I'd like to welcome my readers from Rhymes With Drowning over to this new chronicle. It's really just a continuation in terms of keeping track of what's happening in my life, but the whole concept is just a bit different. It's focused on what's happening in my new life, as opposed to what was keeping me anchored to the old one.
Yesterday we packed into the Sportage and headed north to Bellingham. We gathered at my sister's home and had a nice visit (including a game of croquet - how very Edwardian garden party of us). Caleb showed up and hung out with the family. It was good to see him, and it'll be good to have him back in Seattle at the end of this month.
(with mom - and my new birthday shirt)
Kayleigh stayed in Bellingham overnight and Tyler went back to Gavin's house for some hobby time, and so I found myself sans children for the evening. Called Raechelle (who was already shoe shopping in Westwood), and took her out to dinner at the Celtic Swell. The drizzly day had turned bright and clear so we wandered along the waterfront and watched the sunset. Well, we watched part of it. She'd brought Hedwig and the Angry Inch and was excited to show it to me.
Loved it. Loved it in almost the same way I love The Wall. Great music, more than a little disturbing, and brilliantly shot and edited - with gritty little animation sequences that reminded me of the stuff we were watching and doing at Mission College.
And of course I couldn't have wished for a better viewing partner. She was geeking out and pointing out things and telling me little behind-the-scenes nuggets. I think I'm dating a closet film geek, and it's kinda hot.
Anyway, that's the first post in Life 2.0. Pedestrian? Maybe. But headed in the right direction.
