Keeping on keeping on since 1996

Everyday is a crap shoot

Monday, October 8, 2007

Have you ever noticed how the first song you hear is the song stuck in your head all day? That seems to be my problem.

I don't like waking up to a buzzer. It's jarring and irritating and, for me, not exactly the best way to start the day. So instead I use the radio feature. Not so loud that it's jarring, but just loud enough to wake me up. It's set to the local oldies station that's usually doing the news when the radio goes off (err, on). The sound of talking heads is a gentle but effective way for me to wake up. But there are some mornings when either they're ahead of schedule or behind, becase it's not news but music.

"Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" is now coursing through my head. And it won't let go.
