inspirational music for life’s (annoying) little moments 1.16

So I visited the dear mother-in-law not just this last weekend, but also the weekend before because a) it was her birthday and b) because Mother’s Day is this Sunday and we can’t make it back because my husband has an exam.  I don’t know why I all of a sudden became so generous, but I did.  And funny thing is: I don’t even regret it that much.  Because she was nice.  And almost decent.  I thought it was because she was finally happy to see us after we boycotted Christmas and all.  But that couldn’t be it because we’d withheld visits before and she was just as mean.  Then, because to the common person, med student = doctor, she asked me for advice on the findings from some test she’d had done because she was having abdominal pain.  So I read the report.  And found that they had given her an antidepressant to treat suspected irritable bowel syndrome.  Aha!  So that’s why she was sane and normal and almost nice.  Because she was finally taking the antidepressants she so badly needed!  Now if only she would keep taking them.  Then all would be well.  I just need to count on no one else figuring it out and telling her because she would immediately stop and sue the doctor for daring to think she has a mental illness.  But I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.

So, in honor of my mother-in-law’s better mood thanks to the magical pills, my song for this week is: Jump 5 - Walkin’ on Sunshine.

Please send song submissions (and not spam, you damn spammers) to me here.

    Haha. I have to agree there. But I needed an annoying happy song to describe the change in my mother-in-law. :P
    I too was quite disappointed in Blink. Liked Freakonomics. And haven’t finished The God Delusion yet. Just picked up The Unbearable Lightness of Being and haven’t been able to put it down yet.


The patient is a 20-something-year-old MD/PhD student with a history of extensive schooling now presenting with frustration at her current lack of progress consistent with being stuck in a rut.



Darth Vader had borderline personality disorder.  If only he had gotten psychotherapy.


Rumor is that they’re planning to get rid of the Hummer H2 because of slow sales.  Now if only they would get rid of all Hummers.  And SUVs and big trucks.


This lame study showed that if your ring finger is longer than your index finger, then you’re good at math and if your ring finger is shorter than your index finger, then you’re good at reading.  Um, right.  My index finger is longer than my ring finger and I’m better at math than I am with reading (though I’m way better at reading than most people anyway).  So there.  Such BS.
