Rainy day thoughts

November 30, 2007

I just had to change my journal theme.  That fire place and hot cocoa is exactly how I like to spend rainy days.  That’s why I’m sitting at my desk at work with a portable heater at my feet and watching the rain pour down.  And I do mean pour.  It was really coming down hard for a while there.  It’s stopped for the moment, but the skies are still dark and gray.  It’ll probably start up again about the time I have to leave, in my car with no heater.  I bought boots just for this kind of situation.  And I even remembered to where them!

While I’m at work, I like to be listening to something, so I have several podcasts that I regularily listen to.  But every once in a while, I’ll bring music cds from home.  I’m putting all our cds in a database, so I brignt them to work and listen to them before getting them in.  It’s a good excuse to listen to some discs I haven’t heard in ages.  But then, my husband had to go and find all these discs of music from the sixties and seventies Ultraman and Super Sentai series.  He really likes those old live action series, and decided to share with me.  He filled by cd case and I brought them to work.  I thought the seventies Sentai sound with all the brass was scary enough.  I was wrong.  The sixties Ultraman totally has it over the Super Sentai seventies.  From children’s choirs with the booming bass voice, to the songs sung to/about the monsters (with the monsters joining in), to the upbeat marches and low key hymns, it’s really something you have to experience.

I am so glad I was an 80’s child.
