"The Funeral" by Band of Horses

Totally obvious song to play on a day like today? Um... yeah, so what's your point? Obviousness is sometimes right on the money. Plus, I like the video. It's got a drunk guy in it!

Also, I wanted to say that I really appreciate everyone that has sent forth the good vibes and warm fuzzies during this time of suckness. It's nice to know that the internet isn't just full of fat nerds trying to spoil the ending to Iron Man. And speaking of the internet, I promise I'll be back on the ol' bloggin' horse by the end of the week. I miss you guys; I miss trying to be funny for your entertainments. Emphasis on the trying, of course.

Parenthetically: This evening, at the visitation (where everyone came to greet the family and catch up and look at all the pretty flowers), I had the young whippersnapper's pleasure of trying to explain to various elderly relatives that I write a blog and that, no, a blog isn't a kind of soup, nor is it "something you do by rail." By the end of the night, I gave up and just told anyone who asked that I'm a postman. It seemed to please all of them. Then they gave me their mail. It got weird after that, but the point is, talking to old people about blogs is hilarious. They think I'm a Bill Gates wizard that mocks their values and hates how things used to be and sends confusing emails with my Super Laptop Brain!!!

But then I give them commemorative stamps and it's all good.

Buck up, little camper.

And it's good to be able to read your stuff again. Brilliant as always.

Anon... Why, thank you! This is quite possibly the sweetest anonymous comment ever in the history of the internet.

Mmyers... I'm totally bucked, dude. Today is all about me getting my mom from one side of the funeral to the other, emotionally speaking. I've made my peace. Cut to: four hours later, C-dog in a ball under a pew crying like an asteroid's about to hit. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen (it might!). And, of course, thanks for the kind words!

I don't really say nice things or anything like that, but if I did, I'd considering saying them to someone like you.

They don't know about blogs because all old people use the internet for is porn and buying Viagra.

Do or do not...There is no try, Clinton.

I had to explain to people my own age what a blog is recently.

They didn't get it either.

Pissed... Hey, I'll take that. Almost-compliments are just as good as the real thing, but half the "awwww" calories.

Just Saying... They also use them to price Rascals.

Lioux... It's a kind of rich, moist cake. Also, thanks!

Yoda... What do you know? You're just a puppet.

Big Daddy... True! Same thing happened to me today.

Todd... I know, right? Nicest anonymous comment ever. Also, thanks for the seconded motion!
