Ok, for my Xmas spoils — via my sister’s gift of an Amazon.com gift certificate — I’ve decided upon two audio discs by Goldfrapp (including one that has a bonus surround sound dvd version of the album — that should be neat!) and the extended version of Chronicles of Narnia. Make of that what you will. (I was in love with the books as a child, and today, well today the Witch is just damn hot)(I know, I know, she’s getting old, but come on, the power to turn me into stone would come in really handy).
I am not in touch with the modern music scene but I heard some Goldfrapp songs in the background of that movie D.E.B.S. that I mentioned earlier, and my housemate — who has a breadth of music knowledge only possible from technological progress — confirms they’re good.
I have to buy my mom and dad their Xmas items soon, this weekend ideally. They, like me, have been late in conceiving of such things. I’ve now got a small list from my mom but I’ll have to talk to my sister first to make sure we don’t overlap.
In other news, I’m trying to get a better hold on not shaking when I am nervous. I am seeing if when I feel my innards trembling, if I can choose to not let it have my focus. I’ve tried that once so far, and it seemed to be an improvement. Nay, it was an improvement.
Oh, also, we’re again trapped by now. I mean snow. We’re trapped by NOW!
