Certain songs just remind me of driving so much. Like "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult. I used to listen to that song so much in the car.
Something I love about Meat Loaf's songs are they are all so epic. I mean epic! songs here. They all tell a story in this power ballad-esque fashion. So dramatic. Love it, love it. And have you ever seen the videos? I watched "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" online. Intense!
I am reading The Count of Monte Cristo for book club. This book is so compelling! And gripping. Parts of it I just read and read and can't put it down. We are reading the unabridged version, so getting through all of the obviously extra stuff has been a bit hard. Have definitely gone through a lull, so glad that's over. It's my brother's favorite book, and I can definitely see why. I'm nearly halfway through, so only 700 pages to read by Saturday (gasp!). I can do it.
The Bears won today. Woot!
I so enjoy listening to Pandora. I have a station called "Southern Comfort" and it always manages to play the most perfect songs. Yes, I did just say "most perfect."
I so want to learn to play the guitar. So I can play "Classical Gas" and have it sound absolutely amazing. In my dreams though.
Today's quote (can't believe I keep forgetting a quote!) will come from Mr. Aday:
"And some days I pray for silence/And some days I pray for soul/Some days I just pray to the god/Of sex and drums and rock and roll"
