Is it spring break yet?
Ah…the days creep by, and I try desperately to cling to my sanity for just a little while longer.
Here’s what’s been going on since I last checked in:
Saw I Love You, Man. Cute. Charming cast makes up for somewhat lackluster script.
Visited several furniture stores looking for new living room furniture options. Didn’t fall in love with anything.
Hung out with Rand’s brother and played Rock Band for the first time. Fun! I was the singer, because I didn’t have to operate any controls. Overall, did pretty well. Discovered that I don’t know the song Everlong *at all*. I wasn’t even in the same area code as the right notes.
Dinner at Amy’s Place.
Saw Greg Klyma at the Sportsmen’s Tavern. Great show, and great people to hang with. (More on this when pics get uploaded.)
Purchased material for bedroom curtains, to be made by my mom.
Got invited to church by random couple at Wegmans while browsing Nature’s Marketplace.
Started reading Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer.
Greg Klyma, Tom Bianchi, Ookla the Mok at Broadway Joe’s.
Doors at 7:30
I posted the lyrics to Greg Klyma’s wedding song for us over at the wedding blog. I never did find them…I had to email Greg and ask him to send them to me. He happily obliged.
Speaking of Greg, don’t forget…show at Broadway Joe’s this Friday w/Tom Bianchi and Ookla! Details a few posts back.
Text stolen from an email Rand sent his friends:
Sixteen years ago, Ookla the Mok performed their first live show at a bar in Buffalo called Broadway Joe’s. Ten years ago, Greg Klyma left the security of a day job and began the life of a professional touring musician. Ookla and Greg (along with friends Tom Bianchi and Sick) will celebrate these variant anniversaries by performing a show together at Broadway Joe’s on August 1.
This show will serve as CD release party for Greg’s new album, “Rust Belt Vagabond,” as well as a return for Ookla to the venue that started it all.
The Place: Broadway Joe’s
3051 Main Street (Buffalo)
The Date: Friday, August 1, 2008
The Time: Doors at 7:30, show at 8:00
The Price: Ten dollars at the door.
Please help us spread the word — let anyone you know who loves Greg Klyma or Ookla the Mok know about this show. While you’re at it, let anyone you know who you *think* might love Ookla the Mok or Greg Klyma know about the show as well.
And as always, thanks for the support!
I posted a long-ish and rather photo heavy post about Greg Klyma and Tom Bianchi’s performance at our reception over at the wedding blog. Enjoy!
