How absolutely silly
It sure is chilly
So… I have to say, for as silly as I am, I am not feeling this prompt today. Maybe because the last few days have been so somber as far as what is going on in the country and also with my family and of course with myself, (it’s always all about me!).
My online schooling is getting more involved and that makes sense because it is a seven-week progressive course. I had mid terms two weeks ago and finals are next week and I am doing fairly well, but I never like to take things for granted.
In other news, I am still sober despite going to a Koffin Kats show at The Balcony in the Trocadero in the China Town section of Philadelphia this past Sunday. The balcony is the upstairs part of the Troc and of course, there is a bar! I don’t mind the element when I don’t have to sit at the bar. I think one of the most fascinating things about being sober is when I do wind up near people drinking alcohol, watching the way they change – it is astounding.
The Koffin Kats have been around for over twenty years and still play intimate venues and I have to say… WOW! What an amazing show. I have been to many concerts and shows in my life and the Koffin Kats one is definitely in my top five. It was more like an experience! The energy in the room was off the charts as people danced and sang and the lead singer of the group was hopping all over the place. He was the bass player, but not a bass guitar – an actual stand up bass (I call it a Tom & Jerry bass).
Is you is or is you ain’t my baby?
The bass player was lifting it up over his head, spinning it around and jumping on the side of it… it was one of the most entertaining live music shows I have been to in my lifetime.
I grew up in Philly, so when I go down there these days, it still feels like home to me… for a little while. I don’t get down there too much anymore, and that is probably a good thing. Philly was my home for all kinds of things and while it’s good to go home once in a while, it’s also just as good to leave.
How far do you live from where you grew up?
