Such a lovely weekend

Monday, October 10th, 2005 | Life in Czeltistan

Nothing like a 4-day weekend to make you… well… really depressed about having to go back on the next Monday. But the four days off sure were all sorts of lovely.

Thursday, I didn’t even bother changing out of my ‘jammies. Just sat around all day, watching movies and taking care of stuff online. It was soooooooo nice.

Friday, I went apple picking with my friend Kristel (and picked the smallest, cutest apple. It was darned tasty, too.), went to see Serenity again (Have you seen it yet? You really, really should. Really.) and then wandered around my favorite bookstore for awhile.

Saturday was actually kind of busy. Errands were run and Goodwill donations were dropped off. (Yay! I get 1/4 of my dining room back!) Then Christyl and I went to her folks’ church’s spaghetti dinner, did a little grocery shopping (that was about $50 more in booze than it was in actual food), whipped up a couple of batches of tasty foods to eat for dinners over the next week or so and had a cocktail or two, then went out to see Nick Pipitone and STaLL.

And finally, Sunday. Ah, Sunday. What a lovely day that was. The Packers won big. The Red Wings won big. And, best yet, the Posies were in town last night. I am still kicking myself for not bringing the camera. There were probably only around 100 people in the club, so no one was more than 15-20 feet from the stage (especially when Jon & Ken decided they wanted to move the stage out onto the club floor). I was a little sad they didn’t play “My Big Mouth,” but I more than forgive them for the oversight, considering how hard they rocked the rest of the show. (And when I mentioned it to Jon afterward, he laughed and said “We don’t know that one.” Ok. So asking someone to remember their 15-year-old song might be a bit much when they haven’t played in awhile.) And I can’t say enough good things about the guys in the band. Very, very friendly. Seem like genuinely nice guys. (And they were selling their own merch, so chalk up “hard working” as well.) Oranger opened, which is terribly convenient, as Matt Harris is in both bands. (Ok, so it’s not terribly convenient for Matt, who has to play two sets in a row.) Gawds, it was a fantastic show. Saw loads of friends I haven’t seen in awhile, too, and visited the club I used to work at for the first time in probably 10 years. I’m paying for it all today, though. I could use a couple more hours of sleep, boy howdy. Yes, I could.

Sounds brilliant. Who’d have thought you’d be able to see Auer & Stringfellow together again in 2005?

Pity you had no camera – tell us, is Ken Stringfellow’s hair still black?

It most certainly is.

At least someone remembered a camera. Found these shots and these (there are 7 more shots after that one, if you count the Atomic Records pix) on Flickr. Thanks, stephanie anne and cabb, whoever you are.
