Say the word I'm thinking of

There's been a weird little Internet glitch at work; most of the Internet radio stations don't work at all, or after a long time spent making a connection, play out about three seconds before disconnecting. The only exception, among the stations I've tried, has been Beatlesarama, which is entirely Beatles and ``Beatle-esque'' tunes. I had no idea there were so many covers of ``Got to Get You Into My Life.'' And some mad genius created a grunge-y cover of ``Yesterday,'' which actually works pretty well. Still, it is all a bit too narrow a selection and I'd like to get hear what's happening with Lum and Abner. (Lum, believing himself about to be prosecuted for running an illicit post office and underselling the main post office on stamps, tried to flee to Mexico, which didn't work out at all.) Plus their definition of Beatle-esque includes the theme to Friends, which, you know, in the right mood, if you're thinking of the chipper earliest teen pop stuff, no, really doesn't work.

Word from home is my mother's gotten her new, fresh-weaned and farm-raised, kitten. I know nothing further about it except that at one point I was told she's a calico, and my mother wanted me to suggest a name (sight unseen), and my mind kind of locked up on ``Calico Dave,'' which my mother didn't get because inexplicably she fails to instantly memorize every Get Fuzzy strip ever printed.

Is it petty of me to be glad the basketball finals have gone on to a game seven just because of the really cute way the Channel 5 news anchor says ``Michigan'' with a hard ``ch''?
