A couple of weeks ago, my favorite radio station got converted from "'90s alternative and new rock" to ESPN radio. While B was thrilled (he was stoked to finally have ESPN radio on FM), I was not. I have since discovered that the only stations within reception range of my house/drive to work are top 40 stations. I never thought this was a problem until I actually had to listen to them all the time.
I have heard more em effing Lady freaking Gaga in the past two weeks than I ever, EVER cared to. Ever. I swear to you that I hear at least two of her "songs" for every hour I spend in the car (and for those keeping track, she only has three songs out right now, none of which are any good). On my way to our Fourth of July cookout (a 45 minute drive), I heard "Poker Face" and "Love Game." And I wanted to stab myself in the eyeball just to distract my ears from hearing that crap. And don't get me started on "Birthday Sex." Are you freaking kidding me? It's quite possibly the Worst.Song.Ever.
Ok, deep breath...
I need satellite radio.
