I've actually been getting out of the house!
I'm almost gonna have to break this down day by day to catch up.
I think I left off last Thursday....
On Thursday night, Mitch, Casey,Adam (dude)& Donna, & Mike all headed over to Martyr's for the Rockabilly night. don't ask me what it's called cus hell if i know.
What i do know is that it is bizarre to see all of those peeps dressed to the hilt. pomps,hornrim glasses, stylee geetars & double basses. there were like 20 bands and it was pretty damn cool. I guess I'm always a little amuzed at "retro" shit. i really don't get it to tell ya the truth, but what do you expect from someone that has futurist tendencies?
I saw Crystal there & afterward we got some diner food.
all in all a pretty damn good time.
took friday off from socializing & did stuff around the house.
nothing exciting that i can think of from that day.
Saturday night I went over to Patricia's place(s),met up with her at the old apartment & then headed over to the new one.
thank the divine that we can finally hang out again.
i missed her so much when we didn't see each other.
We talked all kindsa good stuff (as always) and i brought home the bass that i'm buying from her.
spent the rest of the night listening to music & smilin & dancin around the apartment like i usually do after seein her. (wonder if she knows that...hmmm...well, she just might now! ha!)
On Sunday I worked & then headed up to Casey's for his & Christine's BBQ.
I was there from about 4:30 till almost midnight.
I think i drank more beer that night than i had in months. the food was good, as was the company.
There was a bluegrass band that showed up after their gig over at the Metropolis Coffee Shop (i don't know what they are called...maybe Tumbleweeds?)
and they played for a few hours in the back yard.
perfect music for a backyard BBQ!
It was great to see Mitch who i hadn't seen in a long long time.
also good to see casey who i hadn't seen in a few months.
Now they are both en route to key west (probably already arrived actually).
This weekend is Around the Coyote & i think Derek & I are going to go check it out.
Next Wednesday I'm meeting up with Patricia down at the UIC campus, where i lived the first two years i was in chicago.
it should be a bit nostalgic & fun. I haven't been down there in years.
I've basically been feeling really wonderful & slightly tweaked lately.
It seems like so many things are happening at once.
glad I was getting all into zen right as this stuff came on!
it's really helping me remain calm & balanced.
I can't wait to see what's just around the corner....hmmmmm
