Music, withdrawal symptoms and thoughts of business

I wonder how long I can resist going out and buying the Sunday papers, I seem to be suffering from withdrawal symtoms. It must have somthing to do with the fact that in essence I am a news junkie. I read most news papers I can lay my hands on, I read almost all the news magazines , and I am addicted to the news channels, CNN, SKY, BBC and SABC Africa. What can I say, I enjoy knowing what is happening around me. I half expect that if I don’t know is going on, I will be lost. I think this fixation with the news started a long time ago, but was really hightened with the CNN coverage of the first Gulf War. By the time of the 9/11 incidents I was really hooked. I actually missed most of the first few hours of the 9/11 attacks because I was on a plane going away on business. I only learnt of the attacks once I phoned home to talk to my wife. I remember that day so clearly, early in the day there was an eclipse of some sort. Like most global events, I am certain that most people will remember the exact location they were when they first heard about the attacks, similarly, I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard that Nelson Mandela was going to be released from prison. The moment not only lives with you for the rest of you life, but also shapes you in some ways. Do you remember where you were when you heard about the death of Princess Diana, or about the tsunami on 26 Dec 2004?
Instead of reading the papers, I am relaxing with a cup of coffee, and I am listening to a CD by Josh Groban. After that I think I will listen to some mellow jazz, maybe something by Gene Harris, (old stuff but really good).
I am trying not to think about my business today, but it is always there in the back of my mind. Maybe tomorrow I will make some headway with new business, I am really looking for a breakthrough here. I am an estate agent/property consultant, but what I really want to do is property development.

Sunday newspapers

I did not buy the newspapers today, just to see what I would miss out on if I did not read the papers for a day. My local shop will still have them tomorrow, so if I feel that indeed I missed out on anything than I can always go back and read on Monday. I suspect that I will not even miss out on anything. I expect that the papers will concern itself with the the Deputy President, the G8 debt relief program.
