No, we didn’t have dancing fairies and twirling dwarves. Insomnia strikes again as it just sometimes does in my life. I knew I was in trouble when midnight rolled around and I was still very wide awake. It must have been that king sized candy bar and giant soda I consumed earlier. I got out of the bed and put on some clothes and resigned myself to one of life’s dire, but unavoidable fates. Fortunately, I didn’t have to volunteer until Monday or I would been in pitiful, pitiful shape right now. Sometimes, I just do this as if my biological clock is resetting. I just chalk it up as a hiccup in my circadian rhythms. My most sincere heart goes out to you all that struggle with insomnia.
Last night was music exploration night at Andrew’s Casa and it kept me preoccupied for the rest of the night. I am in dire need of some fresh and/or interesting music. I have a little over $40 in iTunes bucks from Christmas (about 40 songs) that I needed to spend and I put them good use.
One band that was really interesting was Portishead. Strange band that was, but I loved them. It had one of those spaghetti western feels to the album. Now, I am exploring Adele’s music and it escapes me why she is so lauded. I also looked everywhere for James Taylor’s album September Grass, but couldn’t find a legitimate MP3 copy anywhere. If I was unscrupulous then I could have been a pirate and downloaded it. I certainly don’t need any law suits, though, as would befit my luck. I think I am just going to buy the compact disc at Amazon. Patience young grasshopper. It will be here in two days which seems like forever. It is hard when you live in a nation bolstered and driven by instant gratification. I’ve fallen victim to that state of mind sometimes as well.
