Today is a day for much rejoicing – despite waking up with the flu, I have only…
ONE MONTH LEFT!
(And I am quite determined to not go over. The Bwun and I will not be friends if he comes later than February 28.)
(Well, we probably will be friends anyway. But I’ll remind him that I suffered for a long time. Too long.)
This weekend I got a new pair of ultra-comfortable socks. They’re warm, they fit well, they have those little rubber grippers on the bottom, and I didn’t have to pay for them.
Well, mostly. All I had to do was have the Romgi drive me down to the Payson hospital in the middle of the night, through the thickest fog I’ve ever seen in my life.
And that’s like free, right?
Don’t worry, life is still fantastically good – I just got another bag of Mother’s Cookies thanks to ‘Sposita!
The weather has been a lot nicer over the past few days – no snow, which is great, and the sun’s been out quite a bit even if the temperature is still much too low. Today I decided to take advantage of the melting snow to clean the steps going down to our apartment. We never swept during fall, so leaves collected, got rained on, were buried under snow and ice…I thought it would be nice to have tidy, clean steps.
Once I finished sweeping and throwing away all the leaves, I thought, Our doormat is yucky. It’s soaking wet and quite dirty from all the abuse it’s endured over the past seven months. I should wash it.
To some of you, this is an obviously stupid idea. To me, however, it seemed like washing a bathmat. I had no clue that this would happen:
So I guess Monday I’ll be cleaning the washer, and buying a new doormat.
I did it, guys.
Today at 6:57am I opened my last remaining bag of Mother’s Cookies.
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m kind of odd.
To me, songs are very linked to colors. A while ago (like 3 years) I decided to make several compilations of songs that I felt were roughly the same color. Yes, I know it sounds strange.
May I present: marigold.
1 Matchbox 20 – Shame
2 Norah Jones – Carnival Town
3 Enya – Smaointe
4 Jim Brickman – Sweet Dreams
5 Kenny Chesney – Anything But Mine
6 Foo Fighters – Aurora
7 Hans Zimmer, from Gladiator – Now We Are Free
8 Barenaked Ladies – Light Up My Room
9 Joao Gilberto – La Chica de Ipanema
10 Enya – Afer Ventus
11 The Cranberries – Dreams
12 The Bee Gees – How Deep is Your Love
13 Sting – Fields of Gold
14 The Beatles – In My Life
15 Amos Lee – Colors
16 Stroke 9 – Tail of the Sun
Obviously (ha ha ha) this is imperfect – Dreams and How Deep is Your Love are both more blue-green-teal than marigold, so they really don’t belong here at all; In My Life is totally white; Colors is hard to categorize, for obvious reasons; and Tail of the Sun is a bit more orangey-red than marigold. But I’m happy with it for now.
What have you learned about me and my taste in music from this?
Oh yes. I’m quite odd.
