So long, farewell, Auf Weidersehen, goodbye...

Edit, 4:57 PM Japan Time: Hooray, this almost looks like it should now! Good thing, too, because I just paid $4.50 to edit this.

[This entry written at 12:30 last night. Apologies in advance. Also, for Susannah: I'll be in and out of Chapel Hill next week, on vacation the week after that, and then back for good.]


Somebody...

Told her that there was a place like Heaven,
Across the water on a 747:
Yeah, we're living in a modern world...


Well, let me tell you--if you're feeling alone,
'Stead of whinin' and moanin',
Just get on the phone, tell her you're coming home;
If you need her, you should be there,
Go home...


So here's to the nights we felt alive,
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry;
Here's to goodbye--tomorrow's gonna come too soon...


But I'm coming home,
Made up my mind, that's what I'm gonna do.
Can't love nobody on a telephone,
I'm coming home to you...


(As through the dark the sun must rise,
Say sayonara to sad goodbyes...
See the dark light up your somber skies,
Say sayonara to sad goodbyes...
)

So here's to the nights we felt alive,
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry;
Here's to goodbye--tomorrow's gonna come too soon...

Too soon...

*instrumental*

So here's to the nights we felt alive,
(You're only an ocean away...)
So here's to the nights we felt alive,
(I watch the patchwork farms, slow fade
into the ocean's arms...
)
Here's to the nights, here's to the nights, here's to the--

I became friendly with Ruy Lopez,
the author of Works on Chess:
"Ruy", I said, "you're incorrect-"
He cut me off and acted mad.
He won't even talk to me now, but I don't care,
'Cause I'm sick of that guy and I need to
Rest awhile, rest awhile,

Rest awhile, rest awhile!



I'm taking off in about ten hours. I'll be keeping this updated on a fairly consistent basis for the forseeable future, but especially make sure to stick around for the next week or so. I'll try to make a few wrapup posts and get some pictures I never a found a space for put in. Thanks for reading, in any case, and I'll see y'all Saturday.
