Brrrr, and a Hearty Hello to you all.
It's what we call Darn CHILLY around here, and I have been inspired to pull out the fuzzy socks. I'll just go ahead and confess right this very second that I have Absolutely No Intention of going on my daily walk today.
Because, the sun? He is gone.
Me and a cold, sunny day, we do just fine, thank you. But me and the cold, dreary day, we're not what you'd consider homeboys.
So I plan to stay in, think about soup, practice with my camera, and ignore the myriad of things that I could probably accomplish. Because, honestly, who wants to ruin the excuse of a dreary, cold day by actually getting anything done?
Note: If you are a professional photographer, or even a pretty fair photographer, please do not glance upon the following photo.
I took this in my living room yesterday with the new camera, and just particularly like it. It might be in part because it is only one of two (out of about 75) that is actually in focus.
You might notice that our decorating touches around here are a bit "sparse", and in response I'd just like to say:
"Excuse me, but haven't you heard of minimalism?"
Which would of course, be a a sad attempt to divert you from the fact that well, I'm just such a poor decorator that I simply adopt the minimalistic idea out of desperation and maybe a little rebellion.
I AM without a cause.
But, really. The whole "decor debacle" deserves it's own post, and today, of course, I want to talk about:
XM Everything Plus The Best of Sirius.
I've just recently been introduced to the whole Sirius /Satellite /XM Radio concept, and let me tell you what I know.
OK, I don't know a lot.
I'm just assuming Sirius/Satellite/XM all means the same thing, and if, in fact it doesn't, I kindly ask for your help in understanding the difference.
With the following stipulations:
Please don't bother trying to explain it to me if the explanation will involve
1) mathematical formulas
4) or anything that I am supposed to understand without actually being able to SEE.
But, I'm a fan of this intergalactic radio listening.
Yes ma'am I AM.
I love the fact that at anytime of the day or night I could chill to 'B.B. King's Blues',
groove to '50's Pop Hits'
or Break it Down to 'Old Skool Rap'.
I could listen to 'Movie Soundtracks' or 'Gospel', 'Tropical/Latin Pop'
or in a pinch be 'First in Business Worldwide' or
I'm telling you right now pretty much anything (and maybe more) than I could imagine.
Of course, I have yet to figure out how to set any of the stations and constantly have to look in the "Quick Reference Guide to actually FIND 24/7 NFL talk because you can imagine how deprived I've felt without THAT all these many years...
There plainly is just no telling what I might learn.
And I say that in the most apprehensive way.
Of course I won't be learning anything, I've discovered, under an overpass, in the garage, or in the drive-thru at McDonald's.
I leave you with these weighty thoughts.
Please Carry On.
