... and the only cure is-- Christmas music!

It's that time of year, and I find myself woefully lacking in the appropriate tunes! I'm not going to subject [ profile] nalroth to endless rounds of 'A Very Rosie (as in, O'Donnell) Christmas', and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, though badass, also just doesn't have the right tone. I love me some ol' fashioned carols, and the newer stuff-- which is where you guys come in! What songs/CDs can you recommend?

Also, quick update on the interview last Friday-- I was nervous. No, I mean, really, really nervous. Like, so nervous at one point in time the director asked me "So, what are you like when you're not nervous?" *head-desk* But, he still seemed rather interested in me, was absolutely delighted that I'd spent my off-time working on picking up some 1337 web developing skillz, and spent a large amount of time talking about the benefits of working there-- from Metro subsidies to lectures every Friday that he not only doesn't mind us taking time off of work to attend, but "encourages us". After spending an hour and a half with him I scooted next door to talk to the project assistant who was very sweet and closer to my age, and with whom I was much more relaxed. We chatted for a while, and I think she got a much better perspective of who I am, really (y'know, when I'm not nervous), and hopefully she can fill him in. The only downside is it's a 3 person group, and one person was out sick, so now I'm playing e-mail tag with her trying to arrange a time for us to meet-- which, I think, is what the director is waiting for before he contacts me again.

So.... I didn't get kicked out, and I didn't get a job offer-- onto the crossing of fingers, toes, arms, legs, eyeballs, and any other body part that can be crossed!

There are a few things in life that never fail to put me in the silliest of instantly-happy moods. The warm air of impending spring on my bare arms, as I finally get to don both tanktop and flipflops (but never shorts-- oh, no. Never shorts.) Cuddling with [ profile] nalroth on our bed, with all the shades pulled open and all the windows thrown open, letting the golden light of late afternoon and the dusk chorus of returning wildlife float over us. And, most importantly, music.

So, without further adieu-- [ profile] skkyechan's list of Music That Makes Me Giggly-Happy (at least today):
"The Bad Touch", The Bloodhound Gang, C'mon-- when is this not the perfect song?
"I Wanna Love You", Akon , Makes me think of dancing with [ profile] nalroth, even though the lyrics are a little off.
"Short Skirt/Long Jacket", Cake, Oh yeah. Cake is awesome. *forks the horns*
"The Remedy (I Won't Worry)", Jason Mraz, It's impossible not to be infected by this carefree cheerfulness!
"Since You've Been Gone", Kelly Clarkson, A staple since a certain Ex-From-Hell *cough-cough*.
"Can't Stop", "Under the Bridge", "Dani California" and "Snow (Hey-Oh)", Red Hot Chili Peppers, Quintessential California-- whenever I hear just about any song, I can almost smell the ocean, and see the golden hills and blue-gold spread of the great Pacific.
"To the Moon and Back", "I Want You", "Break Me, Shake Me", by Savage Garden, Because at heart I'm totally still in middle school. :P

Yeah, I pretty much had these set on 'loop, shuffle, repeat' all afternoon. :)
