Because of you guys and all your awesome cover suggestions I *may* have spent hundreds of dollars at iTunes in the last 24 hours. Ahem! I think that cd I am giving away might end up becoming a two disc set at the very least. Remember, you have until Tuesday to break my bank chime in with your favorites.
This has nothing to do with cover songs but I cannot stop listening to Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas and I feel compelled to confess it to you. I can’t help it! It makes me want to dance like a robot! If you’re going to BlogHer in July be forewarned, we’re having a dance-off to the song.
So not that you asked but I’ve got quite a weekend planned. Besides working on my robot dance moves (Word!), I’m going to get my hair done because the white hairs overtaketh. I can’t decide if I should grow it out a bit or keep it short. This is the dilemma of my life. Gee, I’m so tortured. I’m also going to get some pool time in. On Saturdays after class there’s the kiddie swim so my nephew likes to come. Kids swimming is one of the most adorable things. Like how they scrunch up their faces in anticipation of getting their face splashed? The cuteness slays me. I’ve got some crafty projects to finish up as well as some home improvements to tackle and the apartment building to do list is becoming quite epic.
I’m going to check out the Fremont Fair with a girlfriend and finally see a movie at the Central Cinema (they serve booze and food at tables while you watch the film!) with the Mad Irishman- they’re playing Casablanca.
Rick: It’s funny about your voice, how it hasn’t changed. I can still hear it. “Richard, dear, I’ll go with you anyplace. We’ll get on a train together and never stop – ”
Ilsa: Don’t, Rick! I can understand how you feel.
Rick: [scoffs] You understand how I feel. How long was it we had, honey?
Ilsa: [on the verge of tears] I didn’t count the days.
Rick: Well, I did. Every one of ‘em. Mostly I remember the last one. The wild finish. A guy standing on a station platform in the rain with a comical look in his face because his insides have been kicked out.
Damn, I love that movie. And Humphrey Bogart. And Ingrid Bergman.
It’s Northwest Folklife Festival this weekend too so I’m tagging along with my sister to see her friend’s band perform and then we’re going to bbq at my mom’s because HELLO it’s Memorial Day weekend and you have to bbq. It’s like an American mandate or some shit. Besides, I’ve been craving kabobs something fierce. (I am certain one or some of you can find a dirty joke in that statement.)
It’s a good thing it’s a three dayer because I have a lot of fun to fit in. I’ve heard rumors of sunny skies and warm temperatures too. I can’t wait!
Enjoy your weekend, friends.
