Dead spots or not – I listen to a local station during my very short commute to the gym. The past week or so the static has been so bad I can’t always hear. Convinced it was the stupid entertainment center in my car (formerly known as a radio), I started fiddling around. Hmm. Other stations were not static-y, nor was Sirius (who is always offering me a free trial). On the station’s Facebook page I found that they are doing upgrades on their tower and in the interim they are broadcasting at a lower power. Hopefully I’ll be back to belting my songs in the car in a week or so.
In the meantime – I was forced to listen to another station. My preferred is an oldies station. This other one is contemporary music. Very disappointing. I like some contemporary songs but they all sounded alike to me. (Yes, I’ve turned into my mother! Next thing you’ll tell me the Beatles are elevator music!)
Obliviousness – This past Monday I went to the library. It was closed for Columbus Day. *bangs head on table* I never thought to check a calendar. Columbus Day wasn’t a holiday for me when I went to school or worked. When was it promoted?
It’s a sad day – When you miss the drug commercials. We are sick of the political attacks. One month until the election. Then we get to catch up on all the new drugs (and their outrageous side effects) and car deals.
Ready to hang out a shingle – I had lunch with my former gym friends. I only see them every couple of months. I am the youngest. Every time we meet there are new spots on lungs, liver, etc. People graduate from canes to walkers as if it’s a rite of passage. It’s become scary to ask how anyone is but I am becoming an expert in all sorts of medical issues. Fortunately, I also had lunch with another group of friends. All healthy. It’s a balancing act.
So how was your week?
