Overcast and lazy, forecast calls for dishes

Sunday afternoon, in short, almost exactly the same scenario as yesterday, except I'm full of french toast, the sink is full of dishes, and I'm planning on going to the free pilates class at Mind and Body at 3:30. We'll be indulgent and walk over. Maybe we'll see some cute blooming flowers on the way over!

The recorder quartet was as I expected last night - all too relaxing, although the tousled blond guy was pretty hot. shadowdaddy said the four of them looked like a new wave band, and I suggested they could have been the Tubes (ha ha). Afterwards we went to 611 Supreme for crepes with dagmar_b, which was pleasant. All in all, I think the highlight of the evening wasn't even the three games I won on one round of Space Mission at Funland: it was the walk to and from, on a mild, rain-free night.

Butt Rock Makes Modern Dance Rule

The Butt Rock dance fest at Velocity was awesome. The audience was rowdy (it was standing room only), many of them tricked out in their finest hair metal gear. They cheered, lit lighters between sets, and clapped along to most of the songs. The dances tended to be very 80's referential, with nods to "Love is a Battlefield" and other early MTV faves. Most of the show was NOT serious, which was fine by me: I got a kick out of watching dancers use each other as air guitars, and the mimed "being carried by the crowd" scenes were just inspired. "Dust in the Wind," "Shout at the Devil," and a Queen medley were some of the finer musical moments of the night. I just loved it! It made me jones for karaoke at the Sea Wolf, but I have all of this crap I wanted to cook before I went to bed PLUS I was hoping to get into work early, so I bagged on going out and was responsible instead. I ask you, how is THAT the hard rock lifestyle? I hope they do this again!
