Maynard is sexy... HA!

I want to say thank you to everyone who wished me well over my oral issues I posted about yesterday. I appreciate it a lot. Y'all are great. I won't go on about it today but lets say I'm not feeling much better. Hopefully more of the pain starts to fuck off subside soon. :o) I was crying before work last night because the pain meds weren't helping and it was hurting like a motherfucker. I sucked it up, fixed my eyeliner and went in only a few minutes late. I was scheduled to be off at midnight and I ended up leaving at 11 pm instead. My manager asked if I wanted to go early. I figured it was only an hour. We were slow. I had all of my side work done and just had to clean a little before I took off. I kind of wanted the extra hour on my check but then again I wanted to go home and get more medicine in my system since I was about due up for the next dose. So, off I went at 11 pm. I doubt that I missed anything, lol.

I mentioned a few days ago that I needed some new books to read and nothing new is coming by any of my favorite authors any time soon. Some of you asked if I had anything in specific I stuck to readings. I do horror, fantasy, mystery, biography, history and tons of things. I love books that make me think too. I like when an author can get inside my head. I absolutely don't do romance novels or anything with a lot of romance or girly stuff in it. That's the one thing I just can't get in to. I'd rather eat liver. Lol. Any suggestions are welcome. I'm open to checking out new stuff... as long as it's not romance, trendy or overtly girlie. Helpful right? Lol.

My boyfriend finally updated his blog with a post after over a month with nothing. He's been a busy boy though, working lots of hours and all of that fun stuff that keeps him away from his computer. Which is fine. Right? Right. Check it out if you want to. :o)

I know there was something else I wanted to rant about but for the life of me I just can't remember what it was. Hmm... Oh well. If I do remember, I can always come back and edit it if it's something I really want to put out there.

I love the band Apocalyptica. They're a Finnish cello metal band. Yes, you read that right. Classically trained cellists playing metal. I first heard of them in 2002 and that was after they turned over a couple of band members. Then in 2003, they started adding drums to their music with the drummer of Slayer doing the recordings and then their current drummer being the one to play shows and tour with them. In 2005, they announced the drummer as an official member of the band. The concept of a cello metal band intrigued the hell out of me at first. I love classical music. Incorporating metal and classical music instruments into one thing is amazing. There are some bands who do it that I just pass on. Some bands though, like Apocalyptica, is one of the ones I really like. This video is Apocalyptica featuring Adama Gontier of the band Three Days Grace doing the vocals for the song. Which is cool because I like Gontier's voice. I love this song. The video is odd, kind of lame but kind of cool too. I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea and that's cool with me. ;) Don't bash me for liking it and I won't bash you for not liking it. :D

Have a GREAT
Weekend y'all!!!

Ouch! Hope you're healing quickly. Reading suggestions - if you like science fiction, try "The Good Old Stuff" and "The Good New Stuff" edited by Gardner Dozier (sp?) Both are collections of short stories, one being classics stuff from the '50's and '60's, and the other of more recent publications. The library should have them.
