Brush With Greatness

Two cups of coffee and a coke, and it isn't even 2 pm. And this is for the gal who normally drinks a combination of decaf and regular coffee such that the caffeine intake is less than one cup per day.

My hands are shaking, my heart a little fluttery, but I can barely stay awake. Because Kelsey dragged me out last night, and I'm so glad she did. (And yes, we were out past 8 pm; I arrived in the door at 11:34 pm, I think, and then I had trouble sleeping, and was up and out of bed at 5:11 am.)

What were we doing? I don't normally just shoot the breeze with Kelsey until that time of the night. Instead, we hit a Dar Williams concert in a city close to home. It was my first time seeing her, and Kelsey's, I don't know, umpteenth? Who knows. Dar's music is fantastic when you listen to on CD; in person, it's even better.

So now, I owe Kelsey big. She's introduced me, literally, to two famous people. I have an inkling that maybe Kelsey herself will be famous someday, too. And I can say, I knew her when...

Ha ha! Famous for what?!

I think I'm good at propelling other people toward their dreams... can I get famous for that? :-) I'm a very supportive friend.

And, for the millionth time, I'm so, SO glad you braved the late hour to come with me. My heart is happy.
