drive-by blogging

The Spousal Unit is safely returned from Brazil, bearing tales of Brazilian barbeques where evidently the aim is to see how much meat one can consume in a single afternoon. Needless to say, the SU was suitably impressed, considers this Nirvana, and drools a little as he talks about it.

So naturally, I am leaving him to chisel away at his jet lag this evening while I take in Sage Theatre's production of Filth. Based on my previous experiences with Irvine Welsh plays at Sage Theatre, I am chomping at the bit to see how they handle this one man play about a corrupt cop and his tapeworm.

I leave you with this week's random playlist, which didn't seem to know which way to turn, but that's okay, it's almost spring.

Have a great weekend, my pretties!

Enjoy that play as much as your hubby enjoyed that barbecued meat.

Allison said...

Glad to hear the SU returned safe and sound. From your previous reviews from the Sage, I have no doubt you'll enjoy yourself this eve! Happy weekend. :)

BBQ! Mmmmm! :)
You have a great weekend too, Barb. Enjoy the show and yes, spring is almost here, I am loving it...also means that the days of my return to Calgary are approaching too! :)

I want to check out this Brazilian BBQ business!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Except that my play featured a tapeworm and hopefully the meat didn't, they were identical experiences, Dr M.

Happy weekend to you too, Al, I hope your music night was brilliant. It was a stunning production. Details to follow.

I sure am looking forward to your return, Jas. We must have you over for dinner!

I'll have to post some photos, Mr Anchovy. It was a meat fest!

How is it that I listen to a shitload of music and still know none of the songs you posted? Unless Rhythm Nation is a cover of the Janet Jackson song.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'd be surprised if it was, Beckeye, as the Hummers are an electro-dub band. But you never know. I, of course, couldn't tell you, as I have never heard the Janet Jackson song.

MMMM.... endless MEAT!

Hi Barb - glad the SU made it back OK - haven't dropped by your fine blog in a while, though whenever I do come back the effort is reinforced by being immersed once again in your fine writing. Needless to say I am hooked again, so there are many more comments to come!

word verification = "upefroas", which we all know is a fab low-fat dessert topping made made from organic vegetable by-products and natural cane sugar...mmmmm

I sure look forward to getting together for some libations (perhaps indulging in some freshly made local upefroas as well) when I hit your town in about 10 days, Matthew. We have much catching up to do, my friend!
