Well, off to a good start

When Mike’s alarm went off at 7am, well before the sun was up, my brain woke up. And wouldn’t go back to sleep! Nooooooo! I’d planned to sleep in a bit today, but I reckon not. Ok, fine – all the better to get The Plans underway, then.

I want to find an apron pattern today, and I’ve had Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight” lodged in my brain for a few days, so I downloaded her greatest hits album from iTunes, and I have that playing whilst surfing retro apron patterns. This is a fantastic start to the day!

My memories of this song are probably atypical.

I never really heard Patsy when I was growing up, except on the commercials for the classic country hits albums from K-Tel and the like. However, when I lived in Chehalis, Washington, and spent nearly every night at The Olympic Club shooing snooker, we had The Best Jukebox Ever. I loved loading that thing up with Gorillaz, Metallica, Killers… and Patsy Cline. I miss that place so much… it was an old saloon from the early 1900’s, where train robbers and sheriffs would hang out. Antique woodwork everywhere, full-sized pool tables, a real snooker table, a hotel, a movie theatre, a delicious restaurant and bar, all under one roof. It sounds very strip-mally, but it’s just the opposite – a warm, cozy, delightfully olde tyme hangout the locals treasure.

After I got Patsy secure on my computer, I looked at the recent music I’d purchased: Lacuna Coil, Korn, Flogging Molly, Meshuggah, Opeth… and Patsy. 😀

I was just dancing around the office to “Back in Baby’s Arms” while I gathered stuff up, enjoying the great start to the day despite the miserable rainy weather outside, and stepped directly into a giant pile of dog vomit.

<facepalm>

Touche, Day – we’re going to have to get back to a better start here.
