i'm gonna hitchhike down to cincinnati

got into Omaha on Monday morning, got Sam dropped at the terminal and got Sally into the shop for her repairs. Talking with the mechanic has eased my mind a bit. He thinks he may be done by as early as today. I told him that I was anticipating being here at least 3-4 days, so even if he didn't get done until Wednesday I'd be ecstatic. It would definitely be great to not lose this whole week sitting here.

I'm perpeturally behind the times with internet sensations, particularly viral videos. I was surfing around YouTube the other day and came across a video from 2001 of a pop and lock dancer known as David "Elsewhere" Bernal. Since then, he's been in movies and TV commercials utlizing his very unique and original dance moves. I became entraced with him briefly and tracked down everything I could find on YouTube and, um... elsewhere, of him performing. While they're all great in their own way, none are as jaw dropping as the original performance that attracted me to his work; the original performance that got the internets a-ga-ga. If you've never seen it, check it out. It's from a talent show and the video begins with a couple of kids that were on-stage before him. Then David is introduced and he looks like this shy, quiet kid - unsure of himself. He takes a few seconds, bopping back and forth a little in one place and you begin to wonder if his stage fright will consume him. Then... he begins to transform. And for the next 60 seconds you witness one of the most amazing freestyle dance routines you'll ever see.
