I have finally made it to my last eccentricity! Well, I suppose it's not my last, but the last one I will write about. Eccentricity #6 is the fact that I own a record player. I purchased it maybe 4 years ago when I lived in Regina at a garage sale. It cost me 5 dollars, and it actually works! I own a small collection of records, which I sometimes add to when I stop by the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Red Deer. Some of my favourite records include...Bullfrogs and Butterflies, Wham!, Huey Lewis and the News, and The Beach Boys...Thrown into the mix is a little disco and even a Mini-pops album! My brother has some great records in Vancouver...Poison, Metallica, Motley Crue, but I think most of them are unopened...party pooper! I would love to find a few albums from one of my all-time favourite bands who always take me back to my memories of Jr. High school....Def Leppard! Lately I've been struggling, trying to figure out if I should actually get rid of this rather large contraption...My living room would look so much trendier if I put a nice shelf in it's place. But on the other hand, if it got relegated to the spare room, it may never be used again. And although people may wonder just which decade I'm stuck in when they walk into my house, it is something that sets me apart from pretty well everybody I know, and it's a great conversation piece. So should I enter the world of contemporary decorating, or enjoy the strange albums I have found tucked away at the second hand store? ...Anyone care to listen to a little Air Supply?
