This is a test

I’m still here, I’m just processing life events from a different timezone! I don’t know when any TV is! Did you think I was dead!?

p.s. I do take a perverse pleasure in meaningless posts that make me sound like an idiot. That's the true glory and purpose of blogs. Unless someone I want to hire me reads it and thinks I actually am an idiot, in which case joke's on me.

p.s.2. here's my KARI's GOT A CAR* playlist, which I dial up at top volume every time I drive my car. I'm sure you'll agree it was worth buying a car for:

  • It's All Coming Back to Me Now / Celine Dion
  • Wild Montana Skies / John Denver & Emmylou Harris
  • Beautiful Noise / Neil Diamond
  • Super Trouper / ABBA
  • Seasons in the Sun / Terry Jacks
  • The Night Chicago Died / Paper Lace
  • Billy, Don't Be a Hero / Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods
  • Calypso / John Denver
  • Total Eclipse of the Heart / Bonnie Tyler
  • Against All Odds / Phil Collins
  • Jessie's Girl / Rick Springfield
  • Some Nights / Fun.
  • Spirit in the Sky / Norman Greenbaum
  • Walking On a Thin Line / Huey Lewis & The News
  • Good Mornin' Life / Dean Martin
  • Delta Dawn / Tanya Tucker
  • Candle on the Water / Helen Reddy
  • Single Ladies / Beyoncé
  • Pay Me My Money Down / Bruce Springsteen
  • American Girl / Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
  • One Day at a Time / Gloria Estefan
  • Party in the USA / Miley Cyrus
  • Badlands / Bruce Springsteen

Upon reflection, this is clearly a terrible playlist. But plenty of things in life are terrible, and this is relatively harmless, therefore no excuses. Go Colin Hanks!**

*/** I decided to name my new car "Colin Hanks"; i.e., it's not necessarily what you wanted, but it's close enough and maybe even better than you'd expect.
