Going Outside My Box

I stepped outside of my comfort zone last night. I bought a new cd. While this may not seem like a big deal to you - it is to me. The last time I got any new music from an artist I'd never listened to before it was a couple of months ago and it was Houdini and I got it because I like Anaglyph's blog. (see, if i read your blog and you crank out any music or a book i will be right on the frontlines looking for it. everyone unleash your inner musician/writer and i promise that you will have at least one buyer!) And I was really surprised that I really liked the cd. Prior to that I don't remember when I purchased something from someone that I haven't listened to. So I've been thinking maybe I should expand my music collection. On my way home I got the newest White Stripes cd. At work I was reading some magazine and it said it was good so I thought what the heck. At the worst I will be out 15 bucks but I won't starve because of it. And I like it. Maybe as I age my musical taste is veering away from the country "my wife left me and took my dog" music to something else. I've decided that I will try and get something new more often. I have just found a new country song that I'm a big fan of - Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off. I think he wrote this song about me.

I also got one of those thingies that you put on your visor to hold cds and I installed it backwards and on the wrong side of the visor. I don't like it. I like being able to see the cd covers. I think that's why I'm such a fan of books - I like seeing them sitting around and knowing immediately what's inside just by looking at the cover.

Sweety has to go to work tomorrow somewhere about 2 hours away. He asked me if I wanted to go but I'd much rather sleep than spend 4 hours in a car and then 6 hours napping on someone's desk. He may guilt me into it though. It is nice going on trips with him. We get to visit. I dunno, the song of my comfy bed and the internet at my disposal my whim.

I guess I'll fight the urge to go do some shots of tequila and get ready for work instead.

WOO! I want to do shots of tequila. But I'm AT work. I guess they'd frown on that.

You're seriously considering devoting 10 hours of your life to going to a job that isn't yours just so you can have a conversation? What kind of crazy shit could you POSSIBLY be talking about to warrant that?

Haha...You mentioned your Box LOL Wouldn't you rather be inside your box? Okay...sorry...

bekah - I think it would be okay if you drank at work. You just get wasted on Monday and tell them that I said it was alright.

armaedes - Sweety is quite an interesting conversationalist. And it's not just conversation - there'd be 4 hours that I could devote to oral gratification while he drives :)

chuck - I am the KEEPER of the box so it's kind of old news to me.

Glad you liked the song! It's been in my head all day.
