Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Another thing I'm pretty darn good at.


Listen to this crap.

Not like anyone is paying attention, but a few blogs back I wrote a list of things I'm good at doing and i totally forgot to add the one thing I'm best at: Making mixed cds.

I'm like a pro at this, I swear. Friends have requested my cds. I wish I could sell them. I'd be loaded. I'd pay off all my damn loans. I'd move to a beach, maybe in Austraila, and sell my cd's next to the catamarran rental guy. Man, that would be awesome.

I actually just made 2 mixed cd's for my pilates instructor because she would play the same crappy enya music every damn week. And finally I guess someone complained, so I took it as my chance to offer my expertise. I made the cd's and actually burned them for myself because they rock so much.

It's almost like an art to me (don't laugh). I have a certain technique, and I think about the mood of all the songs and if each one will fit with the previous or the one thereafter. It's like a little puzzle I have to figure out, and when I do I'm so pleased with myself for doing a good job. It's like finished a scarf I just knit. It's just that exciting!

I wonder if this is my calling. I guess it's a form of writing. It's sort of like advertising. And it's definitely music. So, maybe with a little help I can make my own NOW type of business. But it definitely wouldn't have songs from Britney Spears on it. Unless you like that sort of thing.

So, if anyone wants a CD, just let me know and I'd be happy to make one. It will give me practice and a little side project to do. Like I don't have work, gym, knitting, guitar lessons, reading and tv watching to keep me busy. But seriously, tell me what kind of theme (mellow, or working out, or rock, or etc.) and I'd be delighted to burn one right up for you.

Ohh! I love mix cd's. In fact I like them better then regular CD's because I get bored by too much of the same stuff.

Hi Barrie.

Kelly. Even though you've mixed me some mad cd's already, I'm ready for more.

Something upbeat and fun to cheer me up when I feel sad.
