Katherine moved to New York, after decades of pining, in 2010. She will not rest until she has met Grover Monster and eaten every pork bun in the city. She lives in Brooklyn but re-blogs a lot of posts regarding Baltimore. (Seriously though, if you know how I can meet Grover, get in touch.)
Kate Nash - We Get On (BBC Radio 3 23 Feb 2007)
My parents used part of their day off Friday to drive my car to the Shady Grove Metro station so I could drive to Frederick without picking me up. (Which makes the ensuing fatigue even worse.)
The Mother’s Day CD I made for my mom last year was left in the CD player, and as I drove out of the station and on to 370, this Kate Nash song began to play, and it made me so happy.
I love this song. I used to totally get this song. (It was well embarrassing and/I think you thought that I was a bit of a twat may summarize my feeling on 98% of my one-on-one interactions.) After an especially crushing blow to my self-esteem last spring I had a short moratorium on this song while driving alone.
But post-January epiphany I don’t feel that way, about anyone anymore! Thank you for helping me New York, life is so much better now than it was before. (Give me two weeks until I renege, “Same shit, different city.”)
