Why you should all have co-bloggers (By guest blogger Candace)

Because not even sweet boyfriends have the good timing to send you two Nina Simone cds on the day that your mailboxes give you a nervous breakdown. It was like she knew just how to make up for what didn’t come in the mail today.

And, I now understand why Ginger went so far as to name her cat after this woman. The tearing up of now-irrelevant graduate school applications, banging my fists against the wall and screaming at the hot cocoa to go away and leave me alone — that phase is now over. Now, I’m lighting enough candles to set the Kremlin on fire, cranking up the heat in my apartment, and, as recommended, playing the live cd over and over.

On a cold December day, nothing gives your heart a nice calming massage like a relaxing cd, expensive body care, and the knowledge that the internet loves you.

Internet, I love you, too. (Except for you, Evil Dawn.)

Music is the one of the two consoling agents in my life right now (my girlfriend, for whom I buy plenty of music, being the other). Nina Simone is amazing; I’m listening to some John Coltrane as we speak.
My girl got some amazing pre-Blues compilations for Christmas, I know she’s enjoying them a bunch.
