"We're on the road to nowhere"

Because we're heading from Jamestown, NY to Newtopia today.

This is supposed to take nine hours, so last night I downloaded the eighteen hour-long unabridged audiobook version of Barchester Towers. Which is twice as much audiobook as I need. But if it's really engrossing, I'll drop my family off at the house and drive back to Jamestown.

Yes, I really am that in love with Simon Vance.


  1. NO! Go 18 hours in the OTHER direction.

  2. Do your kids listen too or are they plugged into something else?

  3. Liking the Talking Heads reference. If I've got a song stuck in my head, at least it's a good one.

  4. While in Jamestown, did you visit the childhood home of Lucille Ball?

  5. You're hilarious. I lauhed out loud. I hope you do drive back.


  6. I never listen to books on tape because I can't ever finish them before I arrive. Instead I watch tv on my ipod.

    I have a lot of accidents.
