Ran Away, Part 2
You know those days where everything just seems to line up and work? Lots of stuff gets done without any feeling of being rushed or frantic? Yeah, somehow we managed to have a whole weekend like that. I'll do the abbreviated version here. (Why? Because it's my website and I totally use it for shameless reminders of where I went when and oh what was that cool restaurant and when did we visit those folks and a whole list of other things. That's why. I totally encourage you to go find a more interesting corner of the internet today if [...]
Friday afternoon we set kittens up to be self sufficient for a day or two, tossed a change of clothes in a bag, flung some things in the car, and ran away. Our favorite band, Jukebox The Ghost, was playing in Ithaca. We were unable to resist. If you find them in a town near you, you shouldn't resist either. There's lots of yarny stuff to report too, but it will have to wait till later in the week. But don't worry, it's coming. I just have to see if I can get my camera to behave long enough to [...]
As part of my ongoing efforts to increase knitting awareness in my community, I took the knitting on a little excursion Sunday evening. The Boy, the knitting (a new project, I'll show it to you later this week), and I went to one of our local musical establishments, The Beachland Ballroom. Sunday evening's performance was provided by The Two Man Gentlemen Band. I'd first heard about them on our local NPR station and was immediately smitten. When we learned they were playing here, we made plans to attend. It was an absolutely delightful show. Difficult to describe mind you, but [...]

There are people out there who say they don't like classical music. I would suggest that what at least a few of these people actually dislike sitting still and being quiet while wearing fancy clothes. Because sometimes that's what's involved in going to see such music performed. Now I'm not presumptuous enough to suggest that this is the case for everyone, but I think there might be at least a few folks for whom the outfits and the environment are the deal breaker rather than the music. If that's the case for you (and if you're in this general area), [...]
Last Thursday, we headed over to Lakewood to see a show by Puscifer. Some of The Boy's friends from high school were in town for it. They had extra tickets and asked if we'd like to come along. Working on the theory that leaving the house and interacting with people is often more interesting than staying home in my pajamas and interacting with the cats, I went. It was...bracing. I actually liked much of the music, but some of the more, um, theatrical aspects of the show didn't appeal quite as much. I decided to take a little break in [...]
