weekend report  
So, the chili turned out good. Although today might be the last day I can eat it before freezing the rest.

Saturday, K. and I were just about to leave for a pub crawl with some friends when we got a phone call from our pal Lee who had an extra ticket to Elvis Costello to offer me. Upon hearing that news K. immediately began to hop up and down, excitedly vibrating herself into the dimension of happy excitement.

So, I sent her off with the free ticket and went pub crawling without her, which as it turned out, meant staying out far later and getting far drunker than I would have had she been here. There were many, many shots being purchased and I foolishly drank them all regardless of what was in them. Hopefully, I was an entertaining drunk, rather than an annoying or embarassing one.

Needless to say, I was properly hungover the whole next day, which included a viewing of "Wild at Heart" and attending a co-worker's housewarming party that was full of young children.

Listening to: Voxtrot - "Long Haul"

Oh man! But how was the concert?

Ah, yes, the concert!

Apparently, he was playing with an orchestra rather than a rock band and most of the songs were not the classic hits. He did do "Veronica" and "Watching the Detectives" and "Shipbuilding" and a couple others.

Yeah, he has a really huge catalog, and I know he's not very into playing the old stuff. Still, he's one of those people I would love to see in concert, but will never be able to afford.

His wife Diana Krall has some serious pipes.
I love the description "a shot of whiskey with a spoonful of honey" that I read some where to describe her voice.

What is that next to her right index finger? I'm confused.

(But that outfit? Totally hot.)

I was trying to figure that out too. My best guess is that it's lipstick.

Nope, it's a small revolver.

Any idea who she is? She looks familiar.

I think it's Mila Kunis, the woman from "That 70's Show" and the voice for Meg on "Family Guy."

That's kinda who I thought she was, too.

My assumption was that it was a ball gag, the ball being the dark spherical bit in her hand, and the dangling bits the, umm, strappy thing. But maybe I'm just a perv who wants it to be.

I admire your honesty. More pervs should be true to what they are.
Pallaspallasathene8 on September 10th, 2007 11:33 pm (UTC)
She's cute. I hopes you have more of her.
TypeFiend™typefiend on September 10th, 2007 11:43 pm (UTC)
She's definitely got me trigger happy!

Hmm. That's weird.
O.K. The Status had gone from odd to a little weird.

If you recall you were talking about that specific Polyphonic Spree album the other day, and I noted it was an odd coincidence that I was looking to buy it or their 2nd album pretty much just before I looked at your page.

Now you say you watched Wild At Heart over the weekend, and I just watched it for the first time on DVD (because I am going through a Lynch phase it seems.) I have to say weird because I put the damn thing in the DVD player Sunday.

So I am wondering, would a movie like that actually help a hangover?

Now a third obscure coincidence and I will have to change the status to Level Three (Freaky)

Well. If I sound nuts. That's O.K. I'm anonymous anyway.

Re: Hmm. That's weird.
Heh... maybe it was just a Wild at Heart kind of day!

I think it was actually a pretty good hangover movie since most of the scenes had so little to do with anything that went before. Like I was watching a new movie every five-ten minutes, so I didn't have to remember anything.

Of course, I may just be thinking that because of the hangover.
