Humpday Listday: It Isn't Wednesday.

I know it isn't Wednesday, but it's been so long since I've posted a list, I decided it didn't matter what day it was. This list is a two-parter.

Things that are ruining my day:
  1. Burned my hand on my curling iron this morning. All 5 fingers and a little palm. Big Ouch.
  2. Had a fender-bender on Friday in the rain. So I don't have a car until mine gets fixed.
  3. It's still raining. The proof is coming in through the roof of the shop where I work and landing in a bucket.
  4. I stepped in a puddle in my new shoes (that have the cutest cut-outs that let the water in) when I went out to the curb to get the lunch that the Hubs so kindly brought me to work.
  5. Also, my hair got soaked and now all the hard work I put in with the offending curling iron is ruined.
  6. I'm working all day at the shop and can't leave. Even though there hasn't been one. single. customer. All day.

Things that are making me smile anyway:
  1. I'm editing engagement photos for Jessica & Justin and there are quite a few that make me get all mushy inside and go "Aaawwwwwww!"
  2. I have a dinner date with Jessica tonight!
  3. Cranking up the radio at the shop since there are no customers. :)
  4. Getting emails that people are "liking" my mixes on 8tracks.
  5. Having the will-power to get the fruit-cup as a side at Chick-fil-a instead of fries.
  6. Watching City Slickers and City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold this weekend.

Frank Signed My Secret!

Georgia Southern hosted a Postsecret event tonight and I got Frank Warren (founder of Postsecret) to sign my secret in the book. Aaaaand on the back where it appears on the dust jacket. AND he said it was a very important part of the book. So exciting!


Thursday, January 20, 2011


So, um.... no January mix. I actually put the mix together, but when I listen to it, it just doesn't excite me. It doesn't make me happy. It's just not good enough. So it will most likely never see the light of day. I may poach songs from it for future mixes.

There is some good news, though! I'm working on mixes for February and March already, so it isn't too bad. Also, I'm packaging last year's "Sweethearts on Parade" mix for download and 8tracks, so you'll have a little bonus mix.

Cover Me Mondays: God Only Knows

It's my favorite Beach Boys song. It's about time I did this one.

The Beach Boys, God Only Knows, Original, 1966:

Neil Diamond, (with bonus psychedelic video), 1977:

David Bowie, 1984:

Elton John, live, 2001:

Julia Nunes (YouTube sensation), 2007:

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., 2010:

Rivers Cuomo (of Weezer), 2011:

And the verdict? Original is best. The Beach Boys will always win in this fight.
Happy Monday, Happy New Year.
