Somewhere, there's a place for my ass, somewhere . . .

Okay, I'll admit it, that BlogHer-ambivalent post was a cry for help. Fortunately, ELB got my attention with an e-mail whose subject line, "Don't give me that shit," and her offer of a couch to sleep on, put many things into perspective. Thus chastened, I vow to refocus my financial tractor beam and get my ass to Chicago.

Speaking of couches, or at least comfy chairs, behold my very favorite song of the moment, Amy Winehouse's "Love is a Losing Game," sung live by its author.

(I am listening to nothing but her these days and it's all his fault!)
