Happy New Year!
I had the best new year's eve EVER. I usually do something halfway interesting if i am travelling and am always vaguely disappointed. Not this year. We went to see an old school honky tonk band called Rowdy Kate play at an beautiful historic Sacramento bar, Old Ironsides. People were all dressed up for the show in their rockabilly best and it was quite the scene. In the bathroom, the girls were standing in the mirror, using red sharpie for lipstick. One of them called herself Psycho Betty and drove a purple cadillac. Amid the freshening of their looks (short bangs, high brows), the ladies exchanged pleasantries about their jobs working for the state of California in corrections. What is a rockabilly girl to do?
