Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

Rock Stars, Dixie Chicks & the Seahawks

Friday night, Steve and I went to the Christoph Gallery down in Georgetown for a friend's 40th birthday party. Adam+Kris came up from Portland to play this party (that's how we know this friend, thru them) and they told Steve to bring his bass and me to bring my voice. They asked us to play a couple songs, and we did Doom & Gloom and D'Jever. Then Adam asked us to do one more, so I asked Kris to come up and sing harmony on Angel From Montgomery.

Yeah. We're rock stars.

Saturday we slept until 12:30pm and no, I'm not proud of it. We lounged for a bit, then I got gussied up and headed down to my friend's place. We gals went to the Dixie Chicks concert at the Tacoma Dome. Bob Schneider opened for them and that was the best part of the show. He only played five songs, but I still got to oogle Jeff. I'm pretty sure he didn't recognize me. It's probably best.

Anywho, the Chicks played for about 3 hours and it was just dull. They're wonderful musicians and Natalie's voice really holds up live and in such a big stadium, but there was hardly any banter or personality. It was just one song after another. The crowd watching alone was more entertaining. Bunch o'weirdos.

We attempted to go out dancing afterwards, but we were all really tired, so we just went back to my friend's place then I came home. I slept in again this morning, then cleaned a little and watched the Seahawks game.

We beat the Rams. Again. We're still #1.

Then Kim-n-Tim came over for dinner. Moroccan stew. It was a nice, quiet evening at home.

And there goes the weekend. Man.

And have I mentioned the rain? For those of you who have no TV or newspapers, it's been pouring here for weeks. Oh, we've had maybe three days with no rain in the past month, but for the most part, we're drowning here. It just. keeps. coming. Ug. Believe it or not, this is not normal. Yes, it "rains" here, but it's normally just an annoying mist. This is Texas rain. Holy crap.

Now you're all caught up.

Just so I don't seem like a total dork, I don't usually wear my guitar up that high. I was using Kris' guitar and didn't adjust the strap.

Yes, I'm more worried about the height of the guitar than the orange pants.

Steve - Being the non-musician that I am, I didn't even notice how high your guitar was (or the orange pants) but of course, I had to go back and look! And I'm sure you're not a dork!
Congrats on your Seahawks - we will NOT discuss the Redskins. Except one thing - QB change next week - woo-hoo - it's just about 3-4 weeks too late. That's all I'm saying.
And if you're sick of the rain - you could always move East!! ;>)
