Weekend recap

Oh Monday is here again. Yet another sunny day but fortunately today isn't 50 degrees. I'll be able to ride without a jacket.

First thing's first, Caity, here's your painting as of today.



Friday night I went out for a drink with Jenny and some of her friends. It was at... crap I can't remember what D bar? I think it was D Bar on Dorchester ave in Dorchester. Turns out Fridays are gay nights and they were having some American Idol style contest where people signed up for $10 and sang as much or as little of a song of their choice a cappella.

After going back and forth with the notion for a while I decided what the hell, I'll sing.

When it was decided that I was going to sing I realized that I don't remember lyrics for the life of me unless I'm listening along to a song.

I had to go out to Jenny's car and scan her ipod for a song to do. I ended up choosing "To Be With You" by Mr. Big.



I stood there on the tiny stage in the corner of the bar scanning my brain for the lyrics and finally went into a shaky rendition of the song all while feeling the gaze of 100 gays.

I've played in bands for ten years. I've played the Hatch Shell on the Charles River...



I've played the Hampton Casino Ballroom in front of a near sellout crowd...

...but I've never been more nervous onstage than the time I sang Mr. Big for the gay dudes.

I have no idea what the hell was wrong with me. At least I got a free martini out of it. Even though that tasted like seawater.

Saturday was sweet. Went to the gym. Printed some prints. Rode a little bit. BBQ'd all night with friends.

Sunday was mother's day as we all know and since Skip and I both have out of state mom syndrome we decided to take our motorcycles out for a good ride while everyone else was at brunch with thier moms.

After slacking last week I'm going to get down to business with the remaining commissions I have left.

Enjoy the weather.

Looks great! My wall is SO excited... seriously, it told me to tell you.

Good song choice! I get nervous about my wardrobe around the gays...

Oh, Hampton Beach Casino. I miss that place. Summers just aren't the same anymore.
