Every morning for as long as Brianna’s been going to daycare, and any other time I’m in the car, I’ve tuned my radio station to 95.3. Why? Because they did the Eighties at Eight every morning. Hello! A whole hour of eighties music? Yes, I have turned into my parents, listening to the songs of my “youth” but c’mon, who doesn’t love the eighties? During the rest of the day, the station played a great mix of 80s, 90s and current, all top 40 stuff. It was easy to listen to and I knew I wouldn’t be hating on most of the music.
Today, my heart was shattered. I dropped Brianna off at daycare, flipped the radio to my fave station and heard…Bob and Sheri’s Chatroom. Who the hell are Bob and Shari, who’s this dude they’re letting blather on about nothing particularly interesting (random caller) and where’s the Eighties at Eight? Gone, it seems. Looks like the radio station is restructuring and they’re piping in a syndicated morning talk show. Can I just say blech? Every other radio station in the area already does morning talk shows (some local, some syndicated). I could have switched to one of them at any time if I wanted to listen to a bunch of people who will drive me insane and raise my blood pressure with their stupidity, and rambling, pointless, inane opinions. I want music, not talk. I WANT MY MTV. Errr…sorry. So anyway, I flipped through all the other local stations and the only one not “talking” was a country station. I like country, it’s why I have it programmed, but not enough to listen to it all the time. I’m so sad! I want my eighties, I want Jeff and Karen back in the morning, I want music. I don’t want change. I don’t LIKE change. Waaaaaah.
It looks like I’ll be loading up my mp3 player again, and plugging it into the car stereo. I wonder if it’s too late to invest in Sirius radio….
I have that going ’round in my head. For those who have no clue what I’m talking about, it’s an old jingle for a commercial for the TV game show Wheel of Fortune. Please don’t ask why I have it stuck in my head. I’ll blame it on hallucinations from being ill.
I’m feeling some better. I was pretty sick Friday and Saturday. Enough so that we really didn’t get to do anything that we had planned. That made being sick so much worse and I’m still bummed about it. The one good thing about being sick (if there is one) is that we usually get some sort of tv/movie watching done because I can’t concentrate on reading or working. So this weekend, in between my long bouts of sleeping, we watched Silent Hill (terrible movie), Ocean’s Thirteen and Live Free: Die Hard.
Josh and I both loved Ocean’s Eleven and have watched and rewatched it many times. I’ve seen Ocean’s Twelve one time. I didn’t care for it much at all, though there were moments that I appreciated (like Julia Roberts pretending to be herself). I liked Ocean’s Thirteen much more than Twelve and would definitely watch it again, though this is a case of the first still shining above the rest, at least for me.
Die Hard, well, I’m a big fan of these movies. These and the Lethal Weapon movies. Love them, love them, love them. Of all the Die Hard movies, the second was not my favorite (for those who aren’t sure, that’s the one that takes place in the airport) but I’d still watch a marathon of all of them and be happy. Yippee-ki-yay! But I think it’s important to go into the movies knowing that they’re going to really ask you to suspend your disbelief and show you totally improbable things. Because otherwise you’re just going to be pissed off. So I loved it and I know I’ll be watching it again. And again. And again. Oh, and Bruce Willis? I think he’s even sexier bald than he was with hair.
I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for today. Either a movie out (National Treasure is calling my name) or watching football since it’s the last week of regular season. Maybe both 😉 Only three more days until Brianna comes home. Man, that has flown by!
I think I mentioned before that Brianna is gone for the week with my in-laws. We’re going to pick her up on Tuesday. So Josh and I have all these fun plans that we want to do while she’s gone. Plus, I have a ton of work to get caught up on. But yesterday, I woke up with a cold and it’s sooo much worse today. Waaaaah. It’s not fair!
My inbox. Josh had five days off. Somehow, we managed to spend a lot of those doing stuff. I’m not sure what. Just stuff. I didn’t answer a lot of email, though. He’s back at work today, Brianna is in New York with my in-laws until Tuesday and I’m wondering if I’ll ever get caught up. But it was all worth it!
Having the Rachael Ray show on the TV in the women’s locker room at the gym. Who’s idea was that?
