I've Gotta Get Out of This Place

Unemployment and a month (going on 2) stuck in a small condo with my parents in a place so un-me (and so far from anyone else I know) as Miami Beach is leading me deeper and deeper into a most unfavorable state. Not that I don't love them, but I need a break, or at least something to occupy my time.

I give you the Animals (a hit during the Vietnam War...thank you for adding this song to my repertory, "Popular Music of the Vietnam War" capstone paper! That was a good decision on my part):

Every time my navigation says "turn slightly right," Queen ensues:

- "I'm Going Slightly Mad," album: Innuendo

Which reminds me: I love Sirius satellite radio for the Classic Vinyl station, but they are seriouously lacking in the Mercury/May dept. Let's trade some Bob Seger or Jimmy Buffet out for one of the greatest bands of all time. What do you say?

In further news, it's been about 14 days since I've utilized my iPod. I MUST BE going slightly mad!

These directions are given to me upon my return from Scuba-ing in Key Largo. Which means my head then begins playing The Beach Boys' "Kokomo:"

"Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go..."

And yes, this is the muppet version. Why? B/c they introduced me to this greatness when I was a wee little girl. It's absolute brilliance both ways.

Send my regards from Kihei

I've been spending the last 3 days scuba diving and surfing in Kihei. This, of course, means that I've had Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World." And yes, it is a wonderful world I'm livin' in (ignore this: feline feminine fantastical women...).

If you haven't heard this yet, prepare yourself for a much better life to come.
