Still alive. Tired as hell since my insomnia is back and is taking revenge for all the rain checks I've given it. It sucks pretty massively.
However, sleepless nights mean hours thralling through YouTube in the quest for soul nourishment.
Like, for example, Corinne Bailey Rae doing a cover of Led Zeppelin
and The Raconteurs
. My soul, you guys, it is hers. This item totally falls into the "Things I Am Grateful For"
folder of my life.
Other things that belong in that folder:
* Fic. I've been up at all hours of the night reading fic which is always a plus (if you're going to be awake, anyway). And so, a rec: What Grew Inside Who
, by imigination
. It's Alice through the looking glass all Camelot style, which is what it reminds me of, maybe because I've never gotten around to Lost in Austen
?. Be that as it may, it's excellent and I've read it twice already (because of the wide-open state of my eyes, you see).
*Um, I've sworn off coffee for the time being, it never really had an exciting effect on me, but just in case. Besides, awake and jittery is no way
to go through life. No coffee means a whole lot of tea though, which is always, always
a Good Thing. Especially this Argentinian blend variety
I just discovered, if you can get your hands on some, do
*Got my hair cut, all shoulder-length and no-need-to-comb-it. It is wonderful. Because I don't need to comb it.
L: so basically, your comb has become redundant in your life.
Me: This is like finding the Holy Grail!
*My kids had a cooking project, right? and they decided to make muffins (I was secretly hoping for them to pop Bradley James out of the oven, or something. I believe in magic, ok?). Which they then thought to bring over to the rest of the staff so that we could all enjoy the fruits of their labor. Not a single one was properly done, but that was okay because it meant we got to stuff our faces with icing
. Much fun was had by all.
So, flist. How goes it?
