mi familia

I took off a little early from work to get my plates for the Toyota and have the Sexy Saturn towed away to the happy hunting ground that is the A&C junkyard. I felt a little twinge of sadness seeing it go because it really was my first car, and it reminds me of how my world has opened so much in the past two years when I got my license and finally was able to quit my part-time Hell Job in Sticksville and be somewhere pretty awesome.

But then I remembered that I now have a CD player with a better stereo system and ended up finally picking up copies of Massive Attack's "Mezzanine" and Morcheeba's 'Who Can You Trust?' at the Record Exchange in Parma because I've been on this trip-hop kick and I've listened to those albums since high school and it's about time I actually owned them.

I got to hang out with my dad too, which I love because I don't see him as much as I'd like to since he works on Saturdays when I usually stop by my parents' house.
It's uncanny how much of him I see in me with our interests and personality and unpartisan political views and the same way of looking at people.

When people meet my dad, they always say "oh it all makes so much sense now why you're the way you are."

Someday I hope to have a car with a CD player.
