Life, insomnia, and all that....

2 hours sleep. Woke up wide awake.

Father made it through his angioplasty well.

Hubby, on the other hand, had some sort of blood pressure spike yesterday while at work out in Utah. He forgot to take a key medication and is coming home today if he can.

Bought some voice recognition software yesterday. I'm looking forward to playing with that on the new computer. Not going to waste my time putting it on this walking wounded system I use.

New computer will have 2 gig ram. I am looking forward to that.

I've been buying a lot of music lately...a weird mix of stuff. Cream. The Police. Nickelback. Genesis. Red. Gonna drive my hubby crazy. He likes 60s mostly. And blue grass. For a long time I was content with Celtic music and 80s technopop, and some 70s stuff (I've been out of my age demographic for music a long time - I was in my tweens in the late 60s.)

Music I'm craving is edgy, and my beloved 80s stuff (I have quite a collection of compilation 80s cds) isn't cutting it for the most part.

Funny how those things work. Sometimes I wonder what the young clerks think when this obvious grandma aged woman's buying some of this stuff....

This is going to go down as a weird summer...

I meant to leave you a comment yesterday, and go so busy I forgot (I should be working now). Anyway, I'm glad he came through it well. We work with heart patients, and I don't know how any of them have been through it. It seems like it's so common nowadays, and you rarely hear of anything going wrong. I just glad he did well, and it will hopefully help him feel better.

I hope your husband is okay, and that he gets to come home.

I expected Dad would do ok...it's just that he's just so far away, that I couldn't do the traditional family hospital watch thing. This is the price of running off with a man who lives 2000 miles from where my family lives...but I wouldn't trade him for the world.

Haven't heard back from hubby yet, but cold-turkeying off a serotonin-uptake inhibitor is always an interesting experience.

I can't take the things...1/2 of the starter dose makes me too drunk to function. I've never been able to get past the first week.

At least we have an interesting Manga chapter for the week. There are compensations, and I am always grateful for them.

I'm such a music weirdo. My favorite band of ALL time is the Rolling Stones. (Mick turns 64 on the 26th, if you're curious). I have almost all of their studio albums (official live releases included) in one format or another, a handful of bootlegs, some videos (I need the new 4 disc DVD set if I'd stop buying anime..), and more books than I can shake a stick at. My second fave band is Nine Inch Nails. I'm twisted, I know. Stones, NIN, yeaaaaaah that makes soooooo much sense. And Depeche Mode is my third favorite. (I was born in 1982, but I dare just about anyone to play Name that 1980s tune with me. I watched MTV non stop as a child, and can see the videos in my head when I hear the music still. Safety Dance RULES! Let's not forget Sledgehammer! Yes, I was a warped child.) I dunno. I don't believe music should have an age limit. The good stuff will appeal to all ages and be remembered. So go for it!

Hard for me to name a favorite band...maybe Led Zeppelin, but I like so many different types of music that saying that would be a misnomer.

My most favorite piece of music ever done, though, I know. And that's the Summer storm piece of Vivaldi's 4 seasons. I can get drunk listening to it.

A fun video of it is at Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvtbteGTOGs

I did buy my first Nine Inch Nails cd a few days ago because of something you said. I liked it...but I like edgy music. But I can tell it's music to listen to when hubby's not around. It'd drive him crazy.

I really like Nickelback which is one of the newer bands I've discovered.

Oh, I love the golden age of MTV, between say 81-85. That's one reason I have so many 80s compilation albums.

Peter Gabriel always came up with wonderful videos. Sledgehammer was probably is best.

The one album I have bought most of over the years is the Stairway to Heaven album by Led Zeppelin. Next is various versions of the Vivaldi's 4 seasons.

I also like technopop and trancer music. And the Stones.

    You might try Nobunaga Concerto where a modern time traveler exchanges places with Nobunaga. Follows Nobuanaga historically
