I'll be leaving for The States a little later today, so I don't know if I'll be writing much over the next little while. But then, I say that often enough.

On a related note, I had to send my luggage a few days early to the friends I'm travelling with by way of another friend. The second friend told me that when my suitcase was picked, it was described as being 'so Chris'.

And there you have it: 'Chris' is now also an adjective - use it with gusto. But don't wear it out.

Thanks to Ben for pointing this gem out to me:

Samson
Regina Spektor
From the album Begin to Hope

I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the Bible didn't mention us
And the Bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin' on our heads
But they're just old light, they're just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I'd done alright
And kissed me 'til the mornin' light, the mornin' light
And he kissed me 'til the mornin' light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall

I loved you first

And just in case: a Happy Canada Day and great long weekend to all.
