listening: Tracy Chapman :: Crossroads :: This Time (you know you know the lyrics often sung through a veil of bitter tears..."this time I won't show I'm vunerable, this time I won't give in first, this time I will hold out with my love, this time I will not be hurt, I'm gonna love myself more than anyone else, I'm gonna treat me right...", don't you just feel Tracy has been crushed and screwed over by every woman in town?)
reading:Hot Jobs, Monster and BrilliantPeople - ugh.
watching: Bigger is Better :: Classic John Summers/Matt Sterling (Rick Donovan, Matt Ramsey, Doug Stevens - woof, how porn should be - well at least I'll be watching and enjoying as soon as I finish this blog)
flying: Newark (EWR), NJ. - then off to Parsippany (I doubt I spelled that right, but I haven't had enough of forementioned "beverage" to get up and go look for a map or dictionary - please continue to love me despite my unforgiveable spelling), NJ to meet my boyfriends parents.
dreading: Refer to "flying" and forementioned final destination.
packing: Conservative Son-in-Law wear :: Banana Republic wearables (Brown Stretch Short Sleeve, Brown Irish Linen Long Sleeve, Green Polo Shirt, Black 3 Button Suit with a Dress shirt and Tie that's colors only a BR employee could explain but do work well together - and several pairs of their clever boxer shorts (yes folks - "boxers" never briefs, and more frequently when no In-Laws are around - "Commando" -definately "Commando"), Kenneth Cole wearables (Black/Square-Toe/Dress Ankle Boot, Brown/Reaction/Camper Shoe, Brown V-neck/Wool-Acrylic Blend/Sweater - ya never know East Coast weather), Big Star wearables (2 pair - 1976/Digger/Vintage Blue - 1 Indigo, 1 Faded to perfection)
feeling: A bit out of sorts
hoping: To sort out the forementioned "feeling"
running: Late, need to hit the gym, pick-up the suit from dry cleaners, go buy a new black BR belt to replace the one somewhere on a dance floor in Orlando, Fl., finish packing, jerk-off, shower and get to airport by Noon.

You packed your books last week, you broke with the past tonight.
I hope you find some beach house on the coast out there with plenty of light.
Cause I know the road is very long, but in my head I'll always hold your song, and I'll keep a good thought for you.
I'll keep a good thought for you.
You left us 'The Best of Frank' and on the back you signed your name.
'One For My Baby' was underlined again.
Now I know the road is very long, but in my head I'll always hold your song, and I'll keep a good thought for you - if you're lonely think of me. I'll keep a good thought for you - If you're lonely think of me.
There's a couple you knew quite well, they moved away last spring, and though he can't find suits they don't miss much of anything.
They're raising a baby now.
At least that's one gift that this world allows.
And I'll keep a good thought for you.
Cause I know the road is very long, but in my head I'll always hold your song, and I'll keep a good thought for you - if you're lonely think of me.
