I’ve sunk really low. And if I don’t tell someone about it, I’ll burst. I am addicted to amazon.com.It’s been bad, up to now, but never as bad as last night.Or should I say, in the wee hours of this morning. Like 2:30 a.m. to be precise.
I am a light sleeper anyway. Well, I went to bed around 10-ish, and sometime around 2-ish, I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. I have a radio with little headphones next to my bed, always tuned in to the local National Public Radio station which usually has the BBC broadcasting overnight. A lot of nights I will not be able to sleep and will put the headphones in my ears and just lie there til I fall asleep again.
That’s what I did last night/early this morning.
Well, there was this great interview show on – the interviewer was chatting with a woman who had the most luscious sounding voice. At first I didn’t recognize her. Then they played a bit of a new song from her latest CD and oh-my-gawd – she was so good. I love a good voice, and she had one. I almost thought it was familiar, though …
So they never said who she was, assuming we already knew that, since we should have been listening from the beginning. I wanted that CD! After a while, and listening to him ask her all kinds of questions, little things came out that led me to realize it was an old favourite of mine – Nanci Griffith!
She is most famous for a song she did called “From A Distance” – but she has a ton of songs under her belt. She’s country, but also other genres, as well. Mostly country and folk I guess.
I listened to a couple more of the cuts from this new album of hers, and each one was just beautiful.
So I got up, turned my computer ON, and ordered it online! At 2:30 a.m.!
I am so low!
I’ve been trying to break this habit of buying things I see and want, and I would go for extended periods of being really good, but lately, I can’t seem to stop myself. And I can’t afford to be doing this all the time either! I work hard for my money, and it needs to stop!
But not until I get my Nanci Griffith CD in the mail! I can’t wait!
