Hm, that's an awful lot of meds. It's a bit of a catch 22 that focusing too much on a side effect can exacerbate it. I do hope they ease up, soon. Doesn't sound like fun at all.
Glad you're feeling okay about your exam. But seriously, I don't blame you for crashing after. Who in their right mind wants to go furniture shopping after something like that? Your folks have some daft ideas. I had a song on in the car on the way home that made me think of you and your folks: "Killing in the Name Of" by Rage Against the Machine (particularly the bit where it extensively repeats "**** you, I won't do what you tell me!".
Yeah, "Fix You" really backfired on me. In hindsight, knowing how worthless he was feeling, I got where he was coming from, but it wasn't at all my intent. I looked up "Mercy", by the way. Not bad at all.
Doesn't surprise me you haven't heard of the songs I mentioned. I usually don't bother talking about my music preferences because I typically just get blank stares. Portal is a Canadian progressive rock band - not exactly heavy, but not exactly light, either. The songs I mentioned touch on themes of economic class and being a tad out of synch with society. Josh Pyke is and Australian folksy type singer. Not my usual style, but he's a master wordsmith, in my opinion. Manages to take the mundane and make it kind of poetic, but with a hint of awkward intellectualism, which suits me perfectly. You'd have to listen to get where I'm coming from on that. And Gnarl is an Indian band. They're kind of a meld of genres, hard to describe. A bit on the heavy side, but really rich in both music an lyrics, in my opinion. Ooh, The Rasmus is another good band. Finnish, and on the heavyish side of rock, a bit emo in lyrics. Was listening to "In the Shadows" on the way home (it has a pretty good clip, too). Sorry, I'll stop bombarding you with music, now. I do know my tastes aren't for everyone.
I'm glad my wee birdies have made an impression. They don't really go looking for things to nest with, but they have plenty of other mischief to get up to. The eldest (and the smaller of the two) will bathe in my hands if I cup them under a running tap, and he did that tonight. Cutest darn thing.
Today was okay. Back to work, started at stupid o'clock, so pretty tired now. I'll get back to that other thread eventually. Not today though, as I have another early and plenty to do before I have to be in bed. Hope today was a better day for you.
