And for those of you in DC -- Fiona Freakin' Ritchie's going to be at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival sometime during its run from next Wednesday to the following Sunday (25th through the 29th). She's freakin' Scottish! Who'da thought that? If anyone goes, please get me an autograph and an audiotape of her making lewd cooing noises and sighing my name. Thanks!
