Silent Spring

What a dull time... Nothing seems to be happening at all. Christmas was nice, much nicer that last year. New Years Eve was it's usual non-event. My friends page seems to have gone silent, as has Facebook. My phone has been silent all day, which made me a little sad. Yesterday (as in New Years Eve) was complete hell for several hours, with lots of...nasty stuff happening, leaving me feeling worthless and contemplating running away from it all somehow. To add disability to misery, I also managed to lose about 80% of hearing in my right ear. This is annoying enough in itself, but it comes coupled with a nasty feeling of pressure and a constant weird little noise that makes me rather grouchy for the first couple of days. I also got hung-up on on the phone. Took me a while to realise it, but that was a definite hanging-up of the polite kind. I know that it's happened to me before, but I don't remember where or when anymore. Anyway, that left me feeling naff and worthless, so we were back to square one.

On a more positive note, Duskdrops' repertoire has increased. I've taught myself to play quite a large bit of Led Zeppelin's Over the Hills and Far Away (the beginning bit! Be impressed), and also we've written a new song, My Love is Leaving. Goodness only know when Claire wrote the lyrics, I just picked them from the folder of "Finished Lyrics without tunes" and let it sing itself to me. I think that it's one of our best songs so far, but then again, I always think that. Seriously, though, it's the first song that we've used the full power of our new studio on. Overdubs, new effects, lots of harmonies....oh, and me playing a bassline with my guitar ^^. On the subject of guitars, Claire's doing really well now. I bought her a classical guitar for Christmas, and she's really, seriously making some awesome progress!

Now. Back to my original subject. Boredom. Nothing much is happening. I spent a large chunk of the last couple of days collecting Negima fanart from the Internet, and a good hour and a half today neatly arranging it. I also spent quite a long time on FFnet, a site that I never thought that I'd visit again. I went in search of NegiNodoka fics, but found a lot of KonoSetsu instead. Romance is love =^_^=

Yeah. Feeling a bit better now. Still a little hurt over...well, it's not prudent to go wild in a public entry, right? Suffice to say, I was a little hurt to be "ignored" today. Speech marks 'cos I have no evidence that an attempt to communicate wasn't made, but even so, it hurts.
