Thankfully, I have had a really busy day in work today, and it looks set to continue to be busy tomorrow too! I enjoy being busy as it passes the time, and I can’t complain about anything if I’m enjoying it! Which I would never do on this blog now anyway!
The weather today has been a little misleading. Bright and sunny looking out, but quite cool actually outside in it. Still, it is January, and it generally is a cool time of the year. Particularly in my country.
I’ve been listening to the local radio in my car recently. Usually I just drive with the sound of the engine purring and the wheels rolling along the ground, but lately I’ve had the radio on. The radio in my car is slightly strange in the fact that it doesn’t remember the radio station I last had it tuned to when I was last in the car. Well, it does, but I have to press a couple of buttons for it to tune in correctly. No big task. Only tonight, I noticed that I appeared to be going through a poor reception area (I’ve never gone through this poor reception area before, although I drive the same route nearly every day). The music was distorted with crackles, whistles, whines and then it went completely, just for a second or two, and then it was back. As clear as it was before. Only it wasn’t back – the radio had tuned itself into a completely different radio station which was playing music the likes of which I have never heard before, and don’t think I want to hear again. Awful. The crackles, whistles and whines were much better. I quickly pressed the usual buttons and got my radio station back. With decent music. I sound really old saying that… music these days is nothing like it used to be.
Although in all fairness some of it is good. Almost everyday now I listen to Katy Perry singing “Firework” and I really like it. One part in particular, that goes something like:
You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
I enjoy switching on the radio, the TV or walk into a shop and this song is playing, as I like it, I feel as though it is being played everywhere for me! Apart from that radio station that I accidentally tuned into this evening. If the DJ hadn’t started speaking, I would have been convinced that the sounds were coming from an alien race trying to make contact with us on Earth. Although, I don’t think they would choose me to communicate with given there are a few other people who would probably be higher on their list. If they did communicate with me, I would play them Katy Perry’s “Firework” to show them a better way of producing sounds.
In other developments, I’ve still been looking for new blogs for my recommendations page, and think I have found some more that I will try to add soon. I’ve rearranged the widgets on the main page a little as I thought they seemed a little out of balance – but they may be rearranged again soon – I seem to have a little problem finding the perfect balance. Still, practice makes perfect.
I’ve also added one of those visitor map things that puts a dot on the map whenever someone visits the blog. At present, I am the only dot there. I looked very lonely being the only one in the world. The good thing is, the dot is that big (or rather the map is that small) it covers the whole of the UK – so I wouldn’t know if I was on my own or not. And I feel like that in Aquatom Mansion sometimes, especially when I have the feeling that the ghost is in visitation. I think I may nickname her Dot as I don’t know anything about her, and I think it is as good a name as any…
Theme for the evening… arrangements, rearrangements and possible visitations.
More to come tomorrow!
