Sometimes after jamming for hours you might be sitting up, reading Elle magazine cover to cover.
And sometimes, while doing that you come across the perfect dress.
Now the perfect dress, doesn't mean it is perfect for everyone, though I could excitedly dress a number of my friends in this one.
The perfect dress, is the perfect dress for you. It has taken me this long to figure out what that means, but now I know and I will show you all!!
The delightful Diane Von Furstenberg designed this one for her spring 2009 ready-to wear. And I am ready to wear it!!

In one day,
I witnessed the inauguration of a President that seems to be as close as a friend.
stood in one of those really long lines at the post office and thought about the whole, government monitored private business monopoly type model
walked in the very cold, snowy air
typed numbers into a computer
re-listened to Obama's inaugural speech
said prayers that had gone unspoken for a while
memorialized an old friend who has passed on
touched a very pregnant belly and got a kiss from my God son
ate Indian food, and felt a heartache to be back in India that I haven't felt in while
went to a rock show
got in a a van with rockin' boys
got home really late
remembered that we have this fabulous new president whose family has just moved into the White House
wrote this blog
good night, and now good day

Sometimes people ask me questions like the one that is the title of this blog and I have to remember that not everyone knows that B major is mostly terrible and B flat major is generally wonderful.
And not everyone knows that the Huffington Post is killing me with the stupid Sarah Palin headline, trying to make some sort of comparison between her and Caroline Kennedy. This is B major and B flat major! The difference is in the number of accidentals. One is by far easier to read.
OK, now I will hop down from my soapbox and share the latest from my non-stop nerdy wagon (thank you Matt for such an appropriate term, wish I could footnote on a blog). I am obsessed with The West Wing!!
I thought that Jon Reid suggested I watch it, but then he defensively denied that claim during band practice on Monday, leading me to believe that this show is fundamentally uncool and meant for people my parent's age.
But let the world know: I DO NOT CARE!
I might have looked uncool when I admitted to loving Beyonce's "single ladies" video, or my affection for the show Gossip Girl (though I do agree it is getting a bit stale). I might have looked uncool when I agreed to audition for American Idol, or got a perm during college. I might have seemed nerdy when I began to give dissertation to anyone who would listen on the botany of the local forests. Screw all ya'll. I love West Wing, and yes, I just researched law schools on the Internet.
And now that I am a new fan of the West Wing, I totally get that the character Josh Lyman was based off of Rahm Emanuel. Look how intense he is......and true he was studying to be a ballet dancer. So, there might be some awesome people on the non-stop nerdy wagon.
