Hi, y’all.

It’s Wednesday. The weather has cooled off but the much-needed rain has fled. The peas are starting to sprout in my garden. Last night, I got invited to a decadent vegan meal a friend cooked for about a dozen people. I was struck by how the food and the good company came together — enjoying a meal is at least 50% the company you share.

Here’s Klaus Nomi from 1982, performing “Nomi Song” on French television. Because I don’t believe you need an excuse for plastic suits and gothy ballerinas wearing Slinky’s.

What’s on your mind tonight? This is our latest MyFDL open thread.
