Suddenly it's 4am and Ana's asleep but I'm not. Story of my life, lately...

I've been updating this page a lot more often than my main page, lately. So, wander on over if you want to. Meanwhile, I should sleep.

I actually had one professor encourage his students to come to class drunk. "It will facilitate discussion," he said, looking for all the world as though he truly meant it.

Too bad I dropped that class.

I'm a mean and evil gal
ohh, don't you mess with me
I'm a mean and evil gal
no, you'd better not mess with me
I will empty out your pockets
and fill them up with misery
It always surprises me when I go somewhere and find it to be exactly the way people write about it. A million people have written a million times about dark smoky blues bars and how the music grabs you by the soul and won't let go. Somehow when I read about it, I feel like all these accounts must be exaggerated, that the stereotypes can't really exist in real life. That there couldn't possibly be a real place where you can listen to a gigantic black woman with the best voice you ever heard; where they stop the music when the train passes (so you don't miss out on a single note); where the bouncer wears an eyepatch and rain only makes the atmosphere better.

But it does exist; I know because I've been there.
