What's Your Ringtone?
One of the nice things about my new phone is that I don't have to buy ringtones anymore, I can make my own from MP3s. So I got to thinking about what ringtones I wanted for my main contacts. judiang was actually online when I started my quest and when I asked which song from my collection she thought should be her ringtone, she chose "Linus and Lucy." Gee, pick a quiet one, why don't you? ;-) Still, I upped the volume on it and it's set as her ringtone. Some folks were easy to pick for, others not so much. I knew that Amy's ringtone had to be a Heart tune, so I picked "Crazy on You." Dad's got the Muppet Show theme. It was another day before I'd decided that mom's should be "The Mississippi Squirrel Revival."

Later I got to thinking, what would I like my ringtone to be for other people? Should I go for something whimsical like the Sesame Street theme, or something that expresses one of my favorite things, like the Pink Panther theme? Or do I pick music from one of my favorite groups like Chumbawamba ("Just Deserts")? My default ringtone I think will be excellent for getting my attention (MacKeel's "Star of the County Down") so maybe I want my ringtone for others to be equally attention grabbing. It's a heady decision when you think about it.

Poll #1152110 What's your Ringtone?

What should be your Ringtone to other people?

I'm sensing a theme in these responses. (:

This is what I use on my phone:

Default ring tone: "Doctor Who" theme (Eccleston era - Murray Gold)
Mum: "Torchwood" theme
Sister: "Fish Heads" by Barnes & Barnes
Wife: Imperial March theme from "The Empire Strikes Back"

In December, I change my default ring tone to "Jingle Bells" as sung by Robert Goulet on "The Simpsons". ("Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg...")

My sis-in-law suggested "Baby Got Back" as her own ringtone. I laughed and said "Yup, I've got that song." But then I wondered if she'd prefer "Fat-Bottomed Girls" instead. (Also in my collection.) She replied with a quiet "yes" apparently. Heh.

There is a mahjongg for Xp. I had it on CD. I can't recall the name right now however.

I'm looking for one on the mac. I'd love to find people t play with in person again tho. my mahjongg set is gathering dust (which I guess just gave away the answer.. so shhh don't tell ;)

and why do I have the feeling I may have done this kind of poll before *eyes peoples answers.. *

Ah, I'd love to have a Mah Jongg set. Things just haven't manifested such that I've gotten one. Someday, perhaps. :-)

Of course then I'll be in the same bind as you - will need someone to play it with. Hell, I'd like to play it in person sometime myself - only ever played it on the PC.

As for my poll, I keep being wishy washy on what I'd like to have as my ringtone to others. Today it's "Mama Bee" by Neil Innes. Heh.

It is much better in person. =) I happen to have two mahjong sets. one (my personal fav) is a travel set (it just doesn't have the trays) The other is in case and has all sorts of stuff. I don't think I've used the larger set yet.

You, Judi, and Elsa should play next time your together. =)

I'm still looking for the pc version I had - it was quite good. I'm not finding a like version for the mac side - yet.

What is the ringtone today? =)
