The Pains of Being Impure At Heart
There are times when I love being out by myself, temporarily liberated from the prison of my public identity. I thought tonight would be that sort of occasion.But now that I'm sitting here at Club Congress I feel terribly isolated and desperate for company. I really miss the days when every visit here was guaranteed to yield several reunions with smart, funny acquaintances as in love with music as I am. I'm sure some of the people here are the precise sort I'm desperate to find, but I no longer have the means of making that sort of context-dependent friend. As down as I currently feel, though, I suspect that The Pains of Being Pure At Heart will sound all the better for the stormy weather presently drenching my spirit.

Getting drunk and punching someone in the face could make you have less Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

This is what I mean, Sean. I lack the support of people like yourself to realize my inner beast. Since you left I've been making like Pat Boone!

This may or may not help but you should come over for dinner sometime. (This might force us to buy better chairs.)

I would love that. My schedule is rather complicated this semester -- I'm teaching at ASU on Tuesdays and Thursdays -- but I could come on a Wednesday or Monday with enough advance notice.

Hah! Mondays and Wednesday nights are when I have that class. But if you're up for a late dinner (circa 9 p.m.) that could work.

Late is usually better for me anyway. If weekends aren't a problem, I could probably due a late-ish, Spanish-style dinner then, too.

That sounds good! You can basically just pick a date on which to invite yourself over, and then run it by Ron first. (Right now he has tentative plans for some TBA one-week period in October ...)

(Weekends aren't generally a problem either.)
