    And I Do Know Better... But...

    But there's something unmistakingly mischievous and exciting about doing stuff against knowing better. Sometimes there's regrets afterwards, of course, with an accompanying sigh of "damn, I KNEW this was gonna happen". But sometimes there's just a giddy feeling and a silly, broad...

    No Reruns For Me

    Reruns of old mistakes that is.  The one valuable lesson I've learned is this:  Never jump  back into the same skillet.  You'll get burned worse, the second time around.

    Still Too Young To Care

    I wear my miniskirts in winter.  I own my own saxophone.  I wear my high heels on escalators. I date men too old, women too young, and boys too committed.  I eat my lamb pink in the middle and I dance alone in the lobby of restaurants.  I go out without a scarf, and I walk...
