Beirut hits the road!

Guy from Beirut, I bet you want a comely lady friend to travel beside you on your topsy-turvy, vaguely Jazz Age-y journeys through France and Eastern Europe. I am not hitting on you, because I do not think that you are hot. But my French is pretty decent when I am drunk (or maybe I just think I'm better at everything than I actually am when I'm drunk--imagine that!), I have a jaunty wardrobe of passably vintage clothes, and I know how to properly prepare absinthe. I have been to Transylvania!!! So as you see I am more than qualified to not work an office job anymore and not pay rent anymore and just hop trains with wandering gypsy musicians as we collect wild stories and beautifully melancholy indie pop songs together. Also I can tell the difference between a good latte (Climpson and Sons, I love you. You live on in my heart.) and a BAD latte (pretty much every coffeeshop in Minneapolis.)

PS--Your mustache is awesome.
