annoying music and impatience

Recently Played Songs:
         I am somewhat "on pins and needles" today. Which is to say I anticipate with some dread the results of last week's cardiac stress test and bloodwork. While the doctor who performed the test stated that there was nothing obviously wrong, I still don't feel well and want to hear the same from my own doctor.

         I've been listening to a new album that arrived Friday. It is Raven's Flight by Nomansland. It is good generally, but there is one song that annoys me. I don't know the name off the top of my head, but imagine, just for a moment, that vikings were still doing their plunder and pillage thing in the early 1800s. Imagine further that they somehow managed to reach the Gulf of Mexico and raid the Southern US. Now consider that these particular vikings heard the song "Polly Wolly Doodle" and really, really, liked it. If they took the song home and sang it for their friends, that is what this particular song on the Raven's Flight album would be like — A happy, bouncy, "prancing-viking", sort of song. It genuinely annoys me.

         I am shopping for more Ensiferum and Nachtfalke albums to take the taste of that song out of my ears, as it were.

         I've few plans for the week. I think I'll go out and have coffee at least one day. I should probably make a visit to the local Lowe's too. I'll let you know how that goes....
