Bloc Party...a bit boring maybe

If it can be broke then it can be fixed
If it can be fused then it can be split
It's all under control
If it can be lost then it can be won
If it can be touched then it can be turned
All you need is time

We promised the world we'd tame it, what were we hoping for?

A sense of purpose and a sense of skill
A sense of function but a disregard
We will not be the first, we won't
You said you were going to conquer new frontiers,
Go stick your bloody head in the jaws of the beast

If I've said this once I've said it a million times...I love Bloc Party and when I'm happy I listen to Bloc Party, when I'm sad I listen to Bloc Party, when I'm upset I listen to Bloc Party, when I'm eh...well you get the picture. They play in NYC this weekend, well next weekend and I'm going to see them...I can't wait - I love them LOL. I woke up early to get these tickets and this morning I woke up early again to get tickets to see The Bravery and Modest Mouse (this is another fav of mine.) I love concerts - the live music just makes me want to do the cockaroach dance LOL. (I'm so corny)

Onto non Bloc Party/concert news...I'm still sick. I have this cough that just won't budge and it's not a nice "I have a tickle in my throat" cough it's a hacking "OMG what does this girl have and is it contagious?" type cough. I had this patient the last 2 days who had the same cough (only worse) and everytime my patient coughed I'd cough right with him. Then it's hard for me to breath - it just feels like my lungs aren't expanding to full capacity. My dad has been smoking around me my entire life (then I smoked for a few years myself thinking it was cool) so who knows what shape my lungs are in. The doctor doesn't seem to be too worried but he's not the one who can't breath. I keep saying I'm going to find a new doctor but when your doctor is 2 blocks away from you it's hard leave.

I finally broke down and decided to leave Nextel. The service since the merge with Sprint is just horrible. It's like I'm paying not to have service. I see some people on the subway platform and they're chatting away on their phones and I look at my screen and it says No Service, it's so annoying. So I'm going with Verizon and (this is the exciting part) I got a Treo :-) I will now have internet access with me all the time! I can't wait until it comes in, it should be here next week sometime. I'm going to d/l my drug guide into it and then I can get rid of my handheld and carry less. I made Kelly get the same phone although he really has no use for it - I just wanted us to be twins...

Not much stitching has gone on, work, as always, has cut into my stitching time. I've also been playing Sims a lot too. I played all day yesterday. My sim just had another baby and her sim husband is working hard to get that next promotion to take care of the ever growing family so I've been busy. I have been itching to start something new. I don't know what it is about putting those first stitches on fabric that's so exciting...on my last stash shopping trip I bought fabric for a few pieces I want to stitch as well as a few new charts. One of the charts I kitted up while there since I've been eyeing it on someone else's blog (forget the blog so I can link it) and while at my not so LNS the Rosewood Manor trunkshow was there and the project was there framed so I couldn't resist! It's And a Forest Grew and it's HUGE! Well it's huge in my book, I'm pretty sure there are bigger out there.

Ok I'm off to eat lunch - I've been trying to lose weight and so far have managed to lose 8 lbs. I guess it really does matter whether you're eating in moderation and walk a little more. I want to start working out soon (I did for about 2 weeks then got sick) so the weight loss is actually a great push towards doing more.

Oh before I leave...I still have one more spot for my PIF if anyone is interested. I have the others in envelopes already I just have to stop procrastinating and mail them out. Just drop me an email if you're interested. And thanks to those who left me comments on my frame...I still haven't hung it up on the wall and really should do that soon. Okies TTYL!

Hey Mercy!!
HOpe you have a great weekend. The weather while chilly is lovely. I am trying to make the same decision about my cell phone - I'm with Sprint and I hate it. I'm just not good with change. - Jamie
