before we begin, head down (well, figuratively speaking) to omg’s shop to buy some cool retro gaming keychains. you buy now!
some weeks ago i decided to roam around the county a bit, it being the weekend and i was sufficiently bored to want to roam.
cardinal roaming rule number one: don’t roam on an empty stomach. being a stickler of my own rules, i went back to the mom and pop joint i visited last time. but this time i got wise and skipped the dreadful chicken fried steak. instead, i went for the pot roast breakfast platter. yes, you heard it right. pot roast breakfast.
all i can say is this.
in fact, the food was so good it warrants a fake meme.
after my stomach was full, i ran some errands to get ready for later–there was a concert somewhere which i wanted to attend. the weather being frigging hot, i blasted the ac in my car to get some welcomed relief. after a leisurely drive (and it had to be, since i was still feeling stuffed and my driving legs weren’t functioning at 100% from the food coma), i arrived at the venue pretty early. i took a few minutes to settle in, then distracted myself by texting and messing with my blog a bit while waiting. before i knew it, the concert started. some pics of the event are below.
the very talented band is katie herzig, or kathrine hertzberg. (leetle joke :P.) ms. herzig has a great sound, and she sings well live, a rarity these days. her music is just about perfect for summer time: it’s light, whimsical, and just plain fun. her cds are great additions to any music library; be sure to check them out on pandora, itunes, last.fm, or any other place you like. oh, she has a new album coming out in september, so give it a listen. i briefed chatted with the band when they came out for a bit of meet and greet with the attendees; they couldn’t have been nicer, and were fun to talk to. they can sing AND have a sense of humor! cool. check out a vlog they did a while back.
after the concert ended, i took a leisurely drive home. by this time, the weather had cooled down considerably, so i drove part way with my windows down and music blasting. thus sayest ice cube, “today was a good day”.
this is off-topic, but a while back i mentioned that i got a moori tip to experiment with. i’m sad to report that the experiment is a total failure. it could be that i got a new moori vs. the old one, but whatever it is, the tip sucks. (some people swear by the old moori, but that wasn’t what i bought.) it offers no feel to my hand, and not able to feel the hit takes so much enjoyment away from me. so yeah, i blew good money on a worthless piece of claptrap. live and learn.
til next time, gentle readers.
