I had fun listening to this song tonight, I had forgotten about it, and found it somewhere on my hard drive. It's from 1982 I think. :) Listen for the bass drop before the start of the last chorus. There's thumpy and analoggy bass. I won't go any more Alan Cross than that, but it's a happy fun song.

Stephen Duffy - Kiss Me

heh this one should sound familiar if you watched Global's News At Noon in the Bob McAdorey days - it was their bumper music. A few years later, someone played it off vinyl at their house - I was in shock, but then I was able to find out what it was called:

Nik Kershaw - One Of Our Fruit Machines Is Missing

I am wondering if I am imagining things or not.

When I worked at my summer job, we typically had this type of shift written down on our sched: 9-5 11-7 12-8 etc. So you would spend a total of 8 hours at work, maybe 7 or 7 1/2 doing actual work, but 30 or 60 min for unpaid lunch.

At my work right now, last week, I worked till 7:30, it's a new sched for me. I assumed I'd come in for 11:00 or 11:30. I was formally told to come in at 10:30. I thought it was odd, but it seems they want their 8 solid hours of work from us, and we spend that 9th hour on lunch.

So I'm not sure if it's typical to spend 8 hours a day at work, or 9. *confused*

Where's Friday? Who's got Friday? Is there a Friday anywhere nearby, around here? I need one soon.

I just realized I got rid of a box that my cat liked to snuggle up inside of. I feel somewhat bad for depriving my cat of... I dunno, her chosen sleeping place.

I cut my hair... I cut it myself, I'm cheap and a bit of a control freak...

anyhow I cut about 2" off it so it's a bit longer than shoulder length. Thing is, I parted it off to the side just for a change, and heh it shows more of my grey hair now. LOL.

I also went for a yearly physical, which has gained a new meaning for me: time for the blood test for cholesterol & diabetes (now that I'm over 35)

holy crap I AM gettnig old.

well I had fun at the volunteer TV baseball thingy. On the way home, I read the Eye mag that I had not picked up before, and Alain Caron is playing tonight sssshhhhhhheeeeeeeiiiiiiiitttttttt! Oh well, I've seen him play twice already, I do want to see John Scofield play, he's playing this week... w00t.

I must clean up my apartment, I'm just going to start and try not to stop. I'm a bit tired, not like a day of work, well it was, but it was volunteer working, so they can't fire you so it's more fun. Also people who are mostly young, etc., banter, fun stuff. So I am a bit more energized than normal... well... maybe not really really, but I haven't had the life sucked out of me... at least not by a day at work anyhow. My winamp has stopped working possibly due to its being outdated, so I might have to plug in the CD player if I want some housecleaning tunes. :/

So why do Macs come with the shittiest mice?

The mac at work, its original mouse, is one of those one-button dealies and as an added bonus, it has these 2 side buttons that when you do a pinching motion, it does this screen-dim-and-all-the-windows-shrink stupid thing that drives me nuts. At first, I didn't know why it was doing that. I found it impossible to get a good grip on the thing without pushing both buttons.

WIth all the R & D that goes into developing a mac, you'd think they'd put some thought into the mouse as well.

well I'm subbing in for someone else for a week... and I'm rather liking being in the driver's seat somewhere different. I worked hard last week getting my photoshop chops in shape (and MacOs X chops too for that matter) and it feels good to be doing well, without exasperated voices on the other end of the phone (so far)

also I'm listening to my iPod, cranked, to block out a loud person talking to the lady next to me (sigh) and I'm enjoying my New Order a little closer up and louder than I'm used to - my other earbuds are not as shove-in-the-ear-tight as these ones are. I like Waiting for the Siren's call, heck I like 'em all. But I figured out how to make a playlist, so I'm listening to my fave tracks of various New Order albums. The weekend was a little weird what with not much sleep, but this morning the music has put me an a really good mood.

ugh... it was cold yesterday - 8C - it was 17-20ish earlier this week, and I hate my winter coat by now, so I tried to do without it yesterday and it was COOOLLLDDD!

Earlier in the week I broke out the sandals and the "global warming" clothing - my summer sleeveless cotton blouses. I started wearing them 3-4 summers ago, because for me, the difference between knit fabrics and woven is night and day, once it gets above 25C. Before that, cotton T-shirts were fine all summer, except one time I was with my then BF driving to Nashville or somewhere in the summer.... ugh I was dying in teh car with my T-shirt.

It's supposed to be 17C today, but rainy... we shall see if I wear sandals or not... I hate wearing socks.

How have I not understood that this Chemical Brothers album, that I would like it so much? LOL I got it when my friend was dumping a bunch of CDs that she got given, that she doesn't listen to, and ha I like it quite a bit. I mean I'd heard of them, but never heard the album... I want more like it (Come With Us is the album)

Though listening to it as tired as I am, feels like I'm at a party

ugh... I need to get outside... if for no other reason than to escape the karaoke singing from the apt upstairs... LOL

I put a new tire on my bike, time to test that out. It needs a new gear cable, but since it's the front gear thingy, it's not essential.

what a LAZY LAZY sunday for me LOL

I got a free hug today, outside the coffee shop in my neighborhood. It did some good, because then I cleaned up my apartment a bit, without being asked. :D

You must speak your mind on a tricky matter. Venus will help you find the right words.

Well! I guess there's nothing like a Friday afternoon to make the Sat. horoscope so short and sweet. This SO makes me not want to go see my parents today. :P
