Brain freeze

I've been busy with endless deadlines and emergency requests at work. I was so tired today that I thought to myself, "I can't remember if the city in Turkey is called Istanbul or Constantinople." Three minutes later, this song came on the radio. It was surreal... for so many reasons.


In other news, I love Gweneth Paltrow. This week's episode of Glee was the first one I've enjoyed this season.


After spending A LOT of time with extreme extroverts lately, I realized that two qualities I really value in others are the ability to think carefully and the ability to listen thoughtfully. I know a lot of people who regularly think things through, and several good listeners, but only two or three people who regularly do both. I really treasure their friendship. I am not always the world's greatest listener myself (the thinking takes over sometimes and I start going off on tangents), so I'm grateful that they put up with me. Introverts FTW!


ain't for city gals said...

I try to listen more carefully also...sometimes when I am talking to someone I find myself not even paying attention and I have to bring myself back to center...most people don't listen...they are thinking about what they are going to say next !

this week's glee just had me tapping my feet the whole time and i still can't get 'singing in the rain' out of my head.
