Belle & Sebastian, "This Is Just A Modern Rock Song"

Currently, I am out of my cave, blogging (with stolen internet access) from Morningside Heights, Manhattan. Our friend was kind enough the let us stay at her place while she's out of town.

At 1am there was a group of kids on the street yelling at each other for 30 minutes. No fight broke out, but there was plenty of screaming and cursing. One guy yelled, over and over again, seemingly for the full half hour, "I'm gonna FUCK that n***** up!"

I looked for a stray hammer, crowbar or whatever to keep near me in bed should the shouting erupt into a full gang war and somehow spread into my friend's apartment (which is on the second floor, so the guys really felt like they were "in" the apartment). Happily, the "discussion" stayed at street level and my daughter slept through it all.

I woke up this morning cuddling a small hammer and felt slightly absurd.

Anyway, so clearly I have chosen to take the day off. Please head over to EvolutionTrader's blog today for the VO. I'm typing on a mac and can't figure out how to create a hyperlink... forgive me, ET.
