Drained (Or, TGIT)

I'm absolutely drained this week. So many things I have to get done. So many things I want to get done. Of course, there aren't enough hours in the day for them all. Where I'm usually awake without much of a fight, I've been sleeping through my alarm all week, dreading throwing my legs over the edge of the bed planting feet on the floor.

On the plus side, today, for me, is Friday. I'm cobbling together a long weekend by taking a few days off. Standing betwen me and the long weekend, however, are hours and hours of meetings. Hopefully, a little music will help me make it through the day. I give you the top 20 random music selections for the morning.

As Tall As Lions - Why We Cry At The Movies
No Man - Pink Moon
Coldplay - Clocks (live)
Our Lady Peace - Picture
The Hold Steady - Hornets! Hornets!
Gomez - Sweet Virginia
The Mars Volta - The Widow
All American Rejects - Move Along
Audioslave - Heaven's Dead
Blow Up Hollywood - Floating
Soundgarden - Slaves & Bulldozers
Ben Folds - Bastard
XTC - Boarded Up
Brad - Brothers and Sisters
Elbow - Teardrop
Fountains of Wayne - Bright Future In Sales
Rob Dickinson - Don't Change
Joseph Arthur - Speed Of Light
Mott The Hoople - All The Young Dudes
Robyn Hitchcock - I Often Dream of Trains

Happy Thursday, everyone.

I feel the same way this week--so much to do and definitely not enough time to do it all. Unfortunately, if I want to listen to music in my lab, I'm stuck with the radio and the 1 station it picks up--an all talk sports channel.

Oh, I so hear you this week. I have been dragging ass all week, but cannot take a day off.

Posted by: jen at February 16, 2006 8:04 AM

Ahhh, it seems to be an epidemic. A week worth of Mondays for everyone *groan*

I get to spend 8 hours in meetings then 6 hours in the car traveling north. I'll wave as I drive through!

Hang in there, enjoy your long weekend! Smooch your girls....they'll make you feel better.

It would surprise me to find that you didn't Mike Doughty's, Haughty Melodic but if not, I've been listening to that non-stop for like a week.

I had a huge project thrown in my lap that has made me consider taking hostages and Haughty Melodic is the only thing preventing that.

Here's to you getting through your meetings without too much guff, finishing the day with some java and a smile & resftul and relaxing few days off.

The Force will be with you...always.

Today is my Friday too... and the last day at my job. I start the New Thing on Monday! I'm excited, and kinda dreading the whole "moving" thing.

Posted by: amber at February 16, 2006 8:17 AM

hey...chris...check out Big City Rock.
it's my brother in law's brother's band (that came out sounding VERY Ferris Bueller-ish, didn't it?). they are pretty great. i think you'd like them.

Posted by: ali at February 16, 2006 8:25 AM

It's been a long, rough week here, too. Hang in there, you've almost made it!

Posted by: Kris at February 16, 2006 8:43 AM

I hope your long weekend refreshes & renews!

Posted by: That Girl at February 16, 2006 9:00 AM

Enjoy your weekend. I've had a week like that too. Piled into bed at 7 last night (just for a few minutes) and woke up at 4:00 a.m.

I like your setup with the email letting me know when you've done something. Bloglines works well but this is even better.

Happy Thursday!

Posted by: Fraulein N at February 16, 2006 9:18 AM

Happy Thursday, indeed. It's been a crap week around here too so here's hoping for a great weekend. It's snowing and freezing here. I'm NOT happy about that.

I'll check out some of those tunes...you always have good suggestions....

Posted by: VirgoJen at February 16, 2006 9:27 AM

Sweet playlist! Hope the day goes by quickly for you.

Posted by: Alison at February 16, 2006 9:49 AM

Damn it, I want a day off! SOOO not fair!

Posted by: Queen of Ass at February 16, 2006 10:01 AM

Remember "Lamb Chop" sang..."this is the song that would not end..yes it goes on and on my friends..."
Here is my version: "This is the week that would not end..yes it goes on and on my friends.."
AND-to top it off we are getting a huge winter storm tonight. Just in time to put my life in danger gettng to work tomorrow. Yipee!

Posted by: Jamie at February 16, 2006 10:33 AM

How do you get that amazing "glow" in your photos? (Also, I haven't printed the picture yet, but I have the frame and label all ready to go! I'll let you know how it looks when I finally get around to it.)

Posted by: mom on a wire at February 16, 2006 11:09 AM

Well deserved rest coming right up. Hang in there!

Posted by: Wicked H at February 16, 2006 11:13 AM

Hope the meetings go by fast. Enjoy your long weekend. Mine's only a 3-day one, but I am so looking forward to it!

Posted by: Jessie at February 16, 2006 11:33 AM

must be a universal state. i have a big project i am working on, i'm behind on that; and i have house guests this weekend, and the house is a mess. guh!

Posted by: jodi at February 16, 2006 11:34 AM

I know how you feel! I am, thankfully, at home today. But only because I worked waaaay too many hours last week! And I am one of the unlucky ones who does not have Monday off. Hang in there, and have a great weekend!

Posted by: catbird at February 16, 2006 12:38 PM

The only thing that's getting me through the day today is the knowledge that tonight? Is the night I see Bea Arthur! LIVE! On Stage!


Posted by: Vaguely Urban at February 16, 2006 12:48 PM

Happy Virtual Friday! They really are the best, once you get past the To-do list jitters.

Posted by: Bethany at February 16, 2006 12:58 PM

My God, it's Thursday all ready. Frickin' hell.

Posted by: Ginny at February 16, 2006 1:02 PM

Somebody else who listens to Brad? Cool!

Posted by: Heather at February 16, 2006 1:32 PM

It's rather stunning how many people are having a ridiculously long week, eh? I'll be inordinately happy when Friday night comes along.

Posted by: Heather at February 16, 2006 2:28 PM

Jealous of your days off. Enjoy.

(I have tried and tried to like Robyn Hitchcock and I just...can't. Why?)

(I just got a new Neko Case CD from the library yesterday. I am loving it, by the way.)

There must be something in the water, because this has been an insanely long week for me too (second in a row). And to make it worse, I've been off all week and thinking it's one day later than it is. Today feels so much like Friday even though I'm not pulling a Cactus and taking tomorrow off, and that just makes the week even longer. It would look pretty suspicious to call in sick tomorrow and get a four-day weekend, huh?

I like all the music I recognize from your playlist (esp Mars Volta, Ben Folds, XTC, Mott...) so I'm using it to come up with a "music to check out" list. Hope you don't mind.

It better not suck.

Posted by: Fake Rake at February 16, 2006 5:19 PM

I'm with you. I wish it were Friday. And I wish my company cared about president's day.

Posted by: Melissa at February 16, 2006 6:47 PM

I'm "laid off" again from tomorrow, but I'll be back Wedensday or sooner, most likely. Still, finding out about this with two hours left to go in the day took it from "aw crap, another day tomorrow" to "holy hell, it's a bizarro long weekend!"

Posted by: Gavin at February 16, 2006 8:04 PM

Totally know the feeling. That's a great mix though. If Audioslave can't get you going, you're really in trouble! Enjoy your long weekend!

Posted by: TB at February 16, 2006 8:12 PM

Today was my rough day - getting harassed by a psycho chick in the parking garage, feeling like I got nothing done at work, and finding out my hubby has a few more cysts in his lungs. Today was a total waste of makeup.

The only plus side was hearing that we might get the restaurant after all. So, wheee! Good news finds me!

I hope you had a great weekend!

Posted by: Kitty at February 16, 2006 8:13 PM

Seems like the not enough time bug is going around.

Have a good long weekend

Posted by: beanhead at February 16, 2006 9:16 PM

I guess Mia's lack of sleep is finally getting to you. Try to get some quality sleep this weekend if you can, but don't forget to let Beth get some sleep too!

Posted by: Beth in StL at February 16, 2006 11:20 PM

Please get some sleep this weekend (or I guess I should beg Mia to let you get some sleep this weekend.) Sounds like you are in need of some couch time. :-)

Posted by: Lisa B at February 17, 2006 12:37 AM

Nice musical choices, there...I LOVE Ben Folds.
Have a great long weekend with the family! :)
