innocentlyjaded: (an artistic mess)
It's 1:30 in the morning here. I need to sleep because of work, but I'm still up and scanning a whole lot of songs to stock my new-old ipod classic (80gb) that my sister had bequeathed to me last christmas (since what seems like one-fourth of humanity have also taken to their iphones for that).

So the majority of songs on Suu (yes, that's her name :3) belong to Tori Amos, Tom Waits and Shiina Ringo. I'm looking forward to [ profile] mienaihoshi's L'arc en Ciel, Luna Sea, Vocaloid and Nico Nico Douga ones. I'll dig up my old music cds once everything's been settled.

And [ profile] lanoyee just recc'ed Laleh to me, and she sounds awesome ^^

Haven't been able to post anything on the book blog since I was down with fever for the past few days :/ I owe it my book wishlist and general reading plan for 2011 (which... well, no plans yet).

I'm also starting on re-reading all of the Harry Potter books before the final installment of the Deathly Hollows movie opens later this year. Well, re-read 1-4, since I wasn't able to read 5-7, aheh.

[ profile] heterotopic, your answers are coming up!

but who really knows?

all i know is the the voices in my head are screaming at me again. and the silence in the room in screaming back.

i need music on the move. i need to take photos again. i need, i need, i need...


On my second week of foundation training. Product training is next week. Well, providing that they won't text me to say that I won't need to attend product training because I didn't pass foundation training.

I'm not saying that I'll fail on Friday. I'll give it my damndest good try. I rather like my batchmates (almost all of them veterans already from other call centers) and the account. It's just the calls that are making me nervous. I know, I know. We haven't been given the account specifics yet. And we're just in the training phase. I just hope these fears vanish soon.


What's getting me through all this? Shiina Ringo, Olivia, DAI and Tori Amos songs and lyrics ringing inside my head. I NEED AN MP3 PLAYER T___T AND CAMERA...

it's four in the morning, the end of december
i'm writing you now just to see if you're better
new york is cold, but i like where i'm living
there's music on clinton street all through the evening.

i hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
you're living for nothing now, i hope you're keeping some kind of record.

yes, and jane came by with a lock of your hair
she said that you gave it to her
that night that you planned to go clear
did you ever go clear?

ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
you'd been to the station to meet every train
and you came home without lili marlene

and you treated my woman to a flake of your life
and when she came back she was nobody's wife.

well i see you there with the rose in your teeth
one more thin gypsy thief
well i see jane's awake --

she sends her regards.

and what can i tell you my brother, my killer
what can i possibly say?
i guess that i miss you,
i guess i forgive you
i'm glad you stood in my way.

if you ever come by here, for jane or for me
your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
i thought it was there for good so i never tried.

and jane came by with a lock of your hair
she said that you gave it to her
that night that you planned to go clear --

sincerely, leonard cohen
