people are places

I'm heading into a bit of a busy week. But in a flying, concerting, visiting kind of way, the best kind of way.

I'll be jetting off to the coast on Tuesday morning, where I'll spend a few days hanging out with the OFKAR. Since she couldn't decide whether or not to come home for spring break, the mountain decided to come to Mohammed. The fact that Gang of Four are playing a show on Tuesday night played a pretty big factor in that turn of events, especially after my recent failure to procure Pixies tickets.

I'm really looking forward to visiting with some coastal friends, whom I haven't seen since the fall, and checking out some newly discovered restaurants, tea shops, and record stores that I have been hearing about.

And of course, there is very little as delightful as the simple joy of hanging out with the OFKAR in our hotel room after a day spent traipsing around downtown. Pyjama-clad, cuddled on the chesterfield, watching episode after episode of Location, Location, Location, featuring the blandly soothing Phil Spencer. Life is good.

But because the coming month is nothing if not an embarrassment of cultural riches, before my trip I have PechaKucha night to look forward to before I leave. I can sleep on the plane, right?

What are you up to this week?

I'm so excited for your trip!

This week: dinner with the family tomorrow night, Telegraph article(s), volunteering, and a hair appointment.

I'm super bummed about the week because my brother & SIL are moving to the coast on Thursday, though...:(

Me too, WC, can't wait to see everybody, including Our Lady of the Chinese Sitcoms at the corner store and everybody's best friend who works at the hotel.
You've got a busy week! It's such a shame that your family members are moving away, but on the plus side, you have built in coastal accommodations.

It's going to be a long week for me so I am looking forward to seeing you on Thursday!

Hope you have a safe flight and speak with you soon!

p.s. new Radiohead! Yippee!

I can't wait, Al! Hopefully we can help you decompress after your long week.

So excited about The King of Limbs!!!

nothing so exciting around these parts this week...however, just around the corner is March 5 when Tuffy P and I will be enjoying Levon Helm and Lucinda Williams at Massey Hall.

Sounds like a great trip! I am running around like crazy this week, in anticipation for leaving it all behind next week. :)

Oh that should be a good show, Mr Anchovy! What an inspired pairing!

Ditching it all for somewhere warm, I hope, Lesley? You know how to live, guhrl!
