Things and Other Things

Ok, so I've done about 3 billion things since the lasted time I posted. Mostly I've been rolling around the East coast up and down. Tim and I, posing as our band Captain #1 went on tour for a little over two weeks. It was my first real experince on a semi-long band outing and it went better than expected. Tim and I were still together when it was all over so I think that says something good about our relationship.

There are many stories to tell, but I most want to mention the one where we had to (got to?) hear a guy throw up on his girlfriend in bed. I don't think I need to say anything more than that. Also we had some great shows, and some horrible ones. After a venue in Detroit canceled the show on us after we had been there for an hour, my sister and her boyfriend Greg were forced to accompany us as we followed around some teenagers trying to save the show, and wondered whether one of their Moms was going to call the cops on us (Sorry, guys!).

After we got back from tour we drove down to Florida for Tim's birthday because you can get into Disneyworld for free. That was fun, although pretty expensive for me because I had to pay my way in. We actually went Disney Hollywood Studios, aka MGM. I secretly wanted to ride the Tower of Terror all day, but it was Tim's birthday so I followed his lead. At the ticket booth they gave him a birthday button with his name on it so every single Disney staffer that we passed yelled out, "Happy Birthday, Tim!" It was kind of awesome, and all but one seemed to really mean it. We also volunteered for one of those stunt shows where they blow up things and pour water on you.

This weekend is Athfest. We'll be playing at Nucci's space on Saturday night around 11!

This has been and will continue to be a very busy summer. July means a craft show in Asheville and then a trip to the west coast to visit Miss Emaline!
