A couple weeks back, my favorite radio station changed format. They went from non-sucky, non-screaming, totally hillarious talk radio and turned into yet another crappy ass, Top 40 station. Around that time, I moved my radio from where it was in the kitchen, around to the otherside of the apartment – I figured I wouldn’t be listeming as much, so why did I need it nearby now. So basically, without my favorite day time radio show and without my radio nearby, things have just been too damn quiet.
Now I know what you’re thinking…why can’t I just listen to music onlilne? I could. I guess. Thing is, I like to have multiple tabs open on my computer. This means I tend to suck up my computer’s whatevers. Add to that keeping my Tweetdeck open and active and well, I tell myself that I’ll somehow manage to bog my computer down so much that it will be super slooooooow. Yet in reality, I know that’s so not the case.
Of course, since the hubs is away this week at SXSW listening to, recording and shooting a gazillion bands, it’s even quieter still. The only regular sound we’ve got going here is the non-stop dog barking (oh my god, he’s going to kill me if he can’t get quiet and stop barking at the neighbor’s dogs). And well, between the silence and the non-stop barking, I think it’s becoming just too much for this poor soul to take.
Thank goodness I’ll be heading out shortly for cupcakes. I love MeetUps and I love cupcakes. That will give me some time away. I’m just ready for the hubby to get back home tomorrow.
And now in honor of this very post, I’ve opened up el iTunes and I’m jamming to some ABBA. Much better! Not so quiet now…The winner takes it all….
Working/writing without music is deadly for me. Sometimes, I’ll listen to the same single CD on full repeat for the entire day. As long as it’s music.
