supporting the arts through attendance & money a nice Friday night

settling in

I was so sad because I didn’t think I’d gotten any response to my last post, but then I realized I hadn’t updated my email address on my account! Thanks for commenting, Mom, Mia, and Sandy! Last week, on Tuesday night, I went to Cafe Cabaret for the open poetry reading. It was fine. I’d…

Maundy Thursday

I don’t know how in my 43 years, I’ve never heard this term, ‘maundy.’ Or realized that it’s the day of the Last Supper. I’m not too religious as you may have guessed. Today, two great men died. One I knew, the other I knew of. The latter first: Doug Sax. He owned a business…

summer is here

I don’t know why people get so surprised. Summertime heat always hits San Diego in August & September. It’s hot, humid, and heavy. Thunderclouds billow and threaten but never come through. I am beyond excited because tomorrow my sister comes to visit. Last year at this time, I went to visit her in Salt Lake…

AmericanaramA and other events

Hello! Man, you get out of the routine, and it’s hard to get back in! I missed writing when I went up to visit Mom and Dad the weekend of July 19-21, and then it just didn’t happen! Here are some things I did: – On July 26, I went to a poetry slam at…

today I wore a dress

It may not seem like a big deal, but for me it kind of is. I almost changed my mind because this morning, looking at reflections of myself, I kind of felt like a whale. But when I got back from getting coffee, Han said I looked nice and that was enough to make me…

first week of 2013

It’s not been without excitement. On Dec 31, Han’s brother arrived with his band from Seattle to record with Han. They are 19, 20, and almost 21 so I got them some beer so they could have some new year’s cheer while Han & I went to his gig. (They crashed out early having had…

2012 wrap-up

Well, I must say my blogging this year was pretty atrocious. Except for my valiant effort in November (28 out of 30 days), the rest of my posts for the year add up to just 17. Pathetic. So I’ll try to recap my year here, because there was stuff I did, I just didn’t document…

2011 redux

A quick summary of what I did or what happened in 2011: January: poetry feature at the Space Bar in La Mesa Mike Spurgat’s farewell concert (and the basic end of Rock Band) February: Han & I open up for Whirlwind Company (Mindy Nettifee, Jon Sands, Brian Ellis, and Mighty Mike McGee) purchase of our…

Christmas Eve eve

What a month it’s been! Good thing I had that lazy day to prepare for it! December 5-7, I was in Palm Springs for a work conference. The hotel was really nice, but I basically hung in my room and worked (TA stuff) when I didn’t have work functions to attend. I enjoy this conference….

countdown over

I guess it wasn’t much of a countdown since I missed some days in there. Sorry about that. But I’m not one to leave my readers (all 5-10 of you!) hanging. So here is the rest of my 40 x 40 list. 9. Thrown a surprise party (and pulled it off) – It was for…
