New month, new something or other.

Nth day of inbound sales training, and i'm beginning to forget who i am. I find myself having to be reminded that i was hired for an entirely different department, and that i can pretty much negate 1/3 of the banter that goes on in the classroom. Today we had a team leader from the sales floor come in and do a little Q&A with us, and i believe that at one point, it almost came to fisticuffs when they decided to bombard the poor man with questions about "commission structure". So i sat there, pen in my mouth, trying to focus.

And now i'm sitting at home, listening to a recording that i made off the radio back in 1994. It's a group of songs from a radio show called Open House Party that i believe is still on the air somewhere in this country. The only reason that it holds any significance, however, is because all of these songs remind me of a specific time in my life. In 1994, as a lad of 15 years, i recorded this album 2 days before i left for EFY. And as i sit here 8 years later and listen to my tape, i still feel the same as i did that night.

Ah, what the heck...here is the play list.

Title - Artist
1. Harmony - Erasure
2. You Spin Me - Dead or Alive
3. What's Up? - Four Non Blondes
4. Amazing - Aerosmith
5. Oh What a night! (really, i have no clue who did this rendition, but it was really big at all the church dances back then...)
6. Happy Nation - Ace of Base
7. We Will Rock You (Techno Mix) - Queen
8. Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden
9. 100% Pure Love - Crystal Waters
10. Show Me Love - Robin S
11. Regulate - Nate Dogg & Warren G

A stellar line up.
