Thank you!! I'd like to think the femininity was enhanced by my Madonna t-shirt. I think Michael Stipe would approve? R.I.P. R.E.M.!

I know you've been stymied by the injuries, so it's probably small consolation...but that's a pretty rockin' pic.
Michael Stipe from R.E.M. recommended the name for the band that would become Concrete Blonde, feeling that it fused the idea of hard rock ("concrete") with something femine/lyrical ("blonde"). This picture kind of does the same thing, fusing a pretty feminism with some suggestion of machismo and athleticism, suggested by the battle scar of a sling.
Pretty cool, I think.
