I made an Executive Decision a few mornings ago, and I've stuck by it ever since. For my first few days of driving in here, I'd tune in to the all-news station to get the traffic report (every ten minutes, on the 2s) before switching over to the music station I like best. However, I discovered early this week that the music station offers the same traffic reports about two minutes after the news station has them... not to mention, it's not like I have Clue One of an alternative route to get here if the way I know is having a traffic jam, anyway. All the traffic report does is forewarn me if there's congestion on any of the roads I'll be using.
So now I leave the music station on ALL the time. Life's too short to listen to the news when you'd really, really prefer to have music on.
Cleverest answering machine greeting I've heard so far: "Darn it all, we missed your call! Please leave a message..." ROTFLMHO! After the beep, I introduced myself, left the 800# for them to call and reschedule, and followed it up with, "By the way, your answering machine message is great!" :o) Life is short, pay compliments, even to complete strangers.
PIZZA! I'm not sure what the occasion is, but there are a whole bunch of pizzas in the lunchroom for everyone. Yay, :o)!
Tonight there's another Flyers/Phantoms softball game. The only problem is, it's in Warminster PA, and I have no idea where the ballfield is. I think I'll give this one a miss and aim for the one that's in Bellmawr, NJ on Sunday afternoon. At least I've had a couple of recent hockey fixes, between seeing Neil a couple Sundays ago and seeing the game on Wednesday. Even more important, I've had a couple of GOALIE fixes, since Neil was at both events. anybody who's aware of what a Goalie Junkie I am knows that this is a major thing. :o)
GOOD THING I didn't try to go to the softball game tonight. The best way for me to get there, the PA turnpike, is closed due to a jackknifed tractor trailer that spilled fertilizer all over the road. Traffic on I-476 North and the Schuylkill Expressway Westbound (both the opposite direction of the way I drive home), headed toward the turnpike, was at a total standstill for miles. Even if I had a clue how to find the ballfield, traffic is so messed up that I would have been lucky to get there by the time the game ended.
Bring on Sunday afternoon's game in South NJ; at least I have a pretty good idea where Bellmawr is!
