my burden is the weight of a feather
I'm actually ahead of schedule in terms of cards to Europe/UK. Who would've thought! So if you asked for a card and you live in Europe, you will get it in time. Cards to North America and the rest of the world have been delayed though (which involves me ruining a card past the point of fixing), so forgive me if you don't get it until after Christmas!

In other news, I have finally met up with ungratefulwench and it was great! I managed to not mention Westlife so I THINK I didn't scare her. :D

Day 12 – A song from a band you hate

Black Eyed Peas - Where Is The Love?
I really don't like the Black Eyed Peas, and I don't think they practise what they preach, but I like this song.

meme scheduleCollapse )

I am still tired from a full week of busy work and crazy spamming, but I will do normal blogging stuff soon. A big Christmas card post, for example!

I have been sick most of the week. Still have a runny nose, which hasn't improved at all. :/

Anyhow, can we talk about the Halloween episode of Community? Epic doesn't even describe it. As a fan, I prefer more normal character interactions. But I feel like such a high concept episode (which 30Rock fans may or may not have viewed by accident) can give us new fans/viewers. I'm so happy for the moderate rating success! Abed/Troy = my OTP

Day 11 – A song from your favorite band

Saves the Day - Wednesday the Third

I have a few favourite bands, but I always have a soft spot for Saves the Day. I pretty much grew up with Chris Conley, and no one I know seem to share this love. The album In Reverie is even dearer to me because it's less popular among fans. Wednesday the Third is up there with "Writing To Reach You" as my favourite song. It's so dream-like and surreal - I pretty much got the current idea for my first novel from this song.

This video is made by a fan using a video of another song, which actually seems to fit. I like it except for the hipster dude, but I'm all for anything that introduces people to this song.

Today , I'm going to do a popular art workshop thing at a secondary school for my supervisor's research project. I hope it'll go well! I'm just going to post a quick entry for the meme and introduce this wonderful song.

Day 10 – A song that makes you fall asleep

Graham Nash - Another Sleep Song
So I'm kind of cheating with this one. It doesn't make me fall asleep, instead it gives insomnia. Still, this is my sleep song. I keep listening to this mellow but haunting tune. The first time I listened to this song, it was a cover by Fran Healy. The lyrics just stayed there and I had to look for the original version. Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) was around way before I was born, but they are so good!

If I had to choose some songs that actually bore me to sleep, it would probably be some hipster songs that I don't know the names of. :P

One more video and schedule. And yes, we're still doing this!Collapse )

Employment stuff, and not something I am used toCollapse )

Day 09 - A song that you can dance to

Jason Mraz - The Remedy
This is my dance-alone song. During my first couple months in Glasgow, I was mostly listening to music alone in my room or walking around in the campus alone. Jason Mraz's songs kept my head up and actually helped me gain one of my first friends (a girl from Colorado, who loves him). Back then, no one in HK knew him and I had to introduce his music to a few people. Now apparently many people are using his songs in their wedding, it's weird! It may sound stupid, but I do, and will, always have an unconditional love for his first album. But yeah, I can dance to this. This makes me happy and nostalgic.

Wow. We're merely on Day 9 and this meme is full of anecdotes alreadyCollapse )
