Um, shutdown.

Today is Monday, and no one is ever going to accuse me of being on an even keel.

I can be trusted with my life.

You can be trusted with yours.

Seriously, if you're over 40, you can even start to trust your own decisions. We're no longer larvae!

More on this later.

Yes, I said Rocktober!

Now, let that be the last we speak of it.

The mini version of my new life:

Weekdays, I wake up early. Drive to Bloomington (1.5 hours). Work (8.5 hours). Drive home (1.5 hours.) Drink bourbon. Sleep. Repeat.

Weekends, I eat food with friends that I miss, sleep, and do laundry.

Don't you wish you were me?

I know I do! I have a bed, a car, a job, dinner, bourbon, friends, and clothes. I'm thankful.

Les Chocolates

OK, I'm totally going to fudge this entry and pretend that I'm right on time with publishing every day in October, but I've actually already fallen off the wagon.

I have to urge you to buy the CD by the Carolina Chocolate Drops called Genuine Negro Jig. Holy cow, what a fantastic group of musicians. The young woman who does the lead vocals is trained in opera, but KILLS on the folk-type music. The group does a little-known tradition of black, Southern, string-band music. They're preserving part of American history, and making amazing music!

The clip below is of a cover of a hip-hop song that I really think they do better. Enjoy. And then go buy the CD. Srsly.

What the hell?

For reasons I surely don't understand, I haven't blogged for 16 months. Let's fix that, shall we? I'm joining my VBF Beth for 31 days of blogging in honor of Down syndrome awareness month. Get to know someone who you perceive to be "different"! You'll be so glad you did.
