Getting Over a Cold

So, I have had this nasty congestion thing for about a week now. It's been rather obnoxious, since it has deprived me of my voice for the last three days, and without a voice I'm not much use to anybody. But I did stay home from work yesterday and compiled 5 CD's worth of Christmas music for my store, and that is no small achievement. I stole all of it off the Internet, and was pleased to find a wealth of music that is not typical holiday fare... and I tossed in most of Sufjan Stevens Christmas compilation from last year for good measure. I've got Bing Crosby, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, The Ronettes, Darlene Love, Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans, Nat King Cole, Shane MacGowan and the Pogues, Dion, U2, Mariah Carey, Death Cab for Cutie, the Crystals, Marlene Dietrich, and Mahalia Jackson. I hope the undergrads of Columbia can handle it....

I don't have a newborn baby, or a fancy new house, or really any aspect of a life worth sharing with others, but I thought I might start a blog anyway. It seems to be what one is supposed to do these days. I don't really have time for it... so it won't be updated often, nor will it be much good. But here it is, for what it is worth.
