Today is a blank day - calendar wize speaking.  I'm totally fine with that.  It's very chilly and I'm sitting on the bed surrounded by a fluffy comforter.  Zoey is sacked out in one of the comforter valleys.  Nice.

I'm listening to the news on NPR and getting increasing irritated at their slant on today's news stories. My journalism professors are, I'm sure, all dead and they should be so grateful. They would stoke out at the state of today's journalism. I had one guy who used to bring in newspaper clippings and recordings of tv/radio news and rail at the number of emotional adjectives.  They were really few and far between.

Today, news reports - on tv and radio and even in print - are full of words like tragic and wholesome and scandalous and heartfelt. These, according to my professors, have no business in professional news reporting - editorials, yes, news reporting no.

Of course, my last journalism course was in 1971.  Things change...

I just changed the channel to Pandora - way better.

Swimming today is at 11.  I have no errands or any todos before or after today.

My yarn source is having free shipping for the next couple of weeks so I'll put together a new yarn order. I need to check my stash and make sure I've got a nice balance of colors - maybe I'll do that today.

I just interrupted this entry with way too much mindless internet surfing. If I don't get up now and do my breathing drugs, I'll spend the rest of the day panting...  On it.
