Friday was one long day and my poor feet hurt to much at by the end of it. It started off all fine, I went to work, but unlike the previous two fridays, there was no beer-going-away party to go to so I had to actually work the whole time. I agreed to meet Linda and Rachael at Bar Louie for a drink before heading over to Loopy Yarns for the book signing for Franklin Habit, rock star number one. I came to say hi mostly, I didn't need to spend any money and besides, his book would make a great suggestion to give relatives for Festivus gifts. Everyone was nice, the store looked great and full of yarn, Franklin was adorable as ever, it was lovely. By the time we were finished we were famished and found a nice bar/restaurant in the area to eat at. I don't spend much time in Printers Row, and while not a large area it still has a nice old feeling. I got lucky and found something to eat on the menu that fit into my diet just fine, a whole wheat wrap with hummus, spinach, carrot and apple, with a side of fruit. We talked and ate, discussed life and money, love and the lack of it, basically a good night out for a group of gals.
Sometimes less is more, and my cheap little camera took this cool rock-god-like picture.
My cousin and his little hobby band, AKA The Academy Is, has a concert that night as some venue you might have heard of, The House of Blues. Since I am one of the few with his number, I called him up and managed to get a couple of comped tickets. So that night after Rock Star Franklin, we saw Rock Star Adam. Kinda weird, I remember babysitting him and when he was young he looked EXACTLY like a young Kurt Cobain, freaky now considering he's in a band. The show was enjoyable and I met up with my other cousin Patricia but managed to avoid evil aunt.
Awesome picture taken by Rachael's fancy-shmancy phone.
It took me a week to get this post together and it's late, so I'm off to bed with more to follow soon.
PS-I'm well on my way knitting up the second sleeve, finally!
