Yesterday was a busy day, I did some Christmas shopping, which is kind of boring and frustrating. I then headed to the show, it only took about three hours to get there. Of course as is typical with me, we got there before the opening band played. The show was very energetic and compared to Friday I was in a completely different place. During Pig I just couldn't wipe the smile off of my face. After the show the drive home was difficult because I was so tired, I tried all the tricks of the trade for staying awake including: hot tamales, cold water on the face, fast paced music (not Dave), turning off the heat and cruise control. The stuff apparently worked because I am still here today to talk about it.

Today I am looking forward to relaxing and getting some extra sleep. I have to do some more Christmas shopping and then I think I will go see the new Lord of the Rings movie. I will probably see it a couple times, so I figure why not see it on opening day. In the evening I have to make a trip into Cambridge for BoCaNO. After all this driving over the past couple weeks the mileage has been on an unbelievable pace, the current leader in the contest is Scottie, because the mileage is 4685. Just under two weeks to go and I think I am going to get through almost everybody on the list.

Dave Matthews Band Lyrics of the Day
Song title: Granny
Hello, how are you doing today?
I hope I find you feeling healthy
I'm so glad our paths crossed this time today
On our way into the night

I say it's love, it's hiding deep, deep down inside us all
So maybe, we'll shed a little love from deep inside
Love, it's not so tough if you come admit it too
Well, baby, you're hearts into a thousand pieces dashed

Stop only the old and wise, with clouded eyes
You can't see what I can
'Cause I blindly throw my faith to the face
Of the next pretty girl that comes my way
