Oh my, Sunset Rubdown on Tuesday!

I cannot wait! I feel like an antsy schoolgirl. I can say with utmost confidence that this is my favorite band. My heart fills up everytime I think of them.

I am also relishing in the fact that the majority of the world still does not know of them...which is a terribly selfish thing to do. Don't get me wrong, I do wish them the greatest success. But for now I have the cozy feeling that it's my little secret for the time being, the wonderful stretch prior to them becoming famously popular and forcing me to suffer through another crowded show at the Crystal.

But for now I can snuggle close to the stage and drink in their amazing sound and trick myself into believing that it's all for me.

If you don't have their new album, Random Spirit Lover, buy it now. If you have absolutely no idea who I am talking about, start with their first recordings.

Tuesday! Hawthorne Theatere. My heart might implode.

Family Harris

When staying in Chicago, be sure to pay a visit to the Harris family. These folks do family well. It was such a great treat to watch this unit in action.

You two are fantastic parents. I really can't imagine anything more wonderful.

Watching one of my oldest friends with a child is confusing for me at times. I feel perpetually torn between wanting children and fearing motherhood. And wanting motherhood, then fearing children. I am ready one day, and a complete mess the next. It's very confusing.

Max is an absolute delight. He is one of the most beautiful people I have ever let eyes on. Making him smile is truly fulfilling. And scary.
