i tend to treat everyone and anyone with whom i interact for more than five minutes as a potential / probable critic and/or assailant. 

it kind of makes interacting with anyone for more than five minutes difficult.

this town makes me so ugly. not that i need any help in that department. but i get vicious here, i get cruel. and then i turn back to the wall and try to forget what day it is.

janet baker’s rendition of dido’s lament.

and if you don’t have a good half hour to sob, don’t listen to it yet. but set aside that half hour, an hour would be even better, and listen. 

janet baker’s rendition of dido’s lament has me sobbing on my bedroom floor in my pajamas at two-thirty in the afternoon.

wonderful way to spend a tuesday.
