Carpenters for the public.

currently: lying in bed listening to "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay

So...the time is 1:49pm, Monday.
Aka, the time where I normally have Media Studies.
But thanks to the awesome bipolar weather - I came home at lunch, with a major case of hayfever and brain malfunctino.

I was planning to sleep now, but there's just no point.
Not when outside my bedroom walls, men are currently digging a hole in the floor in a typical loudwiththedrillingandthehammeringandbreakingofthings fashion.

And so lying in bed, with my headphones on loud seems the best thing to do.

Have to say though, I'm quite excited that this will all be done soon. Construction I mean. Cause the water is still off at the moment and so when mum picked me up from the school sickbay, we had to use the public toilets at the local town centre.

STRANGEST things ever, let me tell you.
If I had my camera, I would have taken a photo.
They've got these bright colourful pieces of artwork painted on the side. All flowers and green plants.
Then the toilet room itself...it's all electronic.
So you open the door, and it speaks "Door is now open."
I'm like 'Well okay then...thats pretty normal."
Closing the door, it goes "Door is now closed. Please click the button to the right to lock." So I do that.
"Door is now locked."
And then bizzarely, music starts playing. And you know, it's not like the radio or anything. It's "Close To You" by The Carpenters. You know, the song that goes:

"Why do birds suddenly appear? Every time that you are near...."


WHY out of all songs do you CHOOSE this song?!
I mean don't get me wrong, it's a nice song. And it's nice that you have some music playing.
But while someone is doing their "business", you get romantic love music played to you about how birds are appearing every time you are near.
Is it cause they know some people like to use public toilets as a *cough* "romantic" love making spot? And they cater for these people with The Carpenters?
And then they forget that other people that actually use the toilets for the FUNCTION of the toilets are stuck listening to romantic love music.

Yeah I'm sorry. It's a little weird.

But then again, it's better than having Jimmy Eat World's "The Middle" played to you in the toilets.
"It just takes some time,
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything, everything will be just fine,
Everything, everything will be alright"



Now. That would be awkward.
