Surprise Holiday

So the x-rays were a snap. 30 minutes' walk to the lab, pics, and walk back. Time to snag a coffee on the way back in. The arm sure is hurting, though. Not good. Though the painkiller/ice regimen is helping.

Eventually clued in to the fact that I do not work tomorrow. The clue being the huge number of people announcing that they would not be in on Friday. It also suddenly made the concern that somebody was covering (that would be me) sensible. Oh well. I'll enjoy the day, and nobody will be in on Friday, so there's not likely to be much stress. I've got a backlog of timekeeping to do.

So a lot of cute acts come out of Japan, but for my money, this is perhaps the coolest. Give it 60 seconds to let them hit their stride. This is Puffy Ami Yumi with Boogie Woogie #5.

Look at that

Not even two years later. And they say I don't update. Pfft.

So what's happening?

Right arm may be fractured. X-rays tomorrow.
Trip to Egypt planned for this January.
Did I own a piano last I blogged? I have one now.
And I am once again participating in that excruciating ritual known as NaNoWriMo.

Now, some music.

Ok, that was a pretty confused video. But the tune was good, no?

A little late...

Meant to post my favourite Christmas video before going away: Fairytale of New York by the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. Kirsty, of course, no longer with us. If you don't know the story, details here. But first, enjoy the video, and Merry Christmas.

(also, higher quality video here, *if* you hit the "watch in high quality" link to the bottom right of the frame -- no way to link directly to that version)

Never shot a Pantera fan

Been on a bit of a Tim Minchin kick lately. However, it was hard to find a clip that wouldn't require a language warning (there you go Keri, though not sure the content will make sense to a wee person in any case).

Some really good bits here (each very different), though the language warning applies. (Rock 'n' Roll Nerd, in particular, is not to be missed)

Some people have it worse than me.

So F***ing Rock

Rock 'n' Roll Nerd

Ah hell, these are excellent, too. (even more warning)

Inflatable You

If You Really Loved Me

Bike Hero

Well if you have any idea what this is at all, it will rock your sox.

Addendum: Well, as suspected in some places online, this was a viral advert by a PR company. Details from Activision here. Still very cool.

Hot Fashion Moments

Well, another birthday come and gone. Had lots of fun, though, and the festivities are not over. Julie got us Spamalot tickets at the NAC, and we are going this Tuesday.

The night of, we went for 10 pin bowling, and then drinks afterward. Some people apparently had better things to do -- and others were unintentionally left out -- sorry, James! For the former group, I only have the following to offer: you look mahvelous!


(ok, that's not entirely fair. I would have invited you, Erin! It was all very last-minute over here)

Ah, who am I kidding. I just had to use that picture. Hehe.

Now I am pretty much consumed with NaNoWriMo. Far more prepared than previous years, though that isn't saying much. I am behind in word count because I've been plotting -- something I should have been doing in October. OTOH, I am extremely happy with the story. So we shall see.

Chemical Party

'Nuff said.
