I think everyone has Spring Fever at my job. All week most of us agreed that time seemed to crawl and we had very weird senses of humor. I was mostly happy not to get in trouble for saying something inappropriate. I mean, of course, I said plenty that was inappropriate but I didn’t get in any trouble for it. I did have several memorable conversations over this past week. I can’t share some of them, Erin’s trying to force the dream she shared with me out of her head and putting it down here won’t help either of us. I will share that one of my co-workers asked me who “the man” (yes, he used air quotes) is in my relationship with TJ. I reminded him that by definition, there were no men in lesbian relationships. He didn’t mean it maliciously and I got an opportunity to educate him that not all lesbian or gay relationships have partners that conform to traditional heterosexual roles.
Ok, here’s my shuffle from this morning:
- Strong Enough – Sheryl Crow – Tuesday Night Music Club. I’m pretty sure this is my favorite song by her. I like the whole package.
- Carnival – Natalie Merchant – Tigerlily. I don’t hate this song but I do fast forward through it just about everytime it comes on. I love her voice and have claimed her as my second wife. This song just disappoints me and I’m really not sure why. Maybe because it was sort of popular and I tend to rebel agains pop music, in general. Who can say?
- Mary – Sarah McLachlan – Fumbling Toward Ecstacy. Good song. This one usually ends up on my playlists that I listen to when I’m reading angst filled fiction. TJ likes to call those “slit your wrists” lists.
- Going Under – Evanescence – Fallen. A fine song. I do like to see women make it as singers in this hard rocking genre. She does have a great voice.
- Light Through the Veins – Jon Hopkins – Insides. This was a free download this week. Holy crap, it’s 9 minutes long. And I’m telling you now, if it doesn’t move on soon, I’m not going to make it to the end. Let’s see, it’s been nearly 2 minutes and it’s just the same melody over and over. Three and 1/2 minutes and more of the same. Well, more instruments have been added. Four minutes and it’s official, I’m done. This one will be deleted.
