There's a justin Timberlake song that ppl have been playing on the jukebox at my bar that I seem to really like. At least compared to all the other mumble hip hop that usually gets played there. Sadly, I don't know the name of it. But it has some bongo/congo's in it which I'm a sucker for.

MF boy band you are afraid to admit to not hating.

Are Chihuahuas from Mexico bigger than US dogs? There's an apartment complex nearby where most of the residents are Hispanic, and a lot of them have what look exactly like Chihuahuas, except that they are about the size of Jack Russels. They also are a lot less yappier than the smaller ones.

My main impression of Chihuahuas comes from one that used to nip at my ankles when I delivered my newspapers. Miguel. Never broke the skin, but made holes in the cuffs of my jeans.

Do duos count? Then definitely the Indigo Girls.

Mine (Fawn dog) is about 10 or so pounds. A little smaller than the chihuahua/jack russel mix we had (Polly dog, 18ish lbs, RIP). She (Fawny) is from the mean streets of Panorama City. Someone found her just wandering around. Not too sure of her lineage.

Yeah, that's about as strong as mine are/were.






I'll let someone else answer this:

MF Blondie song.

It's a tossup between "Love Divine, All Love's Excelling," and "Amazing Grace" (the latter especially as sung by Judy Collins).
