there are many things i must do to prepare for my upcoming trip to d.c:

j and i always travel for one of our birthdays. this trip happens to fall in her birthday month so shopping for a gift is a must. gotta plan appropriate & warm attire...you know get the suitcase and fun maker stuff ready.

tonight is reserved for one thing though my friends...it's all about the playlist for the trip. i've spent entirely too long selecting tunage but it was totally worth it. a good playlist can set things in motion...this one captures the excitement and good stuff in the air:

feel free to bite...we can jam simultaneously : )

  2. You should publish that on itunes as an 'imix'. I'm thoroughly impressed. :)

    I spent about 2 hours last week picking/buying songs to ski to. Skiing + ipod = LOVE.
