Down for the count


Time for a little healing, indeed! I’m falling ill. Nagging, tickling cough started sometime yesterday and has just progressed. My throat is raw and scratchy, and I’m trying to not cough because when I do all I get is one big convulsion of my throat that hurts like a mofo. I’m determined to sit in my chair, drink juice, and watch tv all day. Rest.

Once again, my attempts at quitting smoking are given a boost: get me ill and smoking goes down to nothing, or next to nothing. Mmmm. Maybe I should pay attention to this!

My attempts to help myself through a little piano playing yesterday didn’t go so well. I laid my hands on the keyboard and found…

And once you’ve found that, it’s hard to let go of it. So I amused myself for 10 minutes by playing it out by ear. Got much further than I thought I ever could. Who knows? Maybe I’ll do a techno version someday.

Surrendered to dirt yesterday. I not only cleaned up around the house, I cleaned the dust-sucker (in Dutch, a vacuum or hoover is literally translated as dust-sucker. So much more appropriate). You’re gonna get dirty when you clean your cleaning tools. But I emptied everything out, wiped out all the grit and grime, and rinsed the filters. Good to go for awhile again.

Why the fuck am I writing about the goddamn dust sucker?

Fuck if I know.

Okay, I surrender. I’m a pussy when I get ill. My head goes all fuzzy and I just don’t make any sense. I slept eight hours, been up for two, and feel like I’m ready for breakfast and a nap. So I’ll go make my oatmeal, read a few more posts (keep falling behind on reading everyone’s words!), and then it’s chair time with my eyes closed.

I’m down for the count.

    1. Mashup, or more likely, new interpretation. I don’t sample; I re-create in homage to originals. But yeah, thinking about that moving bass line…Got to find the right arpeggiation for it. 🙂 Thanks! xo You my rock!
