Long and winding road

Jeni and I made it home after a very long four-day weekend. We went up to Toledo to help Don move down to Mississippi. We got to drive through blizzard conditions heading up the WV Turnpike, then avoided a snow storm blowing into Ohio just in time to get down to Mississippi. We almost stopped to visit Mom and Dad but fortunately didn't because they got three inches of snow, too. We drove a total of 2238 miles, and about 36 hours. We're glad to have been able to help Don move, but also happy to be back home.

Music tips

Greg asked for music tips... Lately I've really enjoyed Eric Hutchinson. I'm surprised how much I enjoy his cd. And The Fray are very good, too. And Colbie Caillat. And the song Under Control by Parachute is one of my current favorites. I'll try to come back with links when I get a minute.


Because I'm a geek...

...I find this really interesting.

Misc thoughts

Well, I've been neglecting the blog a bit lately thanks to the lazy random postings on Facebook instead. But just a few thoughts here ...

Lately, I'm feeling more and more like a music junkie again. I got a few iTunes gift cards for Christmas and started visiting the iTunes store more, and taking my iPod with me. Surprise, surprise ... there's actually some good new music out there afterall. I've found a lot thanks to my XM radio. I can't tell you how much I like the satellite radio. Much more than I ever imagined. It's worth the mild monthly rate to not have commercials constantly. Plus I'm hearing music that local commercial radio would never have introduced me to. So thank you, XM.

We were very happy to have LOST back, even if they insist on introducing even more new characters in the final season. As for favorite TV shows, I think 24 has run its course. I'm convinced that the writers have some sort of Jack Bauer Mad Lib that they are using to write the show now because it all seems so formulaic. I keep watching, but this is definitely my time to iron my clothes for the week, because I surely don't have to pay attention anymore.

I had another thought, but I lost it somewhere between the last sentence and this one. Bummer.
