My Own Private Death Cab


Tonight as the sun set upon the beautiful venue of Red Butte Gardens, a band was greeted by cheers as they walked out into the summer night and onto the stage. Please welcome... Death Cab for Cutie!
I like to imagine they opened with Bixby Canyon Bridge, one of my favorites. I was not in attendance. (Place sad face emoticon here) It was sold out. I would have driven up to Research Park to see if I could free-load and listen to the songs floating on the breeze over the foothills, but I thought I should continue to feverishly paint the bedroom (previously posted). My old friend Carol is coming to see me for the first time and I want her to stay in the nice, new room.
I opened the window to the summer breeze and as I painted, I listened to Narrow Stairs on Steve's little Sony boombox. I wish I could say it was almost like being there.
But have a listen and enjoy!

This sounds like something the young people at work would enjoy.

Now I remember, I was going to ask if you said no to the camping trip. This is what you do:
"I've decided I'm not going."
"Why?"

"Because I don't want to."

"That's not a reason."

"It's a reason to me. I don't want to and I'm not going."

"You never want to go anywhere."

"I'm not going to argue. I'm not going."

"This is something I think we should do as a family."

"I'm not going."

"Don't you think you could sacrifice for us as a family?"

"No."

"So you're going to be like that and not go? Just like that."

"Yes. Just like that. I'm not going."

Just keep saying no. Wish I could be there to help you through it.

Oh, and I love Anne Tyler, too! I have all her books. She has another coming out soon, I can't remember exactly.
