:: Tuesday, March 25, 2003 ::

I went to work again at The Tribune. Today, my assignment was to investigate the impact of the Mozart Festival on the economy of San Luis Obispo County. I have never written a story for the business section of the newspaper, so it was a neat experience. I also got to check out a report that some gas stations had been charging for air and water; there is a state law that requires all gas stations to provide air and water free of charge to customers. So I checked out the problem, and it turns out that someone had misread a gas station’s policy, which required customers to go to the check-out counter to obtain a token, which could then be deposited into the machine for air and water. It turns out it was a non-story.

After work, I had some free time, so I watched TV and wasted time online. I then took my sister to her violin lesson and watched her practice, which was a neat experience. I had no idea she was so good on the violin, but I should never have doubted her because she is such an excellent musician.

Subsequent to the music lesson, a bunch of dear friends came by to visit, so we went to my grandparents’ house and had a good time with lots and lots of candy. Oh, and I got to serve bottled water, too. (Such is the high-quality service one receives when he or she visits the house... hint hint... visit more often.)

These past few days, I had downloaded a lot of sappy, lovey-dovey power pop ballads, so I finally put them on a CD. Some songs on the CD: “Dreaming of You” by Selena, “I Knew I Loved You” by Savage Garden, “Your Song” from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, “Drowning” by the Backstreet Boys, and “I Lay My Love On You” by Westlife.
