just another manic monday

1 Comment

So far today I have managed to finish approximately half my list of things to do.  Which isn’t so bad, since the day is about half over.  Can I keep up my momentum?  Who knows!  Here’s hoping as Christmas is looming and I have a ton of stuff to do.

Ha!  The Stephen Colbert episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent is on right now.  So funny to see him be all dramatic.

I was reminded by Rhi’s song of the day post that I’ve been meaning to post this forever:  House of Regret – Wild Sweet Orange (click to download).  I love this album (thanks, Rhi!!), and the more I listen to it, the more I hear something else I love.  “Ten Dead Dogs” is an amazing song, but this week, “House of Regret” is winning me over, it is most especially the lines:

And you crawl up those steps and read yourself to sleep
Yeah, you crawl up those steps and sing yourself to peace

It’s raining.  I am certainly not going to complain about too much rain.  Especially after 18+ months of drought here.  But man, GLOOMY.  Also there is some sort of ice storm forecast, which means I may or may not get all my outside errands done.  Or that I should rush out and do them now, in case tomorrow really is full of weather disasters.

  1. I am so happy that you’re loving the Wild Sweet Orange album. I agree that the more I listen to it the more I find things to love about it. Also, my favorite song keeps shifting, which is always a good sign.
