Dream Stephen, "Snow" and Music.

Last night I had a dream that I was getting into bed, and as I was getting into bed I was thinking to myself that I should blog about how lazy I am. The worst part about it all, was that dream Stephen though this was a fantastic idea and that people would love to read it. Well, I have two words for dream Stephen: Bite me. (Softly, please… – OK, so that’s four and not three..) Seriously though, I called myself lazy in my sleep, who does that?! Right now I am sitting on the couch in my living room listening to Pandora and blogging in an attempt to prove dream Stephen wrong. (So essentially, I’m sitting on my ass doing almost nothing.)

Sometime between last night and early this morning it snowed. It isn’t a lot of snow, and the trees outside my backdoor make it look like it is even less snow than it actually is, but it is still snow. Fortunately for me, I don’t need to call in “snow” to work because it will be melted by the time I have to leave. It’s a gorgeous day outside, sunny and beautiful and I suspect it might even get slightly warm outside today. (It was sort of warm yesterday when the sun came out.) I don’t need or want hot weather, I am just tired of cold and wet – I’m ready for a little bit of warmth.

I’m having some difficulty blogging this morning, I keep getting distracted. Pandora keeps playing weird music while simultaneously trying to slip “Glee” covers into my playlist. I went into a rage when an A Capella version of Ben Folds’ “You Don’t Know Me” came on, I thought for sure it was the “Glee” cast ruining another good song. They have a tendency to do that at times – the first time they covered Adele I about had a fit. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for being creative…but sometimes they just need to stop neutering music.

Speaking of music, this morning I’ve decided to try out Spotify. The service looks promising, but their mobile app doesn’t support CDMA BlackBerries. My BlackBerry is a CDMA BlackBerry, so I am out of luck there. This issue will prevent me from upgrading to the premium version, because I can’t use the mobile app. (For those of you who don’t know, CDMA is the network technology that Verizon uses.) Supposedly there is an app in the works that supports the Bold 9930 (my phone) but I am not holding my breath for it.

Now that I have babbled for a little bit this morning, I think it is probably for the best that I stop. This post was both uninformative, and terrible and probably shouldn’t be published. I’m going to be awesome and do it anyway..but only because I’ve got a photo of the “snow” and the first paragraph might be slightly amusing to somebody.

P.S. I’m finishing this post while the A-Trak Dub Mix version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” is playing. It’s fantastic.
