SD, Best Yogurt Ever, and the Top 50

San Diego is the best and I am loving my time here. My brother and I went to a ball game last night, sat right on the field (see the picture on the right), and had a blast.

We even got a baseball from Josh Bard, the Padres starting catcher. Sure, that is ball number 24 for me, but that never gets old.


Just take in the greatness that is my Yogurt Adventure earlier this week:

And if you are wondering, I had the Caramel Dream and Peanut Butter with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups mixed in.


The official start of my top 50 begins today...You got parts 1, 2, and 3 last week, but they were additions. Songs that Mattered in College, Songs that Mattered Growing Up, and Songs that I Should Like, but Hate.

Fair warning, I love me some music. I grew up with it around the house constantly. It lifts my moods (or, like some songs by Sarah McLachlan, drop them). I don't drive in the car without it. Often times, if you see me on the freeway I might look like this...really, just ask Claire.

You will see a very eclectic mix on this list. R&B and Country don't show up much, but you will see some Rap, Dance, Classic Rock, Top 40, and even some classical type. I am sure most of you don't really care, but I have had a lot of fun coming up with the list so I thought I would share.
As a disclaimer, these songs are my favorite. I don't necessarily consider them the best songs ever, but they are songs that I turn the radio up EVERY TIME they come on. I sing them loud. I know all the words. They make me happy.

#50 - Werewolves of London - Warren Zevon...I love this song. I love drinking Pina Colada's, so I am sure that helps.

#49 - Bellagio Italia (Time to Say Goodbye) - Andre Bocelli & Sara Brightman...Amazing song. Both of their voices make this song crazy good. Sometimes when it comes on I stop what I am doing, close my eyes and just listen. I seem to do that a lot. I might have a problem. And yes, if you are wondering, Bocelli is blind.

#48 - Great Balls of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis...Thank you Goose for showing me the greatness of this song. And thank you Jerry for making it better.

#47 - Man in the Box - Alice in Chains...I love this song. Okay, I love all these songs, but for some reason I rock out pretty hard here. I don't know why, but I even change my voice to try and sound like him. I am a dork.

#46 - I Can't Make You Lolve Me - Bonnie Raitt...Remember when I mentioned about songs that can bring your mood down? This is one of them, but sometimes that can be a good thing.

Is Bard on your fantasy team?

Everything about going to a baseball game in SD is amazing. From the park to the downtown to the ice cream helmets.

Sarah McLachlan high five!

Bogart! Dude! You commented on my blog today. Twice! It totally made my day. I feel like a 14 year old girl who wrote a fan letter to Duran Duran, and Simon LeBon himself wrote her back! Oh wow, I just realized that might make you a little afraid of me. I am totally normal. I swear. No really. I love your blog and have been lurking for a few months now. To think you read mine is just, wow, surreal. And two of the posts where I am talking about being crazy. I'm not helping myself here, am I? Anyhoo, no you are not crazy for being excited to have kids some day. They are the best. But there are days.... And yes, my son Derek is an old soul. He's the most amazing kid. You guys could probably hang out now except you're a stranger and I'm kind of against that. But he LOVES baseball, so you have that in common too. Alas, he is a Yankee fan (gasp!). But has been known to go head to head with men three times his age on baseball trivia . . . and win! Okay so I just realized this was a really long comment and that's not what "normal" people do, so I am going to go now. Thanks for making my day. Oh and thanks for the peanut butter cup frozen yogurt craving. Did you not read my post about falling off the wagon??

I sing in the mini like I'm on stage before a sold out crowd. I have given up being ashamed of being seen. The other day I was leaving work, and a coworker called - who followed me home from an off-site event the week prior - called out to tell me I had an impressive front seat performance style. So I say 'Rock on, Bogart. Rock. On.'

btw, is "Rock On" anywhere on your list? I'll wait and see!

The Charming Hedonist said...

Um, I L-O-V-E love Warewolves of
London! Excellent choice Bogie!

Scarlett Wanna Be said...

Bogart, I've missed you...but not in an inappropriate way, nothing but classy missin' comin' from me! Did you know that we will be in your area in a few months? Big Daddy's true love is there, his name is Pete. Maybe, if we all continue to be friends, we can meet up with you and your lady.

Katelin said...

24 baseballs?!?! i am so jealous. i have yet to get one at a game. i need your luck.

kpellatiro said...

Yogurt Mill!!! (( C'mon Bogie - you know you love you some east county ))

Love the undertaking of this list. Having accidentally knocked over a couple hundred of your CDs in the past (blame your roomate)... you're an expert here.

Bogart in P Towne said...

William - No, sadly I try to stay away from my Padres...I have a clouded view of their worth.

Amy - It really is great!

RS27 - I like other parks better, but I really have nothing to complain about.

WWoW - Soon enough you will.

April - I enjoyed it.

DKG - As long as you don't pick your nose while driving. Something about that is so wrong.

CH - Told you we could hang.

Scarlett - SD or P-Towne?

Katelin - Just got to know who to ask...not all have been HR's or Foul Balls (although many have)...

KP - I still owe you for that little mishap.
