|||||Don't Want To Miss A Thing||]|
I've been holed up the past few days, working on my bitchy iTunes library, napping, and reading Miss Misery. Actually, I'm still working on my bitchy iTune library, but I am taking a break. Relocating files can get tedious and monotonous. I am probably at least a week behind on lj_secret. We are having a veritable flood of new people joining borderline; I'm not sure what's up with that. I mean, 10 membership requests yesterday alone!
I'm mopey and crampy and sentimental right now. Already took a Tylenol; considering a hot water bottle. Have a scented candle lit to maybe help me destress a bit. Just listened to the Armageddon soundtrack and have been listening to a bunch of NIN lately, so that brings me back. I am so obsessed with music. Seriously. My hunger shall never be sated. The list perpetually grows. The same is with books. It's not so bad with movies, it seems.
Things to do today: Finish/wrap/hide Melaine's b-day gift before she gets here. Change the bedsheets on both mine and Liz's beds. Put away clean laundry. Wash dirty laundry. Oh yes, Leah is supposed to phone tonight, as well.
I'm feeling totally anemic and it's only day 1. :(
Do you have the newest version of iTunes? If so, you can just use the "compile library" command, and it will move everything for you. Takes about an hour or so.
It was being a bitch and putting files on two separate harddrives. I've got it all moved now. The fun part is going to be importing my hundreds of cds.
Also, I am picky and wanted album art and proper ID3 tags.
I haven't read much at all in the past few years. You seem to have an interesting taste in books. Could you recommend some? Some of the quotes you post are thought provoking and seem interesting in general.
Also, I haven't been on lj_secret
since they first asked for new mods and they had that long ass break without secrets. I don't even check it anymore. They keep trying to change things, and in my opinion, it sucks worse than it ever did. They should just leave shit alone.
Well, I tend to write down good quotes that I want to remember. I don't know what to recommend. Do you have a particular taste in genre? I read pretty much everything. I have biographies, self-help books, sci-fi, fantasy, thriller/horror, text books, comic books, jfic (teen level reading)...
The book that quote is from is called Miss Misery by Andy Greenwald. It is a fic based on LJ. My friend blurrymirrors
gave it to me.
...Have you read my poetry book? ;)
Oh shit! I started reading it when I first got it, but then I hid it somewhere so my mother wouldn't find it. I totally forgot about it. Doh! I'll have to look for it. I have a tendency to hide things too well.
Miss Misery sounds interesting. I like a bunch of stuff. I like books on psychology. I like poetry books. I like horrors and thrillers. I like a bunch of stuff, really. I'm not crazy about sci-fi or comic books though; I find them boring.
For thrillers/horror, I recommend anything by Richard Bachman. It's a pseudonym that Stephen King used to see if his books would sell as well under a different name. I enjoy those stories muchly.
For psych, are you only interested in a particular area or all of it in general? A Child Called It by David Pelzer is an excellent biography about severe abuse. I Don't Want To Be Inside Me Anymore is composed of writings by a German autistic boy. If you want to feel sane, pick up a copy of Girl, Interrupted.
I have so many books on my reading list that I haven't gotten to yet, so I don't know if they are any good.
I am currently reading The Prestige by Christopher Priest. It is a novel about 2 rival illusionists.
