Izzy's meme

The gorgeous and talented (have you seen her t-shirts?) Izzy over at Moonshine has a meme. Copy, paste, blog. Go. Oh, and she would like your answers in her comments section...

1) What is your favorite word?

2) What word irks you everytime you hear someone say it? You can have more than one.

3) Name the first concert you ever went to.

4) Name a song will you never get sick of hearing.

5) What song, album or band influenced you most as a teenager OR what song/album is the soundtrack of your youth? You can pick more than one if you have to.

1) What is your favorite word?
Falling. I don't know why but I always want to use it in poems.

2) What word irks you everytime you hear someone say it? You can have more than one.
Orientate. "Orient" means to familiarize oneself, "orientate" means to turn facing east. Please make a note of it. And "literally" because so many people use it wrong. "My head literally came off," I heard a woman say on the news.

3) Name the first concert you ever went to.
Bruce Springsteen at the LA Sports Arena. Maybe 1980? Big fun.

4) Name a song will you never get sick of hearing.
Van Morrison's Moondance.

5) What song, album or band influenced you most as a teenager OR what song/album is the soundtrack of your youth? You can pick more than one if you have to.
Definitely Springsteen as a teen. He was young and scrawny and so raw and honest and great. Back then he had 3 albums out and I listened to 'Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ" about one million times. I used to gaze at Cat Stevens on that Moondance album cover (yes, a vinyl record album cover, I am old) and listen to that over and over, too.

You are too kind :-)

Orientate bugs me, too. Why do people feel the need to tack on that extra "ate" on the end? I'll never understand.

I hate conversate as well.

Oh, and suppebly...

Ugh this language is a tough one.
