Reasons to be Cheerful 18/01/2011

So, who knew, exercise really does make you happy. I can't remember a time I've been cheerful so much!

- I got through my whole exercise regime without stopping last night
- The sun has come out today
- I have re-discovered my love of singing (badly)
- I am far less overdrawn than normal

Reasons to not be cheerful:

- I have hurt my knee
- I forgot to bring a new box of teabags to work

Reasons to be Cheerful 15/01/2011

- Cleaned out two drawers of 'stuff this morning'

- My Pingu t-shirt fits again

- I bought a shirt reduced from £55 to £16.50 in the Monsoon sale, which fits perfectly, and was bought with vouchers I was given

- My sister-in-law gave me a Lush bubble bar

- We played Rock Band all afternoon until my voice was nearly gone

- I don't have to get up in the morning

Nightwish Albums (in order of preference)

As today is the birthday of Marco Hietala, bassist of Nightwish, who are one of my favourite bands, this mornings list is of Nightwish's albums, in the order I think is best. 1 is highest!

1. Wishmaster
2. Century Child
3. Dark Passion Play
4. Oceanborn
5. Angels Fall First
6. Once

I haven't included compilations, EP's or live albums here, just studio releases. And despite the fact I saw the Once Tour, I still think it's their weakest album!

Things That Annoy Me About Work (pt. 1)

- Being spoken to like I'm an idiot because I simply happen to work here. Just because I don't have a degree doesn't mean I'm stupid.

- Being shouted at for other peoples mistakes.

- Having to talk to idiots all day

- Having to deal with people who don't listen.

Expect more of these. Work is terrible right now.

I like to make lists. I like to read lists. And now I'm going to blog lists.

Lists of anything, everything, and then some.

Reasons for list making:

- It's nice to have everything in one place
- It's nice to tick things off when you've done them
- It's an easy way to order things
- People like to know other people's favourite films, books, albums, breed of dogs - and having them all written down already means not having to waste time trying to remember what was on your list originally.

I don't know how often I'll be updating. Maybe several times a day, maybe once a week. I might also be open to submissions of other people's lists.
