Clock with No Hands

During the week when I have to work, the alarm clock is always an unwelcome sound & I don't want to get up. On the weekends, however, I usually get up around the same time. When I was a kid, I always wondered why my parents got up so early in the morning. Now, 7:00 am is sleeping in for me. Also, staying up past 11:00 pm is a chore.

It doesn't matter what the clock says today, except for meeting Christie at 1:00 to help her move some of her stuff. A trip to Grand Rapids means a trip to Vertigo before 1:00 to pick up the new Son Volt album & the new Arcade Fire album & whatever else catches my eye. I had no idea that Son Volt was even releasing a new album until the other day, so it's a welcome surprise. Also, Season 6, the final season, of Northern Exposure was released this week as well. I didn't know about that, either, so as I haven't had enough time to look forward to it, I'll wait on picking that up. The anticipation is the best part, you know.

Thanks to Dan, I've now discovered the itunes on my computer, which allows me to switch from Charley Patton to the Roots to Rage Against the Machine with a click of a mouse.

This blog has no point. I'm sorry.

Pointless blog?? No such thing. At least I know you haven't fallen off the face of the earth. It was great talking to you a few minutes ago!

I agree with your Mom. No blogs should come with apologies.

I am surprised you are just using itunes. Matt uses that program non stop. Every now and then he even burns the old lady a mix cd.
