Friday Random Ten


Do you hear that sound? It's a kind of dull thump followed by an exasperated sigh. That's the sound of my head repeatedly hitting my desk as I try to alleviate some of the stress caused by my co-workers today. My office is currently testing a new inventory system and for some reason I have been designated the office trainer. I have one week to make these people understand the mechanics of a drop down box, and frankly I'm not sure if I am going to make it. I'm fully expecting at some point to just scream "For fuck's sake, people! Just click on the goddamned box and pick a fucking option! Any option! I don't care!" Maybe I can frighten them into compliance, but I have a feeling all I am going to do is bring on my own heart attack at the tender age of 28. So, be patient with me, dear friends, because my stress has reached a critical level, and this is one of my only outlets to vent.

Of course, my mp3 collection must have noticed my fragile state, since it randomly generated some pretty poptastic songs for me to listen to today. If Sloan can't make me happy, not much will...

  1. Star Sign - Teenage Fanclub
  2. You're No Rock & Roll Fun - Sleater Kinney
  3. G Turns to D - Sloan
  4. Wild Horses (live) - Iron & Wine and Calexico
  5. Sally McLennane - The Pogues
  6. Big Sister's Clothes/Stand Down Margaret - Elvis Costello
  7. Jackson Cannery - Ben Folds Five
  8. Legendary - Lou Barlow
  9. World Before Columbus - Suzanne Vega
  10. Shine a Light - Wolf Parade

Your turn!
