Today has been a rather exciting day over at our place because Geoff & I have been finalizing travel plans! In May, for his 30th birthday, we'll be visiting Chicago. I'm finally going to meet Caitlin and Mia, and once again see Allison! Then in the fall we'll be heading off to Portland, Oregon. I booked a room at the Ace Hotel. Fancy fancy!
I am just bursting. It is so nice to have something to look forward to over the next little while, even if it means that we'll be eating lentils and rice from the bulk food store every day for the next six months.
Chicago & Portland: see you real soon.
Oh and the Joanna Newsom show was pretty good. I don't feel a particular connection to this newest album (not yet, anyhow), and my mind wandered away quite a lot. Still, it was a nice change of pace for a Saturday evening, despite the cold, cold rain.

Katie, thenextarrow: Thank you!
BIG tinsel: Thanks again for the giveaway!
Melinda Josie: Did you see her at the Mod Club? If so, I got teary at that show, too! Despite the annoying thumping coming from downstairs. She forgot lyrics at this show too.
tara-lynn: Well, we've been in touch, but I'm so sorry to have missed you.
Flor M.: Who's lucky? Me? Hehe.
Nightjar Books: I didn't see you! As you know, since it's a few days later, ha.
anneemall: Oh, so many people hate her voice! I never had that experience because I think I read about it first and was expecting it to be much, much worse. I'm pretty fond of her kooky voice.
goldendovedesign: Thank you, it was a good show!
