November 15, 2003

Hi. I’m this terrifically huge brick building that’s over a hundred years old. But I really wanted to make it on Broadway.

It’s the little things that really make life fun. Like the fact that the Laxalt State Building, in downtown Carson City, just a few blocks from my office, has bells that chime out the hour. But it doesn’t just play a standard chime, followed by six dongs, or anything like that. The bell tower plays showtunes at the top of the hour. That is so goddamned excellent. You can hear them for a mile in each direction. Right now it’s playing “Singing In The Rain”. Last week when we were going to dinner it was “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. I hear these things all day when I’m at work, but I never stopped to appreciate how brilliant it is. I’m going to have to start keeping track of all the songs it plays.
