Random bits and pieces I decided to split from the post I originally posted:
We have a new phone system here. Still analog for a few more weeks, but then we'll be digital. This should help me a lot, since my primary phone interaction is with 75+ year olds who can't hear me even when I shout. Part of that is my soft-talking, and part is the crappy phones we used to have. I expect lots and lots of confusion by my fellow contemporary employees, most of whom are still in the Stone Age. I've already had panic-city from P and C, neither of whom get it at all. *sigh*
I hate song mash ups. They annoy me. It's all "let's take a good song and ruin it with a bad song!" to me.
I also don't generally like covers, but I do like Sweet Child O' Mine
as done by Taken by Trees
, possibly because it's far removed from the original. Same goes for Grey Ice Water
by Sun Kil Moon
instead of Modest Mouse
. I don't like MM
, so that one makes sense. Other covers I like: Wild Horses
, and The Last Beat of My Heart
. None of them are on last.fm, unfortunately.
I don't know what George Lucas was thinking with the Ewoks. (Or, you know, 90% of what he did/does.)
What Barack Obama said isn't a deterrent to me voting for him, if I do vote for him. It's not like he was totally off base. Sorry, Western PAers, that's the general rap you have. Just like I come from the land of hotdish-eating, snowmobiling, gun-toting, Bible-thumping yokels who unfathomably pin their hopes on politicians only interested in using their "morality" to gain votes and financially helping those who already have money, which is not them.
I wish Threadless had tank tops.
I'm all caught up with ReGenesis, woot! Thanks again, nialla42
. Poor Bob. But I do love how frantically David comes running. It's sweet.
tonight, right? Last week's made me LOL in places. The beginning was pretty cute. I don't give a flip about whatever's going on with Madame Director. That show was better when the director wasn't there much at all, and wasn't played by Lauren Holly.
next week. They'd better not keep breaking my heart (in a bad way), because I don't want to give that show up.
