Practice makes almost perfect depending on the night, the mood, the methods, the mood, the atmosphere, the mood, and did I mention the mood?  :java:
So that explains why you keep at it with Kianna you are still trying to get it right.

So, I think of an escaped elephant on a unicycle when you say "Paradise":

I suspect she means that, as I usually propose metal, Cold Play is not really a likely choice.

We strive to surprise!

Yes, something like that! But then again, I have a rather diverse taste in music too :winks:

It's like 'finding your own kind' through music - these elephants.

Your musical tastes are much broader than mine.  Undergraduate friends from the early 2010's used to have Cold Play on all of the time.  Funny how music sticks where lots of other stuff doesn't.

How about this "paradise" reference?

"A nameless city in an distant sea
White as the changing walls of faerie
Thronged with much people clad in ancient guise
I no am fain to set before your eyes
There, leave the clear green water and the quays,
And pass betwixt its marble palaces
Until ye come unto the chiefest square
A bubling conduit is set midmost there"

Oh, my seething brain!  Definitely feeling  :ny-fathertime: tonight.

William Morris, The Earthly Paradise.

Time to start patching the systems at work.  Hopefully, see you all in the morning.

A coffee or two and a mocha or three,
A cat on my shoulder and a cat on my knees
a good stack of books so tall it might slip
A computer in reach of my quick fingertips
A soft fluffy pillow keeps my backside content
And a huge sturdy blanket makes a wonderful tent
I and my coffee and my felines inside
Surfing the net, this is our paradise.

If work was easy and fun, we'd call it vacation instead of work.
