Rolling in the Deep
Been listening to the Adele song of the same name because my sekrit BF did a cover of it recently and I was sadly ignorant of it. I’m so out of the loop when it comes to new music although I admit that I do know who Adele is and loved her song “Chasing Pavements”. This one rocks, though. She’s got a voice like no other. Love it. Thank goodness Mr. Cook is dragging my sad ass into the present (music-wise).
Speaking of my beloved, I shall be seeing him in concert at the end of this month (woo hooo!) when he does a benefit a couple days before the Race for Hope. Still not dragging my ass for hope or anything else but am planning on attending the show. Cousin O’Love will be joining me and she’s always up for a fun time.
Failing up a mountain
I totally bolluxed myself up by aiming for $3000 this month, kids. That was a tad too far out of my vibration. I changed it to $2000 and am happy with that. I’m feeling like the end of August might be the appropriate time to make the switch (so sayeth my own personal astrologer and laugh if you want but she totally called Duty’s heart attack last year months before it happened.) I think I will go with that. It gives me some time and space to get my office set up and keep the flow moving with new classes and whatnot. Moving into a new venture with the energy of “I’ll show them not to get in my way” does not a peaceful transition make. Just sayin’.
Who’s watching Idol? I am but only because sekrit BF is singing the “Get off the stage now” tune and will be performing on the show April 21st. Otherwise, I couldn’t care less. It makes for good snark, though, and a nice diversion from how things seem to be going to hell otherwise.
There’s no need for me to have an iPad but I’d love to be able to play my dorky games on a larger screen than my iPod. I have to put on those old lady glasses so I can see close up to play. I suck at Hearts, btw. There really is a strategy involved but I’ll be damned if I know it.
It didn’t take long for me to lose interest in my Kindle. I think I like old fashioned books. Plus, you can buy books for Kindle and read them on your PC so that works better for me. Am I a Luddite?
Sings out loud: “I’ve got the power” – because yes, yes I do. I can walk out tomorrow and be just fine. So I am doing what I can at work but am not killing myself over it. Other people in the office come and go at will and I have been bound by my dumb loyalty to the job. I say FEH to that! I actually took time for lunch and sat outside last week. It was nice. I’m going to make that a habit.
Also too: broker dude is behaving himself pretty well and there are a couple candidates coming in for interviews. Hope reigns supreme, yo! I will swim my way back to a peaceful day where I fax a bit, surf a lot and answer phone calls from Neanderthals. When the day comes that I no longer do that, you will find me dancing my ass out in the street. Really, if truth be told, no one should be paying me to answer phones. My tone seeps through no matter what. Someone called the other day and when I answered it they said this “(broker in our office) called me.” I replied “Okay.” Who calls a company and says that?? Is it possible to say “May I speak with Joe Smith? They just called me.” Fine. I’ll put you through. Learn some damn manners. Really. Or suffer the wrath of my piss-anty tone. (How many days until August 19th? Oh, I just checked: 124. Okay then.)
Takes deep breath and moves on.
