Here it is, kids! My usual whine about how Friday seems to have stretched itself out into about 20 work days all strung together. I thought maybe we'd luck out when I came back from lunch to find the power out, but no, denied. It came back on.
To add to my slow demise, it's public radio telethon time and I thought seriously about calling in to pledge a million dollars if they'd just STOP ALREADY. I think my head actually might have exploded around the time they featured someone's kids singing (in harmony) the theme from "All Things Considered". I know, dude, it's like they want me to die horribly. What dumb kids actually like that theme song anyway? It's terrible! It reminds me of long dark, cold drives in the back of my dad's VW Rabbit when I was a kid. It's deadly. Do these kids not have access to real music? Someone slip them some Beatles or something, get them started down the right path? Sheesh.
I have that damn meeting in NINE minutes, so right quick, here's what I'm digging lately:
Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda. I wasn't sure it was going to be my kind of book but now I'm afraid to read too much at one sitting because I don't want it to end. It's fantastic.
Costello Music by The Fratellis. My new favorite band. I cannot get enough of the skinny talented British boys who curse a lot.
Pushing Daisies on ABC. This is the best show on television right now. It's borderline twee but has a nice dark side to balance things out. It's also freaky and clever and this week a couple of characters sang a They Might Be Giants song, referencing their current situation AND the movie the band was named after. It's ridiculous and I couldn't love it more if I tried.
