Now I am glad I brought the laptop. I have a 5 hour wait in LAX for my next flight. The astro-dweeb is flying in from Hawaii to catch this flight with me – seems sort of romantic ….
People look so dowdy in airports don't they? I suppose it is a combination of wearing "comfy" clothes, anxiety & tiredness which leads to very few good looking fliers!
Maybe you are curious about what sort of music I have on my iPod to wile away all these hours. Well, the back of my iPod is inscribed with my name and under that it says "Daggy-licious" . I have over 5,000 eclectic songs on my iPod but the general genre could probably be described as daggy.
I enjoyed nearly an hour of Nana Mouskouri over West Virginia & Kentucky (I realise that probably only my sister will not have to google her!); followed by some Alison Krause and Dixie Chicks. I then listened to Jenny Lewis's "Rabbit Fur Coat" album twice – love it!! I have Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Amy Winehouse, Beach Boys, Robert Plant, The Animals, Chris Isaak, Commander Cody, Shirley Bassey, Cilla Black, Dean Martin, Eminem, Edith Piaff, Frank Zappa, Israel Kamakawiwo, Green Day and the list goes on…. but my favourite travelling music is Johnny Cash. His sonorous voice and the consistent level of sound, both voice and instrumental, is effective in keeping me in a lulled state. I have, and love, all his American Recording albums and have them in a playlist of their own which I set on "repeat".
So now you can imagine me over the Pacific Ocean playing 15 hours of Johnny Cash! Now that is daggy!
