Sorry for the utter lack of post-age but I'm feeling a little insanely busy. Like, oh my gosh Monday night was crazy. From work, I went straight to the Y to run the dance recital of my baby girls. Then it was off to my new writer's group for a little pasta and self-deprication. Next I sped over to my new favorite elliptical at my new favorite gym. After that, I dropped by the house I am sitting to check in on things. Then I sped over to Kinko's to run updated flyers for an upcoming Wyld Stallions Records event, all before I finally made it home to bake cookies for my designer as a thank you, both for fixing the WSR flyer, and for liking cookies more than cash.
By the time I stumbled into the Monkey with the updated flyers, clad in dance pants, Target-brand Uggs, a hoodie and an old jean jacket I thought, "This is it. This is the night my mother is going to make good on her long-time fantasy of signing me up for TLC's 'What Not to Wear'."
But luckily Stacy and Clinton were not waiting at the bar complete with cosmopolitans, and I was able to make it back to my house-sitting abode in time to FINALLY load Mardi Gras pictures from my camera to my computer... the delayed point of this entire post.
Did you all Mardi hardy?
As Dan just told you, he and I (and the lovely Joanna) sure did. I'd say our float was the most glitter to ever hit the marketplace, but let's face it. This is Burlington. There's always some fabulously-clad LeMay girl waiting just around the corner...
I won't bore you by reiterating the awesomeness that Dan just relayed, but I will show you pictures! The Cave Bees totally held their shit on the moving float. The moving float made all the more hazardous by screaming Seven Days-ers. And since Dan, Joanna and I somehow ended up positioned IN the band, I was able to get some pretty up close and personal shots:
And now you know what it feels like to be on a float with a band.
Of course, being on a Seven Days float with a band also includes a little bit of this:
And we can all always use more of that.
Anyway, I checked out the Cave Bees' MySpace and it looks like their next show is not for another month, but I figured I would give it a quick plug anyway. March 28 at Metronome, mark your calendars now.
If they rock half as hard as they did at the circus, it's sure to be a good time.
