Ugh. Traffic coming home lately has been atrocious. It has to do with the ongoing construction at the offramp to my house, which tends to create a terrible bottleneck that can sometimes extend 10 miles back. Ten miles isn't far, ut it can take me up to an hour sometimes to get home through all that madness, a trip that takes 20-25 minutes otherwise.
Today I couldn't stand the thought of sitting in it. So although it probably took me just as long, I decided to take the surface streets once I'd traveled half the distance I needed to go by freeway. And there was absolutely nothing on the radio to offer me reprieve. To Pandora, at once!
What a perfect opportunity to embark on
Today's New Activity: 2000s Comedy Station
Who knew Pandora had a variety of comedy stations? I freakin' LOVE Pandora....all that variety and all for free. The other day I discovered a toddler music that Monkey went crazy for! So to help ease the torture of all that traffic, I listened to snippets lasting from 1-10 minutes each. I heard a bunch of comedians I'd never heard before (I'm not all that familiar with comedians, obviously), and I didn't end up minding the dozens of stoplights all that much.
It's an awesome new trick to have up my sleeve :)
