It gave me the once over twice

I think we are all lucky to be reading such good things .

Speaking of delightful writing, does anyone remember a short story from last summer that ran in the New Yorker, kind of Cheever-inflected magic realism about a family with a catering business, and the youngest daughter with a funny name like Patience, who rides on the back of her dog, and she "ruins" the wedding dinner by putting maraschino cherry sauce on the fish and then solves it by baking magic bread? All I need to know is who wrote it. And I need you to tell me who that is, because I want more of them.

In other news, I passed my audition with Al and Dave and Noah's band and will be spending a bit of this spring on tour. With three other bands on a package tour. I will be the only woman on the tour. With 24 guys. While there are base internal motivations and old-kid romanticism about the road and the stage and bass overdrive pedals that are harboured within my chicken-soul, this is fundamentally a political action for me. Not to strike the martyr pose, but I consider it more of a Shirley Temple Black style ambassadorial networking to young punk girls who go to shows at the Huntinton WV YMCA. All of that is predicated on a faith that punk music and examples and small actions can administer something real and tangible in peoples lives, which seems idealistic and grandiose, but at least it's worth trying.
I mean, as far as I am concerned.

I think the Cheever-inflected magic realism story was written by David Schickler, author of Kissing in Manhattan. Can't remember the name of the story.

wow that totally does seem like a political action being on that tour. actually you're probably going to be role model for guys of color too on the tour. good luck and power to the people (you)

I've been looking around and came across your site by accident. The information you link to from your home page is quite informative so thanks for taking the time to post it.

I've managed to save up roughly $30878 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the market is stable or do you think that home prices will decrease by a lot?
