Green Room - Week 7 - Day 4

"and when push comes to shove, I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love"

I'm listening to the soundtrack of "Hamilton" for the first time this morning - and that line reminded me of Idol!

If you haven't listened to it yet ( perhaps you were under the same rock as I have been - in which case, it's MY rock, go find your own!!) go do it now! Or rather, make sure you've submitted your entry first: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/887291.html and then read ahead with what has been submitted so far (tonight is the deadline to get those entries in!) and then go find a copy of the soundtrack.


***

What have YOU recently discovered? Books? Music? Perhaps one of the many traps I have placed around your home?

I discovered that I have a free evening and do not have to be at a school event after all! That's my discovery!
Guess, since it's a decent-enough weather night, (for Ohio), I can go out to dinner w my sister(s)!

I just discovered the soundtrack to "Hamilton," too. My BiL is a teacher, and he's using it to build a history lesson.

I'm looking forward to "discovering" the new Bowie album tonight. We're having a listening party, but it's been sitting here, still in the shrink wrap, since WEDNESDAY. Gah!

This is Gary

Gary keeps forgetting that he's been meaning to mock this meme for months now

Gary is only getting to it now, in a comment.

Don't be Like Gary

No one could ever be like you, Gary.

Hell, no one in their right mind would ever *WANT* to be like you, Gary!

yes, i'm begging to get kicked; what's your point?

Heyyyyyyyyyyyyy... were you trawling my journal yesterday? And THAT's what you walked away with? :O

There were good Hozier links on there, and BunDucksLiga videos, and a S.F. Chronicle article on the BistroBot (PB&J Bot, really)!

Or are you just a Hamilton geek like my daughter?

I just looked and it seems you didn't like it.

So no, I didn't get it from you. If I had, I probably wouldn't have checked it out! (and enjoyed/enjoying since I'm not done yet) :)

Since I'm anonymous here, I'll tell you all something I've only told my wife and boss.

What I discovered this week, on Tuesday, is that I have diabetes ("probably type 2"). This came as a total shock, but it explains a sort of cascade of health issues I've had in the last two months. I'm going to get a second blood test today just so my doctor can make sure, but I'm already schedule for a meeting with a nutritionist next week.

While this runs in my family (my dad's dad had it) its also because of a combination of factors, including my weight, my stress level and my struggles with depression. This is a long way of saying I should have taken better care of myself these last 48 years.

I'm going through various stages of denial, shame (because I should have acted) and anger over this, though I know I'm still going to be able to live a long and full life. Sigh.

That's really rough. I'm sorry! I hope dealing with it proves to be far less painful than you fear, and you feel better than ever soon.

HAMILTON. I've been obsessed with this musical since it first premiered on NPR's First Listen back in late September. I'm a hopeless dork about it, even bought the Hamilton biography. I cannot say enough great things about it.

I just discovered that there was more to the Mistborn world than the original trilogy. WOOHOO!
