Alright, so here's a rarity from me: a post. I think it's been more than a month since the last. So here's the rundown.
Moving: 9 more days till we move. Can't wait. The rain we have had up here, along with the falling trees, is exponentially increasing the number of ants we have in the house - much more than last year. We have gone on rampages trying to get them all - moving everything, running the sweeper, etc. And still they keep coming. A good chunk of stuff is packed already, so that's going along well. Still got to get rid of some old computer stuff and pack the rest..and of course, we need boxes. Need to call Kinko's tomorrow and see about that.
Work: Oh dear god, did we just get busy. Everyone suddenly wants new computers, or computers fixed, and we have two major projects, and maybe a third one on the way. It's good that it got busy, I'm not complaining about that part. It's just that it's all at once. :) And the power issues involved with trying to run 3 servers, 4 work computers, and up to 4 other computers at once - talk about a precarious balance.
Ok, so it's yet another short post. I never seem to have the really long stories that others do, or the interesting lives either. And I don't exactly have funny stories to tell, as I don't do much outside of work by the time I get home. I could tell stories about work, but I would have to explain all about my clients (that's where our funny stories come from).
Aha. Thought of another topic (though I really need to get to bed..but I need to post when I actually have content!). Music. Normally, my musical tastes run all over the place...60's, 70's, 80's, some 90's, and less of the 2000's, Motown, a little country, etc. You get the picture. Mainly what I listen to is 80's though, and I'm afraid to say that I'm getting just a bit tired of it. Amazing, to say the least...I've been listening to this stuff for years as I "rediscovered" it - or more accurately, I found out who sang what, found some songs I knew but had forgotten, and collected the CD's & mp3's. So I'm running out of music to listen to. I'm trying to find out things I want to listen to, but it's really hard with the way music has gone these days. I miss the dance music of my high school years (I don't remember enough titles or group names to collect the songs). I listen to the radio, and I usually don't like what I hear. Now I recently tried out Evanensence, which was ok, though I absolutely love My Immortal. Modest Mouse had a commercial on today for their latest album @ Target..they were playing a nice song too, but I don't know if that's what all their music is like. spratt
, I belive that you were someone who liked them, can you tell me if they would be something I like? I seem to like the slower, mopey, ballady songs, it seems. I don't know what else to try though. I need to find groups similar to what I already like - I just need new music. It does not have to be a 80's band making a comeback, though it dosen't hurt if it is. :) I don't know - I just really don't care for the current music..
So, in short, I'm taking suggestions. Please. Anyone. Anything. I will try listening to songs at least 1-2 times before passing an absolute judgement on it. (I sometimes listen to just part of a song before turning it off, and then later find that I really do like it.)
