I.T. Kiki

I’m going round my dad’s today to give him a computer lesson.  This should be quite interesting as my dad is 79 years old.  Bless him though for trying to get with the program.  I started an email account for him as well.  Welcome to the internets daddy. 😉

The hijacking laptops continues.  At the mo I’m on my cousin Nima’s roomate’s.  Woot.

I just got around to listening to that Hayze Podcast #32 that I had posted recently.  Good stuff.  Give it a listen if you haven’t already. 🙂

London Kiki

I should have just gone to London the second I came back from my Christmas holiday.  This week seems a little pointless.  I can’t really do anything productive on the work front as I’m leaving next week so instead I’m back to sitting in my flat waiting to leave.  Hmmm.  Complain much?  LOL.  I’m prolly just crabby cuz it’s cold outside and I don’t have anything to do but be stuck indoors.  I’m trying to bring back my positive outlook for 2010 so I have decided to only be grumpy while I write this post and then snap out of it. 😉

Au Revoir 2009

I’m making an executive decision and doing my end of year top tracks today.  I’m going to Philly today and then I’m not taking my laptop with me to NY tomorrow so that really leaves me no time to write.

Here is my repeat of end of year disclaimers…

My list is always going to be kinda bogus.  LOL.  The tunes I blogged about towards the end of the year are still fresh in my mind and therefore get more attention than the ones I blogged about back in the beginning of the year cuz I’m not sick of hearing them yet.  The list is in no particular order.  I have been told that I have strange taste in some dnb track so my list means absolutely nothing.  It’s just a compilation of songs that I personally liked over 2009.  We also must take into account that the latter half of the year I wasn’t as diligent about writing tracks down due to the loss of my job so I’m not as up on new tunes as I used to be.  This list is just of tracks that I would have been happy to keep on my ipod for the past 365 days.

End of disclaimer. 😉

I mulled over my list for ages.  I started out with 70 tracks and could only cut it down to 30 this year.  LOL.  I really tried to narrow it to at least 20 but I really like all the tracks on the list, so 30 it is.  Eek.  This will be a long post. 🙂

Hibernation Kiki

I had a pretty nice weekend.  The cold is settling and I’m starting to feel the hibernation mode kicking in.  I’m starting to get excited about my trips coming up this year, Minneapolis, New Jersey, New York and London.  Being unemployed gives me ample amount of time so if I have the money I have no excuse but to dip out.

Old Lady Kiki

I keep trying to come up with more ways to say that I’m geriatric.  There’s not really that many ways!  My weekend was filled with good food, good friends and lot of napping/lazing around the apartment.

Friday I went to lunch with Jesus and Shannon at this really cute place in Lincoln Square.  Really good food.  Friday night… I really did have good intentions.   I was going to gallivant across town and once my eyes started closing I admitted defeat and told my friends I would be staying home.  I think my disappointment is not actually with becoming geriatric, it’s the lack of disappointment with the transformation.  LOL.  I don’t mind staying home!  If you told me all I could do for the rest of my life starting today was to be surrounded by the company of my friends and eat amazing meals I wouldn’t even care.  I guess I didn’t think I would be hanging up my hat at 33.  And yes I’m aware that my bday is still 4 weeks away but I’m already 33 as far as I’m concerned.

I could continue with the rest of the weekend but it’s kind of the same deal so I’ll just do a quick summary.  Saturday, brunch with Ron and Rocko, loads of yummy breakfast items, good company, Small Bar with my dnb peeps, good beer, kicking it with Melissa.  Sunday, I stuffed my face at Daniela’s parents’ house to the point of feeling sick.  I couldn’t help it.  It was just too yummy.

Anyways, here we are, it’s Monday and surprisingly it seemed like everyone did most of their bbqing over the weekend.  The highlight of my Monday is Pipeline coming to fix my laptop keyboard so I don’t have to use the external one anymore.  Woot.  Hopefully all you people that actually work will enjoy your day off. 😉

New Kiki

It’s awesome when you wake up and you feel inspired and ready to attack the day.  I feel that way today even though it’s gray, gloomy and rainy. 🙂

Tunes:
Quantrek & Heavy 1 – Independent (track is in Heavy 1 player)
I have been digging this tune ever since I heard it on Soultec’s July Studio mix.  I couldn’t find the artists cuz it was spelled wrong in the tracklist.  Thanks to Dvus and the Bassdrive Chat posse for filling me in.  Love it.  Big up Japan.
