Random Songs…

Reflecting a bit on yesterday’s Meme (where I mentioned the fact that I’ve listened to probably WAY to much music)… it’s funny how weird the mind works. The office that I work in is generally quiet (aside from the ticking of keyboard keys being pressed, the clicks of mouse-buttons, and the conversations with patients and other clients calling in for refills or to be connected to different areas of the facility.

No music.

Aside from a random cell phone ring, or if someone visits a site (but generally, with volume at a low roar so it doesn’t carry too far), no music, whatsoever.

And I bring you this notion as to how random the mind can be. Usually, the phenomenon is that the last song you hear is the one that sticks with you. Today, however, that just isn’t the case. I’ve been spinning Rush’s Snakes & Arrows almost non-stop since I got it (in the truck, and for a while, even in the house), and was actually listening to it during a lunchtime nap.

But, what led me to write this, is that I had Tenacious D’s Wonderboy – which I haven’t listened to in quite a while, and I had Limp Bizkit’s Phenomenon pop in my head as I was typing that word earlier. And other songs had flittered through, now forgotten to the aethers, preceeding them… and it’s been like that all day. It actually is quite funny to me, because it allows me to laugh at myself, as the tunes are rolling through my mind, and I’m rocking along to the beat in my head…

Weird, huh? But it’s a wonderful diversion, sometimes!

Friday…

Well, the week has been an interesting one… not for any extraordinary occurences, but just because it seems to have flown by and I seemed to have accomplished very little. But as I think about it… I didn’t have any glorious aspirations for this past week, short of trying to get back into writing… which I have done, a bit timidly…

So, I had a moment of weakness last night, and bought six (6) new cds from Best Buy. Honestly, I don’t even know if I will like the discs, or how often I’ll spin them… That was the most I had gotten in a single purchase in a loooong time… I had mostly broken myself of getting new albums – for that very reason: why spend the money to only listen to it a couple of times, then let it rot in a drawer or cabinet? I have a subscription to Rhapsody, so most of the time I’ve gotten to listen through an album there before deciding if I wanted to buy it… ease of the economy, right?

But I have actually mad a “To Do” list for today, which means I’m trying to regain some composure/stability to my daily routine… and blog posts and writing exercises are on my list… and as I return to some regularity in the routine (they say 21 days to make/break a habit, right?) I can phase them off of the list…

Talk about a complex process, right? Well, I have now been at work for almost an hour, an the day is getting ready to start getting interesting… (I came in at 7 to cover for someone that went home early yesterday – sick… It’s been quiet, but everything opens at 8, so the Friday will commence shortly…) So I shall cut this short, and may try to post more later…
