1/8/11: New year, new obsession, new banner. :P

Locked by friendly; c'mon in brother

About the only things that me and the guys in back at work agree on are 1). The Zombie Apocalypse is a distinct possibility, and 2). John Prine is awesome. Earlier this year I picked up the Prine tribute album, Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows because Josh Ritter covered "Mexican Home" but it was The Avett Brothers' cover of "Spanish Pipedream" that really did it for me. I love that song in general and their down-home sound fits it perfectly. Makes me feel like it's springtime even though it's cold and dreary outside.

The thing about John Prine's music is that I think it could be used as a blueprint for Life, particularly this song.

Also, I wanted to wish [personal profile] ames1010 a very happy birthday! I hope Chicago was all you wanted it to be. :)

It's the birthday of one of my best friends from high school, so I gave him a call. We talked for about fifteen minutes and he seemed really pleased to hear from me. So someone explain why now I feel like crying again. Sigh. This continual fluctuation between numbness and self-pitying sorrow is starting to wear.

On the days when I feel overwhelming numbness, I often try to use music to jolt myself out of it. Often I have to use music I can't listen to on "normal" days because it usually makes me feel too much; I require that sort of overboard response just to get back to something resembling a normal emotive footing.

I also have music that I associate with days of the week. For example, I chose Jolie Holland for todays OSaD pick because she feels "Sunday" to me. I only own one album, but I'd like to pick up the one that this particular song resides on because this song hits me in my heart whenever I hear it. It's the melody and the imagery; I think this one is more accessible than some of her others but it's still unique and affecting.

I also think my above-mentioned friend would enjoy her. :)

Last week I received yet another wedding invitation addressed to "Blah Blah and Guest." *sigh* Obviously there's still some schooling that needs to be done.

So for those of you getting married, now or in the future, lemme drop a little knowledge on you care of [profile] tasty_bread who is my etiquette guru.

[profile] tasty_bread: Mastering envelope etiquette is, I'll admit, one of the biggest challenges of wedding planning, so I'm inclined to forgive in some cases, but "& Guest" is for people who are currently dating someone for under a year. Single people do not get "& Guest", they get carefully placed at tables with mutual friends of theirs, cool people who share their interests, and/or other singles to ease any possible social anxiety and possibly get them laid.

We all clear now? I won't be receiving any more of these awkward & shaming invitations? Great. Thanks.

This is the holiday card request post. I know a lot of people don't do cards anymore for environmental reasons, but I think getting mail is one of the best things about this time of the year, so I remain committed. :) You know the drill. If you want holiday greetings you are welcome to PM me, or drop a comment with your mailing address (comments are, of course, screened). No reciprocity required; I like to use these cards as a way to play "catch-up" with those of you I don't talk to often. :)

eta: additionally, if you'd rather not have your address anywhere near LJ but would still like a holiday card, I can be reached at my gmail account: debsbasement [at] gmail [dot] com.

A very happy birthday to my heterolifemate, [ profile] lunar8i8star!! I hope you have a fabulous day, even if you do happen to be working. :) I sent you something, but I don't know when it'll arrive, so for now you just get giant electronic birthday *HUGS*!

A very happy birthday to [ profile] dissonant_dream! I hope your day is full of donuts and swans, sporks and GQMFs, sumo-shunning and SPARKLY BALLOONS!!11!! You are my brain-twin and I wish you all the best (and the prettiest!) for the coming year. I really tried to finish a fic for your big day, but I'm stuck at 2,135 words right now and it's starting to slog into the realm of suckiness, so that will be a few days late. I ♥ you.

Also, I don't know if the email I tried to send you with this song ever got through, but it remains appropriate. :)

It's still the thirteenth here, but when I wake up it will be the fourteenth, so I want to wish a happy birthday to one of my favorite people, [ profile] chlorate, because she is made of awesome. I hope you have a great day, E, full of baseball-y goodness, movie popcorn, and Ryan Reynolds. Just keep remembering that the BNFs at your workplace think you're the shit, and now you have all the tools you need to keep all the clueless men in your life at bay. ;) *birthday hugs*

Saw Get Smart & discussed upcoming travel plans tonight with [ profile] chlorate. This = good times. My love for The Rock grows exponentially every day. :)

In other news, music. These are the two songs that have taken over my life the last few days:

Sigur Rós: Festival

Émilie Simon: My Old Friend

Only a week until I'm officially closer to thirty than twenty. Craaaazy.
