Chillin’ with Duff

It’s after one a.m. And i cant sleep. Am at my parents’ house, and when I’m here it’s hard not to revert a little. Duffy is a sweet dog. I’m letting him up on the bed with me. I dont care if he’s not supposed to. I’m lonely.

I wept in the car ride up here listening to “Let It Be.” “Two of Us” also gets me sometimes. And I also wonder about “The Long and Winding Road” why he keeps going back. How good could it have been if she kept leaving him standing there … Why keep going back?

The conversation is the relationship.

I acquired Fierce Conversations about five years ago at the Fortune 100 financial services company I used to work for. The author, Susan Scott, was brought in to address an audience convocated by the W.L.P. (Women’s Leadership Project, and no I couldn’t resist including the acronym.) Cheezy? I assumed, yes. But I went anyway because well, I am a woman and I lead. And they had free coffee.

Susan is a tall stunning woman with red hair and fluid body language. She was wearing a white suit. The second she mentioned she was from the Pacific Northwest, I thought to myself: “Oh here we go… another one of those zany new age types here to give a corporate rah rah speech.”

Though I wasn’t ready to receive her message back then, there was no denying Susan’s energy and authenticity. So I took the free copy of Fierce Conversations that they handed out to us, figuring I might read it some day. It sat on my bookshelf collecting dust for years until about a month ago, when my first real adult relationship ended with me being unexpectedly dumped. Continue reading

Simon Says: WTF?

An okayplayer email told me that the new Pharoahe Monch album, Desire, hit stores today.

For those of you who don’t have a clue, Pharoahe’s a Queens-hailing hip hop artist reknowned for his superior lyricism, voice and social commentary. I guess he’s more of an underground artist, though he did get some good radio play in the nineties. If I recall correctly Funk Master Flex used the Simon Says instrumental as his theme song back in the day (he still might … I haven’t listened to the radio for the last 5 or 6 years).

My brother Kevin jokes that when I get married, my walk-in song at the reception will be Simon Says which is pretty hilarious for a variety of reasons, the main one being that I am a white Irish Catholic girl from Bergen County New Jersey. Lyrics like this, quite simply, would shock and awe them (and not in a good way).

But I digress. The okayplayer email told me that Pharoahe was going to be signing records tonight at Fat Beats. I was otherwise engaged for the evening, and though I often consider it, I very rarely attend those kinds of groupie events anyway.

But when I got home a little while ago, I began the online hunt. Continue reading
