No Time For Love, Doctor Jones

And so begins the madness. First, I’ll be performing tonight at Mortified Boston, thanks to the fantastic Ms Lisa McColgan (a co-worker over at the Huntington, as well as a fellow writer on Five By Five Hundred and possibly the world’s biggest zombie enthusiast). I’ll be singing a hilariously embarrassing song that I originally wrote in high school, so if you want to see me get up and stage and humiliate myself, well, that’s the place to be.

On a less romantic note, this week’s Five By Five Hundred entry recalls an encounter with one of my favorite homeless people on the entire planet (yes, I have more than one favorite homeless person). Singing the praises of a confessed former-gang-banger might not seem like the most topical choice for a Valentines Day post, but, well, in light of recent events *cough*Chris Brown*cough*, it makes some form of sense in my warped mind.

Domestic Violence and the Weather at FiveByFiveHundred.com

This week at Five By Five Hundred, I wrote a short new poem about living in New England, because with the way the weather changes here, I sometimes feel like I’m in an abusive relationship. Every time it makes me miserable, there’s a beautiful sunny day to make me remember why I love it here. And then it snows again. AARGH!

Anyway, enjoy!
