This tag was on my sister-in-laws blog & I liked it, so even though she didn't tag me, (thanks for thinking of me, Schmath) I'm doing it. If that is some sort of blogging faux-pas, I apologize. And again, it's a long post. Sorry.

I'd just like to say out of a million blogs I read yours gets the gold medal for the playlist I love the best.
Quite often I'll leave your page up so I can listen to your music.
I dunno if you want a gold medal from me, but you got it.

Celeste said...

Melissa!!! That is the greatest compliment ever! My music is such a part of me that I take it very personally when people don't like it, and when they do. (stupid, I know, but whatevs.) Apparentley we like the same music. We need to go to concerts together then, huh? If you're free tomorrow, Alkaline Trio is playing, but I can't make it and it makes me ever so sad..... You should go.
