So the FAA has decided planes can’t fly over my neighborhood anymore. FUCKING HOORAY! Seriously, when they switched the flight path, I thought I was going crazy, like had the planes always been there and I never noticed them? But oh yay yay yay no more planes. I’ll keep my trains and traffic though. Those are noises I love. East Nashville – 1, Planes – 0!
I’m driving to work this morning and there’s a dry cleaner’s van ahead of me. Painted on the side is a photo-real picture of a guy reclining, like head on his hand, and one knee up, the other leg out stretched. Only he doesn’t have hands or a head, just suggestion of them from his pose. He is wearing a red turtleneck sweater, bone coloured khakis, black socks and sage green suede shoes. What I want to know is who fucking approved this as good advertising for dry cleaning. The van also says it’s environmentally friendly dry cleaning. Does this mean people into environmentally friendly things can’t dress themselves?
I’ve temporarily given up NPR while driving to work and instead have picked pop country radio, which makes me only slightly less aggressively, angrily insane than NPR. I think the worst part is when a song comes on and I think, “I don’t hate this song” (don’t necessarily like it, but not hating is a big step) and I find out it’s Tim McGraw or someone. UGH. Perhaps I just need to leave the stereo adapter for the iPod in the car so I can avoid all of this.
