Breathtaking. Literally.

I'm on a Bob Dylan kick at the moment. Funny thing is, I don't really like his voice and the way he plays harmonica is harsh on the ears, which is usually enough to stop me listening to a person's music. But, I love the way he puts words and melodies together. He is probably the most evocative artist I know of.

You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees
But you will wind up peeking through her keyhole down upon your knees.

I'm also doing a lastfm experiment, by queueing up my entire Sounds directory on random and playing it through, to see what comes up in the stats. It's been going for two days now, and from the looks of things it'll be between 2 and 3 weeks before I get a result. Some of the things are kind of embarrassing. I have an ABBA song, for Chrissake!

Packing for Dargaville is interesting. I know it'll be at least 2 degrees warmer up there. Also, part of me doesn't want to be recognised because that will lead to conversations with people that are all "So what have you been up to?" and "Do you have kids?" etc, and while Dargaville is a place that I lived for 9 years, it's also somewhere I have no desire to reminisce about The Good Old Days in. Tonight the driving starts. I figured it out. We're actually going to spend nearly as much time driving as we will visiting. I'll be offline for a few days as well, so I guess there'll probably be The Longest Post EverTM on Tuesday. With pictures!

I know, you just can't wait, can you?

And then there's this: and this: (I love Yoda. Yoda and Dr Who? Bliss.

Finally, I had some weird kind of mushroom flashback on the bus this morning and started noticing all the brown things. And at least 50% of the people I could see were wearing brown shoes. WTF? Who wears brown shoes by choice?
