I feel like half the time I'm sitting at my desk at work, I have my ear buds in but nothing is playing. I put them in without thinking, because a lot of the time I'm listening to something. I just realized I've had an ear bud in my ear for I don't even know how long but haven't been listening to anything in quite awhile. Do you guys ever do that?
In other thoughts, yesterday I was listening to the radio and they were talking about the old band, The Cure. I've carried a secret with me through the nineties, the zeros, and now the tweens (2011/2012): I don't like the Cure. The only song I can half tolerate by them is "Friday, I'm in love" and even that I can only listen to all the way through once every 15 years or so.
And while we're on the subject, I also can't stand Smashing Pumpkins. At all. That voice! How!? How... ????? Anyway. To conclude I may as well make two more mini confessions: I'm ok with never hearing "somebody that I used to know" by Gotye, or that Call me Maybe song ever again.
In other music news, I hate to break it to you guys, but the Trololo guy died this week. The song though, will never die. Not if I have anything to say about it.
Lastly, I have to take my bike into the shop today. I'm nervous because even though I love my bike, I know very little about it. It gives, I take. That's the pattern with my bike and me. I don't know anything about bike maintenance. I'm nervous about the kinds of questions they're going to ask me about it. I'm picturing it going down like this:
Bike guy: So what kind of bike is it?
Me: The bike kind. Two wheels, etc.
BG: How old is it?
Me: I don't know. It's adopted.
BG: What's wrong with it?
Me: The back tire is... stuck.
BG: Bike lingo bike lingo bike lingo technical words axles spokes tires bike oil bike lingo rods bike.
Me: I'll give you a million dollars - just fix it please.
You guys, this might not go well!
