36 hundred ounces of broccoli! – part 2

so, chatting with MickeyMatt today, and he shared that Jo-Anne had a mid slumber declaration regarding the above mentioned ingredient. She was unable to recall the recipe once she awoke.

So, I type this while listening to “‘Merikash Express” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Boo and I have discussed if Bieber will ever be able to match the harmonies. I say no way.

woke up this morning and felt quite a lot like crap. So I went back to sleep. Sorry Viv & Rachel – I’ll make ya pancakes soon, I promise!
I felt blech due to how awesome it was to catch the triumphant return of the Future Kings of Nowhere last night at Motorco here in Durhamtown!! woot woot!!

Ask yourself this – what would a mosh pit/crowd surfing scene look like in hipster dive? Oh yeah … it was unbelievably … er, … something!!

Short & sweet – cancer fought Shayne and Shayne won. Fuck yeah.
Longer more fucking heartbreaking version can be found over this way.
the show was awesome, and if YouTube gets me hooked up I’ll have some of my patented ‘scott wallace live concert cam’ footage to link to.

It was such an overwhelming roller coaster of emotions: the joy of his successful battle, his return to being a damn fine musician and artist, the Durham scene’s community showing the love and support, and the crowd’s ability to join in all of it. Really glad I sucked it up and headed out.

sucked it up from what you ask? well, you see… Boo & I had fun and adventures yesterday (Saturday) morn!
I got up decent hour, and made some tasty cakes –

and as I discussed the options to our Saturday morning argument of “why aren’t we doing something already?” I mentioned I have been wanting to go to a local junkyard to look for some bits and pieces for Ramona. Boo shocked the crap out of me by saying “that sounds cool – let’s go” (cue flashback to ‘hey, wanna go to Vegas tonight? circa 2000) – hell yes let’s go!
We ended up at the junkyard, where I found no parts for Ramona what so ever, and Boo pondering cool art materials and stubbing her toe 🙁

Afterwards, since adventures can’t live on sun stroke alone, we headed to get some nibbles in the new awesome “NoCo” area of Durhamtown. Which would have given us a wide choice of places to nibble at. I was shooting for Kings Sandwich Shop. Sadly, it turns out, lots of Durham was out at the area of happening!!

so we rolled through and to our back up plan – Nosh!

One thing I love about durham, and has happened a few times this weekend, is the serdipitous ‘hey – Iknow them!’ – so when we were driving behind Raymond & Christopher – happy, and slightly odd – but yay! Making it to Nosh, we put our order in and then – hey – Viv and cartel – how are you guys!! yay!

Lunch was tasty, and boo wanted to pick up some spray paint for some flower pots she wanted to colorify. Off we drove, in the general direction of ‘that way’ – it was a lovely day for a drive. We ended up not at the Goodwill Thrift store, on the way to Loewes, but actually at a store call Ganny’s Panties.
Oh such a store of special stuff and junk and cool things all over the place. Boo’s finest purchase – a stunning red and black purse. My best catch? Well, the coleman stove makes me think of glamping, but really – this –

Got home, unloaded the goods –

and started to feel not the best. Some inner ear dizzyness – kinda sucked. But Boo did good for me – nibbled a tasty tasty pizza, some chips, and an episode of Top Gear on Netflix. Or perhaps it was the hour nap I took – all in all, felt good enough to make it to the show.

Actually, our great weekend started out I guess Thursday night’sh – Boo and I made it to the Pinhook for a show by “girls in trouble” – Boo had see them when last they were in town and is kinda fond of them. So, I moaned and groaned about going out to a show I wasn’t already all crazy about, and once again Durhamtown delivers – wow. Totally awesome group out of NYC with an Alicia as the lead singer, who plays the violin. Nice indie melody girls rockin’ kinda group (we are horrible at the whole name the genre in thirteen words or less game)

Before we hit the show, though, it was the first of a few ‘hey – we know YOU!’ moments – we thought we’d check out the Beer Garden on Geer St. in ‘NoCo’, and lo and behold we ran into Brent there. had a tasty (if slowly delivered) meal, and jetted to the pinhook and loved the show.

Friday we noshed with Morgan @ Hong Kong Cafe post chatting with Carrie & Nate, then sat morn, and today.

tired I tell you!
just like blue –
