It turns out the only fun way to deal with a gloomy day like today is to confront it head on: get out there for a run in torrential rain. Incidentially, it is also the perfect way to get over a hangover from Sugarland, which, in turn, was the inspiration for the soundtrack of my athletic adventure: a loop of Gimme More, Beat Goes On and Bossy. The run was ugly, wet, messy and sexy. Once every inch of my body was completely drenched I embraced the shittiness of the conditions and focused instead on getting in touch my inner Lindsey, Britney and Madonna. At the end, when I stopped by the coffee place downstairs to get a doze, Rodney asked:
"Milk or sugar?""I like it black.""Ohh, you're making my heart beat."
On and on, on the beat goes..
