Alla My Friends ‘n’ Stuff

Last night, I went with Justin, Lori, and Danielle to see a play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. My roommate Kari was the assistant stage manager, and Kimberley Lynne, a mutual friend and fellow MFAer, was co-director. The stage itself was simple: a rainbow curtain hung on the […]

Phase II of the Snow Emergency Plan for Baltimore City is still in effect for Friday, so cars will be towed if […]
