That's what Jerry asked for as a Father's Day supper - a rib steak large enough to contain a complete bone. So that's what he's getting. Eva and I will eat the little tenderloins.
And I am not fucking driving anyone to Emerge tonight. If he has a heart attack, he's got to take an ambulance.
And there is no prize for finishing the whole thing either.
Everything about the day seemed slightly larger than life. I harvested the rhubarb today as well and ended up with 25 cups of rhubarb to add to the several bags I've already got in the freezer from last year.
Anybody want any?
I guess I'll just have to do some baking so that I can put that in the freezer for a year instead.
Jer was pretty happy with his Father's Day presents:
* Wilco's Kicking Television (Live in Chicago)
* Red Hot Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium
We've been giving the Wilco cd(s) quite a few spins already today. Holy damn, do they ever sound good! I am now starting to get really really excited about seeing Wilco at Mac Hall next week. Jeff Tweedy was completely amazing at the Folk Fest last year, and now we get the whole band. Yippee!!
What is it about Jeff Tweedy's voice that is so heartbreaking? And he's not even trying to break your heart! Get it? I am trying to break your heart? Wilco song title?
Eva says there is an inherent sadness to his voice, and that could be it. There's definitely something about the timbre of it that is very compelling.
