I love street fairs! The music, the vendors, the people and most of all, the perfect excuse for a funnel cake! This weekend is the Normal Heights Adams Avenue Music Festival. I went yesterday and heard some great bands. I highly recommend Sara Pettite, whom you can find on iTunes. The only problem is that she sounds WAY better live. Still, I bought “Coming Home” and “Little House” and both are excellent. I also had some delicious teriyaki meat bowl and yes, a funnel cake STRAIGHT out of the fryer.
Friday, I had drinks at the Hotel Del. It’s such a sweet place and had some great music but the scene was a little skeevy. There was a business party that let out and people were in the bar looking for only one thing. Well, one thing and drinks but the drinks seemed easier to procure since most people were bombed out of their minds. I was at a small table with a group so we were insulated from it with the exception of the people who have voice immodulation disorder. But it was fine- I definitely wasn’t expecting a bar to be as quiet as a library. I had a great time and it was a beautiful night.
Today is catch up on work day, which always guarantees a procrastinating blog entry or two. I’m also going to check out St. Brigid’s church in PB. I met a few people who go there at Ken’s wedding and it seems to have a really active, fun young adult scene. I’ve always thought it would be pretty cool to be part of an active Church community. I see some patients from time to time who really seem to draw strength and great friendships from their spiritual life. Also, my life can be so insular and work-focused, it’s nice to have my attention turned to something ever-so-slightly larger than myself. So that’s at 5:30 so I can get two chapter’s of Bailey’s (ENT textbook) done, right? I think so as long as I say, “Silence bed! No nap for you!”
