Current Events

Hello,

I am the type of person who likes to stay fairly aware of current events and the goings-on in the world.  However, there are chunks of time where I give up on humanity and focus my efforts inward, completely ignoring my surroundings.  The past 4 months (approximately) has been the “avoid-all-news” type of time period.  I mean, I still perused the NYTimes for headlines, but I really haven’t put much effort into making myself up to speed.

Anyway, last night I had a mindless project and decided to flip on NPR.  I got sucked into stories and news for the next THREE HOURS!  What?  Me?  I frequently tell my boyfriend that he is a grandpa because he has switched from music to NPR on his commutes to work…and now I am one of THEM.  sick.

I guess the switch for me was inevitable because I already listen to approximately 6 hours of The Current each day.  But now I can tell you all of the details of the health care bill, playground coaches, and the intimate details of last year’s famous pirate raid/US Navy takedown.  Impressive, sad, or necessary?  You be the judge.
