Maybe it is just a typical for me cluster migraine... Maybe it is because I did not (could not) sleep last night. Maybe it was something I ate. Maybe it was the wine I drank yesterday... WHATEVER caused this, I hope it doesn't stay. I am stuck, at work, with my shoulders tensed up in a knot - due to the knot of pain in my frontal lobe on the right side. If this headache persists, and if it follows the natural course of headaches (according to my personal history of having them), it will later move to the parietal lobe, and then it will go away... temporarily.
n.(Medicine / Pathology) a technical name for headache

The Music Meme is complete. I am so relieved. I never really thought that picking a song for each of the "daily topics" would be so challenging. Despite the fact I had such a hard time with the Meme--- this post is partially about a song I heard while I was watching TV tonight (The Big C on Showtime) and this song played... so I went looking for it. Voila-- found it in seconds, literally, without even knowing the title or artist name.

Tomorrow, I have a lunch date. Yes. Really. A Lunch Date I know... it has been a while. I will let you know if it goes well, and if there will be more dates to follow this one.

n.the final resolution to an intricate plot.

I am not sure that with my last date -- a few months ago I think it was, that I was ready. I am not sure that I am ready now... but I am going to try.

There is an italian restaurant, that has been getting good reviews -- it isn't a cheap place, but it isn't extremely expensive... I hope the food is good. I hope the SERVICE is good. I've read mixed reviews on the websites that let people write their own comments, so I guess we'll see.

Music Meme, Day 29: One song that gives you the creeps.

Doesn't Exist. someone said it all here.

I don't think there are any songs that "give me the creeps". Not even in the death-thrash-metal that claims to be satanic. BUT there are some groups that are so "different" that I consider them weird and I don't listen to them.

Bands like Slipknot. I really just think most of them do it for attention. Like Marilyn Manson - and before him Alice Cooper -- and Ozzy in his younger days -- it's all in their OFF view of showmanship.

Music Meme, Day 30: A song you’d like played at your funeral.

Ken Bonfield - Requiem [go hear it]

I feel that a song without words would be the best way to celebrate the life of someone as talkative as myself. Lyrics in a situation where I would be dead would interrupt the thoughts of whoever had come to say goodbye to me. This would allow them to remember me as they want to - with whatever memories they have; and since it has no lyrics, they would not be trying to read meaning into the chosen piece.

That does it. I did it. I finished the postings of the 30 songs -- although it took me more than 30 days.

About Me

My Photo
If you don't "get it" that's ok. My moods vary from light hearted and amused to darker and often stormy. I do not feel that medication is necessary for the majority of people for every day mood changes, but for some reason everyone I know seems to be on either Zoloft or Prozac. That sums up all that is wrong in the world.
