improve your work day

There's no getting around it -- no matter how much you love your job, the idea of working still blows, especially in DC where everything is so dang serious all the dang time. Although, come to think of it, regardless of location, working blows. Actually, obliging long periods of your time to anything blows. Long flights? They blow. Long hours in school? That blows. Long-term relationships? They really blow. (Commitment problems? What?) Extended vacations? Those...well, OK, those don't blow. But you get the idea. Responsibility inherently kind of blows. Also, using the word blow so much also blows. Sorry.

Anyway, to lessen the burden of being a responsible adult, I give to you a Web site that can provide hours of joy at work, school, home, wherever. It's called Pandora Radio and what it does is amazing. (And it's free.)

Simply type in the name of a band or song you like (e.g. Color Me Badd's "I Wanna Sex You Up") and it automatically generates an infinite playlist of songs it guesses you'd enjoy based on your original suggestion. For instance, my Color Me Badd playlist generated songs from such artists as the great Milli Vanilli, the undeniable Tevin Campell and R Kelly (he doesn't even need an adjective).

Seriously, it pretty much read my mind. It's weird. And it doesn't blow.
