In case you hadn't noticed already, I have already been using it for a while, and cross-posting in LJ. My handle there is margarita_r. See you on the flip side.

I finally put together this year's holiday music on my phone

Ensemble Unicorn: On The Way To Bethlehem
Mediaeval Baebes: Mistletoe and Wine
Gregorio Panagua: Villancicos (there's E La Don Don and Riu Riu Chiu in there, so it's legit!)
Jethro Tull: A Xmas Album
Loreena McKennit - A Winter Garden
V/A: Excelsis-A Dark Noel

and the piece de resistance:
Tolzer Knabechor: Weihnachten Daheim.

Should be sufficient to battle store-imposed music, I think.

On other news,

Greece still doesn't have a Prime Minister. I was glued in front of my screen all morning for nothing. While drinking bad coffee. Boo!

Rinse and repeat tomorrow I guess. Must get better coffee. Preferably flavoured.

Cross-posting test with a cause

I'm off to Crystal Ball in a few hours and will sporting my spiffy black italian ren dress, laced all the way in.

This makes me happy.

Also, I'll play dance pit. Which makes me happy too. Have not done so since forever.

I will be giving this a try

I'm seeing an increasing number of people making the switch, so I'd very much like to see if I prefer this better. Especially after killing my LJ paid account.

..thanks for the Pennsic card! Nothing like having a piece of War at home, let alone knowing what awesome friends I have!

I'm not the console rpg game type person, but...

..i've spent the last week playing Dragon Age - Origins, and somehow, I really hope that Splenda, my 18 level rogue/duellist won't die. Repeatedly, that is.

The funniest thing is while poking the various game forums, everyone's raving how their beefed up warrior did this and that. The RL rogue in me laughs a little contented laugh. Hah.

Umf. I had to take a break cause my brain hurt and I had to let R. play his dwarf too..

Sometimes, surralism.

Like, working out at 10 in the evening and reading The Wife of Bath's Tale, from translation, Penguin's edition, while on the elliptical. Aloud. It's sure a good breathing exercise. The Panagua sountrack was only fitting, I just had to stop for a moment and realize what I was doing.

See, I cannot read verse silently, I lose track of the meaning. How odd is that?

Why jump off a cliff when I can do a meme instead?


You are The Moon


Hope, expectation, Bright promises.


The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.


The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

I was going for the D minor but this will work too.


Your result for What's your key signature?...

A Major

I hope you know how to boogie.

Congratulations, you’re A Major, and you got them blues! A Major is an ideal key for playing blues in, due to its decreased number of sharps when played with flat 3rds and 7ths. Guitar players love this key, and several have actually made careers of playing A, D and E chords over and over again in that oh so cliché I IV V progression we all know and love. Being a bluesy key is a blessing, since you can be emotive and soulful out the ass. All that’s missing is a few blue notes and you’re golden.


So you may not have the blues, you say? Well this key isn’t really about sadness, it’s about being individualistic and emotive, with enough soulfulness to go around. You can’t help but be an emotional person, but that’s a great thing. Just don’t stay on the metaphorical blue notes too long, eventually dissonance gets a wee bit obnoxious.


SONG EXAMPLE: Lady Madonna by The Beatles.


INTERESTING TIDBIT:


* Despite clarinets being tuned in B Flat, a good number of Mozart’s clarinet based works are written in sharp key signatures, notably including a lot of A Major. I guess he had some sort of grudge against the poor clarinetist he hired.

You get what you pay for

or, my new shredder, let me show you it.

It's powerful, and silent, and efficient, and it's gonna shred a metric crapton of old stuff that we won't take with us and thank us for the priviledge.

The lack of shredding related headache also pleases me. Because in general, I quite hate moving packing and every little convenience counts.

This 2009 thing?

I haven't decided whether it'll be good or bad. Ask me again in a couple of weeks or so.

Till then, Happy New Year :)

You Should Have a Gold Christmas Tree



For you, the holidays represent a time of optimism and wealth.

You definitely have a generous spirit, and you give a lot during the holiday season.



You really go over the top for Christmas. Everyone on your list gets a great gift.

Even if you don't have a lot of money during the holidays, it's the one time you pretend like you do.



Your gold tree would look great with: All kinds of metallic decorations



You should spend Christmas Eve watching: Miracle on 34th St



What you should bake for Santa: A ton of cookies, cupcakes, and candy. You would enjoy spoiling him.
