This is based on the song "Sixteen Tons" as sung by the Yale Spizzwinks(?).
Well, I'll be returning to my Northern California homeland Thursday for a relative's graduation. It'll be nice to be back north, although I seem to enjoy the road trip more than the destination.
The last time I went back was in the gooey summer between high school and college, when I was just getting information on Yale: mailings and packets and names.
The journey was thrilling then; I wonder if anything has changed.
