Robert Earl Keen is one of my favorite pop singers, but every time I hear “The Road Goes on Forever” as I just did on WFUV, I cringe at the lyrics:
Sherry drove the pickup through the alley on the side
Where a lawman tackled Sonny and was reading him his rights
She stepped into the alley with a single shot .410
The road goes on forever and the party never ends
I understand that .410 rhymes with “ends”, but you can’t punch a holes in a postage stamp with a .410, much less kill a policeman. Keen’s a good ol’ boy and knows his weaponry so he must have gotten lazy on this particular lyric.
It’s still a good song, but “Feeling Good Again” is at least as good, and doesn’t have any impossible kills with a sparrow-killer shotgun.
Idiot buys Newsweek for a buck. I haven’t read Newsweek since high school, but I bet it sells for more than a dollar on newsstands. Kinda cool to buy the whole company for less than the price of a single copy. Cool, but dumb.
Our wonderful Multiple Listing service shows 8 sales and 4 contracts recorded today but the system crashes when pressed for details. I’ll try again later.
UPDATE: A whole bunch of nothing by which I mean million dollarish sales and contracts. Fifteen insignificant price reductions, and that was it. Head for the beaches.
So far, can’t find a tab function or a way to capitalize letters (I’m not working with a salesman so there’s probably an answer to this). Weird to type on the screen, too.
Anyone out there using this To blog. I don’t think I like it.
Windows Explorer, which I have to use to access the GML’s POS website, has suddenly started giving me “time out” warnings and then dropping me off the Internet. I’m sure this is “not a bug, but a feature” as Microsoft is so fond of saying, but huh?
