…tomorrow brings, I’ll be there.
with open arms and open eyes.

How you doing? Good, I hope. I’m doing fine… just really busy in the real world. Taking time out to reach out and touch is important though…
I was on my way home from work today (Thursday) when I decided to just make a beeline to the grocery to pick up some essentials. Feeling to hang about a bit, I went to the movies right after, where I took in Shia in “Eagle Eye”. Good movie… go see it if you can. I really wanted to catch “Traitor” with my boy Don Cheadle, but I think it finished its run in local cinemas on Wednesday.
Close to being on my way home, and being bored with what I was hearing on the radio, I changed stations, and heard the opening bars of one of my favourite songs …
I was a teen when “Slippery When Wet” came out, and I practically wore out the album on my cassette player. Top notch lyrics and music, even though Rock wasn’t really my thing. I had the windows up and the AC on, so I sang without a care in the world as I drove by my house a few times at about 5 klicks/hr. Bon Jovi really knows how to perform (and write) a tune.
If that wasn’t bad enough, just as I was about to stop and get out to open the gate, the DJ followed it up with this song. Man, I just got back in my car, put my foot back on that accelerator and continued driving… and singing!
This song introduced me to Incubus, and I like it for the melody, lyrics and instrumentation. The original video was tight too, and well, original. I’d have embedded it here, but I couldn’t find a copy that could. It’s here, though.
Today was just a good day.
I got a chance to go to Tobago last weekend with my girlfriend, and I took some pictures of Mount Irvine (pronounced Irving) Bay Hotel, the beach and some other things. Look out for them on Bobolee Pix soon. I think I took over 200 pix, and it’ll take me a while to sort, pick and watermark the best of the best.
Peace and Rice, folks!
