You are so hard to read, you play hide and seek with your true intentions.

I have my alarm set on a pop/soft rock station, because it’s just about the only thing that comes in clearly. In Greensboro, I used to have it set on NPR, but I can’t get any of those stations out in the sticks where we are (at least, I can’t get them on my clock radio).

Normally this isn’t a big problem, because I wake up to an innocuous pop song and turn it off. This morning, however, was different. Somehow last night I managed to set my alarm for an hour early, so this morning it went off at 6 instead of 7. To add to that horror, the radio station was playing Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up.” I cannot conceive why, in the year 2004, they would be playing that song. At 6am. I mean, if people have to get up that early, why torture them with Paula Abdul? At least give them music that makes them not hate their lives and their jobs that make them get up that early.

Of course the stupid song is in my head now. At least I was able to get back to sleep for another hour. But it’s not exactly the best way to start a Friday morning. hehe.
