A Little Different

Well, the world didn't end...but it seems I fell of the face of it for a couple weeks. I've been off work since December 14th (and don't go back until the 2nd). 

Don't be too jealous. Other than a short trip to Dallas, a couple Christmas gatherings, and a few dinners with friends I've just been lying on the couch watching Sex and the City. 

Oh wait, that is something to be jealous of, isn't it?

My staycation has been great. And it also showed me that I could never work from home. I have no motivation to do anything productive while I'm on the couch. Hence the disappearance from blogland. 

But I'm back! With less than 2 days left in 2012, I thought it was time.

Twenty Twelve has been quite a year, but I'm glad it's coming to an end. I'm ready for a new start. A new year, new goals, new adventures.

I set a "12 in 2012" goal list 12 months ago and completed three and a half of them. I blogged only when I felt like it (obviously), I bought a new car, and I made monthly budgets...I just went over budget every single month.

 My 2013 goals will be a little different.

My 2013 will be a little different.

Will yours?

Throwback Thursday: Movies

Last week, I ventured into the past and watched three of my old favorite movies. All are grossly underrated, might I add.


A talented, young programmer reluctantly joins a large corporation...and then fights to bring them down.



Two guys of very different means become "soul mates" in a secret society at an Ivy League school. Their relationship and the organization are both tested.



A young man believes he sees his long lost love in a restaurant and begins searching for her and trying to piece together the clues as to why she left.



It's just a plus that these movies feature Ryan Phillippe, Joshua Jackson, Paul Walker, and Josh Hartnett. Hello man candy. They really are, even re-watching years later, three of my favorite movies. If you haven't seen any (or all) of these movies, watch them ASAP! And then tell me what you think.

Want It Wednesday: Stuff my Stocking

Just 13 days until Christmas! I've already let you in on what I want (ahem, Julian Edelman) but what about smaller, stocking stuffer gifts? Since I was a little kid, my stocking has always included an apple, an orange, and a $1 bill. But aside from those things, here's an idea of what it may contain this year.



1. EOS chapstick -- the best thing that has ever touched my lips.
2. Essie nailpolish -- in a nude color (this one is called topless).
3. Maybelline Great Lash -- the best and CHEAPEST mascara of all time.
4. Makeup brushes -- with 2 dogs, I have very few left.
5. Socks -- I want to spend my extra money on booze, not necessities.
6. Sharpie pens -- for my incessant OCD.
7. Gloves -- but only if you can find some that fit my tiny baby hands.
8. Big Sexy Hair -- travel size hairspray. Now that I actually fix my hair and carry a purse.

I'm not linking to any of those because they can all be found at WalMart.


See? I'm easy. Now stop complaining, Mom.


What will your stocking be stuffed with this year?

The Dating Diaries: Vol 1

The Coin Toss

I was a freshman in college. They were seniors. As best friends and roommates, they had a lot in common. Well, they had the same major and the same taste in women, obviously.

I met them in class and for weeks denied their advances. [Most of these advances occurred via Myspace and MSN messenger.] I used every excuse in the book to refuse their dinner requests. I didn't want the drama of choosing between two friends and honestly, I had no idea who I would pick.

As a college freshman living on limited funds and refusing to ever eat Ramen, I eventually got hungry and caved. Earlier in the day, I had turned down the offer to have dinner with both of them (because, well, that's weird...right?). But when I got back to my dorm room and realized I was out of Easy Mac, I gave them a call.


Thirty minutes later, I was headed downstairs to meet the guys for dinner. When I got to the lobby, I was greeted by just one of them. 

"He couldn't make it, so it'll just be us. Is that okay?"

So there it was, just the two of us. On a first date.

After a rocky relationship that spanned the full length of my freshman year, we broke up.

A year or so later, when I was seeing the other friend (yes, that happened) he let me in on a secret. Once I finally agreed to go to dinner with them, they flipped a coin to determine who actually got to take me out.


I still wonder how different things would have been if that coin had landed on its other side.

The Dating Diaries Are Here

I promised I would share a few more personal stories here at Faye'sbook. Dating stories, that is. I have experienced love and loss. Epic romances, tragic heartbreak, and (more often than not) hilarious mishaps in my [love] life.

Cue new blog topic.



I don't know how regular this post will be. I guess that depends on how many new stories I can add to the mix. But don't worry, I have plenty saved up to share with you soon.

Soon begins tomorrow.

See you then.

Confession: Dating Advice

I have a big confession to make today.


All of my friends* come to me for relationship advice and I have no idea what I'm doing.

I've been single for almost 3 years. During that time, I haven't even had a meaningful fling. (Though I've had a few meaningless ones.)

Yet, I seem to be the relationship guru for my friends. Gay, straight, single, in a relationship, married -- all of them come to me.

"How can I tell if he's interested in me?"
"How can I get him to be interested in me?"
"How can I get him to not be interested in me anymore without hurting his feelings?"

I think back to years ago when I actually had a love life and tell them what I would do. And guess what? Somehow, it works!

So why can't I get it to work on myself?


What do you have to confess?


*My sister is the only one who doesn't ask me for dating/relationship advice. 
Either she knows that I don't actually know what I'm doing or she doesn't 
want good advice.

Want It Wednesday

The Christmas countdown is approaching zero rapidly. I feel like just yesterday it was October 3rd. 


But no...Christmas is only 27 days away.

So, of course I must discuss the most important issue this holiday season.

What I want.



If you can get me Julian Edelman for Christmas, I would greatly appreciate it. However, his jersey will suffice. Via NFLShop.com (Size Youth XL)



Steve Madden Troopa boots in tan leather, size 6




Ray-ban Erika with Rubberized Havana frames and Brown Gradient lenses



What do you want this Christmas? Hopefully not Julian Edelman, cause he's mine.


You can see my full Christmas wishlist on Pinterest here (Mom).

I Am An Ole Miss Rebel

Our regular season has ended and the Rebels finished 6-6, as we defeated Mississippi State to bring the Egg Bowl trophy back to Oxford.


We've had a season of ups and downs, and I don't mean first downs. 
But no matter how much we struggle, I'll always be an Ole Miss Rebel.

When I enter Vaught-Hemingway stadium, even a few years removed from being a student, I get chills. It is a sacred place; a place full of hope. It has seen amazing victories and heartbreaking losses. 



This year was a great year for the Rebels. Every year is a great year, win or lose, but this year was special. It was a fresh start. A fresh start with a new coach. A coach we've all accepted and loved. Hugh Freeze, the man who taught us all that we must WIN THE DAY.




"Lock The Vaught" from Ole Miss Rebels on Vimeo.


We've had some great times in the Vaught this year. We only won 4 of our games there, but we played hard. We cheered harder. Plus, we had some special people join us in the Hotty Toddy chant.

The end of the season is a bitter-sweet time. I'm proud of my Rebs, but am going to miss the Grove and the Vaught (and Charles Saywer). But hey, we're Bowl eligible so we'll have one more game, albeit not in the Vaught. I'm hoping for Nashville or Memphis, but it's looking like Birmingham.


The countdown to next season begins now!


Hotty Toddy.

5-6

As our Rebels took the field in Baton Rouge at Death Valley, we piled in the Lyric to cheer them on (and raise money for The Pantry).



In between the cheers, the beers, the hotty toddys, the touchdowns, and the lead changes (actually, LSU only lead us twice -- once in the second quarter and once with less than a minute left on the clock), we enjoyed food from local restaurants, door prizes, and a silent auction.

We faced a heartbreaking (and typical) loss as LSU scored in the final seconds of the game to take the lead 41-35. 

The best outcome of the day? We raised thousands of dollars for the Oxford community. 
Also, we still won the party.





Next week, the Mississippi State Bulldogs will be at our house. State has held the Egg Bowl trophy for 3 years straight. It's our turn to get it back. I have no doubt in my mind that we will. 


Hotty Toddy.

Sexiest Man Alive?

Channing Tatum, eh?

Photobucket

At first, I was disappointed. When I think of the sexiest man alive, the person that pops into my head is Ben Affleck. And not just Ben Affleck circa Good Will Hunting or Armageddon. Ben Affleck in Argo is just as sexy. He'll always be my #1. 

Channing Tatum is -- I use the same words for describing an old boyfriend of mine -- "he's totally hot but he kinda looks white trash". Don't even try to argue with me, you know it's true.

That's why the only character Channing ever plays is a semi-skanky, kinda trashy, maybe a little dumb guy with massive sex appeal.

Massive sex appeal? Oh yeah. Then maybe he is the Sexiest Man Alive.

Refresher

After a doozie of a weekend (seriously, at least one person was crying at all times) -- I spent last night relaxing with some alone time. Just me, a bottle of wine, and the DVR. It was perfect. And it reminded me that everyone needs a little recharging every now and then.

Personally, I love being alone. It gave me time to think when I needed to think and to watch all the stupid TV shows I record when I needed to escape my thoughts.

I also enjoy drowning myself in music. Sometimes I don't want to think or talk...I just want to listen. Lately, I've been listening to The Shins non-stop. So soothing.

I've also decided to do a little freshening up in blog land. I follow so many blogs that I skip over and don't read or never comment. No more of that. I need to start reading and commenting and drawing inspiration from all of you.

Lastly, I'm adding a new topic of discussion to my blog posts. When I talk about personal things...I talk about football and concerts and friends and the Library and awkward situations I get myself into...but I never talk about dating. And boy, do I have some funny / interesting / heartbreaking stories. So I think it's time (for you and for me) that I get those off my chest. I hope you're ready. They're coming soon.

5-5

Yes. When I last wrote about my beloved Rebels, we were 4-3. Now we're 5-5...not Bowl eligible with only two games remaining in the season. LSU and Mississippi State. I think we'll win them both.

After our Homecoming victory over Auburn, we traveled to Arkansas to defeat the razorbacks in a tight 30-27 win. The following week, we lost to Georgia on the road 37-10. And this weekend...we had a devastating loss to Vanderbilt at home. 27-26.

But as always, we didn't lose the party.

With Rach, Walters brothers + Walter sisters, birthday celebrations, Alex's first Grove experience

View from our awesome seats

Morgan was given south endzone box tickets for her birthday. The view was great but the food was even better. She was embarrassed that I went back for a second breadstick. No shame here.


Next weekend, the Rebels travel to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU tigers. I have hope that we'll pull out a win. 

I'll be watching from Oxford. If you're in the area, come out and join us!



Hotty Toddy!

Decide what to be.



When nothing is owed, deserved, or expected
And your life doesn't change by the man that's elected
If you're loved by someone, you're never rejected
Decide what to be, and go be it

I Voted!

...and I didn't get a sticker so I have to make sure everyone knows.




I have reasons why I'd like to support each candidate. But ultimately, I had to choose one side. I think one candidate will do a better job than the other, but I don't think it will be the absolute end of the world if the other candidate wins. Even though December 21, 2012 is just a little over a month away.

I hope you voted today. Or didn't. Whatever you want to do. Because in America, you have the right to vote. And the right to not vote. You have the right.

Just like you have the right to post obnoxious things on Facebook. But you also have the right to unfriend people who do the same.

Here's to rights. Here's to America.

Confessional

I have some heavy stuff going on right now, but it's Friday so let's not worry about that today.



[1]

Until I typed that first sentence, I thought it was Wednesday. When I realized it was Friday I got really excited and clapped my hands and wiggled in my chair.

[2]

A coworker put her leftover Halloween candy in my office. I've had three pieces. This morning.

[3]

I'm leaving town tomorrow morning for a wedding, but I told two different people that I left Thursday because I didn't feel like hanging out with them.

[4]

I just ate a fourth piece of candy.

[5]

As I was trying to think of a fifth confession (because I have to have five), I clicked through Thought Catalog and ended up reading about 10 articles and forgot about this post entirely.

November Blue

I can't believe it's November already. I feel like 2012 just started. I also haven't completed ANY of my goals for this year. 

Maybe 2013 will be my year.

No, 2013 will be my year.

And November will be the month that I blog regularly again.

Starting tomorrow.

Miscellaneous Monday

I've been such a slacker lately. I have a million posts in my head but I can't seem to get them to translate into words on the screen. So, for now, I'll just spew miscellaneousness.


It's October 29th and I haven't even touched a pumpkin. I've touched cans of pumpkin puree (for pumpkin cookies + pumpkin bread) -- but I haven't carved or painted or even decorated with a pumpkin. That's almost as unheard of as...

I haven't finished my Halloween costume yet. I've known what I wanted to be for a while now and I have 2 of the most important pieces of the costume, but it just hasn't been put together yet. I have until Wednesday night! Eeep.

I went to six S-I-X concerts this month. Get ready for a fun update post on that.

My Christmas list is complete because I only want 1 thing. Well other than money and jewelry and scarves and boot socks and chapstick and books. I want a record player and speakers. The whole setup.

I saw Argo last week and even though I might be biased because Ben Affleck is my number one absolute biggest celebrity crush ever -- it's amazing. I highly recommend it. I've even agreed to see Pitch Perfect with my sister if she'll see Argo with me.



Have you gotten your pumpkin fix? And dressed up for Halloween? Have you been to any good concerts this month? What do you want for Christmas? And...have you seen Argo? Did you love it?

Tell me all about it.

Life Decisions: temporarily decided

Three weeks ago, I wrote about a decision that was troubling me (here). 

I've been in Oxford for 6 years now, and at 24, it is the only place I've lived and worked as an adult. My decision was between moving somewhere else (most likely Dallas) to experience more of what's out there -- or stay here for two more years (tops) and take advantage of the wonderful perks I have at my job by getting a Masters degree for free.

The lovely thing about decisions is the grey area. You very rarely only have two options. And I've decided on option 3.



I'm not going to get my MBA. Some of you might think I'm crazy for passing up a FREE masters level education, and I might regret it later, but it's just not what I want to do right now. I can always get that MBA down the road. Maybe even next year. Maybe for free...maybe not. I just know that's not where my heart is right now.

I'm not moving to Dallas, either. Not right away, anyway. I'll look at job prospects more closely, but I'm not making any moves this year.


You might be thinking (especially if you're that anonymous commenter), 
"So you're just gonna stay and waste your life away in Oxford?"

Not exactly. And watch it. Oxford is a lovely town.


The real thing that was troubling me was that I've never done anything. I've never gone anywhere. I've just been right here. Also troubling me? The amazing perks at my job that I wasn't taking advantage of.

I've found away to fix both of those things.

The University has a program called Academic Traveler. Its purpose is to promote lifelong learning and new and exciting experiences for people of all ages. The program is marketed toward working adults, not college students.

In March 2013, Academic Traveler is taking a group of people to Tuscany for a culinary experience. Olive oil tastings, wine tastings, and cooking classes in TUSCANY. That's the chance of a lifetime -- and it's right up my alley.

Plus, the expense of the trip can be payroll deducted...over 24 pay periods. I can pay for the trip over an entire year. How's that for a job perk?

3-3 & 4-3

Last Saturday, we played the Aggies from Texas A&M. We lost.

Also, it was 40 degrees and raining. So enough about that.



This weekend, we played the Auburn Tigers for our Homecoming game. It was 80 degrees and sunny. And we won. That's much more my style.



Unfortunately, I left the stadium right before the 4th quarter to meet some friends in the Grove so I had to settle for watching the most exciting bits on TV.




This weekend we get a break and we'll be back on the 27th to beat up on Arkansas in Fayetteville LITTLE ROCK. Little Rock has a Taco Bueno. I think I'll go. Who's coming with me?


How's your team doing?

Friday Confessions

My first Friday confession has to be that I've been a total blog slacker for the past week. I've had a lot to write about. The hipster concert where my phone got stolen, what I've decided to do concerning MBA v moving, a few dates I've been on...but no. It's been over a week since my last post. 

I think not having a phone for over 2 days was liberating and I wanted to shut off from blogland, too. It was a nice refresher, but I'm glad to be back! (I'll have all the aforementioned stories up next week.)

link up


Since my phone got stolen, I'm using my old iPhone 3G and it is MISERABLE. That's a first world problem if I've ever seen it, but I can't help it. I can't even download the Twitter and Facebook apps because the iOS is so outdated. I have no front camera and the back camera has no flash and no zoom. I HAVE NO INSTAGRAM. And just as I was really getting into October's photo a day challenge. It's depressing how spoiled I am. I'd rather not have a phone at all. But then my mother would kill me.


I'm leaving work at noon today even though I don't have to leave town until 4 or 4:30. I want to go shopping and have lunch with friends and take a nap. In that order.


It's Friday and I have absolutely no idea what I'm wearing to the game tomorrow morning. (Kickoff is at 11:20.) I had planned all my outfits before the season even started...but then Oxford had to go and get warm again so tomorrow's outfit isn't gonna work. Anyone have a red dress I can borrow?


That's all for today. I'll probably have a few more confessions after the weekend. If you know what I mean.

Potato Soup: Perfected

After making about 20 batches over the past year, I have finally perfected my potato soup.

I first made this soup last fall, using the Panera bread recipe (here). I was looking for a recipe that wasn't a "baked" or "loaded" potato soup. I wanted something creamier.

Each time I made the soup, I tried something new. And now, I have the perfect recipe. I made a double batch last night so I have plenty to eat for the rest of the week/weekend. I'll even consider sharing some.




It's chunky and creamy and spicy and delicious. And easy. Very easy.




Ingredients:

4 cups chicken broth
4 1/2 cups potatoes, peeled & cubed
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 celery stalk, diced
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, cut into chunks

Directions:

Boil potatoes, onion, celery, and seasonings in chicken broth on med-high until tender. (Approx 10-15 mins)

Remove a few scoops of potatoes & set aside. (If you like it chunky.)

With a potato masher, smash most of the remaining potatoes to thicken the soup.

Turn to low and add the cream cheese. 

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted.

Add in the potatoes you removed earlier.

Serve with french bread.




I made changes to the original recipe to make it my own. And to make it better. The celery adds a twist that was definitely missing. I also use more potatoes so that it has more texture. I've decided to go with less cayenne pepper than the original recipe because it was too spicy for me. It's still plenty spicy with the smaller amount. I remove potatoes before I use the masher because I want to guarantee some chunkiness.

For a few batches, I used less cream cheese and it's still delicious. But for my perfect recipe, a whole block of cream cheese works best.

And, as is always the case with soups -- it's much better the next day. It thickens up over night.



It's perfect soup weather here in Mississippi this week. Is it soup weather where you are? Try this recipe and let me know what you think!

Friend

Friend: [frend]
noun

1. a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard

2. a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter

3. a person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not hostile



via


I have been blessed with amazing friends. I have a small group of really great friends that are my lifeline. Without them, I wouldn't be the person that I am today.

I tell them everything, even things that I don't like to admit to myself. They do the same. I ask for their advice and I know they'll be honest with me. They do the same. I lift them up and support them. They do the same.

Friendship is a mutual thing. While friendliness does not have to be, friendship is always mutual. What good is having someone to confide in when they won't confide in you? What good is being supportive of someone when they aren't supportive of you?

If there's a person in my life whose friendship seems like a one-way street, I'll never stop being friendly to them...but I won't consider them a friend. My "friends list" is full of people who deserve to be there. I don't have room for fake friends.


All you blogger friends out there, just because I may have never met you or heard your voice, that doesn't make you fake friends. Rest assured, you have a very cherished spot on that list, as well.

3-2

My Saturday night was spent in the second best place to watch an Ole Miss football game in Oxford -- The Library. 



The 15 seconds that we led Alabama was an absolute madhouse. The other 59 minutes and 45 seconds were fun, too. There were cheers with friends, beers with friends, kickoff shots with friends. Spontaneous outbursts of Hotty Toddy, a few Beat Bama's, and a From Dixie with Love. 

I truly believe that being an Ole Miss fan is different than being a fan of any other team. Granted, we do have our fair weather fans -- but most Rebels that I know are die hards. When we go up against Bama, we have hope that we'll win. And when we don't, we're just as excited about how good we played. And how much fun we had. And that's really all you need, right?



Hotty Toddy Rebels!


This Saturday, the newest member of the SEC, Texas A&M travels to our town to take on our Rebs. I've been told that we won't be big fans of the Aggies. Hopefully we'll show them how it's done in Oxford for their first visit. With lots of drinks, good food, class, and a nice ass whoopin'.


We're gonna beat the hell outta you! Hotty Toddy! Gosh A'mighty! Who the hell are we? Hey! Flim Flam! Bim Bam!

OLE MISS, BY DAMN.

If You Really Knew Me..

I love the new blog post trend of "I believe in..." but I haven't even done the "If You Really Knew Me" post so I figured I'd get that one out of the way first. 

Here we go.


If you really knew me...

...you'd know that I don't suffer from OCD. I actually enjoy it.

...you'd know not to play country music around me unless you plan to let me choose the songs. And you'd know that I'm probably going to pick either "Any Man of Mine" by Shania Twain or "Sold" by John Michael Montgomery.

...you'd know that I'm honest. Sometimes too honest.

...you'd know that until this month, I never dried, rolled, or hair sprayed my hair. I've been trying it out lately and I kinda like it. You still won't get me to wear lipstick, though.

...you'd know that I have a "type" when it comes to guys I have crushes on...but it never carries over into the guys I actually date.

...you'd know that I didn't start cooking until about a year ago. You couldn't guess that by trying any of my food, though. I'm a pro!

...you'd know that my real happy place is not the Library or the Grove, but inside my car, alone, with the windows down and the music up.

...you'd know that I very rarely like a person as soon as I meet them.

...you'd know that dropping $200 on clothes isn't a big deal to me. Because I don't spend $200 on a pair of jeans or shoes. Recently I spent $200 and walked away with 5 dresses, 2 shirts, 3 pairs of jeans, and a pair of shoes. I love Forever21.

...you'd know that I cry when I'm mad or touched. Never when I'm sad or upset.

...you'd know that I won't go out of my way to make anyone like me. But I'll go out of my way to help someone...even if I don't like them.



Do you really know me?

Life Decisions

Two of my best friends are moving to Dallas in a month. Brad is moving to start a new job with his family business. Toni is moving to have a new experience.

And I'm staying right here. For now.

I went with Brad and Toni to Dallas last week to help them look at apartments (and find good bars).




Dallas has been one of my favorite cities since I first visited there when I was 8 years old. I planned to move there after college.

When I graduated, I applied for a few jobs. I got phone interviews. I made it to second and third rounds. And then I was told, "you don't have enough job experience". So, a job opened up in Oxford and I stayed.

I work for the University, so I can take 2 classes per semester for free. FREE. The online MBA program just happens to be 2 years at 2 classes a semester. It starts this January.

My plan was to get an MBA for free. Or at least half free. That would put me staying in Oxford until January 2014 at the earliest, 2015 if I stay here for the full 2 years. (I would still complete my MBA if I left -- just wouldn't get the second year free.)


But after visiting and being in Dallas as an adult -- do I want to stay in small town Oxford, MS 30 miles from where I grew up and the only other place I've lived after high school for 1-2 more years? Or am I just wasting 1-2 of my prime years that I could be spending in big city Dallas, TX?

Is a free MBA worth it? Do I need an MBA at all?

Oxford is a lovely town and will always hold my heart -- but do I want to live here, in this college town, until I'm 27? Am I missing experiences that I should be having as a young adult?


I need advice.

3-1

The Ole Miss Rebels traveled to New Orleans to play Tulane this weekend.

I did not travel with them, as I was on a roadtrip of my own. More on that later.

I watched the game from Brad's river house in Biloxi.


The Rebels shut out Tulane with a 39-0 win, making us 3-1 so far this season. That's already one more win than we had last season!

Next week, we travel to Tuscaloosa to play the defending National Champions.



Even though we demolished Tulane, we still give our support to their team in such a hard time. Our players even had DW decals. Show your support to Tulane and Devon Walker by visiting this site. Read more about Devon's spinal injury here.

FIRST of all. I have the strangest dreams. I thought the one with Lindsay Lohan, Danny DeVito, and Rob Gronkowski would forever be the weirdest...until last night.

I was at a wedding. I was a regular smoker. I was about to leave to go overseas...to fight in the military. The bride's fingernails were painted orange and lime green. I was sitting next to another military guy who was giving me advice, but mostly we were talking about rap music. Eminem, Juvenile, and Lil Wayne to be exact. Justin Moore (from Ingram Hill) was a bridesmaid. There was a band at the ceremony. The drummer was a midget. And a girl. They didn't rent the church long enough so people started filing in for a church service before the wedding was over. I rode a school bus home. Kristen Wiig was the bus driver. There was a little girl who kept peeing her pants. Kristen Wiig also kept peeing her pants. I got dropped off at what appeared to be Uncle Phil's house from Fresh Prince. Then I woke up.

Any dream interpreters out there? You'd have a field day with me!



Now, to the actual substance of today's post. I pre-ordered this gem and it's out today. I can't stop listening.

Slow Cruel Hands of Time is my favorite after the first listen.

Get it now!



Actually, get all their albums. They're one of those bands that never disappoints.

I'll definitely be listening to a lot of them on my mini vacation/roadtrip that begins when I get off work today!!
