• Quick Rant

    Went into Target today to apply for one of their credit cards. None of my Canadian credit counts down here, so I have to start with department stores.
    This involved filling out a big form with my address, social security number, birth date, home phone, work phone, previous address, and other details. My application was rejected because I didn’t have a US driver’s license with a picture yet. That’s fine, I didn’t meet their requirements. But then they wanted to keep my rejected application. *That* I had a problem with. They said they’d keep it in their safe for me. I said that I wanted it back. They wouldn’t give it to me. I asked why, and the best answer they could give me (and believe me, it’s not very good) was that it’s store policy. Ugh.
    Meta-rant: I never had any rants before I started blogging.

  • New music: Sheryl Crow: C’mon C’mon

    So whilst at Target picking up an 25′ phone extension cord so I could place my computer anywhere in my tiny apartment, I picked up Sheryl Crow‘s new album, “C’mon C’mon” for $13.99. That’s $20.99 Canadian. Yikes.
    But it’s worth every penny. Every song on the album is strong melodically and lyrically, and of course, features Sheryl Crow’s strong vocals. I found this album begging me to play it again. I can’t wait to play it in my car.
    There’s a number of pleasant production/arrangement surprises on the album too. I won’t spoil it here, though. Just go buy it already. 🙂
