darn those catchy tunes

Music, it's everywhere, it's imaginative and most of all, it reflects who you are as a person.
But it can also influence what we say and do. For those who are fellow Twi-Hards, I'm sure you know that   Stephanie Meyer has play lists posted on her website, giving you some of the songs that influence the characters, events and outcomes. Would Bella be as we know her to be? Would Jacob have been the one she ended up with if Stephanie Meyer had chosen to listen to Coldplay as opposed to Muse?
So my question for the day is have you ever made a choice based on the music you listen to? I know I certainly have,  though whether the outcome was for the best or not is another story...
Another question for you is have you ever made a decision for music? Have you ever gone out for a walk and come back with a grand piano? I'm sure there are plenty of people who have made such a big decision on a whim, and please be honest and share your stories.
I'm sure your wondering how this is related to putting ideas to paper, but it does, even the greatest authors are inspired by music. In fact, without music would society be as we know it??????
So, I guess what I'm trying ask you is how important is music to you????????? And what songs have influenced you most, and don't be ashamed, when I was five, the Wiggles had a big influence on my life too!!!!!! Some of the songs I most listen to are: 9 Crimes by Damien Rice, Twilight, by Vanessa Carlton and Closing Credits: Bolero written by Steve Sharples!!!! So come on and tell the world what music is most important to you!!!!

Personal Gods

I'm sure you're all familiar with Greek Mythology, I'm hoping you've all debated with Zeus and Poseidon, you've all told Hades that just because he's the king of the underworld it doesn't mean he should stop cleaning his teeth or brushing his hair, that you've all watched Hestia work her homely and humble magic and you've all tried to explain to Ares that war doesn't solve every thing.
But every body has different ideas about the appearance and personality of the Gods.
Earlier in the week my English teacher told us to write a description of Mount Olympus- the taste and smell of the air, the sight of the Gods at their most vulnerable even the sound of Zeus losing his temper... again, she told us to write a description of a God and their foe and then write an incident that happened, it could even be as simple as the Gods you described being responsible for losing the recipe in the Ferrero Rocher ad. And the variations of each God was amazing, which got me thinking (you'll learn that this can end VERY badly!), who are the Gods upon Mt. Olympus, is Zeus a stuck up wimp or a brave, courageous hero? Is Poseidon part of the ocean that he rules or can't he swim? Is Hestia perfectly clean or is her bedroom as messy as every teenage girl's on the planet?
It is very much a personal question of character, and I, being the nosey person that I am, am very curious about who you think the Gods in Greek Mythology are.
So, if you're actually reading this, leave a short message about what you think, or even write your own story.
I am genuinely interested, and I hope that my curiosity has started you thinking, it doesn't even stop at Gods, who is Harry Potter? Who is Bella Swan? And dare I say, is Mr. Darcy actually as hot as you hoped.

Thanks for stopping by!
