Four Months in the Making

So here we go again!

I am officially the worst blogger on the interweb.

So what have I done these past months? Unfortunately, not a whole lot.

I do however have some exciting things in the next few months. And I hope to post a little bit about them too!

So without further ado a quick update on the past and then one for the future.


Christmas happened. And it was wonderful. I couldn't go home this year (for the first time ever) thanks to the fact that I work a retail job. But it was still really great. My house pulled together, got a real tree, hung stockings on the banister, and Steve cooked a delicious traditional meal with all the fixings. Then in early January I was able to make the trek home with my sister and have round two with the family. Exciting gifts include but are not limited to a Snuggie! a barbecue(still at the rents :( .) a unicorn, and a light up wand. Yes I am still a child, that loves food from the grill.

And yes, house. Maggie and I moved in with Steve(her boyfriend) and things here are going well.

I caught a few more shows. Most notably Steve Aoki. The lineup was stupid and although I will likely never return to that bar the show itself was great. Last weekend I saw Woodshed Orchestra which is a really fun group to see if you get the chance.

I wish I could say more than that has happened the past few months but aside from my day to day boredom of work there hasn't been a whole lot.


Well I am still working the same job and thankfully things are starting to get busier again after the post-christmas lull.

For the first time I watched a season of the Bachelor.

And now for the good stuff. For those who don't know or hadn't realized, live music is pretty much all I care about other than eating, sleeping, and paying my bills. I don't particularly care for the last of those but alas it must be dealt with. I also have some time for televised sporting events and Glee.

This summer I will be taking a trip. No not the Caribbean, not Europe, not Australia or anywhere overly exotic. I am headed to Tennessee. Manchester, TN host of the 10th anniversary Bonnaroo festival! I can't begin to describe my elation in words. I will get to see some great acts for the second time but many for the first. A quick rundown of what I am most excited for has to include Florence & The Machine, Robert Plant, Ray LaMontagne and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. There are too many for me to list here but you can check out the full lineup if you are interested.

I will also be taking a trip back to Ottawa come April for both Easter and my father's 60th birthday bash. If anyone has gift ideas for a cynical old guy leave them in the comments.

In May my parents are coming to visit here. I have some family coming up from the States as well. They have never seen the Falls! You really do take certain natural world wonders for granted when they are just a short drive away.

Well I think that is all for now. I hope you are well.
