Highs and Lows, on an iPhone

I went for a nice long walk/run today. One of my favorite parts of walking, other than zoning out and often clearing out enough fog from my brain to elicit new ideas, is listening to music. I recently discovered the wonders of Pandora radio -- I love choosing an artist based on my mood and listening to the mix of similar music on "their" station.

There's a commercial around here for a fertility clinic that Pandora plays (for those of us who don't cough up the fee for their service) from time to time. It begins, "Are you having trouble getting pregnant?" and I swear to you, every time I hear it, I come this close to throwing my iPhone into the Long Island Sound.

It came on today and almost killed my good mood. Almost.

But then Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" started playing and, just as it does every time I hear it, it gave me the feeling that more good things are coming, right around the corner.

They are. They ARE.

And if not the fall, then 2015 has to be better, no?

I'm glad it didn't deter your mood.
Also, wouldn't it be nice to customize ads not so much as what we're most likely to buy, but to avoid the stuff we really don't want to hear about?
Here's hope for good things coming to you.

Glad it did not ruin your good mood. The radio here has a commercial for the other infertility office in our area. The other, as it's not the one of the only two in the area that I did not go to.

That said, that commercial always irks me. There is a lady that they are supposed to be interviewing for the commercial and she says "Dr. So&So cured my endometriosis and now we have a baby." I want to hit her and scream "You can't cure endometriosis. You can only treat it!!! You moron!"

OMG, my Pandora station kept playing, over and over and over again, ads for the IF clinic we rejected because the RE was a total and complete asshat, and the one we were currently going to and spending I wrote a note to Pandora to complain (I don't mind the commercials, but I couldn't stand these ones) and then stopped listening altogether. I was just so angry.
