I needed music today. I don’t listen to music at work a lot, because I normally am not bothered by the sounds around the office. I actually use them to know what’s going on, ya know?? When I worked where I worked before my current job, music was my constant refuge! There was always whispering going on, and ½ the time I felt like it was about me – only ¼ of the time was that true, probably, but I did have reasons for thinking so!! To escape from the stress this caused me, I had a whole CD collection & headphones to plug in to my computer. Alanis if I was mad, Yanni to calm me down, Phil or Def Leppard or Metallica to chill with. I always feel like I type faster when listening to music. Whether that is truth or merely perception, I do not know! I just know that when I can focus on the music in the background, it helps me concentrate on what I’m working on! *laugh*
Today there was just a lot of CHATTER going on, and I didn’t really feel well, either, so it was extra annoying! I just wanted everyone to SHUT UP!
I broke out the Glee soundtracks, then Phil, then the boss opened his door & he was listening to muzak while on hold for a meeting, and it made me want to listen to my main musical squeeze (tied for 1st place w/ Phil of course!), Yanni! : ) I didn’t think I had any Yanni here, tho, and was sad …. Then I remembered I have his Ethnicity CD in my drawer. WOOT! Listening to that CD, I started to feel better… : )
*** auto caps OFF ***
and then, i got to meet mom & leyton at chick fil a, and all was once again right with the world! : )
leyton went back & forth about the cow. he loved the cow & wanted him to come visit again. then he was scared of the cow & didn't want him anywhere near us. then he was back to loving the cow (because the cow kept high-fiving him! LOL). i was happy when the cow made leyton happy, because I love the cow & wanted him to be around us!! LOL
there were two guys & their daughter sitting near us. she was about 2, i think. her dress was beautiful! and the patterns looked like they might've come from Hawthorne Threads, which i just LOVE. i wish i sewed, because i would love to make things w/ the fabrics they find. they're unique and fun. : ) anyway, as we were leaving, i told her dad (one of her dads? honestly, idk if these two were together or just friends, i just got an impression that they were both gay, but even then that doesn't mean they were together, so at any rate, i apologize for any generalizations should one or both of them ever come across this blog & they weren't together. whew!) that i loved her dress & he said her grandma made it (and many others) for her. so, it very well could have been material from HT! : )
oh, there was also a balloon guy there, as evidenced by the blue sword leyton requested. sadly, the balloon sword did not survive the trip home. : (
once we all got to mom's, leyton set up some train tracks & i played papparazzi! my favorite activity... LOL
we also played firefighter, which i don't have pictures of because i didn't want to hit leyton in the head w/ the camera as i was rescuing him! heh. then it was bath time & i had to come home & now i'm here wondering if i have time to watch something on hulu or if i should just wait til tomorrow night? i am actually enjoying the silence right now - tho silence is a relative turn. the A/C is going and the dishwasher is washing and every once in awhile the smoke alarm in the guest room beeps letting me know that i have STILL not replaced its battery. d'oh!
and now i must go and publish the give away on my menu. please stop over & follow the link to CSN's site, then leave a comment there to be entered in the drawing! $45 gift certificate is on the line, ppl! you know you wanna look! : )
TGIF tomorrow and TTFN!
i also received two postcrossings today, and a letter from one of my visiting teachers. woot!! happy mail!
