Lady J at Pen to Pages. She, like I, had a bit of a rough day yesterday with the every elusive little bitch called Happiness and is a Spoken Word fan like myself - so I thought I would post this for any who may need a little pick me up. The artist in the video is the fucking fabulous poet and author, Maggie Estep. She put out a few albums back in the '90s - No More Mister Nice Girl ("I'm not a normal girl. I'm an angry, sweaty girl. So BITE ME!") and Love is a Dog from Hell ("I'm an emotional idiot, so get away from me - I mean, come here.") - but her magic is really in the words. She is also one hell of an author. If you don't know Maggie - seek her out. I know if you are a fan of this blog, you will fall in love (with her). The video is only a minute and a half long. Take the time. Trust.
Okay. One more. As charming as y'all seem to think I am, THIS is what it's REALLY like living with me. Nail. Head. Bingo!
