( So what have I been up to this week? )
Here's wishing a LOVELY weekend to all my flisties!

|You are Barefoot!|
You're a total free spirit, go with the flow girl
You can't be restricted by shoes for very long
And unsuprisingly, the same goes for men
Your match is out there - and he's as carefree as you are
It's 1:00 PM and I haven't been propagated yet. *SIGH*
I should be used to this by now - we ALWAYS get things late up here in Canada. Especially in Quebec. Whether it be TV shows, new music releases, new book releases, the newest breakfast cereal, the newest flavour of Coke - whatever, it always seems to be available here after everyone else. I am getting email notifications of new posts in topics I'm subscribed to, but when I click the link it tells me the post does not exist and when I go to the board directly from my bookmark, there's no message from rockfic in the Announcements forum telling me the happy news.
So I try and be patient. NOT one of my fortes, I'm afraid.
There's all kinds of little things I want to try and get done today, but I'll bet I don't get to most of them. *LOL* Seems to be my favorite modus operandi - procrastinating. But I'm not going to list them, because that almost ensures that they won't get done!
Recently I ripped some tunes from my Nylons CDs into my iTunes. Over the past year I had sort of put them aside in my rediscovery of the hard rock/metal genre. I had forgotten how much I loved this music. Acappella. Right at the moment, I'm listening to their version of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and I'm being blown away all over again. Beautiful sounding stuff, really. In the past, I've seen this quartet (well, the early line-ups) live many, many times - even met the fellows a few times. Yeah, I was a Nylons groupie. *grin* Wrote them into one of my 7 Brides fanfics too. I have their first 6 or 7 CDs (I have the first few on vinyl as well) and believe me, those CDs are well-played. My three friends and I actually put together an acappela group to perform in our annual curling club shows back in the day. I laugh that I can't sing, but with coaching and lots of practice, I can actually do a decent job of staying on key. The Nylons' version of "Up On The Roof" is one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time. And I have to say, when it plays and then segues into "For Whom the Bells Toll" or "Battery" or "Some Kind of Monster" on the iTunes, it makes for a very interesting transition. *LOL*
Okay... gonna go try and get a few things done. *snort* What a laugh, you all KNOW how far I'm gonna get with that.
