“I have too many flaws to be perfect, but I have too many blessings to be ungrateful”

(Quote taken from ziglar.com)

I’m still here.  I won’t apologize for my absence this time because, well, I just won’t.  It’s been another hectic few months and too many ups and a lot of downs that it does no good to muse on.  In the past week, though, a fantastic milestone has been reach and Battysgirls and I are officially at the 300 page mark in the book.  The better part of that is the fact that they are 300 USABLE pages!!!

We are finally at a point where I can see an end to Book 1 and it’s an end we are both excited about, at least I think both of us are 😉  So, in honor of the apex of this hill being within sight, (no surprise here) I’m going to post a playlist that makes me feel the hell that we’ve put each of these characters through so far followed by a few songs that hint at their endings.










Iris and Daniel:



Muse and LOST

So Cats and Kittens- it is the end of an era-

OK, So I’m being dramatic, but honestly, think about where you were 6 years ago- come-on!  LOST is done, they’ve wrapped everything, except the fact that Walt and Michael were nowhere to be seen in the finale, into a nice little bow. AND I have to admit that I’m a bit ambivalent about the ending.  I’m not what you would have called a rabid lost fan- in fact, I missed most of the middle seasons because I had to work and would mainly catch up by streaming episodes on the internet, but WTF!

Heaven- seriously- they all “moved-on”?  I would have thought that the creators would have gone to a point in the merging of the timelines where each of the characters would make a choice and pick a reality or something sufficiently sci-fi, but they went very mainstream in my opinion.

That being said- I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I’ve loved and lived and lost with all of the characters and I bow to the genius of the composers and writers who made the entire world love the characters in this show.  This does not change the fact that I’m still ambivalent about how you decided to answer all of the questions and I do find myself wondering if this was the intended outcome from day 1.

So, for this ambivalent moment I give you something that I am also ambivalent about- Muse covering Nina Simone.  I love the fact that this song has had such a fantastic life- La Femme Nikita, Muse, Chuck, and many others Movie-TV-Musical covers, but I’m still not too sure how to feel about this cover so I offer up both versions for your perusal.
