Beans aren't sticky

Apparently there are a lot of hilarious pictures of me out there. This picture rivals the laughtasticness of the "me and chips" picture. There is at least an explanation for (most of) this picture. Jeb wears a helmet because it's part of his gig... which is being a rock star. They need a new bassist (for Hector on Stilts (look them up they're great)). He needed to hang up posters about their need for a new bassist and I was right there... Apparently I'm not very sticky though and the poster didn't want to stick to me. Good to know I have a defense against "kick me" signs.
Melissa captured the look of amusement/confusion here perfectly. It's hilarious. Apologies for cross-blogging and picture re-posting- Our adventures need to be shared with the masses :)

New York City! (say it like it's that salsa commercial)

I had so much fun with my girls (and Tom!) in the city. Yay for friends!! Melissa documented it (she has a future in photojournalism). Read all about it on her blog!!

I hate change

The book shop had it's last night of music last night- we had some fun. I was really really sad though... more sad than I though I would be. But then I heard that the space that was Changing Spaces is becoming a new gallery and they might have live music there again. Life is just death and rebirth constantly- coming and going.

I hate change. All good things should stay good things forever and I don't care if there are new good things that might even be cooler than the old good things- I want my things I like to stay as I like them.

::stamps her foot and pouts::


I do like change after it's happened and the dust has settled.
I do like new good things.

I'm not sure if I'm still talking about the bookshop closing.

Too Cute

Me loves the banjo and Joe! Melissa took this awesome pic :) What a fun day it was! Lots of lovely friends (librarians did represent too- see Ivy's flip flop in the bottom right hand corner- though we'll wait for the next time to unveil our band). It was great!

Art on Lark

Mike Farrell is a fantastic photographer. Here are the pictures from Art on Lark he took as he strolled by:

102.7 EQX are nice people with a nice dog, and they let me stay under their tent. But it was windy!

Here is the picture that was on the cover of sunday's capital region section of the TU!

Here is me in the wind!

Elvis, Mike Doughty and Art on Lark

Ok here's what's happened recently. On my birthday the Kamikazi hearts played and sang me happy birthday. Then the following day Mother Judge and Steve Candlin played and sang me happy birthday and also my parents and friends did as we ate steak and sweet potatoes. Then I went to the Elvis festival and met lots of Elvises... Elvi... whatever the plural for Elvis is. I got my picture taken with one in a purple suit... my favorite Elvis won the competition (he was the young Elvis- see the metroland article ) !!

Then my friend Nate and the piano bar sang me happy birthday.

Fast forward through a week of work and what not.

My friend Jaime is moving and I am sad but we had a great time hanging out with her and my BFF Megan in Troy and I get to see her this week- which is good. Plus, Arizona is a pretty neat place to move to I guess.

I played at Art on Lark (check out the cover of today's Capital Region section of the Times Union to see a picture). It was awesome. Matt Durfee and Mother Judge and John Brodeur all played too and they were fantastic. It was really windy though. Joe and I played some tunes too, he is a great banjo player (pictures to come shortly). The people from EQX shared their tent with me and gave me cheetos.

And then last night Anne and Angela and I went to see Mike Doughty (the lead singer from soul coughing) . Harrith and Wendy were there and Wendy and I tried to teach Angela to shake it but she's from Seattle and can't. Then Angela made friends with the drummer and we got to eat Mike Doughty's birthday cake! ( I fed some to Anne and Muppet). And then they were supposed to come out with us but we went to the Ale House and then Anne made pancakes.

Sooooo exciting.

So Next weekend we're going to NYC to get crafty and visit my friend Tom too! Hooray!
