This past Saturday I trotted down to the Starry Plough in Berkeley to see S.O.L., Monkey, and Los Hooligans. Beforehand I talked to Momser about how my life is changing. She was telling me that it was a grieving process (in more than one way) and that I needed to respect that and allow myself to go through it. She suggested a short wake, where I raised a glass to the life I knew, bid it a fond farewell, and accept its passing. I decided to celebrate life past and present with some very good friends, and, you know, beer.
I took many photos throughout the evening, but unfortunately didn’t remember that I had my
camera until after S.O.L.’s set. I really enjoyed their set, and was really intrigued with how they’ve changed over the years. I hope they play again soon, so I can maybe give it a closer listen.
Kelly made it out
Adam was on top of his game
I was looking my best (SYKE!)
AJ showed me an iPod full of pictures of his family (Side Note – have I shown you the pics on my iPod?)
I really like this Dark and Mysterious Curt
Micah was holding it down
I guess I didn’t get a picture of Dan or Donelle playing, but I got Adam dancing
Curt doing Artibella with Los Hooligans. (I saw you with a fella)
Adam & Donelle
An artsy fartsy pic I took, through the looking/pint glass.
Some may go, but I think these friends are here to stay.
Fare the well, old life. It was more fun than not while it lasted, and I’ll miss you terribly.
Death = 0
Taxes = 1
I avoided death again today. Taxes, not so much. I just finished doing my taxes and it looks like I will actually be getting a little bit back this year. Of course, I owed a little to the state, but less than what I’m getting back from the federal.
What to do with the money?
Maybe one of these:
Or a shopping spree at:
Or save it for:
So many choices. What’s a girl to do?
One of my co-workers sent me this, and I got a good chuckle out of it. If you’re at work, it’s a headphones thing.
It’s all about the Boston Market line.
Last night, I started nodding off while watching a movie at around 10. I went to bed, fell asleep, and slept through until the alarm went off at 6:00 this morning. Sleep at last. You have no idea how much better I feel.
Now if only I could make the nausea go away.
