Saturday Random Ten on a Wintry, um, Saturday

Tonight while I was waiting to cross the street toward the Providence Place Mall, I heard singing behind me. A chick was singing, not too loud. Specifically, she was singing "I Get a Kick Out of You." More specifically, it was "I Get a Belt Out of You", as sung by Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles.

This is why I have no interest in moving to the country or the suburbs. You miss so much when you're not forced into proximity with your fellow humans.

Yes, you'd be unlikely to overhear a squirrel singing Alvin's set piece. Then again, a trip to the countryside now and then can be refreshing for that reason alone.

Have you seen Avatar in 3D yet? Seeing the woods on Pandora was worth the ticket price.

Huh. No I haven't. I have at least one friend who's seen it, and was pretty blown away.

Actually I have no grudge against the countryside (Although, not being a politician, it doesn't matter as much if people think I do.) But the density of the city is good for people who are natural introverts.

Strange but true that one has more privacy in a city.
