Rough day

I spent most of today in a grump without knowing exactly why and then cried about fixing my resume though I ended up making progress on it. I think that saying 'got up on the wrong side of the bed' really fit me today, because it felt like all the stress and awful of the past few months just hit me. Thankfully my parents were patient and we talked and I feel better, also we put up and decorated the tree. That helped me to feel hopeful about looking forward but this time of year is being tough this year. I have a few gifts to send out but I'm not doing my cards as normal because I don't feel up to it, so I'm doing what I can. Life is tricky but there is hope.

Now for the December meme which is still open. Today's prompt comes from [personal profile] in_the_blue who requested: You're stranded on a desert island and can only bring thirteen pieces of media (assume you have something to watch/play them on, because I'm nice and it's a luxury desert island). What books/movies/CDs/whatever do you bring?

To begin with, I'm thankful that its thirteen though it will still be very hard to choose and I might cheat with DVD sets.

1-Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold, because it always gets me right in the feels and helps me feel like maybe I can handle what the world is tossing at me. I miss my full collection of Bujold but its currently in storage. So if I have to choose one, its this one for how often I reread it.

2-Poirot Mysteries with David Suchet, it doesn't matter which particular set of episodes, they always make me smile.

3-Newsies and I'm going to cheat here and say movie and soundtrack, because both bring back my faith in the human race.

4-The Narnia books-I can revisit them multiple times and they make me happy, also boxed set, it counts as one.

5-TaleSpin DVD set, they always make me laugh.

6-Paul Creswick's Robin Hood with the proper illustrations.

7-40 Years by the Dubliners, because it has everything I need in a CD.

8-Women and Country by Jakob Dylan because it lifts me up.

9-Black Books, complete set because again I keep going back to them and sometimes its fun to laugh at how messed up the world is.

10-Clutch of Constables by Ngaio Marsh-if possible I'd just take all her novels as I never tire of rereading them but this is my favorite.

Now its getting hard to pick and it really is coming down to books.

11-Mark Twain, as much of him as I can carry but must include; The Prince and the Pauper and Huck Finn.

12-Diana Wynne Jones and again so hard to pick but one of those sets of books that includes Conrad's Fate.

13-Last, oh last is so hard but Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Ask me tomorrow and it might be a different list and this is really hard to pick.
