I don't know why, but the soundtrack to the first two seasons of House, M.D. really ramps me up for warmer weather and puts me in a good mood. The nearest I can figure, I started watching House while in my penultimate semester of college, during the spring and summer of 2006. I was at a point in my life when I was really discovering who I was and what I stood for; in my experience, those pivotal points in a person's life are more than reflected in the music they listen to. I remember riding my geeky ten speed to campus; sitting out on the back porch of our much-too-expensive rental property, drinking beer and watching a group of long-haired hippies play hackeysack; burning Nag Champa to cover up the smell of my roommate's cigarette smoking. And through it all, a steady soundtrack of House-related music spun on all my mix CDs, my iPod, and my computer. Here are links to some of my favourites:

"Feelin' Alright" - Joe Cocker
"Got To Be More Careful" - Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen
"Stranger In A Strange Land" - Leon Russell
"Honky Tonk Women" - Taj Mahal
"Love and Happiness" - Al Green

It's been a very laid-back, uncluttered kind of weekend. Yesterday I went to a baby shower for a co-worker. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous the last couple of days and all of the flowering trees are in full bloom, planting bright shocks of colour in every direction. Today I'm finishing some chores around the apartment, going to a block party, and stopping by the office for a bit to do some lesson planning. I have every hope that this week will be much better than last week. I guess coming at it with a positive attitude is half the fight.
