So I wasn't going to post any more of my trip log because A) it took too long and B) all of the pictures fucked up after a day anyway BUT then Nate expressed interest at wanting to know what else I listed to so as per his request I decided to post it again. Plus, he's letting me stay with him when I first move to NYC so I'll do whatever he says. Right, Nate?! :)
So I left Kelly's obviously a bit sad and decided to listen to something that reminded me of him a bit, cause I'm a moper like that. So in popped Alanis Morissette's "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie"
It was really the best cd ever that early in the morning and it did me wonderfully.
So after SFIJ I decided to listen to “Les Mis” but my cd started skipping during the work song and I wasn’t about to have that so I took it out.
Les Miserable indeed.
After that I was still in the theater mood so I put in “Wicked.”
You know, I really think that “Wicked” is one of my most favorite musicals ever. It really is just phenomenal.
After “Wicked” I decided to be daring and put in an episode of “Sex and the City” to kind of watch in the background while I was driving. I had my portable dvd player right there next to me and I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. Well, I probably wasn’t paying as much attention to the road as I should have and got pulled over in Kansas. $138 ticket later, I was back on the road and NOT in a very good mood. So....
...I listened to “I’m Not Dead” by P!nk. It’s a GREAT cd when you’re angry!
After P!nk I needed something to calm me down so I put in Tori Amos’ “American Doll Posse.”
Then I listened to “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson.
Then I was tired of singing so I listened to the HilArious “Debbie Does Dallas.”
If you need to laugh--get this cd. It’s so so so funny and Sherie Rene Scott is priceless on it.
After that I listened to a mix that TJ made for me. And I love it.
My OBC recording of RENT skips like a mother in any cd player so I had to settle for the movie version after that.
Is it as good? No, of course not. Does it do the trick if I need a “Rent” fix? Yup.
I tried listening to some Dashboard Confessional after that but I’ve discovered that I don’t really like them and apparently I get bored by them because they came right out after three songs.
Only to be replaced by a less than par version of “Into the Woods.”
It’s the revival version from 2002. I bought it because I love Vanessa Williams’ singing voice. I never listen to it because I hate Vanessa Williams on it. Go figure.
So after 10.5 LONG hours, I finally got to Columbia, MO and my luxurious hotel room at the Red Roof Inn. Went to bed early, and that was that. Day two definitely took a toll on me. After that much driving I was just ready to be HOME already.
This post is disjointed because I tried to include pictures and then I pasted my text and the pictures didn't copy. Blogspot and I are totally fighting right now.
