Well, what else are LJs for?
I've had a horrible cold for a week, urgent and stressful stuff-to-fix-for-touchy-customer things at work - and have just discovered that we really need to make a change which is going to be really quite tricky to code and a real nightmare to deploy - and what I really want to do is go home, make myself a cup of cold-repelling tea* and knit.
*1 lemon and ginger teabag, hot water, as much real lemon and root ginger as you have the energy to cut up, a large dollop of honey and a larger one of cheapish whisky.
What I'm actually going to do is post this music meme that's been going around, then go back to huddling in my corner and working out exactly how much effort it's going to be to sort this work thing out.
Lyrics from the first ten songs that came up when I shuffled the music currently on my phone (excluding bits of Latin Mass, instrumental music and bird calls, which together seem to form a far larger proportion than I was expecting):
1. You think we look pretty good together
You think my shoes are made of leatherSubstitute, The Who
2. Fancy, if you believe in what I believe in,
Then we'll be the same, always.
3. Ground Control to Major Tom,
Ground Control to Major Tom,
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on.Space Oddity, David Bowie
4. The tax-man's taken all my dough
And left me in my stately homeSunny Afternoon, The Kinks
5. Oh, Cindy gal, oh Cindy gal,
Oh, Cindy gal, where'd you stay last night?
6. I got a kind-hearted woman,
Do anything in this world for me
7. Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota Rocky Raccoon, The Beatles
8. (How long now)
I love you.
Steel painted eyes.
Feels like snow.
9. I recall how we lived
On the corner of a bed
10. Your heart is not open so I must go;
The spell has been broken, I loved you so
From everyone else's memes I have learnt that I have almost no ability to remember lyrics without their music. Also that some people's music collections seem to be much less scattershot than mine!
