Hello my lovely DBAWISers!  I missed you all last week in my absence.  And, of course, thank you to the lovely Emer Schlosser for covering for me in my North by North East prep insanity.  Yes, I survived, as evidenced by the existence of this column.  As per usual, it was a hell of a time.  I reconnected with old friends, made new ones, I even met a few people that I greatly admire, which is always a trip.  I’ll be expounded on the musical adventures on my Examiner page, so for this edition of my Tuesday storytime, I want to talk about something I’ve never done at NXNE before.  This year, I popped my NXNE FILM cherry, and I want to tell you all about it.

I also remember the sharp glances Mercedes would throw our way if we started to get out of line. Loved your column and had to pay my respects. As you know my Mom rocks (and I think Kootch still owes her a couple of hundred bucks).
