And so I quit the police department and got myself a steady job

I really shouldn't have to write much today other than that I listened to Abbey Road by The Beatles. If you are a fan of any kind of music you should seek out The Beatles in general and Abbey Road specifically.

But as we do with so many great things, I'd grown overfamilar with this album and had all but forgotten it. I'd forgotten the great bass line that makes "Something" extra special and the great sound in Paul McCartney's voice as he sings "Oh! Darling." Even sillier songs like "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and "Mean Mr. Mustard" sounded fresh after such a long absence.

Damn, this is a good album.

As you might have figured out by now, I am indeed back from New York City. I had a mighty good time and I will post pictures and the like soon. First, though, I have to figure out if I am actually allowed to mention by name or show photographic proof of Josh's girlfriend. I think she might be wanted by the Feds. Just kidding, they're just being schmoopy.

I sooo love Abbey Road. My mother had the Lp and I played it ALL THE TIME...and then the record player broke. It was all very suspicious.

Hey, if schmoopy is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

I will find out if you are allowed to post a picture.

I did consider posting a picture and then pasting Natalie Portman's face over hers. Or maybe she would like a big blue dot. The possibilties are endless.

I often sing Maxwell's Silver Hammer to my cat, Max. He doesn't get it, but I guess I would be more nervous if he did. :-)
