i took mad dog's advice & stopped off at the bodega on bergen & 4th avenue for their friday tamales. i figured it would be a nice supper for jenny, you know? also, i'm not sure if i've ever had a real tamale. i think i havn't. or well, hadn't, since that was our dinner. of course, after that she showed me some of her swag from the book expo & we fell asleep pretzaled up together. it was a nice nap, tucked away in her pocket like that, but i think she is in it for the long hall. the sleep of the dead, as opposed to mordicai-style sleep of the damnned.
