rock ‘n’ roll fridays: sting

Sting.
The song titles from which we took the lyrics are in caps. Here’s Rock ‘n Roll Fridays!

1. DESERT ROSE: This desert flower, no sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this…
What is your favorite scent?

i love the scent of the jasmine flower, but one scent that has really been helping me lately is lavender. well, obviously not now, as i’m still up. but i love it, it’s a calming scent.

2. EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE: Every move you make, every vow you break, every smile you fake, every claim you stake, I’ll be watching you.
Ever stalked or researched an old flame?

not stalked, but i have googled/facebooked old flames, yes. just wanted to see how happy they were.

3. IF I EVER LOSE MY FAITH IN YOU: I never saw no miracle of science
that didn’t go from a blessing to a curse…
What product did you buy that didn’t do what it claimed?

there have been a few! i like to watch those informercials late at night and then i get sucked in and get them, and then they don’t work. i remember the nail one i was so excited to get and it didn’t even work! no wonder that informercial got removed so quickly!

4. IF YOU NEED SOMEBODY SET THEM FREE: If you need somebody, call my name.
If you want someone, you can do the same…
Do you have a nickname or have you been called something other than your given name?

yes, i do. my mom has a nickname for me, which makes me feel all warm and cozy when i hear it spoken. my sisters have a nickname for me that irritates me. they got it from a cousin who tried to spell my name but spelt it wrong, so they call me by the misspelling. bleah. now their husbands call me that, too. double bleah.

5. WE WORK THE BLACK SEAM: One day in a nuclear age they may understand our rage. They build machines that they can’t control and bury the waste in a great big hole…
What do you do that is considered “Green”?

um. i buy green detergents and stuff; i try to stay away from the heavy chemicals. i also recycle a lot.

6. MOON OVER BOURBON STREET: It was many years ago that I became what I am, I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb…
What was the worst job you ever had?

my current one.

7. I BURN FOR YOU… In peace we sleep entwined and your love flows through me. Though an ocean soothes my head, I burn for you…
What is the worst thing about sleeping with someone else in a bed?

wow. i like that lyric. i think the only bad thing about sleeping with someone is if that someone is a kicker.

8. FORTRESS AROUND YOUR HEART: And if I built this fortress around your heart,Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire, then let me build a bridge, for I cannot fill the chasm…
What object or piece of furniture have you built?

i built the coffee table when i was in eighth grade industrials arts class. i also built all my bookshelves, and a clock or two.

9. ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK: I don’t drink coffee I take tea my dear, I like my toast done on one side, and you can hear it in my accent when I talk, I’m an Englishman in New York…
Do you require special preparation for a food or drink in a restaurant?

no. but it annoys me to hear others do that.

10. FIELDS OF GOLD: I never made promises lightly, and there have been some that I’ve broken. But I swear in the days still left we’ll walk in the fields of gold…
What was the last promise you made?

we’d go out today. but since i’m still up…that’s looking highly unlikely…

11. CONSIDER ME GONE: To search for perfection is all very well, but to look for Heaven is to live here in Hell. After today, consider me gone…
What was the worst way you ever broke up in a relationship?

all my relationships ended the same way–i was left for another woman. i never did the actual breaking up; my exes did that for me. i was broken up with by email twice. how nice is that?

12. THE RUSSIANS: How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer’s deadly toy, there is no monopoly in common sense on either side of the political fence…
What is your biggest fear of danger?

getting hurt or possibly dying?

13. BRAND NEW DAY: How many lonely, sleepless nights, how many lies, how many fights, and why would you want to put yourself through all that again?
Do you prefer being married or single?

i’ve never been married, so i wouldn’t know. but the journey to get there has been rough. would it be nice and easy after the journey is over? or would it be even worse? i guess it’s something i won’t ever get to find out.
