vacillation

I got the blues from my baby left me by the San Francisco Bay,
The ocean liner's gone so far away.
Didn't mean to treat her so bad, she was the best girl I ever have had,
She said goodbye, I can take a cry, I want to lay down and die.

I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime.
She don't come back, think I'm going to lose my mind.
If she ever gets back to stay, it's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.

--Jesse Fuller, "San Francisco Bay Blues"

Yay, it's vacation time. :) Been looking forward to this all summer. I get to return to my beloved Bay Area, drive a friend nuts, and in general have fun. Oh yeah, and pick up the piece of paper from Berkeley that says I've done gone graduated or something like that.

I need to wake up in an hour and a half to go catch the bus, and at two this afternoon, I'll be in SJC. That's gonna be fun. And I'll prolly sleep like a log on the bus. But that's okay. For some reason, nights before I'm supposed to be traveling always have me awake until all hours of the night. Trying to make sure I've remembered everything, trying to desperately make sure I have everything of interest. Have I got everything?

Anyway, 'cause I'll need to borrow somebody else's computer time, I'll prolly not be updating this thing every night like I do when I'm at home. Instead, I'll try to remember the highlights so I can type it in.

Anyway, I'm gonna join the dog in collapsing on my bed. Night everyone!
