A Perfect Sunday

Today's just one of those great days that only come so often. The weather is beautiful outside. Blue skies, about 55 degrees, and no humidity. Just went to the coffee shop to get an iced mocha and enjoyed the car ride. I normally hate being in my car, but there are somedays when a good drive with good music, a cup of coffee to go, and a beautiful day are just plain enjoyable.

I've found that the new Shins CD fits perfectly to any mood. A feat in itself. Last night, as I left Pan's Labyrinth (which is still floating about in my head) a song from the CD was on that fit just perfectly as the song that one should listen to after seeing Pan's Labyrinth. It's number 8 on the CD, can't remember the name right now. And today their music went perfectly with this beautiful weather.

Rest of the plans for the day include going to target to see if I can get my watch resized, reading a book, and hopefully catching a new episode of the simpsons and family guy tonight. Only bummer about today is that there are no football games on....even more specifically: no Saints on :(

Like the new site look by the way. I listened to a little bit of the Shins online last night. Good stuff!

Glad you like them :) I've been playing around with the site. I want to re-do the banner, but I know nothing about HTML. I'd like to add my own pic to it. I was going to switch to wordpress just for that, but I think I'll stick with Blogger for now.

Pamela, I figured that you liked the cd! It's so good! from beginning to end, I love it all. My fave as of now is the first song.

yeah, its interesting because it's not what i expected at all. I have a friend who worked at piety street when they last played here and they recorded a bunch of stuff "for this album" that sounded like their previous albums. But then again, I read somewhere that this album was greatly influenced by the turbulance in mercer's neighborhood due to the presence of a crack house. or that all may be nonsense - haven't had to fact check for them.
