The Small Things

As I sit here at work, editing in the cafe, I thank God for the small things. First, the tv here is on the blink. So, I don't have to watch either CNN or ESPN. Second, the radio station they have on is playing wonderful 70's music--music I know the words to and music that, for the most part, makes me smile. I have had enough of being forced to listen to suicide-inducing country music when I shop at home. (No offense intended to country music fans--I just can't take the melancholy.)

Dymphna, I know what you mean -- but OTOH, try some country music parodies like "I Lobster, then I Flounder", or the immortal Christmas number, "Grandma got Run Over by a Reindeer"! They always make me laugh...

Well, I admit that the latter makes me wince, although, perhaps if I see it as a parody of country music, I'll be more apt to enjoy it! :)

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
