iced tea insomniac
Tuesday, July 12, 2005

› by victoria

I drank far too much iced tea last night. With the window closed, it was hot and stifling and we turned the fan off so we could hear the music better. It's been forever since I heard the "MY HOUSE IN MONTMATRE" album, and Biff insisted that i listen to track #11...
