It has been a week since the parental unit left their house in my charge and I was starting to feel the cabin fever creep in. The house is in a small village smack in the middle of absolutely nothing and a windy field. Seriously the neighbour village has one of those big tourist road signs for the local pizza place. That’s how far out they live.
I did have an appointment today with the optician to pick up my new glasses but it was at 10. Getting up around 8 to stumble into a shower, clothes and then the local bus, which takes an hour, isn’t really my idea of a fun way to start out the day but I got it done. Mostly because it meant a few hours in civilization.
I got to the record shop to pick up two cds mum and I had got them to put aside for us and I managed to get out without buying anything else. Now it didn’t go that well in the Normal shop. It’s a discount shop that sells cosmetics, hair products, cleaning supplies and sweets. What else could a woman want? Okay perhaps handbags, books and films and cds but otherwise it has a pretty good selection. Now I had told myself that after I bought about 15 nail polishes, very cheap though from a German site, that I wouldn’t buy anymore nail polish this month. I came out with 5 bottles. I should be ashamed but I’m not.
Another thing that made it a joy to get out of the house was mum’s newest kitten. I think it’s number 3 or 4 in a line of unfortunate cats. One ran away, one got hit by a car, twice, and so on. But this kitten is Satan reincarnated. I am sure that the Americans have a top secret lab underneath Gitmo, surely the best place to hide it, where an evil mastermind is making weird tests and creating vicious creatures and super bugs. And this tiny kitten managed to escape and is now hiding as my mum’s pet. Just look at Hilary Clinton’s reaction to the news of it’s escape. Allergies my arse!
I normally like cats but this one is just stressful. If it isn’t making all kinds of noise it’s attacking something, often my dog Susie – once whilst she was out in the garden doing her business, or it’s demanding to be let in then out, then in and then out again over and over and over. ARGH!!
Apparently I lost my future as a crazy cat lady. I’ll get a ton of dogs instead.
Kacey Musgraves – Pageant Material
Now this is the cd I was sent to pick up. I introduced my mum to the first album and we are both big fans. I picked this one since it reminded me a bit of myself. I was very much a bit of a tomboy as a child and I tend to say things that make people think “Did she just say that?” and yes, yes I did.
Lukas Graham – Mama Said
This guy used to play a role in a very famous Danish children’s film and for ages I didn’t know it was the same guy. I own his first album and very much enjoy it and I will be getting his newest one.
Now this song did have me scratching my head for a while. It did at just a short point strongly remind me of another song. I did manage to figure out which ones. But telling you guys would be too easy. So, can you guys guess which song I was reminded of?
Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk ft Bruno Mars
Now this song is my new jam. I like listening to music whilst I cook and lately I’ve been doing my little cooking booty shake to this song. It is just fun and catchy.
Hugo – 99 Problems
A remake? of Jay-Z’s 99 problems but in a completely different genre. I heard it as the TV ad song for the TV series The Blacklist, a show I am very addicted to although I’m only halfway through season 2. I heard the song and I was hooked. It’s still one of my favourite songs.
