Album cover meme and assorted news

A few people did this make-your-own-album-cover meme a while back, but since it's a public holiday today and I'm home, and glitterboy1 did it, I had a go.

The instructions were:

  1. Go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
    The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
  2. Then go to: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
    The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
  3. And lastly, go to: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
    The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Actually, that last link turns up some beautiful photos.



[Edit] Apparently there's a variation where you do step 1 15 times to get a tracklist. Collapse )

Shilparamam, incidentally, is a village in India, and the album title is from "All my possessions for a moment in time", apparently said by Elizabeth I.

In other news, my ankles and feet are no longer swollen, though it took a couple of days longer than it should have because of the extreme and sickening heat in the office at work. I am enormously relieved. It's a beautiful day today, but also cooler which is lovely (and useful because I need to clean the place before I go away; sigh).

Today I bought an umbrella that looks like banana leaves and which I shall use as a literal umbrella--little shadow--in the sun. :-)

Oh and this looks like a good price for Doctor Who fob watches. I am tempted but so far resisting.
