Well, my teenager has a very, very bad case of chicken pox. She’s had them before so color me shocked when I took her in this morning. I found a fiddleback spider in the laundry hamper last night and was seriously worried this was from a bite. Yesterday around six p.m., she had two spots. This morning– hundreds of blisters. Everywhere. And respiratory stuff with it. Poor thing is miserable. I’m hurting for her.
I had planned to finish up another column on description which is a continuance of the Keep it Real post earlierThe Write Snark: Keep it Simple , but I need to be with her today. We’re going to watch some movies to keep her mind off what’s happening to her and maybe later, I’ll let her add some of her CDs to my mix.
The soundtrack to The Shipping News. Amazon.com: The Shipping News: Music: Christopher Young,Alan Wilson,Robin Jeff
This is an EXCELLENT instrumental CD for writing!! Christopher Young composed it and I can’t say enough. Listen to the samples yourself. It has a Celtic feel… really, check it out. 🙂
Pollyn. New band. Mellow, trip hop style with female vox. I’ve had it a week and am enjoying very much. They have sample clips here Pollyn
G-Spliff’s My Melancholic Girls. This is a new one for me as well. I found it on Emusic. com, which is an excellent place to get legal downloads of music– mostly independent bands. This is trip hop as well. Need the mellow mood this week. (grin) Amazon.com: My Melancholic Girls: Music: G-Spliff
My Daughter’s Mix this week:
Flyleaf. FLYLEAF The music starts immediately when you pull up their site. It’s hard hitting metal with female vox. Should mix nicely with my more mellow choices this week. heh heh She’s working on her dad to take her to this concert in March. Along with…
All American Rejects. The All-American Rejects: Media / Music Okay, I confess, I have copies of this stuff myself. What can I say, my taste in music is all over the place.
Whatever cheers her up today is okay with me. Send up healthy wishes for the poor kiddo.
Meanwhile, don’t forget to check out Gena’s new book, Jewel of Atlantis. It’s already climbing the ranks at Barnes and Noble and I’m so thrilled for her!!!
