A Song A Day: Feb 26th – Long Long Journey + Dedication

26 02 2011

I don’t quite know why, but today I feel sleepier then I’ve felt in a while, maybe being out and about the past few days has caught up with me. There is good news in that I can see a damn sight better today (see what I did there?) I can comfortably keep my left eye open now, which is always nice to be able to do!

The Journey Ahead...

Hopefully, I’ve been clever (or lucky, whichever you prefer) with delivery times and that with the post. Tomorrow is shaping up to be a nice family day with Mum and Dad. I’ve got Tim Burtons version of Alice in Wonderland coming in the mail as a film rental, plus hopefully a darts game for the Nintendo Wii. That, combined with some microwavable popcorn (I love that stuff… is it just me, or does it the bag have a habit of getting stuck in the microwave?) means it should be a good day. I’ve also got Skate 3 coming as my other rental (I got a rather nice deal with LoveFilm… returning customer, read a code online which gave me 3 months free as a returning customer, but it said it was expired… tried it anyway et voila, so i’m making the most of it before my payday!)

Anyway, I’m going to keep things shorter today, and get into bed and crash out in front of the TV.. I’ll try and stay awake for Family Guy (I tend to watch it every night, irregardless of how many times i’ve seen each episode!) but it’s starting at 12-25am – I’m tempted to miss it – I could do with a PVR in my room! Oh… the good ol’ days when VCR’s prevailed (there’s potential for a nostalgic posting there, everybody loves a bit of nostalgia…right…?!) It’s just dawned on me that I’ve had a McDonalds twice in 3 days… Not sure whether to feel proud of that, or to feel shameful of it!

Today’s song is a dedication to my partner in blogging crime, Aditi. She’s beginning to struggle with the postaday challenge, which is something I’ve felt and I’m sure others reading this may well of felt. As fun as it is to do, It’s not always the simplest/easiest thing to do. Earlier today, Aditi said she’d like some inspiration and such like to get into a blogging mond again….so, Aditi, this song is for you. Long Long Journey by Enya.

Aditi has 2 great blogs: Twilight Readings and Adobe Passions and Creations. The latter is self explanatory, but the former, in Aditi’s own words…’My random MUSINGS, tonnes of SMILES, brilliant THOUGHTS, vibrant COLORS and lots of STYLE’ –

City lights shine on the harbour,
night has fallen down,
through the darkness
and the shadow
I will still go on.

Long, long journey
through the darkness,
long, long way to go;
but what are miles
across the ocean
to the heart that’s coming home?

Where the road
runs through the valley,
where the river flows,
I will follow every highway
to the place I know.

Long, long journey
through the darkness,
long, long way to go;
but what are miles
across the ocean
to the heart that’s coming home?

Long, long journey
out of nowhere,
long, long way to go;
but what are sighs
and what is sadness
to the heart that’s coming home?

Whilst we are talking about shoutouts… I’d like to give a virtual shoutout and list a couple of blogs I’ve been enjoying recently and have discovered since going down the postaday road! All of these are well worth checking out!

So yes, I urge you to check out the above blogs – they’re all fantastic. I’m sure there are many more I’ve missed out – but that early night is becoming less and less likely as 1am fast approaches! Take care and see you again tomorrow….
