A little something today to get me in the mood for my plane ride to Paris this weekend! Je suis venu te dire que je m’en vais (“I came to tell you I’m leaving”) by Claude Monnet & Monica Nogueira from the album Hôtel Costes Volume 7, 2004.
A bit of bouncy chill to provide a dash of escapism, which I’d really like right now. Okay, yes, it’s gets pretty repetitive (much like the daily grind) – which is sort of annoying (also much like the daily grind). Good reminder of the need to shake things up from time to time… Take Me Away, the single, by Zero 7, 2013.
Despite the fact I’ve lived in Minnesota my entire life, the season’s first snowfall still comes as a surprise to me. Like, somehow, this year was going to be different. Well, as Monday’s weather will attest to, this isn’t going to be that year. So, I don my down jacket and snow boots (with sensibly rugged tread) and head off to work, listening to a bit of a chill in the air… Snowblind by Minus8 from the album Hotel Costés 6, 2003.
