Old Habits

Longtime readers (where are the two of you?!) may remember my former penchant for reporting the various snippets of rotating wisdom found on the sign in front of a church in my neighborhood. I thought I had successfully weaned myself from this particular blog tic, but today I drove by and the message was so rich, so deeply felt, so paradigm-altering, that I just have to share:

If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.

In other marginally fun news, iTunes has Yaz's Upstairs at Eric's!! I cannot tell you how many times I sat alone on my crappy little bed in my actually quite fantastic San Francisco apartment (shared with two un-fantastic roommates) listening to the tape on my boom box and occasionally dragging my angsty self up to dance—badly, so badly—in the mirror.

Tell me I'm not the only one.

Please.

You're not alone. I was living in a warehouse above a comedy club at the time.

Hot dang, I used to listen to that over and over and over. I had a horrible habit of getting a little tipsy and serenading the ladies with...Oh, what's that song?...."Midniiiight..."...Oh, yah -- Midnight.

Good times.
