Vacation Day Blues #2
I had a four day weekend. The worst thing about taking days off is going back. I'm never in a worse mood than the day I have to go back to work after being off. Every small problem or issue that occured while I was going seems 10 times worse than it probably was. Oh well, back at it. There's inventory Wednesday, going through reports on Thursday then I'm off to the Dylan concert Thursday night at the Palace. Why the Foo Fighters are opening up for him is beyond my comprehension, but that's okay, I probably won't get there early enough to see them anyway.
My oldest sister has continued her lifelong mission to emberass me well into adulthood, see here. At least Sophia didn't kick me or laugh at me, although I did see a smirk on her face. At least now, when I'm a grouchy ol' uncle, I can tell her "I changed your diaper, you little smartass...".
The green ball has been neglected during the Tigers playoff run, so back at it tonight.
Five Favorite Songs of the Day
No Man's Land-Sufjan Stevens, The Avalanche
Everytime I see one of those signs on the beach that says "Private Property, No Trespassing" I think of the great Woody Guthrie song, "This Land is Your Land". I saw a sign that said no trespassing, but on the other side, it didn't say nothing, that side was made for you & me...This song is pretty good too.
Here's to Richard Nixon-Phil Ochs, the Stable, East Lansing 1973
Uncle John's Band-the Grateful Dead, Workingman's Dead
Daylight-Drive By Truckers, A Blessing & a Curse
Quite fitting for driving home from work in the dark.
While We Still Have the Daylight, I might look these lessons in the eye.
While We Still Have the Daylight, I might become some brand-new kinda guy.
The Truckers are the cat's ass...
We Built Another World-Wolf Parade, Apologies to the Queen Mary
Only Skin Be a Woman-Joanna Newsom, Green Man's Festival 2005
15 minutes of shrieking beauty.
Okay, so it's six.
Happy Monday, friends, keep it real!
