That when you're all set and ready to buy something, you can't find anything? I was all set to order books last night - what with our dollar being par and all - and that wacky Amazon didn't have hardly any recommendations for me. Well - they had quite a few but either I already had the book or it didn't appeal to me. Normally, when I'm not actively shopping, I'll get page after page and since I read all genres, some of them really look intriguing. I'll get anything from Science Fiction romance to Medievals. Last night all they gave me were Westerns and Historicals. Now I like both those genres - don't get me wrong. But I was in the mood to go wild and nothing wild came up!
This happens in other areas too! When I don't have the money, I'll find all kinds of clothes I like. When I do - nada. It's one of life's mysteries.
And in other news - I mentioned a while ago that I'm going to see Loreena McKennit. Well the concert is tomorrow night *shiver*. We have seats on the floor - THREE ROWS FROM THE FRONT!! I *ahem* may have mentioned this before. So I will leave you with one of my favourite songs - The Highwayman. I found this version on YouTube. It's Ms. McKennit's interpretation of the famous poem put with different scenes. And whoever did the video did include pics of Gerard Butler - and that's never a bad thing. Warning though- the song is long - almost 10 minutes.
The song is beautiful and so very sad. So get the kleenix out and enjoy
Here is the original poem if anyone is interested. *heavy sad sigh*
Now I'm going to go out and sit on the patio with a beer and a book and maybe another beer 'cause it's Friday, I don't work tomorrow, I'm going out dinner with Lisa first and then going to see one of my two favourite singers. Life can be good sometimes.
