Oh, the Onion. I love you for so much more than the fact that I used to occasionally say I was an Onion when I really meant to type Ohioan.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to include an article about This American Life and a photo of Ira Glass. I especially enjoyed the quote from Sarah Vowell while she was dressed as Betsy Ross.
I apparently missed the episode on Coffee Addiction: One Woman’s Tale of Survival. I’ll have to see if I can find it in audible.com’s archives. By the way, if you’re incapable of catching an entire This American Life show on NPR on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays (not because you’re busy, but because you’re lazy and/or forgetful), you can sign up for their free podcast. They run old shows often so I’m getting to hear lots of shows I missed. That way you can be cheap and not have to pay $0.95 for an archived copy… as long as you have patience as you wait for the show you want to hear to come into rotation.
I have a long car trip coming up this weekend to Las Vegas to celebrate the realization that “Yikes! We’ve been married for three years!” feeling. So I will probably get some device that will allow me to play my iPod over the car stereo. Yes, there is a chance I will have my first-ever detachable-face-front car stereo! Don’t expect to see anything else pimped out, though. Not while gas is hovering at nearly $3 a gallon. Yikes! Maybe I’ll win the penny slots again to help offset the cost of the trip.
Here’s to hoping!
