Summer Membership Drive 2010: True Confessions

True confessions? I prefer to write a blog with a gin and tonic at my elbow. It makes me feel like Henry Miller or William S. Burroughs. If they drank when they wrote, I know it would be whiskey, but a girl can dream. I like feeling like them -- kinda bad ass-ish, kinda grizzled...Read more...
