A little Alanis heals all wounds...

Boy...I've been up on 12 the past few days huh? Stressed out, letting people and things get to me...and then I remembered something I discovered a few weeks ago at the RID conference in San Antonio.

I was standing in Starbucks waiting for my chai latte and listening to the Oh-So-Hip tunage that they always have playing in that Oh-So-Hip type of establishment when I suddenly recognized some of the words. It was "Perfect" by Alanis Morissette...but it was a different version than I'd heard before.

"Jagged Little Pill Acoustic" is one of the coolest albums I've heard in awhile. JLP was an important album in my life anyway, because it came out the summer I was in Scunthorpe and I LOVED it. Every time I hear "You Oughta Know," I remember asking the man in the record shoppe for JLP because "I've been dying to get it for the longest time..." only to have him tell me it had only just come out in the UK. Ooops...

Anyway, I've been listening to it since I downloaded it and it's amazing how much more calm I feel. I know a lot of folks aren't Alanis fans...but I think she's pretty awesome.
