i guess blogger got my letter--shit seems to be working again. 'bout time, if you ask me. so. this is a post that should have aired on wendesday, but has been delayed over and over and over again due to factors beyond my control. no, i haven't got anything to show you from europe yet. yes, it's still coming. i am actually going to drag everything to the beach with me and do it there.
countdown or ANYTHING. we have just been too busy, and the planning of the europe trip sort of trumped the beach until we got home. then being sick and having surgery trumped the beach. but now, the beach is upon me!!! jeff and carrie and ella are already in town. the sam, she will be here today. brent, too. meredith tomorrow morning. and then, by tomorrow afternoon, i will be sitting on this here porch with a drink in my hand and a smile on my face. did i happen to mention that this year's beach house has both a hot tub and a golf cart? i can't wait to get down there and just chill. i can't wait to see everyone. and to kick things off right--tonight, the hippie, the sam and i are going to see nine inch nails--we should all be totally deaf by morning! and as a bonus to that, i found out just this morning that bauhaus is opening for them. i swear, i thought peter murphy was dead. i mean, he's always LOOKED dead... anyway--bauhaus is one of the beloved bands of my youth, so getting to see them is an unexpected bonus! i may have to double the amount of eyeliner i was planning to wear... wonder where the hell my combat boots are... hmmmm...
big bad voodoo daddy the weekend after the beach! whoo hoo!!! i absolutely adore them! and last night, as i had dinner with my friend amy, she told me she and kelly were going, too, which is a TOTAL bonus. it's an outdoor concert with the NC symphony, and it promises to be absolutely fabulous. there will be snooty tailgating with my little teak picnic table, real dishes, and lots of wine and cheese. hopefully it will be like last year's pink martini concert experience, redux.
just think people--next time y'all hear from me, it'll be from the beach. :)
