DT: come reap

three days, filled with tears and sorrow: yesterday, today, and tomorrow

Posted on 2006.20.08 at 13:52
where am I: here, before work
How I feel about it all: crappyI don't wanna work, ma!
Soundtrack: k.d. lang and the Reclines - Three Days
Tags: , , ,
Okay, if I didn't know I was the hugest music geek on the planet I do now, as evidenced by this:

I'm almost halfway through Getting Married in Buffalo Jump, and my biggest fangirly outburst is ZOMG, k.d. lang AND THE RECLINES !!!!. Maybe I'm coming down with something.

But really, this is a much better film than I expected (so far, anyway). Sweet, character-driven love story, more than just the Harlequin Special Edition I expected. Oh, Canada, how do you do television so much better?

And, um. The toothpick's a nice touch; they should've given it more screentime. Or perhaps a one-on-one contest with RayK's toothpick. Preferably in close proximity to each other. Toothpick smackdown, I can see it now.

Anyway, my conclusion so far: Paul Gross does 47 better than 32. Not that he's any slouch at 32. Just needs a few more laugh lines, is all. But ZOMGKDLANGANDTHERECLINES.

Clearly, I need therapy.



In other news, yay, I have tomorrow off! I have the following plans:

1. Get my car back, because yay (sort of) money.

2. Work on my stories, because hello, deadline. Oh, and I need a beta. *adds to list*

3. Go shopping, because we are out of food, like really.

4. Make a post at TR.

5. Buy, and consume, Mike's Hard Lime.

6. Finish up reservation stuff for Nawlins.

7. Clean my room.

8. Get my bookshelf and set up work/study/sewing space.


Okay, so all that won't be done tomorrow, but I can pretty much count on 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6, with a strong emphasis on 5.
I also have Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off, so I should get most of it done soon, anyway. I didn't even list pay bills, do housework, or a thousand other RL things that need doing.

Also, I'm surprised that there haven't been more guesses to my iPod Lyric Meme. Tomorrow I'm going to give additional lyrics to the unguessed songs, see if that makes it a little easier. Because y'all care, I know. But really, these are good songs and should be shared with the world, yessir.

Also #2, does anyone have an mp3 of k.d. lang and the Reclines' "Big Boned Gal"? I'd be v. appreciative, say thankya. And I'm still wondering where the next eps of Slings & Arrows have gotten to. I take emails. :)

Okay, fifteen minutes before I have to leave for work. Am walking, so I have to leave early. Which means I won't finish this movie before work. Wah. But ZOMGkdLANGANDTHERECLINES. *g*

I fell in love with Paul Gross in that movie. I saw it on TV prolly the first time it was on, and was like WHO. IS. THAT. Must...have...

I am ok with his 32 yo self. ;D

Re: Big Boned Gal - I know I had that cd - or maybe it was a cassette - back in the day, but unless it turns up in a junk drawer somewhere, I can't help you. Good luck with your search!

I had no luck with the other ipod meme lyrics. No idea whatsoever - if you do add some more hints, I'll give it another try.

Oh, yes, Paul's lovely here. Still, if I was given the choice between Alex and Geoffrey Tennant, I'd pick Geoffrey in a heartbeat. Partly because of the character, I'm sure, because GT is one of my favourite people who were ever not actually born.

I have the CD somewhere, as well. *sigh* I can never find anything.

Hello. Well 25 is Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin. I will see if I can get any others but they are tough (p.s. I knew Raised on Robbery but that was already guessed).

Ooooops. This is actually one of my all time favourite songs - Over the Hills and Far Away. I absolutely love the guitar in it.

and thank you for the wonderful icon! I was Charlie Brown in our Grade 6 production of A Charlie Brown Christmas and I love this scene with Lucy and Schroeder (sp?). I especially love the music.

Me again. I knew you would have an Elton. 18 is Ballad of a Well-Known Gun from Tumbleweed Connection, a fine album indeed.

I was wondering why you didn't guess this one before. I deliberately picked something from Tumbleweed Connection, just for you. ;)

Thanks. I wanted to keep you in suspense for a bit!

So it's your fault my nails are bitten down to nothing. Hmmph.

And to think I was blaming these guys.

Sox and Yankees are the Sunday night game on tv tonight. You could use a win by the way.

Thanks for reminding me.

I have Big Boned Gal, because you sent it to me once upon a time. I'll try to send it to you later. Or tomorrow. Or something. zomgexhausted.

I'll be around tomorrow. Whee!

I used to have the mp3, see, but then I got a new computer because my old one was deader 'n dirt.

Tomorrow...

Hmm. I'll be around in the morning, and part of the afternoon - G has ballet from 3:30 to 4:30, so figure I won't be around from 3 until 5:30 or 6, by the time dinner gets tacked on there. But! Then my co for Brownies is coming over to pow-wow, and she's coming around six... plus I figure she won't leave until eight. And I might then have to run out to the Square to pick up t-shirts. Um. Right.

So, um, sometime after 8:30, I will be around tomorrow. :/

I've been cleaning today. Cleaning in my office, to be exact (which basically is going to become 'the' office, as opposed to 'my' office, because of taking over Sam's office for a meeting room... anyway). So as I was clearing off the chest of drawers, I found a small sheet of paper with writing on it. A piece of paper I think you will be very interested in - it's got the information about adoptions that you got at the HMN meeting back in March. :)

So 14 I think is Raised on Robbery by Joni Mitchell. I know it has already been guessed but I didn't look at the answer.

You get credit anyway. It's who gets it right, not who's first.
