it is strange that this is a pattern in my life, but i have been in a lot of situations in which i am totally shocked and surprised that someone has just kissed me. i think, normally, people see a kiss coming, but there have been enough incidents where a kiss is a total shock that it MUST be something that i'm doing wrong. this was a harmless surprise kiss during a mountain goats concert, but unnerving all the same. and then also, that down there is iron and wine. i (thanks to some generous and talented friends) got to see him sing in this little church in london, and it was lovely.
