Sometimes I wonder about the lasting impressions I make on strangers. Not like a "Oh my God, does that girl think this outfit look stupid?" type wondering, more like, "I wonder if I've ever said or done anything that stayed with a complete stranger for a long time?"

Case in point—I simply cannot listen to The Light of a Fading Star without growling the line "And the light..." and balling up my fists like a really drunk guy I saw at a Flogging Molly show in Arizona in 2005. Seriously. Six years later, and I'm still doing it.

I wonder if anyone ever imitates me like I imitate that guy? And all I have to do is sing "And the light..." and my sister and brother-in-law know exactly who I'm talking about too. I wonder if that guy knows he's famous. Well, to us.
