stay up till when, you say?

So Ani Difranco was on Jay Leno last night, and as we all know, I am enamored with Ani. If you don't already know, you can read about my infatuation here and here.

I am not so much a Leno fan, choosing Letterman on the rare occasion that I am able to stay conscious beyond the 10 O'clock news. I am, after all, an OLD DYKE, we've recently discovered.

After enduring Leno's dry and witless monologue, I was shocked and appaled to realize that Kathy Lee Gifford was the first guest, which was extremely disapointing because he also had Steve Carell on. I HEART Steve Carell. But that damned Kathy Lee must have drone on and on so much that she put me to sleep, next thing I knew I was hearing friggin' Conan's monologue, and had completely slept through Ani! I really must be getting old. Luckily we live in the day of instant access to everything online, so I found last nights Ani Difranco on Jay Leno clip - she played "Gravel" which is one of my favorite Ani songs. I love it when she rocks out. I love her ballads and I love her jazzy and folksy stuff, but when her tough girl persona takes control and the Buffalo chick with an attitude comes out, STEP BACK!

So, if you're like me and missed it, or just want to see it again, here's last night's appearance on Leno.

I'm glad I read the rest of your post, because I was just about to go find a clip of her for you. That's why I don't watch those shows anymore. I can find the specific clip I want online.

My poor mother will sit through these shows or worse she'll hear about somebody saying something and not know what it was all about. I usually find it online and tell her about it or send her a link to the video.

Wow....I cannot fall asleep before 1ish....ever. Unless I pass out drunk or something ;). But Kathy Lee might kill me too. she is like insta-coma.

Jay - Awww, thanks! I appreciate the concern for my addiction ;)
I was just mad that I didn't see it in real time, but eh, it's all good.
Karen - I used to suffer horrible insomnia too, I think that my epilepsy medications and the well, the wine to be honest have more to do with my inability to stay awake these days. This med I've been on for the past couple of years kicks my butt at night! If our house ever catches on fire in the middle of the night, I'm in trouble.
