I have issues. It's no secret. But I have two issues in specific that I can no longer keep secret. They have been festering in my mind and I have to speak out!

1. If you're listening to your iPod, and you have the volume turned up so loud that you can't hear me, your co-worker, making fun of you because you keep rapping along with the music. It's too loud. I don't want to hear you mangle the lyrics of "pop/pop/pop goes my niiiine..." when I'm trying to listen to my audio copy of "Haunted" by Chuck Palahnuik.


2. It took me a very long time to warm up to Dave Matthews Band. I had already pledged my allegiance to REM, and I didn't want them to think I was cheating so early in our relationship. But then, I saw them live, and I found room in my heart to love them both. But then... Dave Matthews put out a solo album. Dave Matthews names a band after himself, and then puts out a solo album. This has to be a sign of narcissism. I know, he put out that album years ago, but every time I see that American Express credit card commercial, I whip out my Hootie and the Blowfish cassette and Let Her Cry.

Thank you, I'm done.

Another brilliant rant from the queen of blogging :)
Both REM & DMB bring me back to the good old days of grumpy, hormone-driven teenagerdom.

Probably the best response would be to steal said person's iPod and replace his/her music with the "Haunted" audiobook. Oh, yes...
