On Saturday we went out for drinks and dinner and more drinks with Stef and Brad and my good friend Jeff. Between drink courses, Val and I stopped at Schoolkids Records and bought some CDs. I purchased:

Salt 'n' Pepa : Very Necessary
Fine Young Cannibals : The Finest
Maritime : Glass Floor

I am sure you all can identify the first two artists, but Maritime features members of The Promise Ring as well as The Dismemberment Plan, and it's pretty good. Bear in mind, the first two CDs were $2.99 each, and the Maritime CD I bought because I liked the cover design, despite it's $3.99 price tag. Keeps me hip. Or something.

Also on a musical note, I've been listening to a lot of Robyn Hitchcock, with and without the Egyptians. I've seen him live several times, and he did an album last year with Yep Rock here in NC. If you can get through the nasal voice and the absurd lyrics, you might just find something you like.

On the optics front, I have joined a Konica users yahoo group, hoping to pick up tips and tricks from people, but mostly just wishing to share my love of great old cameras. I also belong to yahoo groups for café racers and IAR.

Hmmm. Doesn't look like I ever blogged this treat. Back in February of ought 3, I was at the local drugstore and the toy isle had this to offer:

In case you can't read all the GREAT things you can do, here's the list:


I'm not sure "REAL WOOD!" qualifies as a craft activity, but I bet it sells sticks!

I do love a good blast from the past.
