maybe I post things here so I won't lose them later when I try to remember them.
I heard this song playing on my friend michelle's blog. Sadly, this is the best youtube video I could find. I don't much care for live performance recordings generally, but it will have to do.
Michelle is a friend from my hometown in Idaho. I still remember when we met. A friend and I were hanging at the elementary school playground (I can't remember if we were in middle school or high school) and she and we met her and her sister there. They had just moved from Michigan (?is that right Michelle?). And we hung out with them for a bit around the swings and somehow we ended up talking about accents, and they said my friend didn't have one, but I did. Which I thought was funny. I might have even been flattered, even though I'm not sure if that's a compliment. (What exactly is an Idaho accent?) Maybe it was just a neutral statement of fact.
