about

"Listen, then, Jane Eyre, to your sentence: to-morrow, place the glass before you, and draw in chalk your own picture, faithfully; without softening one defect: omit no harsh line, smooth away no displeasing irregularity; write under it, 'Portrait of a Governess, disconnected, poor, and plain.'"
Charlotte Brontë, 1847.

Track Name: Halal Romantic Comedy AKA Gravel Song
Maybe, I've been thinking that lately
your charms wearing off
Baby, there's a change that now maybe
it's time to come up

Pull it up like old concrete
it's time to make that change
I've had enough of this crunching nightmare
from when gravel was laid
Sift it up like autumn tree-fall
be sure to get it all done
Cos i'm moving on to better things
and I want my driveway gone

Gravel, you're the bane of my life,
make me keep thinking twice
why I bought you
twice, why i've kept you this long

Dirty, dirty old gravel, is out on my drive
and it's taking my mind off
the things that I should be doing
It's driving me mad
and it's making me sad
and i've got to be rid of it soonish

Pull it up like old concrete
it's time to make that change
I've had enough of this crunching nightmare
from when gravel was laid
Sift it up like autumn tree-fall
be sure to get it all done
Cos i'm moving on to better things
and I want my driveway gone
