Homesick

I've never felt homesick until now: The Chicago White SOX are in the World Series and I am far away. In a land where not only is Baseball a joke, but the idea of one nation claiming their final matches of their "favorite pastime" as the WORLD series is more than laughable.

True, I am a cubs fan, but I am happy to see any team of Chicago rise to greatness.

All I have here is this

I'm sending you my version of "London Homesick Blues" through my vibes across the ocean...

"When you're down on your luck and you aint got a buck, in London, you're a goner." (Jerry Jeff Walker).

I could also send you some good old fashioned Howard Stern or something similar online.... Some offer, I know, I know...

I hate my job. I just wanted to share that with you all. And I hate my colleague. I really needed to say that. If not, I may have just gone out into the street and smacked some poor, innocent random. I miss England. I am often homesick for it. Especially when I hate everybody as I do these days.

I didn't realize that you are a Chicago gal at heart. You write with such a European accent.

Kate, I would give my right toenail to be sitting next to you at the fifth with some vodka and raw tuna in our bellies.

Born in Aubagne! I'm jealous!

Marcel Pagnol is one of my favorite writers.

Cigales must be in your blood. :-)
