There are a lot of huge big transport trucks on the road to work with me every morning, and I can't help thinking about Transformers when I see these things. Especially when it's dark out, their head lights look like Transformer eyes. Some trucks look like friendly Autobots, some are definitely Decepticons. I have to admit, commuting with Transformers all around me is rather exciting. Transformers have not talked to me yet, and for my sanity's sake I kinda hope they never will. They do roar, but I figure that's just normal and everyone else can hear the roar, too.
In my last two lab jobs we didn't listen to the radio or anything, but at my co-op lab radio listening is allowed. It's nice to have some background music, but in a big open lab this can also be a problem. I'll just say that people like different kinds of music. At least no one is listening to country!!! Girl next to me loves the top ten hits, and listens to a radio station that plays them. On Monday I didn't mind, even though I heard couple of the songs twice. On Tuesday it started to bother me a bit to hear the same crap over and over again. Not crap, really. Some of the music is ok, but when you hear it million times a day, it starts to suck. It's Friday now, couple of the hits are playing in my head even when I get home, and I'm really hoping the next person who will work the station next to mine next week likes some other kind of music. Why don't I choose the channel then, you might ask. I have tried, but after about an hour the station magically gets changed. I try not to make enemies since I'm the unworthy student, so I'll just let my ears and brain bleed. They'll heal eventually.
