A while ago I volunteered to go get the ward choir music bound at the local office supply store. I was wandering around trying to find some of those clear covers and plastic spiral bindings and couldn't locate them anywhere. Finally, I spotted a store employee and asked him where to find them.
"Oh, right. Those are online."
"So I have to order them online and then come and have these bound?"
"Uh, no, love. Online."

Today on the drive to school the guy on the radio was talking about Elton John (who just did a concert here last night) and how his favorite song of the evening's performance was Tony Danza. While not a huge Elton fan, I was pretty sure I was aware of most of his songs and surprised that he wrote one about the Who's the Boss actor. Hmmm, interesting. Then he proceeded to play the song: Tiny Dancer. Ohhhhh.

Still finetuning my ears to the nuances of the Australian accent, I suppose, but it's very entertaining in the meantime!
