5 teachers + 4 hours + 3 boroughs = 1 long commute
I only have one complaint about my commute today: radio stations are awful. I mean really, really awful. There were no CDs in the car. None. So we were left with the radio. I suffered through "Feliz Navidad," lots of songs about "blazin' guns," and the sweet, soulful stylings of Lindsay Lohan. I'm a trooper and I made it through. By the time I arrived at work at 11:30 am, my students and I celebrated by singing "July, July!" at the top of our lungs.
El Ten Eleven: Thinking Loudly. Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty are El Ten Eleven. New York City radio stations do not play El Ten Eleven on the radio, and that's a shame. "Thinking Loudly" would have provided the perfect soundtrack while watching the sunrise from the Brookly-Queens Expressway this morning. This song is purely instrumental with highly addictive bass lines and drum beats. No blazin' guns. No pop princess cooing.
