There's no use crying over spilled milk

But there is use crying over spilled coffee because it contains life-sustaining caffeine. Which I did. Spill my coffee that is. I didn't actually cry, although I wanted to.
It missed my keyboard, thank goodness.

April has been a crazy month. It isn't even over but I'm ready to kick it out of my apartment with all of it's crap in a box.  You know, "to the left, to the left" and all that jazz. I'm finding the best way to deal is with some dreamy jams from the past.  I can be found listening to these tunes on repeat until May.

The entire Aim and Ignite album from FUN. This was pre-Some Nights, and if you haven't heard it before then SHAME ON YOU.

Janet Jackson, for some strange reason. See: All for you, Together Again,

Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue Album.

Doesn't look like much, but the albums will keep you busy for awhile.

Friday link round up

Have you ever noticed how everything hurts more in the morning? I had to get some blood drawn and it was just awful. Usually I have no problem with needles but something about getting stuck in the arm before I've even had my coffee felt particularly cruel.  And the fact that when I finally got my hands on a mug, I dropped it on the ground. Sigh. This week is going down swinging.

I hope you're having a lovely, caffeinated, Friday. Some links to get you through the day:
