Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. sharing exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they've encountered during the week etc.)

1. Hello dear people! First of all, a wonderful Christmas to you and your loved ones and a happy New Year!

Yes, it's autumn... And how much more do  you realize it when you live in a foresty area. Last monday the groundskeeper of our building was cleaning the drive of the mass of leaves. He was working on it practically all afternoon. Next morning, I looked out of my window... Poor man, the whole drive was a tapestry of leaves again, he could just start over!

Two memes, because a meme a day, keeps the doctor away! )

I'm eagerly awaiting the World Cup final tonight, and passing the time on LJ.

Here are the answers to the random song meme I posted a few weeks ago. Seven of the songs were guessed by you guys. As all the songs were from my YouTube playlist and most of my playlist is composed of Period Drama fanvids, I'll post some of the best here as well! Have fun with them!

I was thinking about posting this for a while, but here it finally is.

Step 1. Put your playlist on random.
Step 2. Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (You can skip songs that are instrumental.)
Step 3. Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
No Googling, dear people!

Well, I don't have an MP3-player (shocker! No really, I don't, I always listen to the radio on my phone), so I took 25 songs more or less random from my YouTube playlists. I'm really curious how many you'll know!

1. I'm broke but I'm happy, I'm poor but I'm kind...
2. There's a wild wind blowing, down the corner of my street...
3. Sailing, sailing, somewhere beyond the sea...
4. Life is beautiful, we love until we die..
5. See how she shines, shining there for you...
6. And did those feet, in ancient times...
7. Don't go wasting your emotions...
8. Everytime I think of you, I always catch my breath..
9. He was born in the Bitterroot valley, in the early morning rain...
10. Do you derive joy, when someone else succeeds....
11. You ran around, inside my head....
12. There's a song that's inside of my soul...
13. I don't want another heartbreak, I don't need another turn to cry...
14. My life flows on in endless song, above earth's lamentation...
15. Some people life in a house on a hill and wish they were some place else...
16. I don't know if you can see, the changes that have come over me...
17. Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry....
18. I don't know how to explain it, but I know that words would hardly do..
19. There is something that I see, in the way you look at me...
20. Well I woke up today, and the world was a restless place....
21. To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean...
22. I set out on a narrow way, many years ago...
23. I tried to paint you a picture, the colours were all wrong...
24. You think I'd leave you're side baby, you know me better than that...
25. When trials come, no longer fear, for in the pain....

This music vid was made by my mother's neighbour. He's the man with the beard and the deep voice you can see in the vid. This was filmed on a field right in front of my mother's kitchen window. I would've liked to have seen the filming, so cool with all the horses! I guess you can't understand the largest part of the lyrics, because they are in Frisian, a language spoken in the Northern part of The Netherlands and my mother tongue. But there's also a part in English, so that might give you some ideas as to the theme of the song. The title sort of translates as 'comfort of summer'. By the way, many of the horses (the big black ones) are Frisian horses, a gorgeous breed of horses also originating from the province of Friesland.
