cold, quiet and five flickr favorites

Hello. It is very, very cold in Pittsburgh. So cold that walking three blocks is enough to make my face numb. At least Mother Nature is gracious enough to give us sunshine during this bitter cold. I can't imagine what it must be like to live in a place that is this cold for longer than a few weeks. I don't think I could take it. I prefer warm weather.

I am feeling quiet today, though as I write, I can feel a ramble coming on. The weekend was very social for us, and while it was fun, it took a bit out of me. I tend to get somewhat stressed out in crowded settings. Saturday night we attended the Rickety New Wave Cabaret at the Pub. It was a blast. Will dressed as a metal dude (hence, the wig) since he was never into new wave back in the day. I wish I had gotten a picture of the two of us, but alas, I did not. All I can say is thank goodness for leg warmers!! I wore a mini-skirt w/ fishnet stockings and considering it was subzero temperatures outside, there's no way I would have done it without the leg warmers! I am not usually one for dressing in costumes, but I had fun getting dressed up for this event. Of course dressing new wave these days isn't much of a stretch - have you been in an H&M lately?! I ran around with my camera most of the night, trying to make sure I got a decent photo of each of the bands. There is a group on Flickr for all the photos, so if you were there and took photos, please add them! I posted some this morning and have many more to come. I think my favorite from the night is actually the first photo I took.

Not only do D. and B. look awesome, but I also love all the drumheads on the ceiling. I thought the whole night went smoothly...a big hats off to BamBam for organizing the event! Thanks for always having such splendid birthday celebrations, my dear.

See, I am rambling. On Sunday, we watched the Super Bowl with friends. I hope that even if you are not a football fan that you caught the halftime performance by Prince. It was absolutely amazing! It has to be the best half-time show the NFL has ever had (especially considering the fact that they usually suck), I mean, it was that fabulous. (Lots of people agree!) It was pouring rain, but Prince gave a flawless performance. It was all about the music, not the bells and whistles. He ROCKED. It looks like you can probably check it out on You Tube if you missed it.

I'm going to end this post with five of my latest favorites from Flickr. Perhaps I will make this a regular Tuesday thing! Stay warm friends.
