Shocked

I canot believe that poor Pacific Coast is still coasting. Not sorry, just shocked. Well, there again it does have a fresh coat of paint so why wouldn't it be on the road?

Irony Rant
A singer named Alanus Morissette had a song called isn’t it ironic. It drove me insane because there was no irony in the song only a series of unfortunate events. It also bothered me that I appeared to be the only one in the country that noticed. It is like referencing Mike Tyson in a song about love, grace and timeless beauty. Than I started to wonder if she put a song together about irony with no irony in it to be cleverly ironic. But then I remembered she was from Canada and probably did not have the necessary mental angst to even understand irony. It was just a lousy song which is not ironic for her.
Rant over
Haha don't worry, you're not the only one.. My GF likes to rant about the exact same thing.. Everytime the song comes on, it's "This song is so stupid, there's nothing ironic in it" *click* (radio off).

Now that is ironic. For Alanis, anyway.
