FREEDOM!! Freedom came for me at 3am on Wednesday morning when I finished my last of 10, twelve-hour shifts, in the past 11 nights. Within 9 hours my co-worker Mel and I picked up our paycheques and hit the road for our Ontarian homes.
If you’re going to be stuck in a car with someone for seven hours it is near-impossible to beat the fine and fun company of one Miss. Mel. We talked about anything and everything. And just to add to, what I’m sure is an already stereotyped image of an girl road trip, the opening lyric to our journey was “YO! I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want!” …. Yes, Mel had the brilliant foresight to download Now 2, so the trip was filled with the artistry of the Spice Girls, No Doubt, Jewel and Dr. Dre.
As you can see, the weather was less than ideal, but my fine driver handled it with perfection.
Most of Imogen’s songs sound vaguely Christmassy and fanciful, and this one was particularly fitting for me after my extremely long work-week.

Carefully considered! I do like a bit of Venga Boys to get in the road-trip mood!
