Quick notes: The Cinco de Mayo edition
Celebrate my birthday today...thousands of Mexicans can't be wrong.
Deb tagged me to list "5 songs that knock my socks off." I might revise or elaborate, but here's a starting lineup. My choices are based entirely on "which songs do I get sucked into singing along to, at the top of my lungs, EVERY time I hear them?"
Sinnerman by Nina Simone
Waltz #2 by Elliott Smith
Everything is Everything by Lauryn Hill
Deep Red Bells by Neko Case
Say It Ain't So by Weezer
Yeah, it's a goofy list. So sue me! I'm the birthday girl.
For those in the DC area: next Sunday, MAY 13, from 6-8 PM, I'll be reading at Club Iota in Arlington, VA (2832 Wilson Blvd., #703 256-9275) with a great writer, Ellen Cole. An open mic will follow. I'll debut some of the revised NaPoWriMo poems and possibly, tap dance (depends on the crowd). Mothers are welcome; there's even a bar. How relevant the latter is to the former depends, of course, on your particular mother.
