Jenny Owen Youngs

I met Jen and Cristina at Iota last night. Jen is a fan of Jenny Owen Youngs after hearing her song "Fuck was I" on the TV show "Weeds".
This girl totally rocks. She sang this cover of Nelly as her finale. (Which totally reminded me of the "Boyz-N-The-Hood" cover by Dynamite Hack).

She seemed slightly irritated at all the yappers in the fairly small crowd. I would be too. They were loud! And why come to a small bar with a stage, if you want to chat up your friends? Rude.

Me, being the super cool girl that I am, went up to her after her set to buy a cd. We got to chatting. We discussed TV shows and I elaborated on how I think everyone on TV should be beautiful. The ugly girls should be played by people like Cameron Diaz. I see enough ugly on the streets of DC every day. Don't need it in my fantasy television land. Jenny asked me if I was on something. I had to admit that, nope... this is just how I am.

Iguana be your friend

One thing I really wanted to see in Puerto Rico was an iguana. We rented a car to get to old San Juan and along the way, I saw several iguana roadkills. How sad! I hoped to see a non-squashed one, too. We drove through El Yunque, the rain forest, and I finally glimpsed my first live iguana!! He darted out in front of my car, and I slammed on the brakes. Coming to a sudden, screeching stop, the car went pathump and squish and the iguana was no more.

I am a murderer.
