work zombie

Oh... please enjoy this piece. I give you Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman playing Handel's Passacaglia, as arranged for violin and viola by Halvorsen. This always calms the savage beast, forces me to breathe... and leaves me with the feeling that my life has just been saved.

For my friend Coco...

If you're a Zombie do you eat people for lunch at work? Cheers!!

Anndi said...

Matt-man: Since zombies eat brains... no, I have to pack a lunch.

hang in there. Alternate universes such as this generally have a short lifespan so you will soon be kicked back into normal existence.

Very la-di-da upscale relaxation therapy...
unfortunately strings make me weepy.

I'm more of a Cranberries kind-O-guy...

Hello Libra Friend!

Just stopped by to say HI and see how you're doing.


...my hours at work keep increasing as the holidays approach. All this PRE-holiday stuff. Damn...in December, I just figured out that I'll be working 52 hours a week, the last two weeks before Christmas!!!

I've been also writing a lot lately and working on my other blog. I feel a sudden burst of creativity these past few weeks.

As always...sharing "good energy" with ya!

Have a FABU Wednesday, Anndi

Anndi said...

Charles: I get to see my honey in a week. Things should be better then. Thanks!

Mr Coppens, sir: Cranberries work... I've got protective gear so I should be ok.

Ron: Of course you would be buried in work at the same time I am... we are twins after all ;)
Hopefully things will slow down soon and I might be able to get back to some writing, or at least reading blogs.

Missed you buddy!


Kay said...

Feel better Anndi!

(I linked to you btw, because you are awesome like that)

And thank you for the music :)

Brian o vretanos said...

I hope you emerge soon.

I'd never heard that arrangement before, and I enjoyed it immensely - thankyou. Handel's music lifts my spirits like no other...

Mike Golch said...

I once heard it said that music is good for the soul.this being the case we alll have different music to calm us.Hammered Dulcimer is one such venue that does it for me.

If the following is true in your alternate universe:

1. CAKE is perfectly acceptible at every meal.

2. The Dodgers, Raiders, Lakers, Irish, and Duke are always champions. Oh...the Seahawks are really good too.

3. Taylor Hicks is a grammy award winner.

4. Dancing is on tv every night.

Can you give me directions?

Jeff B said...

Wow can I relate. Had to take a few days off from blogging just to settle my world. Hope to see you soon.

Why won't it play??? :<(

Anndi said...

Kay: Thank you sweetie. You're a doll!
I'm so glad to have found you out there in the bloggosphere.
Glad you liked the music.

Brian: So do I, my friend.
It's funny because I was listening to the piece and decided to post it and immediately thought: Brian will like this. Handel is inspiring.

Mike: Thanks for stopping by. Music does indeed soothe the soul.

1. Of course!
2. Add the Habs and the Montreal Alouettes and you have a deal.
3. no brainer!
4. WOOOOOOOO! (Mary Murphy was a guest judge on SYTYCD Canada this week)

Just click your heels together and do a sexy mambo hip swivel. ;)

Jeff: Nice to see you managed to come back dear.

Coop: Hi buddy! Maybe if you refresh the page? It works on my end.

I wish I could take the time to listen right now; I'm about to jump on the hamster wheel. I'll be back.
