I know you don't, but thought I'd point out your fall just the same. Just cuz the whole concept amuses me. Had actually forgotten all about it... then I remembered, then I was curious. Way more names on the list than the first time I looked, lol.War, believe me when I tell you I don't give a fuck. I'm shocked I was even in the running in the first place, considering I haven't even been here half the year and it's called Member of the Year. :laughing: Really? I'm shocked! I know how much you love popularity contests. :kitteh:
Good for you! I didn't really accomplish anything myself. Other than what absolutely needed to get accomplished. The rest of it was just lying about gaming, really. Or watcing shit on Netflix. Or football. I did watch a little football. That was about it, though.I did absolutely no work this weekend. Didn't even open a book. And I must say, I'm so glad I didn't. The past week was more stressful than I would have liked. I badly needed to unwind.
Slept well when I finally took myself to bed. Which was around 11p, I think. Finally ran outta steam. I was so tired, my eyeballs ached, but I could not sleep. Feeling a bit shitty didn't make the situation any bit better... and I had a bit of the sneezies too.
I feel even less gross now than I did yesterday afternoon. No headache, which is good. Sore throat... still hanging about, but far less horrid than it was. It's now down to annoying, but manageable. No coughing, no sneezing, no congesting, no dripping. I think... I'm doing pretty welll, actually.
I think sleeping the rest of today away will definitely help matters. Surely won't hurt, anyway.
I think I'm going to get my niece a stethoscope for Christmas. Have it engraved and what not. Since she's going into nursing after high school and stuff. Surely a nursing student will need a stethoscope... right? I asked what type of nursing she's planning on going into cuz... my understanding was she wanted to do nursing in NICU... so infant stuff. Kinda need to know that stuff so I can get the right kind... though I suppose just getting a standard stethoscope would probably due for now, eh?
We'll see what kinda answers I get, I guess. May end up doing the old standard of giving her & her brother money. *shrugs*
I love Christmas music. On my truck radio, I have a station tuned in that plays nothing but Christmas music from Thanksgiving till Christmas Day. (It's the only time I listen to Christmas music, obviously, and also the only time I use the stereo in my truck. After 1000 watts in the Mustang all summer long, the tinny sound from a regular stereo makes me sad.)
People find this weird. The Christmas music thing. I'm not sure why. Because... I'm an INTJ? Because I'm an Atheist? Because I'm an INTJ Atheist? And as such, it seems totally out of character? I'm going to go with that cuz I don't know what else it could be, to be perfectly honest.
But, yes. I love Christmas music. Not all of it. I prefer the standards, I'd guess you'd call them. I do not prefer the newer stuff, by and large, and don't prefer that stupid story telling, tear jerking nonsense.
I prefer people who can actually sing the standards and not have the whole thing sound like a hot mess. Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Burl Ives, etc... and more recent folks like Mariah Carey, Josh Groban and that lot.
Of course, I also like the ones about Frosty and Rudolph and such...
I wish I had a voice like this. (Actually, I'd be happy if I were half as good, lol) Boy's got serious pipes, yo.
