icon says it all


Shit ass day at work. Hell night at the restaurant. I left at 9:30, DONE with that place. Then one of the waitresses (our neighbor, Miss Sparkle) texted me at 11:30 to say Cory Branan was playing a surprise set there. What the motherfucking fuck. Got there in time to see him pack up, hug him, chat for a second, and drink a beer before he was gone. *sigh* I knew there was possibility of John Prine, Justine Earle and Todd Snider being there and I forewent staying because the night had sucked so much and been so busy I was just done. Why did no one tell me the possibility of Cory? The universe is FIRED.

  1. I haven’t had a chance to tell you, but last Friday, I was out to eat at a bar down by the University and I was wearing one of your necklaces. Anyway, the waitress noticed it and asked me where I got it… When I told her it was made by a friend in Nashville, she told me that she worked during the day in a store there in town and her boss was looking for jewelry to sell on consignment. She thinks her boss might be very interested in your work, if you’re interested in that kind of arrangement.

    Let me know if you want their info.


    Dammit, FIRE THE UNIVERSE. A) because he didn’t do that while I was there, and B) because he did it after you’d gone home! Dammit! That sucks!

  3. WTF, CORY? Doesn’t he know that he’s supposed to clear his schedule with you beforehand?

  4. That’s exactly what we were saying!

  5. SERIOUSLY! It’s some insanely bad timing!

  6. Oh yes! Please! You can email me at jacynrebekah at yahoo dot com

  7. You left even though there was a chance of seeing JOHN PRINE and came back for someone NOT JOHN PRINE? This is the more shameful element of your post!

  8. Yes, I know. But honestly, Nashville is filled with opportunities to see John Prine, and it was a pretty flaky event all around, so I didn’t actually expect anyone to show up. And my feet where full of broken glass.

  9. So what you’re saying is that I need to be living in Nashville. I see. 🙂
