Billie Holliday is very soothing in the mornings, unfortunately, I had to leave her in the car CD player. Overcast day here, and hard to drag the bones out of bed. Holliday and a cup of tea at home with a book or the cyber paper with the yellow light of a lamp or two softly glowing against the grey rain outside would fit the bill nicely, but no such luck. Instead, I am cranky and here at work. Current method of paying the bills is not conducive to a stress-free state. :)
On the brighter side, an old friend's birthday is the day after mine, and I gave her an LJ code for it. Welcome, lsbd33!
