Finders Keepers?

i'm so mad, i don't even want to look at you, but i do want to sit near you, i just don't know why
In order to break the tension between us, we're headed for the beach this weekend! We're not really fighting, but we are going to the beach. Yippee!

This morning, waiting for a light to turn green, this is what I saw:
A young woman at the bus stop has her back to me. She bends over the low guard rail and gives something a harder look. She glances over both shoulders and then leans down a little lower to pick it up out of the tall grass. It's a black Nike bookbag. I could see the symbol clearly. Again, she looks over both shoulders and I can see her sifting through it. As I'm about to pull off, I see her wry smile and watch as she turns toward traffic and slips the headphones over her ears.

12 I-Know-Every-Word-to-This-Album CD's I'm Taking on the Roadtrip.
Hank Williams' Greatest Hits (Senior of course)
Cat Power- The Covers
Billy Bragg- The Peel Sessions Album
Neutral Milk Hotel- The Aeroplane Over the Sea
Jolie Holland- Escondida

I don't know if you'll hear from me for a couple of days.

I've got an acute case of beach fever -- you lucky dog. Audrey will love it now that she can walk and splash in the surf. Look forward to seeing the pictures.

Good musical selections. I never tire of Doolittle either, or Tromple la monde for that matter. And Le Tigre is a perfect driving album... and the Detroit Cobras. Oh you are going to have fun. And Audrey will have fun. Pictures! Pictures! We'll miss you tonight but catch up soon? Perhaps next weekend? beck
