the funniest was that i wrote 'freektown' first by accident.
i purposefully drive a longer way to community college so that i can go through downtown (biz district), patterson park (neoyuppies), highlandtown (blue collar/breweries), fells point (fraternities/latino), greektown (greeks), hopkins bayview (section 8/drug tx), and dundalk (old tyme baltimore racism). it reminds me that baltimore is not as binary as it appears.
many years ago my boyfriend and i went to the greek festival and drank uzo until it came out of our ears. he was about 6'3" and i had to drag his mostly unconscious body into the tiny bathroom of my first apartment for him to puke there all night. i went in to check on him at like 6am and he was blubbering in the bathtub, asking if we could do intercourse. i said, "no." he blogs. i wonder if he'll ever stumble across this.
the winter has brought with it a few extry pounds on the bender tum. i have decided to do another marathon. it's in november; it's a trail run (but more gravel than trail). instead of the normal t-shirt you get fleece mittens, a sled, a thermos of hot chocolate, seasonal affective disorder, and a potbelly stove all stuffed inside a commemorative tote at the finish line. once i pay for these things i do them.
