Music to soothe the savage beast
You know I have been very busy at work recently and am struggling to stay caught up. I went in to work last night and it was so quiet and peaceful and I got a lot accomplished.
So I thought I would do the same tonight. As I arrived I remembered there was a reception being held in the first floor lobby. Its OK I thought, I'm on the 2nd floor.
They were so loud I could hear them in my office. Clapping, cheering, giving speeches. I tried to focus but it was a bit annoying. Then a coworker comes upstairs and says he's leaving because they are starting karaoke. I thought it was a joke.
Then it started - for real - and loud. I suffered through Hotel California, the Village People's YMCA, and then they started doing Whitney. That was the straw that broke the camels back. I had become the Savage Beast and that noise was NOT soothing me.
Later tonight I will try to forget the gawd awful songs I heard while I watch the elimination episode of Dancing with the Stars. I really think it is time to send Melissa Gilbert back the Prairie. (fingers crossed) This show is a guilty pleasure. And this year I have been having fun with a group of hilarious women on facebook. Sweet Alice from the blog A Day in the Life has been hosting a little DWTS fun during each show. There is a bunch of ladies from Canada and the US and the comments are just hysterical. It can get to be a no-holds-barred critique from some very clever and funny gals.
