Annoying lady at work yammered on and on about the need for more microwaves in the break room (There are only two) while using one of the two for a full fifteen minutes while she nuked each of her food items separately during the busiest lunch time of the day.  Grrr.

Do you mean folk/childhood songs?  If so, then no.  People don't learn them anymore.

True. 

I read somewhere, several years ago, that it has even impacted children's literacy.  Back when I was in kindergarten, for example, most, if not all, elementary classrooms had a piano or other source of music in the classroom.  The little ones would sit or stand around the music source and sing or recite nursery rhymes as a part of most days.

Sometime after I left primary school, schools here "got serious" about early elementary education and removed the music in an effort to find more time for serious things, like math and reading.

Problem?  Small children weren't just having fun by singing and reciting rhymes.  They were learning basic pre-reading skills, such as the cadence of language.

I understand that one I have felt that this way this week-end. I wonder if it is something to do with the moon Tongue

For me, it was working a bunch of days straight after having been off from work on disability for a while.  I managed to keep myself going each day but, as soon as I had real time off, my body kicked in and demanded some real rest.

I feel much better today.  Smiley

Really irritating lady at grocery store decided to body block every single thing I was shopping for.  Grr.   She was one aisle ahead of me every step of the way.

So spoiled by being on leave from work for a while.  Now going to work feels like the exception.  It feels like every day should be vacation.

Must pursue entrepreneurship ...
