last night cheetahmaster and i went on a fact-finding mission of much importance: to find a place to do karaoke. we went to Oliver's, on main street in laurel. i think his post will speak for itself... however i will add that it apparently matters how much of a regular you are, how often you can get up and sing. i'm almost completely determined to make my first song a pat benatar one. i would like to also note, that laurel has some very colorful locals.
i heard something else on NPR that got me all fired up, (oh hah, pat benatar, you minx), it was a little piece by journalist Richard Rodriguez on the desert religions. i can't find it on their web page though. i'll keep searching. for now, errands!
