I know I have been a bit neglectful in the blogosphere lately, but fear not, I am about to become even more so. We're making the big trek across the prairies in the morning, Manitoba bound, to attend the wedding of the century.
The road snacks have been bought, the delicates laundered, and the road tunes are soon to be organized. The cat has been spending the day outside, so has not yet noticed the suitcases being hauled out of the closets. She is going to be pissed when she realizes what's going on, and no doubt will be really bitchy to the cat sitter. She generally is.
I have decided on a polka dot dress as a stand-in for the Xena Warrior Princess outfit in which to perform the wedding ceremony. It's not the Hutterite-chic type of polka dot, though, more the Betty Boop type, with large white dots on a black dress. This way I figure if a Yatzhee game breaks out, I will be ready.
And when we return on Monday, it will be right into preparation for the Calgary Folk Festival. I was given my volunteer schedule the other day and it is really pretty sweet. Working the setup on Thursday allows me to get 4 hours done before the music even begins.
And naturally I would be remiss if I didn't at least leave you with some shameless self-promotion, so please feel free to download my latest BC Musician Magazine article, SK8R MUZK: Not Just for Mall Punks. It'll be like I never left.
See you soon, my darlings! I'll miss you, make sure you miss me back.
