planes, trains & automobiles

So, it’s been a while…I’ll get back to that.

Once, when I was in high-school i rented Planes, Trains & Automobiles from the corner 7-Eleven. The next day, I went to Slurpee Heaven to return the little nugget of funny, but the store had closed. And when I say closed, I mean the suddenly-out-of-business kind of closed. In the halls of 17-year old justice, that meant the tape was mine… yeah, tape. When i was in high-school DVDs were the property only of exclusive trans-national eye surgeons and hush-money confidants.

The tape is no longer with me.. it didn’t survive my freshman year of college… but, I still love the film, and for the last month (Sarabeth says I’m exaggerating), I have totally been identifying with Neal Page. I CAN’T GET BACK TO CHICAGO!, and when I say I can’t get back to Chicago, I mean Comcast cannot establish my home internet access for anything longer than two-minute intervals. I would say it’s maddening, but honestly, I gave up on it two-weeks ago. The dude is still around, and once normalcy returns to my connectivity, I will again be abiding right here.

  1. Come on Jones, we know all of your available time and bandwidth are being consumed downloading episodes of The Golden Girls. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right Rose?
