When I was languishing in Ireland with a fledgeling social life, she sent me a mixed tape including such delights as Beth Orton and Elliot Smith, with the sweetest little message reminding me of home. Something about yellow kitchens and kitties hunting in the long grass. And it made me cry. And I listened to it about a million times. It doesn't sound quite the same any more.
update 26/10/2005 - thanks to Betty Sue, here is the full text from the aforementioned mixed tape.
