Too Gone for Too Long

i wanted to remark about how i haven't posted in a while and that immediately came to my head. they are lyrics from one of my favorite songs by randy travis. i love randy travis. surprised? i believe it stems from the five-year-old version of me prancing around on our living room furniture singing along to his album always & forever (thank you miles and miles of family video tape). i know every song by heart and i love it. i have my parents' strange, eclectic taste in music to thank. when you have lps of randy travis, weird al yankovic, queen, ladysmith balck mambazo, the beach boys and so many more at your finger tips you start to realize how wonderful different genres of music are.

we are about to leave for a st. patty's day celebration that will include a visit to a townie bar where angie's pop's band Johnny Alibi and the Excuse will play some classic tunes. yes, that is their name and yes, it is very hilarious. i love bar bands almost as much as i love karaoke bars. they are a quality act and it should be tons of fun with all the st. patrick's day hooligans about. i never realized how excited people get around here for st. patty's, we love our irish ancestry and we love to wear lots of green (my roommate is currently waiting for some green eyeshadow to compliment her green earrings, green shirt and green headband). i'm not sure if i am allowed to wear my "i'm hungary for turkey" shirt, but it's green and will have to do. i'm sure the bar goers won't mind, i mean, today is really just another reason to enjoy one of wisconsin's favorite foods. beer.
