it's that time of year again...


Oh, lord...it's pledge drive time. I do realize that NPR stations are listener supported and that I am the public in public radio and all of that...but I'm still annoyed by the pledge drive. Mostly because they keep interrupting the programming. I like my news and information to flow...

At any rate, I did the right thing and made my donation. I do listen to Morning Edition every weekday (pretty much all morning, actually...clock radio, radio in the shower, car radio on the way to work) so I should do my part and kick them a few bucks.

While I was in the giving spirit today, I also bought a Florida State Parks Annual Pass (mostly to compensate for my usage of the Lake Overstreet Trails) and a Tallahassee Museum Membership (although it will always be the Junior Museum in my heart). Tallahassee fun galore!

I always donate what I can to V89, because I listen to it more than NPR. If I had fat cash, I'd give to both.

Also, I was just at the Junior Museum last week. I'm 31, and I swear I still go out there at least a couple times a year. Sometimes with out of town guests, and sometimes just to see the critters.

I go to the museum about that often myself. It's just so nice to wander around out there.

Also, I used to be a DJ at V89 back in the day, so I save a little love for them too.
