the days are just packed

My current job is internet-based and doesn't require attention beyond moderating the slackness of my jaw to dam the drool. It ain't such a bad gig when I fill the hours at the keyboard with Ira Glass and the "This American Life" gang, 300 episodes archived and available for FREE here: http://www.thislife.org

Some favorite episodes so far...

RECORDINGS FOR SOMEONE: http://www.thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?sched=1154
The Act I story of a legendary voice-mail is a whole lot of funny.

FIASCO!: http://www.thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?sched=1155
Featuring a story of a production of Peter Pan that went horribly awry

LAST WORDS: http://www.thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?sched=1145
Stories of people's last words before death. (I want to think I'll say something meaningful, but the biographers may be left squeezing meaning out of "oh, shit")
