May 17, San Mateo, CA: HOT! So hot. I felt physically drained today. But I didn't feel cramped or encroached upon. I didn't feel like I couldn't be myself or not share something that I was unhappy about (even though nothing like that came up). Not that anyone should feel these things, necessarily. But I have been there many times. I should say that I have let myself go there many times. Not today, though.
And I got to see another amazing performance by Ben Folds. Musical genius.
