“five words that describe my life right now:”                   (photo: andrea)

1. Tour
2. Van
3. Music
4. People
5. Draining
On this last tour I hit the point where all I wanted to do was be home. I still haven’t recovered and I have to leave again.





it’s Wednesday!


Congratulations to this little indie film at the Oscars last night.  Here’s the video for it’s winning song, “Falling Slowly.”

what’s one thing you’re craving right now?

seriously, that’s an easy question.
i’m so “over” winter and snow and ice and freezing rain. the snow is fine but when it freezes and melts into gray slush…no thanks.
we leave for vacation in a month and 3 days. it sounds too good to be true.

joy~a blue cheese sirloin with baked potato…..YUM!

kendra~the next episode of LOST! Im not kidding, i love the new season!

andrea~wow, where do I begin.

the one thing I am craving right now (if I have to narrow it to just one) is: travel. I’d give anything to do just a little bit of traveling right now. I think it would do wonders for me.

i just received word that my childhood friend, whom I grew up with, died this past week. she was just 37 years old, and left behind a 13 year old daughter. we used to listen to the Carpenters together during the summer while her mom and dad were at work. she and her sister werent allowed to have friends over, but i would sneak in thru the basement window to play.  this one is for you Tricia.

I did have big plans to post friday fives today, really i did.  But it seems the subject matter this week threw the ladies for a loop.  so instead here’s a little ditty to get you thru the weekend….

yael naim, “new soul” (the song has been featured on the Mac Air commercial)

…friday fives

This is difficult for me to say. I mean TOUGH for me to confess. There are two other concerts that i left off of my big friday fives post, for good reason. What can I say? I was a 16 year old whose uncle was trying to make the move to California a little better for me. He got me tickets to the hottest show playing at the Universal Amphitheatre. At least that’s my excuse for my first time seeing them live. The second show was all me. I take full responsibility for begging my mom, buying the tickets, driving myself and a friend to the show, and pretending to be too cool to scream at the top of my lungs for my favorite guy, Donny.

That’s right, NKOTB, (otherwise known as New Kids On the Block) are reportedly planning a reunion tour this summer sans a member or two. Several different sites are reporting that the group will be announcing their plans in the next week or so, but apparently someone forgot to tell Danny Wood, one of the founding five. On Jan. 28th he reported on his blog that there are “no plans whatsoever to reunite.” And with Donny Wahlberg a respectable supporting actor these days, Im guessing that leaves the touring to Joey, Jordan, and Jon….
