As you can see, I've been busy tidying up the place today. Whymommy emailed me to let me know the crash and burn that was the loading of my blog. As much as I love the pink and green flowers by Zoot, I decided to ditch them and see if things started loading better. I think I had just tinkered with her perfectly good template way too much. Always feel free to let me know if the blog is loading like a tractor pulling pigs through the mud.

I have no idea what that meant.

Anyway, that's left me with an unfinished post and too much to say this late at night. Luckily, Kami tagged me for the 7 things I'm listening to meme. It's been a long time since I've done a meme, and I'm always hip to talk about music.

The only problem is that she said, "besides Crowded House," and that limits it greatly this week.

1. Wilco. The newest. Love it.
2. Some Irish chick that The Dude gave me. I'll have to pop it out of the player in the Jeep and find out what her name is because it's a lovely disk.
3. Really bad Bach. Almost everyday. It's going to get better, but GAH! I really hate listening to Bach before people know how to play it. That is possibly also why I hate to learn it myself.
4. Liam Finn. There's a review in the works of this amazing guy. So incredibly good.
5. Guy playing classical guitar. More specifically Carcassi. It's also lovely.
6. The Dude's song about Raleigh. We love you Raleigh. We have to sing it next week, and I've got to learn it. Make up harmony and stuff. So I've listened to that a lot. Our trees are grand.
7. Students' compositions. It the year of the waltz. I love it when they write.

Alright, so it's not exactly a traditional list, but that's it. What I've been listening to lately. Can I tag Molly? Are you up to play a little?

The Irish chick's name is Cara Best. And if you want the name of The Dude, email me and I'll send it to you.

----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jen DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 12:16:00 AM EDT much better :) every time i loaded your page it crashed my explorer, this one works like a charm. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous slouchy DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 5:48:00 AM EDT Good stuff you're listening to, except Bach played badly. I love Bach (who doesn't), and listening to a massacre of his music would make me want to weep.

Your site loads very quickly now. I've just been told my site is a nightmare to load. Do you find it so? ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Bubblewench DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 7:49:00 AM EDT Thank you thank you thank you for redoing your page. Now I can take you off my list of 'Blogs I can't read at home cause they freeze my computer which in turn pisses me off'.

And, Ihave to ask, The Dude? Did I miss something? As I am in process of jacking up my iPod, always looking for new stuff. Dude sounds like he may be iPod worthy. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Marty, a.k.a. canape DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 8:48:00 AM EDT Hi Jen! I'm so glad to see you "out and about" again ;) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Anth DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 11:33:00 AM EDT Wow that really does load a lot faster. Ha ha ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Paige Jennifer DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 1:37:00 PM EDT I'm going against the grain. Your swirlies made me smile each and every time I loaded your page. The rainbow on a gray day, so to speak. And yes it loaded slowly. And someones my iExlplorer said it wasn't responding. It just took a little more time. But in my personal opinion was it was worth it. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Amy DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 2:06:00 PM EDT Definitely loads faster. Now we need to convince KD to fix hers... ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children DATE:Friday, September 7, 2007 at 2:08:00 PM EDT Yep, it loaded right up.

The people who were having trouble viewing it in explorer, 1) need to get Firefox and 2) have a cookie issue with your site. That's what a computer-savvy person told me when everyone was having trouble viewing my site. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Ally DATE:Tuesday, September 11, 2007 at 1:19:00 AM EDT Whoa, this page loaded super fast! Love the list. I wish I lived wiht someone (besides me) who played guitar. ----- --------
