Calendar of Updates
I'm just stopping in to make a quick update, as I have to hop in the shower and get ready to go to work in a few minutes. I just wanted to talk about a couple random subjects that have come across my mind since my last update.
First, as I was working yesterday, and being subjected to the same music being played by our lovely Detroit FM radio stations, I came to a conclusion you may find either humorous or sad. All you need is about 25 songs among which must be "Space Between" and "It's Not Easy" by the Dave Matthews Band, "When It's Over" by Sugar Ray, and an overload of Destiny's Child and a good radio transmitter/antenna, and you can run a successful Detroit FM station from your very own home! (The fact that FCC will shoot you down notwithstanding.)
Secondly well, this is more an experience than a thought. I had a near-miss on the highway last night. I was going to Ann Arbor to visit Nym, and was driving southbound on US-23 near Pinckney, when I saw a pickup swerve in front of me. With the darkness and lack of reflectors in that stretch, I almost failed to see it myself a car sideways, and without lights, just sitting in the left lane. I'm just lucky I was in the right lane at the time, and escaped with nothing more than a figurative shitting of my pants. So, whatever you do on the highways, please be careful; you never know what might happen.
