Meme, to the blogosphere, means survey and there’s always a lot spreading around such as when Luchie tagged me to reveal about the music I like. Unfortunately, I don’t get to listen much to music these days since I got rid of my car and downsized my life. Unlike other people, I can’t write at work while listening to the radio either. However,my immediate plan is to buy an iPod Shuffle for my gym work-outs so that should get me going again.
