My niece is a rock star
Category: family
At least, she looks like one.








Snap shot from the Exploratorium Roof Cam. That's my niece in the middle with her (WIKIPEDIA - Webkinz)Webkinz cat, Fluffy, on her head.

p.s. -- next time I'll know where to park my car so my estrip bumper sticker can be in the shot, haha.

She loves that cat all right! And she had to take a picture of Fluffy with Pookie because they were going to miss him so much. I probably won't get a copy of that picture since she took it with her camera. But I'm making my sister send me a copy of the pictures she took when my niece was invited to tour the cockpit before the flight back. She got to turn on the AC and wear the co-pilot's hat.

First of all, you really shouldn't let a small child around that carpet! I'm surprised she didn't just get sucked right in. Secondly - did her cat & Pookie hit it off? I bet they could have some interesting offspring, eh? A perfect little dander-free kennel for Paul.

time vs. money vs. happiness

I am woefully losing that battle.

In a nutshell. I promised my Grinderman (aka Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) ticket for tonight to a true fan so I could see Eisley. You've never heard of them, but when I saw them the time before last, I was also short on time due to leaving for a 2 week vacation the next day. Seemed like a stupid idea to see a band instead of packing in advance of my 7am flight. BUT that show resounded in my mind for the entire trip. Certainly got my $16 worth.

Tonight I have to bike down to GAMH to pick my my ticket when doors open at 8pm and hand it over to Carolin, then backtrack to the Swedish American Hall for Eisley (show starts at 7:30!!! who the hell starts a show at 7:30? Luckily there's one opening band, but still).

So Tegan and Sara was fucking amazing. They "warned" the audience they would be playing their new album in it's entirety first, and they went straight through all 14 songs. There were a few good ones, but nothing remotely comparable to the second half of their set. Damn, they wrote some great fucking tunes.

I would tell you more about how and why I dyked out for the show, and how they played Kimya Dawson - I Will Never Forget before the show, and about running into Steve #1 [inlink]twisted,36581[/inlink] at the free Virgin in-store show, and the goddamn blood blister I got while contorting myself to chain my bike outside the store because I was in a hurry...



...but I have to get going.

I thought it was a voting mark when I saw it first.

That must hurt like crazy. I am sorry, hope it resolves soon!

The only Eisley that I know about is/are from Texas. So I am dying to know about the Eisley that you are going to see that I don't know about. Please and Thank You.

... to be continued.. RIGHT?!

freakin cliffhangers.. haha

yeh, I've been warming up to the sounds of Tegan and Sara. I'm still on the fence.

(thank god for flakes.)

Persistence paid off! I found a seller with one Tegan and Sara ticket at face value plus fees. Her original buyer flaked out, so I'm going to see them tonight! Yay!
