Loose Ends and Randomness

Don't say I didn't warn you that this was entirely random (at best)...

Yesterday, I discussed the previous night's lack of sleep. I'm happy to report the problem didn't stretch into a second night. As a matter of fact, quite the opposite. Of course, that could have something to do with the sore throat and sneezing. Ugh. Is there no happy medium?

In that very same post I discussed the ongoing saga of my tempermental heat. Well, a very kind man came out and fixed it...uh...twice yesterday and now its all good. Of course, the minute the dude left, I realized how nice it was outside so I flung open all the windows. How's that for a bit of irony?

So, I was also poking around the internetwebosphere after my other post and found something so mind-numbingly frightening that I was scared to the very core of my being. Fan fiction. For a cheesy, thirty year-old Saturday morning kids show. *shudder* Hold me.

On a completely different tangent, you'll be happy to know that I've finally managed to get my iPod and iTunes installed on my laptop which means music at work. Top ten songs on today's playlist: Transatlanticism (Deathcab for Cutie), Rock n Roll Singer (Mark Kozelek), Anthem (Phantom Planet), Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking (Snow Patrol), Something In My Eye (Ed Harcourt), Let You Down (Trespassers William), Ten Years Ahead (The Soundtrack of Our Lives), Something (Cary Brothers), Good News (Brad), and The Blower's Daughter (Damien Rice).

This is a random comment, completely unrelated to your random post (awesome music picks, by the way, and congrats on music at work!):

How has quitting smoking been?

Ah fanfic ;) My secret snarky-reading pleasure...

What I often wonder is why some of the really creative good writers don't create their own characters. Seems a waste...

Ed Harcourt has mad skillz; listened to his new CD at Borders yesterday. Check out Mason Jennings if you haven't already.

It feels very odd to me that I have never heard of any of the songs or bands in your top 10. I am truly a music nerd.

Fan fiction seems weird and frightening until you actually run into good fan fiction. Then you begin actively seeking fan fiction, until you become afraid of yourself.

I'm not stating this from experience, no, not at all...

Oh, The Blower's Daughter, why do I love you so? Nice work on getting tuned up at work. Feel better!

Posted by: bmh at March 23, 2005 12:25 PM

Oh good, so you'll be nice and productive at work then. ;)

Today is all about randomness for me too. Oh, and when we had our A/C fixed? I turned on the heat when the guy left. Yep.

Posted by: Kitty at March 23, 2005 12:50 PM

Oh, I hope you're not getting the evil cold that I had. It was truly horrible.

Land of the Lost? Terrified me when I was growing up. It would be interesting to see it now.

You realize that the AC is going to break in about 2 weeks now, right?

Posted by: Jon in Michigan at March 23, 2005 02:12 PM

My whole thought process is based on randomness ;)

Posted by: Chrissie at March 23, 2005 02:59 PM

Deathcab for do these artists come-up with their names? Some are obvious--but "Deathcab for Cutie" I just don't know...OH! And I've almost convinced myself to buy Cary Brothers' "All Rage." Do you have that one?

Bad fanfiction, yeah. Good times. Makes you appreciate good fanfic even more.
