It’s almost noon on Monday and I’m still in bed. Not for much longer though. I officially go back to tomorrow because apparently I like to torture myself. I just had what you might call a ‘last hurrah’ at Disneyland yesterday after being a part of A Trolley Show featuring one of our favorite bands Youngblood Hawke. I guess my point is to please excuse this ramble because my brain still isn’t fully functional.

First thing you will notice about this particular listing is that it’s for a week and a half instead of the standard week. “Why,” you ask. One word. Bonnaroo!!!! Kristen and I are heading out to Tennessee for the festival and have some post Bonnaroo activities planned as well. I’m flying back on Wednesday because it was a cheaper alternative than Tuesday and because I don’t spend enough time in Nashville. But there’s still lots of stuff to do in SD while I’m away.
