All of that thinking yesterday made me feel tired.

Too tired to update your comments?

I don't have internet at home, so I only get to do this stuff at work. Lately, I've been under the deadline drearies with grant contracts and board meetings. Didn't get to posted comments until just now...7 PM...yeah, I'm still at work :-(

And glad that you caught the humor, anonymous.

So is this a subtle hint that what you really want for Christmas is a Verizon wireless account with accompanying USB Wireless Broadband Adapter?

Then you could write your blog from the park. Or the tea house (Seven Cups has free wi-fi by the way). Or your car. Or your house, for that matter.

You're a big shot, running a non-profit, writing grant proposals. Maybe you should get a grant for wireless Internet.

One more thing:

I am definitely NOT into the same music scene as you, apparently.

(((((((shudder)))))))

Of course, as far as taste is concerned, mine run a bit askew, so maybe I'm not one to talk. I've been listening to Enya's new Christmas CD over and over and over again. Except for one song. She tried to go all Elton John on us, complete with piano riffs and an electric guitar solo. Elton-John-type music sucks when it's Elton John, much less Enya. Ewwwwwwwwwwww.

(((((((((shudder again))))))))))

Yes...maybe even a Blackberry or something like that!

Music: my taste ranges from Bach to Rock, as they say. Keep checking the updates of music; they sway all over the map depending on my mood the day I'm posting. In fact, Enya just fell off the rotation (most recent listen is top left, then top right, bottom left, bottom right).

I tried to find the Enya transliteration of the songs she did in the language that she made up (I forget the title at the moment), but never could get it. Only the music where she sings in that language.

Perhaps she'll return to her own gibberish instead of Elton John's. :)

Are you talking about Amarantine? Roma Ryan (who writes all of Enya's lyrics, I believe) wrote the lyrics in a language she made up. Enya.com used to have the translations available, but if not, I have the CD with the translations in the liner notes. Let me know if you want a translation for a particular song.

As far as I could tell, all of the songs on her new Christmas album are in English, Latin, or Gaelic.

Except for that one horrid Elton-like song. It's in the language of cheese.
