Busy busy busy!!

Well, they finished the floors last night at about 8:00pm. Those two dudes worked their arses off for 3 days solid, and the result is pretty freakin' fantastic, if I do say so myself. I promise before and after pics once we get the house put back together, which may take a couple of days. There is a fine powdery dust on every single surface that we're having to deal with first before we move the furniture back in. And there are Swiffers that need to be purchased. And area rugs. But it's coming together.

Tonight, I'm dragging The Geej with me to a little soiree at my boss's house. Should be fun. There will be a couple of babies there I can snorgle along with my boss's sweet Basset hound. And there will be wine and snacks, so I'm gonna be happy.

Tomorrow night, BH and I are going to see the wonderful Ray LaMontagne in concert. It's a double bill with Levon Helm, who I like. But I LOVE Mr. LaMontagne. That raspy voice. Those lyrics. I mean LOOK at this guy: 
Le sigh.
Then on Saturday night, we're going to see Tim and Eric at The Paramount. If you're not familiar with Tim and Eric, there's really no way I can describe them to you other than to say they're two insane dudes who have one of the weirdest comedy shows I have ever seen in my life: The Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! They're touring with a live show right now, and I can't even imagine how bizarre it's going to be. Plus, they've got a "band" called...wait for it...Pusswhip Gangbang that will be performing during the show as well. Should be totally strange.

Then on Sunday afternoon, The Geej and I will be attending Circus Cats. Yes, you read that right: Circus Cats. That is one reason having kiddos is fun--you have an excuse to go see stuff like freakin' CIRCUS CATS and not feel even one bit weird about it. (I'm not sure what it says about me, but I had three different people email me to let me know that the Circus Cats would be performing in Austin this weekend. Oh wait, I know what it says! It says I'M A DORK!!) I actually have a friend who has gone to see these felines do their thang at a Chicago show (they actually hail from the Windy City), and said it's pretty hilarious. They're touring right now--they've got some Austin and San Antonio shows--and rumor has it that the demands in their contract rider are pretty outrageous:
  • Unlimited tuna.
  • Italian spring water served in crystal goblets. NO BOWLS!!
  • Eastern and Western facing windows in the dressing room for maximum sunbeam action.
  • A man servant whose only jobs are to operate a laser pointer (for chasing) and to "constantly refresh immediately upon soiling".
You get the idea. Show business cats are so uppity.
