I Just Wanna Fly

Except I DON'T! Ugh. I had a terrible week of fraternization with United, Northwest, and American Airlines. Matt Hoopes and I combined for a mind shattering 30+ hours of delayed flights since last Sunday (his overnight stint in Philly helps exaggerate the statistic quite a bit). We almost missed shows, we spent an unearthly amount of time sitting in gate areas, and we actually had to skip a leg of a flight and rent a car to reach a destination. I'm about to drive home from Nashville, and I couldn't be happier that the tires of my car are staying on the ground. Air travel has become such a hassle these days. Its kind of sad, but Matt has to fly to San Diego today for some vacation. I think the last thing he wants to do is to put his tray table up, and make sure his seat back is in the upright and locked position.

I had a really awful show last night. We were in OKC, and Johnny Raincloud decided to relieve himself all over my electronic gear. My gear, upset about getting wet, decided to the best way to exercise some revenge was to cease operations. Boo.
I need a hug.

Put your arms around me baby
Put your arms around me baby

when you said
"I need a hug"
I saw your face in my mind, and you were making the puppy dog face!

I definitely want to give you a hug.

(in fact, even before I read this, I was planning on asking you for a hug at the concert I'm going to!!!!)

Can't wait to see you guys!
38 more days!!!!

That really sucks that ur equipment got soaked! I would cry if my bass got rained on.(not really, but I would be upset) Just wanted to let u know ur song High of 75 always picks me up when I'm feelin down. (And A song called "Suddenly" by hellogoodbye) take a listen, they're great!! Ur blogs are possibly the most random things ever, but quite hilarious. I'm a giganormous fan (that's gigantic and enormous combined) can’t wait 4 the Christmas Album! Love the writing, and hope to come halfway close to writing like urs in my songs. I know u prolly know this verse, but when I'm feelin down, it helps: Hebrews 12:1-3 Well, God bless u and the group!
