OK, so I might have been a little premature when I told you how well this caffeine withdrawal thing was going. *grump* I'm fine in the mornings (which is when I wrote that the other day), but by late afternoon, I'm so irritable and grumpy I feel like I could scratch someone's eyes out. Or maybe my own. It's almost like my skin is itchy. You can feel extremely grateful that you're not living with me right now.
I can't really think of anything else to tell you at the moment. I'm pretty sure it's getting a little better every day, although it's not easy to tell. Tonight seems to be better than it was a couple of nights ago, so maybe progress is being made. Except now I'm getting a cold. woe is me.
Well, OK, here's something. Awhile back I told you I'd tell you about my workout playlist. When I'm driving around or just listening to music, I'll listen to all kinds of different stuff, but when I'm exercising, I want something with a beat, something that makes me want to move. I was getting tired of my old music when I heard a Prince song on the radio a couple of months ago. (He's Prince again now, isn't he? Not the artist formerly known as Prince? I think that's right.)
Prince was at the height of his career when I was in my early twenties, but I wasn't much of a fan. He was just a little too weird. Also, various critics praised his music to the skies when it didn't seem all that amazing to me. But the song I heard on the radio recently--Raspberry Beret--had a pretty irresistible hook, and when I went to iTunes they had his greatest hits album for 9.99, so I downloaded it. So now my workout playlist is about half Prince songs: the aforementioned Beret, 1999, Let's Go Crazy, Little Red Corvette, I Would Die 4 U. They're working pretty well for me so far.
Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down? Oh no let's go. I guess I should have known by the way you parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last. The sky was all purple, there were people running everywhere. ET CETERA. I just looked him up and was surprised to discover that he has released eleven albums since 2000. Who knew? That's pretty impressive for a guy who is even older than me.
