor Put Your Boots on, Franz Ferdinand
From Africa to Malaga, jj
Last Stop: This Town & Things the Grandchildren Should Know, eels
Scenic World, Beirut
King Kunta, Kendrick Lamar
Come Sail Away, Styx

90)  One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren’t really doing anything, they’re just standing around your bed. What do you do?

WHAT A GOOD QUESTION. In a hypothetical, ideal world, I would probably try to talk with them. Find out what what these mummies were doing hanging out in a St. Louis apartment building. But if I am very honest with myself I would freak the fuck out and try to escape out my window. I am on the second story so I I’d probably break my ankle but otherwise be fine (besides the fact that I would be spending the rest of my life pondering a very weird and unbelievable unanswered question). 

92)  You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?

Oof. I’m gonna give a double answer here. If I’m gonna go back and fix something, I will spend 30 minutes finding and scheduling an appointment with a good therapist when I am 19. That’s not all that fun an answer, though, so if I’m gonna relive something nice I’ll also go back to age 19. I was studying abroad in the UK but had to vacate my apartment for spring break. I didn’t have money to stay in hotels or hostels, so I lived on a farm in France for a while and earned my room and board by working there. I remember arriving there at night and going to sleep in my little cabin. When I woke up the next morning I saw mountains with snow on them for the first time - I just sorta woke up and it was like the mountains were just magically there, and had popped out of the ground overnight. I stared at them and ate homemade granola and it was really lovely.

Franz Ferdinand - Eleanor Put Your Boots On

Le ragazze, quelle che camminano,
con stivali di occhi neri,
sui fiori del mio cuore.
