So I'm in Denver. I left Omaha at nine yesterday morning and pulled into the driveway of my brother's house a little after four local time. It was a long drive. My back really started killing me after about four or five hours. I was ready to pop some pain meds while driving, but figured I should wait 'til I got here.
While driving (sorry, no "America @ 80 MPH" photos taken yesterday - you've all seen Nebraska, flatter than a girl with the body of a 12-year-old boy), I went through about nine CDs. I've really mastered the art of switching out CDs while flying down the highway.
My playlist yesterday consisted of:
Bad Religion - All Ages
Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero
Social Distortion - Mainliner, Mommy's Little Monster, Prison Bound, Social Distortion, Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, White Light, White Heat, White Trash, Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll
Tool - 10,000 Days
Yes, I listened to every Social Distortion album I have, in chronological order.
My brother and his wife and kids all seem to be doing well. (I put a picture of my Denver-based niece and nephew on Flickr.) While Bill's at work and Charlize is at school, Luann, Logan and I are gonna go do ... something. Something that'll hopefully tire him out. So I should take off.
More tomorrow night, maybe, from wherever I end up after another day of driving.
