... is, in part, the supremely overplayed signature tune from Boston...
I was listening to Pandora's Roxy Music station today, which makes me wonder how Boston figures into that equation. I say that coz I see very little, if any, relation between the stuff that Bryan Ferry did with Roxy Music and the stuff Boston put out. But who knows what evil or goodness lurks in the heart of Pandora? Not I...
"More Than a Feeling" is one of those tunes I love to hate, simply because it's been well and truly overplayed. I normally dive for the "change station," skip, or mute buttons when this song comes on, mainly coz I've heard MORE than enough of it since the tune hit the airwaves in 1976. But I didn't skip it today... I listened. And it sounded GOOD, recalling as it did memories of 1976, a period of time during which I was young and in love and I was hearing this tune every day, at every party, all the time, during that time. Sometimes it's GOOD to go back... within reason.
And... while we're on about our soundtrack... I also heard this today, which is the MAIN reason we listen to that Roxy Music station. But I've posted THAT video waaay too many times in the past to do it yet again.
In other news... We went and met with our new primary care physician today... Dr. Erika Garcia... which came about because our former doctor flew the coop that is P-Ville and took a new job at a medical institution in Lubbock. I found this out quite by accident when I made a routine stop into Roosevelt General Hospital last Tuesday for a routine prescription renewal, at which time I was told by the receptionist "Ummm... this could be a problem." Not being a total and complete idiot I responded with "Why?" and got the unwelcome news. Unwelcome in the sense I really liked Dr. Rosales, and further unwelcome in the sense I had to wait almost a week before I could get my meds renewed.
But... not to worry. The meds weren't in a critical condition (I had enough to last me until the end of this week), and stuff happens... people move on. On first blush I have to say I like Dr. Garcia... she's personable, laughs easily, and has a good bedside manner. I think this will be a long and rewarding relationship. Or until she moves on... or until **I** move on.
About my last, above... I've begun having second and third thoughts about this relocation thang. I suppose this is a normal state of affairs, seein' as how one normally doesn't make life-changing decisions on a whim. Today I began itemizing all the hassle involved with moving... address changes, contracting for services at the new location, finding suitable accommodations at the new location, packing, MOVING (as in the physical activity), shutting down the old apartment, yadda, yadda... and wondering if it's REALLY worth it. There's the positive side of the ledger to consider as well, part of which is the fact I've already found apartment listings in Rio Rancho that are cheaper than what we're payin' now... who'd a thunk it? And then there's social opportunities, and all that.
This ain't gonna be EASY.
