Poem for Friday

Collapse )

All the excitement of my Thursday involved going to see Girlyman at Jammin' Java in the evening -- the rest of the day involved things like laundry and cleaning up the mess left over from the painters. (Well, I did watch a bunch of Doctor Who Confidentials while folding the laundry, so I really can't complain.) My mother picked up the kids for dinner so we could go out -- Jammin' Java has really great chili, which makes up for some of its drawbacks as a venue, namely that the aisles are so narrow and the seats so close together that if the person next to you is larger than a size four, you end up in each other's laps. Fortunately I was sitting between apaulled and psujedi, who had beaniekins on her other side...the two of them and I discovered Girlyman when they opened for the Indigo Girls in August.

Girlyman was playing two sets tonight, at 7:30 and 10, and we went to the early one though the band promised the second one would be 35% funnier than the first, which was pretty hilarious...they let the audience vote among "Rock Me Amadeus," "Moose in the Road" and "Thing Wild" (though they ended up doing all three eventually) and teased each other about guitar picks, missed cues and an incident involving attack seagulls at the Chesapeake House on I-95 that sounded entirely plausible. They did my very favorite of their songs, "St. Peter's Bones," and "Kittery Tide," "Hey Rose," "Superior," "Reva Thereafter," "Soldiers," "Joyful Sign," "Carols at Christmas," Paul Simon's "Born at the Right Time," Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" and a whole bunch of new songs of which my favorite was one with something about storms in the title about dealing with one's baggage.

Adam has a half day of school tomorrow, though Daniel does not...I am confused why the middle schools get out early, since, like the high schools, they don't have parent conferences, only the elementary schools. But at any rate I will have to write a Trek review around Adam and possibly his best friend, who is in Big Trouble for some unnamed misdeed so it's possible the friend will be grounded, which would actually make things more difficult for me since Adam will want my full attention if he can't go play with his best friend!
