In even better news, mom-in-law (Mark's step-mother), was sweet and funny and delightful last night. *does double take* Who's that masquerading as my mother-in-law and what have they done with Peggy????? Heee. Maybe she's only a bitch when she's at home and has guests in her house? *crosses fingers*
I need to amend my list of badns that I've seen, from my meme yesterday. I forogt a couple of important ones. First off, The Stunning. I was friends with the drummer's sister, who was a classmate of mine in Ireland, and then I had one of the members, I think probably the drummer (cannot for the life of me remember today, for some reason), as my professor for a course on traditional Irish music. It was one of the most delightful classes I ever took. I learned the difference between a jig, reel, hornpipe, learned about sean-nos, learned about traditional Irish instruments like the uillean pipes and the bodhran, and generally just thoroughly enjoyed myself. The lectures were postponed several times during the term so that the professor could go and perform with the Stunning as opening act for Bob Dylan and for Van Morrison. Heee. It was very amusing and very enlightening, and the professor was GORGEOUS! To all my Irish friends, whatever happened to that band? Are they still around? I've looked and looked to purchase their cds since I came home and have never been able to find them.
Also need to add Canada (my nephew's band) and Frank Allison and the Odd Sox to my list of bands that I've seen.
Stevie, did you get the ES stills I emailed you? Just making sure they went through alright as sometimes my email plays games with me.
Bid on an amusing shirt yesterday on Ebay. No clue if I'll win it or not. It's a bright yellow "dressing room staff" shirt from the Vertigo tour. Heee. I don't normally go for the local staff shirts, but when I saw "dressing room staff" I couldn't pass it up. *giggle*
Off to get some work done, or at least to try to. Thank God it's Friday! Hope you all have a good day! *snuggles flist*
