NMT: Holiday Travel Edition

Well, my bags are all [strategically] packed and ready to go for my 12.30p flight tomorrow afternoon. I charged up the ol’ iPod and threw some stuff on there; I thought it’d be fun to give a snapshot of what I’ll be listening to as I pray/meditate/do Indian weather dances tomorrow at the airport:

So there you have it. That’s some of the stuff I’ll be listening to while I pull my hair out think positive thoughts about air travel for me and D tomorrow.

Airport fears aside, I’m ridiculously excited to be heading home. Which begs the question: What will you be listening to as you travel this Thanksgiving? Or, if you’re hosting Thanksgiving, what will you be playing for your guests?

Travel safe, y’all. More to come, presumably from the Hawkeye State.

  1. We listened to the top 47 most important albums of all time on Dad’s new stereo…great story for ya, but odd I know! šŸ™‚

  2. I’m curious—what did the list of important albums include?!

  3. I’m glad you asked..hahaha. Okay so I lied apparently it was only the top 46, but oddly enough I did find the list online. http://www.xmradio.com/onxm/channelpage.xmc?ch=46

    They played 2-3 songs off each album and we got in around number 37. Also, sidenote – when The Boss came on, I thought of you! šŸ™‚
