beautiful noise

I have become addicted to whitenoisemp3s.com, where a talented and dedicated recorder of various types of steady noise has made available her quite astonishing recordings. I mean maybe I'm a noob at this genre, but I've slowly been collecting her custom 1-hr mp3s, named such things as "Lavatory 3am," or "Sleepy Car Ride" (recorded on the trans-Canada highway!) or my favorite, "Early Winter Wilderness," and no matter what I am doing it is easier to do it if they are constantly playing in my ears. I've been sleeping with earphones in and working with headphones on and even reading with the things playing and it's the most soothing thing ever. So in case, you know, your sedatives aren't working, I recommend this website wholeheartedly. The mp3's come with a lifetime money back guarantee! she also employs animated .gifs charmingly. that's quite a trick.



they came in very handy last night as I had two 12,000-word edits; nominally four hours' work, they only took me six. I've stopped trying to comprehend what is being written about and only strictly correct grammar. If I cannot make sense of a sentence I tell them that I don't know what they are trying to say. doing these long ones consecutively makes me appreciate the short ones more but overall I'm getting very tired of doing this. I suppose teaching might be a welcome switch, but I'm not absolutely sure even of that.

I must eat here in a minute and then go over to the Art Institute to pick up desk copies of my textbooks. I need to sleep, and maybe I should sleep first, but I don't know what time the admin assistant for our department goes home and I bet it is less than 8 hours from now. so I'll go over there and then collapse back here.

if I can get myself to take my headphones off.
