guys. this feels weird to admit, but, i’ve been listening to 1989 a LOT. this coming from someone who never really knew what Taylor Swift was all about until this year – when i started seeing her pop up all over MY internets. of course she has been a mega star forever, but she never infiltrated my own happy internet bubble… until now. you only need to read How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the T.Swift to understand.

so, the soundtrack to today’s Mid Week Distraction might very well be 1989. or not! you could also listen to Rammstein while reading this. whatever floats your boat.
