I'm finally caving and buying some imps.

Tell me what you like - I've read the message boards but I really want to know what my friends are into.

I'm thinking Jezebel, Eclipse, Dee, and a few others.

Tell, tell, tell.

Time:09:09 pm
I wish I could have gone to the Led Zeppelin show in London last night:

Thanking all the people who had come from more than 50 countries, Plant declared, "This is the 51st country" and commenced "Kashmir," which was the song most Led Zeppelin fans said they wanted to hear in a music magazine poll. It left the singer in tears and the audience, which had been long on its feet, hollering for more.

Back onstage, the encore inevitably took the form of "Whole Lotta Love." At the end, Plant saluted Ertegun and Atlantic Records and said good night. It looked like it was all over, but then, Led Zeppelin burst back for a resounding version of "Rock and Roll," leaving the packed house celebrating the extraordinarily good fortune that allowed them to witness it.

Jim's cousin, Katie, started her own biz making funky holiday stockings.

Here's an article about her work in the Springfield, IL paper.

Here's a link to her Etsy.

I love young, forward-thinking entrepreneurs!

I quit smoking the cigarettes 3 years ago today. It was election night and my daughter's birthday.

Not a day goes by that I don't wish I could smoke, but every day I say "no" and keep moving.

Subject:Favorite Fall Song Ever
Time:03:24 pm
Right here for you to enjoy.

It's American Music Club from 1991 - "Rise", from the album Everclear.

It's powerful, spacious, chilly, and I've probably put it on every last one of my for-public-consumption mixes.

Enjoy!

Subject:More Research, Pls
Time:07:33 am
A friend had the following questions for me:

"1. what are the popular hip parenting blogs or websites? and feminist
mom sites?

2. as the mom of a tween-- is there a girls magazine/media that isn't
say, "teenvogue" or "disney radio"?"

I'm so out of it, I have no idea how to respond.

Anyone?
