Apparently I don't like change

I always thought I liked change and that I handled it quite well. I'm thinking that as I get older I'm liking it less and less.

1.) I found out this week that both of my brothers have gotten new jobs. Which means both of them will be moving very, very far away from me and the rest of our family in a very short time. The funny thing is that both of them have always lived within five miles of my parents and the house we grew up in. This makes me incredibly sad. Maybe it's a mid-life crisis thing they are both going through, who knows. All I know is I start to cry every time I think about it.

2.) I have had five bosses in five years. That's a hell of a lot of change. To top it off, I've also had five directors in five years. Did I mention that I have been at the exact same job for five, almost six years? So it's not me.

3.) I know this is petty but Amazon has changed the look of their individual book pages. I go to that site everyday and now the pages are all confusing to me. Yeah, I know, it's petty but it's another change.

4.) I also don't like the fact that within the last month there has been four construction projects set up on my route to work and soon there will be five. Down to one lane for five miles, down to two lanes for fifteen miles, my exit is closed and soon I'll have to park and walk 1.5 miles one way, to and from work. All of this is suposed to be going on until October. Nice.

Change= no good.

Listening to



Friday, April 01, 2005


Last week on NPR there was a segment about CBGB's, the world famouse rock club in New York City. Apparently rent is getting too high and they may have to close their doors for good which makes me very sad. CBGB's has been around forever and is a musical icon. Because of this story, I dug out my Ramones CD's and have been rocking out ever since. (Of course I'd dig out the Ramones! CBGB's and the Ramones go hand in hand!) Because of the Ramones Fest thats been going on in our house, I rented Rock and Roll High School, one of my most favorite movies since I was 10 years old. (My husband had never seen it! I was floored!) Did you know that Howard Stern is doing a remake of Rock and Roll High School? I'm not sure how I feel about that. If Howard doesn't play Joey then what's the point?

I've always wondered what CBGB's and OMFUG stood for. Can you believe that CBGB's stands for Country Bluegrass Blues? Sort of ironic considering they're famous for underground rock. I can't remember what OMFUG stands for, but you can go look it up here.
