Hey y’all. Here we are on yet another Monday morning wondering where the hell Sunday went. What kind of a weekend did we have? Good? Bad? Bitch cold?
Following the film, I walked over to Veni Vidi Vici, where I ran into the fine folks known as Love The Captive, who convinced me to jog over to Starline to catch Shiver Fox. Being an old woman, I only managed to stay awake for three Shiver Fox songs, so I’ll reserve judgment on the new band. I will say, however, that I really rather liked opening act Poor Man’s Poison.
SATURDAY: Spent the morning watching “Sell This House.” I’ve never sold a house, but I find the show inexplicably entertaining. Later, I met a friend for lunch at a very mediocre taco place, then spent the afternoon making and eventually eating Swedish meatballs. After dinner, I played a few rounds of a long-lost Parker Brothers game called Probe (calm down — it’s merely a word game, a combination of “Wheel of Fortune” and Go Fish).
SUNDAY: Got out of town by taking a day trip to Santa Cruz and the ever-popular Mystery Spot. As far as tourist traps go, this one is pretty good — there’s something creepy about being in an old(ish) cabin in the woods. However, if you experience just the slightest bit of vertigo, you will probably, as I did, feel a strong need to pass the hell out. Still worth it, though, as admission is $5 and you get one of those ubiquitous yellow bumper stickers at the end of the tour.
