drown out everything strange

I'm reading "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." I've only read one or two Hunter S. Thompson books, but this.. I'm amazed with every sentence, every paragraph. This was a man who was born to write.

I hadn't had the urge to write in a while. Poetry, prose, freelance.. I was worried that I had lost passion for something I've loved my entire life. I was hoping this blog would help get me in the swing of things again, but minimal luck. Then I watched Gonzo, a documentary on Thompson. Fascinating. They say he wrote and rewrote "The Great Gatsby" to learn sentence structure and the writing style of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Naturally, I wanted to do the same.

I went on a library hunt, and little did I know the Mid-Manhattan library is practically across the street from my internship! Lunch break, library card, book. "The Great Gatsby" was nowhere to be found, regardless of a computer system telling me that two copies must be floating around the library, so I settled for "Fear and Loathing."

I'm getting my groove back.

On to the outfit. Why do I always end up on the roof with no pants?

Weather was nice today, though it became substantially colder and the wind was a blowin' once on the roof. Only got a few shots in before scooting my booty down the fire escape and back into my slightly warmer apartment!
