As NaBloPoMo, and more importantly November, draws to a close I’m left to ponder all that has happened over the past month. Let’s see: there was vomit, runny noses, coughing, busted ear drums, ear pus, walk-in clinics, antibiotics, a filthy kitchen, a screaming night-time baby, headaches, Pre-school parent-teacher meetings, Christmas shopping, a Christmas parade, portraits, and a new Professor Layton game. And I still managed to get one blog post done every day, without once resorting to those bizarre prompts. Had I known what kind of month I was going to have, would I have decided to pick up the gauntlet? Probably not. I would have let life get in the way again. But, pick it up I did, and I’m so glad that I did. Because not only did it get me back into the blogging mind-set, it also served as a huge lesson to me on making me a priority sometimes. And it definitely served as a good distraction from all that Fuckvember has come to represent. And look at that, we’re almost rid of it for another year! Now it’s time relax and get swept up into Christmas.
Or is it?
I may have something cooking for the month of December. I may be insane. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, this seems as an appropriate time as any to watch this:
Do they make music videos this freaking awesome anymore? I don’t fucking think so! First Axl meets and falls in love with statuesque Stephanie Seymour who would be, if not for his all his fame and money, WAY OUT OF HIS LEAGUE. Then they get married! In a church! Then Slash, presumably out of respect for Jesus, removes himself from the church (which is in the middle of a desert) to play the devil’s music. For 2 minutes. Wedding reception! They’re so in love! Surely they will live happily ever after! Oh NO! The reception has been RAINED OUT. Everybody panic! And then, for no discernible reason, SHE SUDDENLY AND TRAGICALLY DIES(maybe pneumonia?). Look at Axl! Look at the PATHOS, people! LOOK AT IT! Interspersed throughout are the boys playing in a theatre with a full supporting orchestra. Slash jumps up on the grand piano at one point like a boss, it’s GLORIOUS. Seriously, this video made my day yesterday. Happy last day of November!
