Maaaan life is good! I was feeling great and whistling as I picked up the mail from my bin this morning, fifteen minutes early to work, saying good morning to my boss. I even t'rew up half of my morning tea (I think it was a Vitamin C pill that disagreed with my empty tummy) but I'm STILL in a great mood!

Life is great! I started getting a cold a week ago (sore throat in the mornings), but it didn't get medicine-worthy until Sunday (and believe you me, I hit the Sudafed at the first sign of trouble), and it's already almost entirely gone! I am wearing a new sweater today, and new brown pants. I just started my Christmas shopping, but I've already received some presents-to-be in the mail! I went to Target yesterday and found flannel sheets for myself for twenty bucks. I got an S-video cable for my Wii at GameStop, and found canned chipotle peppers as I had hoped (not at GameStop). I'm going to cook a new recipe tonight, which I haven't done in quite some time. Last night my boyfriend fed me (and Dave and Andrew) truly delicious (and not too bad for me) chicken parmesan, all moist and wonderful and not Too Much anything. I am going to make an apron for my mom for Christmas. And my cat loves me, and he's a little bit sick, but I'm taking him to the vet on Monday like a good mom/roommate. And I'm reconnecting with people from my past who I've missed. And I went out last weekend with my brother and his friends, and had a great time. And I'm getting up early to go Christmas shopping at outlet stores with two of my best friends on Saturday. And I'm seeing a play directed by another friend Saturday night, with yet another friend I haven't seen in almost a year. And I've been at this job for five months and I still really like it. And and and.

Life is good, my friends. I wish there were more hours in the day.

It's a They Might Be Giants song ("Upside Down Frown") from their newest album (The Else).

Chou beat me to it, but I must add that if you don't have the latest album, you should get it! It is pretty damn good. Especially "The Cap'm."

At first I wasn't sold, but I totally love The Else. My favorites are "I'm Impressed" and "The Mesopotamians." They are GREAT songs for getting ready in the morning 'cause they really get me rockin for the day.

I agree! (Well, with the first sentence; I'm too . . . sleepy to listen to music in the mornings? That doesn't make sense, but is true.) I think the last few They albums take a while to exhibit their brilliance. Although I do feel as though every song (except for Upside Down Frown, I LOVE Flansy's backup vocals on that one) sound like either a Linnell Song or a Mono Puff Song, and that makes me sad. (Especially since I'm not as enamored with Mono Puff songs as I am with Linnell or TMBG songs). But that might just be me letting my expectations color my views of the album.

I like a dance party in the morning to get properly woken up, but I've finally come to realize that I am, in fact, a Morning Person who really wishes she were a Night Person, not the other way around.

That's a really good point! There have definitely been changes in their sound over the years (which is to be expected), but where before there was mostly a THEY sound, now things seem more distinct between the two Johns. Which is exactly what you said. Hmmmmm. Interesting.

Little Britain

Which if you haven't seen it you should go put it in your netflixx queue and bump it to the top!
