Two unrelated musings

Firstly, I have never had what you could really call a good taste in music. My ex flatmate used to describe it as "wailing women" and generally she had a point. But I have been tricked into liking songs by artists I unequivocally loathe or at least should know better than to like. This happens when I hear a song on the radio and then the announcer is all "that's the new song from Avril Lavigne" and I'm like "fuck".

It happened the other night. I was watching an episode of Without A Trace, the episode started with an artist who photographs people without their knowledge and then turns them into paintings going missing. Her exit was accompanied by a rock song that caught my attention and I really liked it. So much so that I went to IMDb and looked up the episode to see if they had a song credit listed. They did. It was "The Kill" by 30 Seconds To Mars. Yes. Seriously. Apparently I'm an emo kid who loves Jared Leto.

Secondly, I don't know if I have blogged about it, but I have a new job. I am currently going through phases of loving and hating it. I am sort of in between the two peaks at this precise moment. The job is so full on intense that Christmas has almost arrived without me really noticing (I mean, how the fuck did it get to be almost 2008? What the hell?). But walking to work this morning, I had a realisation that this week is my last five day working week until 21st January. Next week is Christmas, the week after that I have New Years Eve and New Year's Day off. The week after that, I have Friday 11th off as I am flying out to Tenerife to see the parents for nine days. And whatever I may think of my job, realising that made me VERY happy, I can tell you.
