Let's Sway to the Rhythm of Love

1. Bought Dragon Age Origins last night.
2. Started playing it at ten, intending to stop at midnight.
3. I'm thankful for great games that suck you in so well that you don't notice how much time has elapsed until you've reached level 8 and realize that you shouldn't be able to get to level 8 in an evening, and you look at the clock, and realized that you've played for about seven hours.  Thank you EA games.

I was driving home from school and had a sudden realization.  It happened when this song came on, so give a listen while you're reading this.

It's warm here today.  Absolutely beautiful really.  The sky is blue, and I couldn't help but roll down the windows to my manual Kia Sephia while driving home from school.  My door handle has no paint (because we didn't feel like paying for it), the rear view mirror comes from some other make because mine broke off and I had to get another from the junk yard.  I have lady bug seat covers because my wife drove it through college.  The summer tires for my wife's car are stacked in my backseat with white plastic wrapped around them so they don't make my car too dirty.  And all I can think about is how great it feels to have the sun on my face and the wind in my hair.

I pulled up to a stop light, and looked in my mis-modeled rear view.  In it, I saw a red mustang.  I looked closer and saw a guy in sun glasses with the top down, obviously enjoying the sun.

Then, I couldn't hold back a smile when I realized that, rich or poor, young or old, bond or free, Mustang or Sephia, we're all in this together.

Let's act like it.

Have a nice day.


  1. Yup. Your car has "character".:)
    Liked the post and waiting for a post on gaming, I'll be putting one up eventually. Haven't played Dragon's Age, keep hearing it's great, but didn't like the graphics.

    Haven't seen you around in a while, what happened?

  2. This was a great "Spring Has Come" post. It is nice to see other people getting warmer weather.

  3. your car sounds so AWESOME hehe.
    Love the song!!

  4. WHat a gorgeous little song :)

    Don't you love those "Life's Beautiful" moments?

  5. Any time this song comes on it makes me feel happy and smiley. It must just be how they did it. Makes me bob my head.

    Also, I have been driving with my windows down for a couple months now...something about that makes me happy as well.

    And we ARE all in this together. I love 'it' and I love everyone in 'it' with me :)

  6. @AC
    Just busy guy. I barely have time to post. I'm actually writing up a character bio for another campaign we're starting where I will be a player. Dragon Age is the bomb dot com. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone who likes RPG's.

    Haha, sorry you're not getting any. It'll come. It snowed here yeasterday if that makes you feel any better.

    Thanks, I like her.

    I really do. I've been having a lot lately.

    I want to live where you do SO bad, but my wife loves Utah. Regardless, I also love everyone in this with me. It's nice to have them.
