The Glass of Awesome

I had been dragged into one of the local stuff stores, and I spent my time there wandering aimlessly, trying to balance the wooden easel I was carrying on my shoulder while my friends searched the place for things of questionable use.

Then, suddenly, there they were! Green plastic glasses, designed for pure awesome and decorated with classy dinosaurs facing each other in a show of contempt for the world at large. Ayn Rand would have fallen on her knees were she not dead, worshipping this work of art!



Since I am a grown-up, at least in theory, I kept hold of myself and made sure my expression stayed blasé as I struck an uncaring pose and declared that I would have loved those if I were still a child. Evidently, xhakhal was not fooled, for I walked out of that store with a small bag hanging from my easel.

Once I got home, I immediately started plotting, and the day after I realized that the only beverage that could ever make this Glass of Awesome any justice would be the non-alcoholic Mojito I was currently staring at! I held my consecration ritual in my new living room that same evening, and I've simply refused to use another glass in the house since.

Here's a picture of my sanity slipping:

Music Meme!

It's time for a music meme! Here are the instructions:

- Reply to this post and i'll assign you a letter.
- List (and link) 5 songs you love that begin with that letter.
- Post them to your journal with these instructions.

Xhakhal gave me the letter R, because I'm always right!

Here goes:

Heather Alexander - Ragged Man
Heather Alexander is an awesome singer/songwriter who moves in the peculiar genre folk/new age/fantasy. Often funny lyrics, great guitar.

Cake - Rock 'n' Roll Lifestyle
Never forget about the cake! Witty, sarcastic lyrics, almost jazzy rhythm. This is only one of many songs I love by these guys.

Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer - Red (elegy)
These two and their music will always hold a special place in my music collection. Country/folk/new age. Calm, melodic music. Don't listen to this song if you're down, because it's sure to make you sink deeper.

Missy Higgins - The River
Singer/songwriter from Australia. Amazing talent. She writes mostly of love, but this is one glaring exception. Once again, don't listen to this if you're down.

Tori Amos - Real men
This is a cover, but it's a good one, and who can resist the combination of  Tori Amos and great lyrics?
