Wow, I just realised it's December. I'm running three days slow.
I need book suggestions. I'm planning a trip to the secondhand bookstore sometime on the holidays. My favourite genre's action, and I like anything along the lines of Clancy, Grisham, Matthew Reilly, and Jeffrey Archer. Nonfiction's also good. Thanks.
You know what's weird? Though I'm sitting here with music playing through my speakers, I'm still wearing my not-plugged-in headphones. I'm so used to wearing them. And they were plugged in earlier. But I don't feel right without them. Before I took them off my old computer, I kept on thinking "Where the hell are my headphones? Why is the sound coming out of SPEAKERS?" It's nice to have a computer with speakers that work ... but I like my headphones.
What was the much more sane, much more rational thing I was going to post here? I can't remember now.
My friend just told me this joke, which is supposed to be a true story;
"A young woman was pulled over for speeding. As the motorcycle officer walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, she said, “I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the Highway Patrolmen’s Ball.” he replied, “Highway Patrolmen don’t have balls” There was a moment of silence while she smiled, and he realised what he’d just said. he then closed his book, got back on his motorcycle and left. She was laughing too hard to start her car for several minutes."
I thought it was great.
That's it! I was going to mention I listen to way too much U2 and am going to make an effort to listen to more other music. Downloaded Every New Day by Five Iron Frenzy last night, and it's great. I think you may have a potential fan convert on your hands here. And I'm just working out what CDs I want for Christmas. Odds are I won't get them all, but here's what I have so far, with the ones I'm almost certain to get in bold;
Meteora by Linkin Park
Fallen by Evanescence
Parachutes and A Rush Of Blood To The Head by Coldplay
Clarity by Jimmy Eat World
Original Soundtracks 1 by The Passengers (U2 + Brian Eno)
Dark Side Of The Moon and The Wall by Pink Floyd
REM's Best Of (anyone got a title for it? Is it simply just The Best Of REM?)
And upon Pat's recommendation, The Black Album and Load by Metallica
pH34r. A storm's rolling in. I feel like I should put my light on, and it's only 3pm. I've actually felt this way since midday.
