November 2010 Archives
The other day, I asked a dreadful question on Twitter about email and other modern conveniences we've come to hate. It brought forth lots of examples of things we hate. This was not the intended result. There are people all day long on television telling us why we should hate people, things and ideas. I really didn't want us all to encroach on that territory. So I pivoted quickly to a new question in the hopes of spitting out the bad taste of the last one. I asked what song (happy, sad or otherwise) immediately improves your mood?
I've posted your answers below. The volume and variety
reminded me of why I am such a huge fan of my Twitter followers. If I didn't
post yours, I'm sorry. There were so many I couldn't keep up with them all.
