It’s Friday already?

Holy Moly!! Only a few more hours to make sure all the weekly deadlines are met!

Jeesh, where does the time go, hey?

“Like smoke through a keyhole” – Edward Cole, The Bucket List.

Yeah, I watched that movie last night … so wait for the inevitable Bucket List post LOL =)

I’m feeling a bit better today. Physically, that is – I think my body is managing to kill the Bitch Bug inside me. The head pain has been reduced to a loud, annoying thump and I’m not aching all over anymore. I can see my monitor properly today and I can even swallow. (SheBee: stay AWAY from that one!!!)

Otherwise, I’m doing ok … not great, I must confess, but a tad more positive than yesterday. At least I managed to get a decent night’s sleep – a whole 8 hours on the trot! That’s a biggie for me. I haven’t slept that well in like forever.

To all those incredible people who contacted me with the most amazing offers of help yesterday … wow … wOw … WOW!!!  Bless you all xxx

Mmk, I have a LOT of catching up to do so I MUST get cracking now. Miss Boats is going to fire me if I don’t get my work finished today =)

*fires up iTunes* … The Slip looks like a good option.

Happy Fridayness =)

Every Day Is Exactly The Same

My anthem for today, courtesy Nine Inch Nails.

I believe I can see the future
Cause I repeat the same routine
I think I used to have a purpose
But then again
That might have been a dream
I think I used to have a voice
Now I never make a sound
I just do what I’ve been told
I really don’t want them to come around

Oh, no

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I can feel their eyes are watching
In case I lose myself again
Sometimes I think I’m happy here
Sometimes, yet I still pretend
I can’t remember how this got started
But I can tell you exactly how it will end

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I’m writing on a little piece of paper
I’m hoping someday you might find
Well I’ll hide it behind something
They won’t look behind
I’m still inside here
A little bit comes bleeding through
I wish this could have been any other way
But I just don’t know, I don’t know what else I can do

Musical flavours of the month

I *wish* I was a musician – I’d be a drummer =)

I have TONS of stuff in my iTunes library (yes, I still buy CD’s) and sometimes it’s difficult to choose what to listen to. These are the albums that top my list at the moment, stuff I’m loving right now.

  • NIN – The Slip. This one is a totally free download! (Thanks to Kat for blogging about this.)
  • Three Days Grace – One X
  • One Republic – Dreaming Out Loud
  • Linkin Park – Minutes to Midnight
  • Breaking Benjamin – Phobia. If ONLY they’d come and play in South Africa, but Benjamin Burnley has a phobia about flying. No, really!
  • Muse – Everything!! Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry, Hullabaloo, Absolution, Black Holes & Revelations, H.A.A.R.P.
  • Jeff Buckley – Grace. Mmk, this one will ALWAYS be at the top of my list. I think I listen to him every day =)

What about you?
What’s topping your charts right now?


And it’s STILL pissing down outside!

This is some seriaaaas weather we’re having here in the Cape … non-stop wild storming for 7 days and near-Arctic temperatures. Winter is not my season anyway, so you can just imagine how much I’m loving this. Not.

Two days ago my garden was a big mooshy mess, now it’s totally flooded! And my swimming pool looks like it’s on the verge of overflowing too. Yikes.

Worst of all, I have MORE leaks in my roof, and the drips are coming down a lot faster and harder than before. I’ve called the roofing chaps again this morning, left YET ANOTHER MESSAGE … Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Well, I’ve had a very late start to the day – I just couldn’t get out of bed this morning! Cold + Dark + Wet + Windy + Too Early + Head Pain + Sleeping Pill Hangover = Stay Under The Covers Girl.

Anyway, enough griping =) Today I have a stupid amount of work to do, so I’d better get started *yawn*. I think I’ll have to end my coffee drought just now and give in to a big caffeine fix.

*inserts ear thumps and browses iTunes library … selects NIN The Slip*
