Rules: List seven you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your winter. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

I TAG NO ONE.

But I plum forgot to!

Last week was my roomie's b-day, and as I realized I had TOTALLY FORGOTTEN to get her a card, but remembered how much she loved penguins and how her original plans were ruined by the snow storm, I made her this!

handmade card thrown together at the last minute during my lunch break while at work and after commandeering the graphic designer supplies that hadn't been touched in a year. )

I swear I got actual work done last week while at work. I SWEAR IT.

Music!

I've been filled recently with the burning desire to take up a musical instrument again. I was never really good, but it was enjoyable after I LONG SINCE gave up on learning to play an instrument so I could avoid being forced into recitals/NYSSMA and tortured over them (CURSE YOU NYSSMA! *SHAKES FIST!*). But as my piano is at my parents, and it is UNLIKELY I'll ever have an apartment in the near/distant future where I could HAVE my piano on hand, I think I want to take up something cheaper/more transportable

I have the strongest desire to take up...the ukulele.

(Or the violin, but I blame the murder mystery party for that.)

((Or even the accordion, but that would only make those who know me who can PLAY the accordian laugh and laugh and laugh and--))

If I'm really honest with myself, picking up a new instrument to learn would only make my life a Jeeves and Wooster tale; except that I'm a Bertie without a Jeeves, so I'm already forced to control my sudden bouts of bad-judgement, lest disaster strikes.

(Still would like to take up the ukulele though.)
