Okie doke, I'm going to stay on the topic of gender here. Have you ever read the book She's Come Undone (1992) by Wally Lamb? It's about a young woman who goes to a mental institution and tries to rebuild her life when she gets out. The remarkable part is the story is written from the perspective of a woman by a male author. Wally Lamb is spectacular at writing in the female voice.

Wig in a Box is my guaranteed pick me up song for when I feel down.
It always works! Especially when I through on the video from the movie version and see the hairy drummer with the little suspender supported drum kit.
