Tia’s Conundrum
(It’s been a while, I know)

My last post got me thinking.

If I were forced into excel, stranded on a desert island, or for some other unfathomable reason required to live out my days away for civilization, what 5 cds would I take?

This is a question that has no answer. EVER. I could never decide. I would go nuts just trying to choose. I can’t even go out of town for a day without taking 20 cds. I was in Baltimore today. I flew out this morning at 7a.m and I’m writing this on the plane ride home at 9p.m. I will have only been on planes for 4 ½ hours, tops, and I was in the car for an hour and a half and that’s only because I got stuck in rush hour traffic this evening. The rest of the time I was at the hospital working. I took at least 12 cds with me for the day. Why? Because there is always the fear that you’re going to want to listen to something and you’re not have it. Now granted, on this particular junket I only listened to 4 of the 12 cds I brought with me, but it’s the principle of the thing. What if I’d wanted to listened to Raze’s “Oh How I Need You” and not had it? I’d rather have too many than too few.

So I pose this query: If you could only have 5 cds for the rest of your days what would you pick?

I cannot believe that I even asked this question. But I want other people to suffer like I have trying to weed down their collections of hundreds to FIVE.

The only rule is that multi-disc sets DO NOT count as ONE cd. So if you choose Stevie Wonder’s “At The Close of a Century” that’s 4 cds. Not one.

Happy choosing.
