Mischief. Mayhem. Wardrobe.

“Simple thing where have you gone?” 
If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person? I once wrote that I woke up in a tree. That wasn't exactly the truth, but this weekend I woke up in a forest! Snow White found refuge with the dwarfs in an enchanted forest. In Grimm's Fairy Tales, the hero goes into an enchanted forest and finds a place of transformation.

My problem isn't transformation, it's looking in the wardrobe and finding towels instead of Narnia. I'm new in this city, and I'm down for a few nights. These halls may not be a home, but I decided to go ahead and lay down.

Last weekend I tried to start a revolution from my bed, but instant messaging took me on a journey instead. I have been impressed with the easygoing attitude in Leeds and take it for granted. Other cities don't have the same tolerance and it's a shame because there's no rest for the wicked. No harm, their armed. Setting off all your alarms! I attended an event on Friday but unfortunately the signal wasn't right and I didn't last the night. The "Flaming Moe" provided another memorable situation; the complimentary tip afterwards exceeding expectation. Anticipation has the habit of setting everyone up for disappointment in the evening's entertainment. But tonight there'll be some cocktails ― tonight there'll be a revelation regardless of what has gone before!
