Longest Week Evah!

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:

  1. Strong Enough – Sheryl Crow – Tuesday Night Music Club. I’m pretty sure this is my favorite song by her. I like the whole package.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Comment if you want. You know, no pressure.
