Book I'm Reading: Gunman's Rhapsody by Robert B. Parker
Song in my Head: Offering by Third Day
As you can see, I'm trying something new on my blog. I'm always reading at least one book, and I almost always have a song stuck in my head, and since this is my blog to do with as I will, I decided to force you readers to know what both of those things are at the time I post something. Lucky you, huh?
Today I went to Caribou Coffee in NW Rochester to write and wait while the firstborn attended Driver's Ed. Four classes down, six to go.
While I was there, I listened to music on my MP3 player. The DH got it for me for Christmas and I LOVE it! It's made walking on the treadmill so much more interesting--the time just flies and so do I--and I can listen my tunes without disturbing Peter. We have completely different taste in music. Today I was able to listen and drown out the sounds of the people and bustle around me.
Unfortunately, I have a hard time listening to music while I'm writing or editing. Sometimes I find myself even typing the lyrics of the song. Yikes...not good in an historical novel.
I also have to watch that I don't bust out in song in a public place. I always have the radio going in the car and my family has learned to ignore the singing along with whatever's playing. But the MP3 player is another thing altogether.
It would give new meaning to the phrase, "Does the noise in my head bother you?"*
Anybody get songs stuck in their head? Anybody sing along with the radio in the car? Anybody ever been caught jammin at the top of their lungs when they thought no one was listening?
