I'm getting:
Last night Ptrck and PLD and my Boyfriend and Erin Markey and The Irish Horse all came over and we had and impromptu JAZZ NIGHT. We are planning a supersecret and exciting JAZZ BRUNCH (date and location TBA). But the night was basically an exercise in ascribing things that are JAZZ, would be on a JAZZ BRUNCH MENU. I can't even begin to describe all the ideas we had. It was a very productive conversation. We all hung out in the kitchen with white xmas lights and candles and we listened to all kinds of Jazz music and drank gin and orangina (two Jazzy) things. So I'm saying: I'm thinking a lot about what is JAZZ. Positive ascription.

Some things which are JAZZ or would be at JAZZ BRUNCH:
  • Velvet
  • Champagne Jello
  • Cats (wrapped in live snakes)
  • Smoke
  • Spotlights
  • Dates wrapped in bacon with an almond inside
  • Thunderstorms
  • A live Jazz trio of cats, not wrapped in snakes, but dressed instead as humans, with the cat drummer wearing sunglasses.
  • Fake blood pellets dripping from everyone's mouth
So anyway among these and other ideas: this picture of Joseph is totally Jazz. Happy Sunday. I'm going record shopping, for Jazz records.

Also, PS my favorite book in the whole entire world is by Toni Morrison and is titled Jazz.
