I'm happy just because I found out I am really no one

Do you guys know this Bright Eyes song? It's a real winner.

Last year B discovered this song on a mix CD that wasn't his. It was his brother's and had fallen into his possession somehow. He loved the song and then I heard it and I loved it too. He drove me back and forth across the Mississippi river on the I40 bridge and played it for me. It was like were were teenagers for the 10 or so minutes that it took for us to play it 3x in a row.

P.S. I will give you a kiss on the face if you can tell me who is singing in the background.

The other day I saw a man who I don't see very often, and I was in a weird awkward mood, and when he came to greet me, I thought that he might be going to give me a kiss on the cheek. It seemed very natural, and like that was exactly what he was going to do. But he was not, so then I said, "I thought you were going to give me a kiss on the cheek. Why don't you do that?" and he did. It wasn't very awkward. Maybe I will start the summer of greeting people with a kiss. Maybe we'll all get mono and lose 15 lbs. One can hope.

That song will forever be a staple on mix cds that I make for others.
And, realy, I'm glad things are looking up for you.

...and I just checked Wikipedia. I am esp. disappointed how off I was by the fact that recently I've had Goin' to Acapulco from the I'm Not There soundtrack on repeat for about a week.

Megan is trying to greet with kisses these days. I did it a couple of times, but I'm burly and awkward. It ends up with me looking like a dirty scavenger. I will continue to practice though, I could stand to lose some pounds.

How 'bout that "Rockin' Stilettos, Ho!" song on that mixed CD. Had a good time with it from H'ville to Patsy-town.
Don't know why it hasn't yet replaced "Banner" as our nation's anthem!
