This week I listened to over 50 albums by Mercedes Sosa, but in the end I only kept 13 tracks, so that was a bit disappointing. Her best song for me is the Violetta Parra cover Que he sacado con quererte (also done by Natalia Lafourcade).

My brother had a slight lisp as a kid, so he went to a Jewish pre-K in Queens because they had a program to help with speech, while my sister and I went to a Catholic pre-k. My brother came home crying one day because he was Jewish while the rest of us were Catholic. We were had three religions under one roof!

it was so surreal listening to the marathon last year, knowing the spectre of covid hung over all of our heads, without, having any idea how bad it would end up being...it was like one last hurrah before isolation and stress of adapting to our brave new world. a group of friends and I actually got to see a concert just before pa shut down everything, it's a great memory but honestly it's kind of terrifying to think about how stressful a situation like that will be after a year of trying our best to social distance [/rant]

The last thing we did was volunteer that last weekend of Marathon. We had a hotel room reserved for H&MS for Sunday, do we ended up answering phones that last night of Marathon, which was so weird as things all over progressively shut down. Then Monday we went back over the rivers by ferry, went to pick up the dog, and drove home listing to Joe Belock wondering if the world would end as he was broadcasting from the station before the hammer fully fell.
