Long Absence, Personal Post

Sorry for the long absence, but it's just what happens these days.

Today is just a funny personal story.

For the last year or so, we have been collecting songs that J says he likes and putting them on a playlist on my ipod, which we play in the car most of the time while the dude is riding around with us. He's used to this now, so that when he hears a song he really likes, he asks me to add it to the list.

Because its our car, and we control the radio, generally, these are songs that we also like, which means a lot of the songs are bluegrass, americana, rock, and pop.

However, sometimes he hears a song in a store, on the radio or tv that we wouldn't normally put on with him in the car. This is how we ended up with the theme for the Big Bang Theory on his mix, along with - proudly, I might add - Appalachian Spring, by Aaron Copland (Thank you, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade). But, unfortunately, it is also how, after this morning, his mix and my ipod will now include Every Rose Has Its Thorn by Poison.
