It was…

How was my trip?

Slide 1

 

(pictured: mom’s copy of our family’s recipe for hungarian goulash and dumplings.. passed down countless generations)

lyrics

 

It was a lot of
construction on I-90
It was a game of Wi-Fi hot spot hop scotch

It was me trying to not seem unhip
to the staggering,
wide world of craft beers
(Remember when a few varieties of Sam Adams was all you had to know about? Now, I don’t know.)

It was a crash course in Harry Potter,
everything about Harry Potter
from my niece, Sylvia
(she turned 10)

It was jamming on banjos
It was coffee and biscotti
It was absinthe and sugar cubes
Space Case and Mr. Ro..ck!
Kick out the Jams

Ode to Toronto

I spent a few days in Toronto this month and it was.. death by awesome.

lyrics

Toronto
why’d ya hafta go and be so cool?
you make me wanna stay at home from school
you make me wanna go out
Toronto
you got a way of freaking out at night
you got a way of smoking out of sight
I never wanted it to end
