Country hell

June 26, 2008 Comments off

My wife and I have pretty eclectic tastes in music: we’ll listen to just about anything.  However, neither Alicea or I listen to what I like to call “twangy” country music (some of the more rockin’ stuff isn’t half bad).  We spent 11/9 years (respectively) in the South … and we haven’t looked back.

Alicea’s working over at a certain global technology firm based in Redmond, WA these days as an admin, and her office mate loves country music.  Check out Alicea’s Twitter feed from this morning…

Alyleth: Got my smoothie – ready for work! Unfortunatly my officemate’s music of choice is country…. KILL ME NOW!

Alyleth: lyrics… no shoes, no shirt, no problem… WTF?!?!?

She just told me the chorus to the next song that came on, and I can’t make this up, shouted to the world (and Alicea’s office), “she thinks my tractor’s sexy.”

Wow.  And I thought “John Deere Green” was a lame song.

No more tunes at Starbucks?

BUMMER!  I actually kind of like having media available at the checkout.  I’ve scored a couple nice selections that way (2-disc Police set, and the movie Juno).  Oh well…
