Kinda hard to blame somebody for goin' to a better place

Most of my friends are out of town this weekend. That makes for a boring Friday night. So, I did what I usually do when I'm alone and bored - I went for a drive. I drove across Hoover Dam to Arizona so I could go down by the banks of the Colorado River. It's been a while since I've been near flowing water. It relaxes me. I should do it more often.

On the way back I had to stop at a police checkpoint. They stop everyone to inspect their vehicles to make sure nothing's suspicious looking before allowing people to cross the dam. As I pulled up to the officer, he told me to roll down my window so he could see inside my car. Just then the song Paradise Blues by Eels came on the stereo.

Scary little suicide bomber
On her way to paradise
Gonna take yourself and be with her
Killin' once and killin' twice


Not exactly the best timing.

At least the song..."Sniff sniff...I smell bacon" wasn't playing...Is that a song?

At least you hadn't been drinking or smoking while alone . . . water is probably much better for the health.

And I had to laugh at both the Hannah/Joe Montana post (don't worry, I would have done the same thing and I'm a big, big sports fan) and the smart car one. Good stuff.
