Listening to Music in Parking Lots

I'm out here safe and sound and happy in LA now with Malena! This, is a Very Good Thing. Many thanks to Jody, our Sexy Librarian for the Very early morning drive to the airport yesterday ( and for listening to a fair amount of whinning about Boy Bands and Bars ) It was beyond wonderful to get off the plane and hand Malena the cd! ( I think she likes it )

I have it in my mind and plan to write of all our adventures out here this week, but this first installment may start off a little slow. I have been beyond busy and am very short of sleep , so we are more or less easing into things.

Last night we took off to buy a few Food Type things with the cd on Malenas Really Really cool car stereo and after we got out of the store, we sat for half of it in the parking lot listening and talking, until I started to laugh saying THIS is what I get to Blog about??? This is as far as we get in LA??? No Sunset Blvd, no Ocean Drive, no Mountain Vista?? Malena , says I , we are sitting in the grocery store parking lot!!!!

SO we did some driving, up a Hill and looked at lights and listened to our cd and were as happy as two girls with a brand new cd can be.

Today was more groceries and a LOT of lovely sleep. The cobwebs may be starting to unfold from my brain.....

More excited as things unfold, from here in the west.....

Love and Adventures, Lorraine

I had a similar moment once in a grocery store parking lot, having come back from France and my friend and I were wishing we had stayed...seems like there's something about grocery store parking lots that make you want to be someplace else, and yet there's always something else making you stay for longer than you want. Reminds me of breakups for some reason...sorry, it's past midnight here and I'm *supposed* to be writing a paper. Bad Beck!

::shrug:: I don't know.....I just spent extra time in my car with my daughters in the grocery store parking lot today listening to Mannheim Steamroller's "Halloween." Dancing like a madwoman in my seat, no less, and neither of the girls demanding to be let out. Granted, I don't have "Mirror, Mirror" yet, NOT that I'm complaining. (Really, I'm not.)

I mean, come on! It was "The Night on Bald Mountain" followed by "The Ride of the Valkyries." I also admit to air conducting. :)

Car stereos are the best way to hear new albums, I always say, as long as you're not driving and you're somewhere dramatic, or schematic, or chromatic, or whatever. I want to see you ladies on Saturday at the bookstore but we are due elsewhere at a costume party soon after. We will do our best...

Well, I just got my CD today, and have been listening to it, and *love it*! I can decide if I have a favorite song yet though...Anyway, Lorraine a' Malena, you gals are amazing. I'm so glad I found out about you!

Also, I'm pretty sure it's impossible to not be happy listening to Mannheim Steamroller.

I love it that we are all the sort of people to sit in grocery store parking lots listening to great music!!!

I'm so glad you liked the cd! We are waiting on the edge of our chairs , biting our nails , for the comments!

Ariandelen, if you ordered one and didn't want it signed , it is sent! If you wanted it signed , it will be going out tomorrow....

I hope you and Malena have a great time. I hope you get to see the ocean and smell the salt water during your trip.

When I was a kid I lived out in Woodland Hills. The only thing I miss there is the ocean.

I can hardly wait to hear your CD when I buy it next month.

Since I did asked for my copy to be signed, I wasn't expecting it to arrive before Saturday. I really wasn't complaining.

Re: Mannheim Steamroller
The "Halloween" album just begs to be played LOUD, but I have other ears than mine to worry about so I don't crank it up too much. And some of "Fresh Aire 7" has given me a headache in the past. I keep trying to get my husband to get me "Fresh Aire," "FA 4," and "FA 6" so my set will be complete.

And the current album that always brings me out of a bad mood -
Jethro Tull "Songs From the Wood."

Oh gads, I am sorry! This is what comes of trying to pack them all on four hours of sleep!!! Send us and e-mail and we will work something out...( Lorraine here )

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word halloween, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
