Song of the Day- The Last Time- Taylor Swift ft. Gary Lightbody
So, tonight I’m taking my daughter to her very first real concert. She is beyond excited to see Taylor Swift. I am sad the chances of hearing this song performed with a very special guest are slim to none.
Song of the Day- Over the Hills and Far Away- Led Zeppelin
Today is my husband’s birthday, and this is his favorite song. So there. Incidentally, we realized last night that we’ve now celebrated 15 of his birthdays together. Here’s to many, many more, @elzeedude .
Is it absolutely insane to spend $130 on one tray of 20 large “gourmet” cupcakes and one tray of 48 mini-cupcakes? Because common sense tells me maybe it is. Especially since I can likely get just as much cakeish product (probably much more) for a lot less. But… BUT. It’s for my husband’s 40th birthday party. Does that make it less insane? Also, they are freaking delicious cupcakes. Thoughts?
The ACL line-up is out!
Acts I’m most excited to see:
Depeche Mode, The Cure, Phoenix, The National, Vampire Weekend, Muse, Passion Pit, Local Natives, The Joy Formidable, Noah and the Whale, Neko Case, Grouplove, Haim, Little Green Cars…
Austinites are posting clues to the 2013 Lineup, Get Clued In Now!
They’re announcing the 2013 Austin City Limits Festival Line-up Monday at Midnight, but they’ve started dropping names of bands appearing. This is the best idea… they’ve put band names and the hashtag #ACLFEST on cups, napkins, etc. at local business and asked people who find them to post them. So far, a pretty good line-up has been uncovered:
Neko Case (!)
The Joy Formidable
Shovels and Rope
Portugal. The Man
The Smith Westerns
…. and Muse have reportedly let slip that they’re a headliner, so there’s that.
Line-up looks to be awesome… now all I have to do is decide which weekend I want to go!
I’ve got the Today Show on while I drink my coffee and scroll through my dash. A commercial ended and I suddenly heard the epic climax of “Open Your Eyes”. My head snapped up, looking for the source. Alas, it was only the Today show returning with coverage of the Bush Presidential Library. :/
Well, I’ve been on and off (mostly off) tumblr these last few weeks, and when I am on, it’s just a quick scroll through my dash. My husband was laid off and has been home and COMPLETELY HOGGING the computer while looking for another job or some shit like that. ;) We are trying not to get too stressed about it. He’s highly intelligent and chock-full of skills, so we’re hoping he’ll find something worthy of his substantial abilities sooner rather than later. But in the meantime, yes, he’s on the computer basically all day, and I have an aversion to posting to tumblr from my phone, so, I’ll probably be mostly quiet for the next few weeks.
I’ll post when I can (like now), but in the meantime, send us some “find-an-awesome-job-soon” positive vibes, would ya? x
