Who am I? Amy Winehouse?

I've been tagged! Go yourselves....LOL. Kidding. It's been awhile since I have been blessed by Queen Mimi, and I took enormouse amounts of (self provided) pleasure in completing this wonderful *sigh* NEEDS meme.

The rules: All you have to do is Google your first name with the word needs behind it and post the results.

(I actually used my real name on this one.)

1. Andrea needs help finding stalker songs (yeah, my list is SOOOO 2001)

2. Andrea needs a profession in which she can express her inventive and idealistic side (Well DUH)

3. Andrea needs to read her Emily Post (cuz apparently my manners suck)

4. Andrea needs a brush (Ok, y'all seen my hair - does it LOOK like i can get a brush through it?)

5. Andrea needs treatment, not a death sentence (this one's a quote from my therapist...)

6. Andrea needs me close to her heart (welllll.....depends, are ya cute?)

7. Andrea needs all her wits and all the help she can get from the company's attractive operations manager to find and stop the perpetrators. (this makes my job sound a lot more fun than it actually is)

8. Andrea needs to take her game to a whole new level (yeah, cuz I can barely get past the first one )

9. Andrea needs a cute boytoy. (or two or three...)

10. Andrea needs to go into detox. (who am I? Amy winehouse?)

I would tag people, but I'm sure that Mimi's got everyone covered. On the off chance you weren't hit during her tagging spree, consider yourself tagged.

Seven Songs Meme - snagged from Trav (snogs to ya babes)

Ok, so not having a clue about what to write these days (as obvious since my last post was two weeks ago), I saw this wonderful little meme over at Trav's house, and thought I'd grab it for myself. So here it is. It's quite simple really.

Post these instructions.
Tag seven others.

Well, let's just open the Recently Played list on my iTunes and see what comes up.

3. I Kissed A Girl - Katy Perry
4. End of the Innocence - Don Henley
5. Under Pressure - Queen
6. Who Wants to Live Forever? - Queen

Ok...let's see...hrm - tag seven others huh? Well, let's tag Dayle, Dana, Paul, Glinda, Anndi, Turnbaby, and Jules!!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesdays - me with a couple

(I look like crap - wasn't posed because Thing 1 burped in my ear just as the pic was being taken. But still very amusing)
