Solid proof of busyness.

Friday, August 01, 2008

Boy, I do hate those weeks when its suddenly Friday and I realize I haven't checked in with y'all on the blog. It's been a crazy-busy couple of days. Let's recap!

+ I got a new haircut! Photos are forthcoming, but I loooooove Chris at new U Street salon Parlour. We are moving solidly in a Katie Holmesian direction. Two thumbs up!

+ Like a good little groupie, I've been following my Favorite Band Ever, the Old 97s, through the mid-Atlantic region this week. First up was Tuesday at the 9:30 Club, with super-cute opening band The Spring Standards, which was sold out and seriously crowded but a rocking good show. (We were sliiiightly late after being sidetracked by Drag Queen Bingo at nearby Nellie's, which I totally want to go back for next week. Takers?) Last night we caught the band at the Bottle & Cork in Dewey, which was just fantastic because you could basically walk right up to the stage and rock with Rhett. (Who I thought might pass out, he was rocking so hard.) Plus, I haven't heard "Wish the Worst" in concert in for-ev-er (although my request for "Singular Girl" was completely dismissed by Ken). Still. Good times, good times.

+ Oh, and then there was the Ice Cream Social! I ended up inviting my neighbors up to the roofdeck to polish off all that Edy's, and it was waaaay fun.

+ Plus! Project Runway! What did you think? Here's my recap.

+ Oh and finally! I've got the cover story in the style section of the Washington Post Express today (unfortunately, no pics online). I haven't seen it myself yet, 'cause I'm still at the beach. But can you guess which thrifted ensemble is mine?

+ Excuse me, I have to go have Thrasher's now.

Yay to the Old 97s, I just saw them in June at First Ave in Minneapolis (for you non-Minneapolines, that is the legendary venue where Purple Rain was filmed) and the were A.W.E.S.O.M.E!!!

Miss Spinach! Have you seen the "bauble ballet flats" from Old Navy? They remind me of your own shoe creation from a few entries back, only a bit less cool. Still cute, though.

I love ice cream socials. They are the perfect summer gathering.

Congrats on your cover story. How exciting!!

I am so jealous that you are in my hometown right now and I am not. I haven't been to the beach AT ALL this summer.

I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU FOUND DVF AT GEORGIA AVE!!! I will have to eat my words about it being less-than-stellar.

Ohh! Very excited to see pictures of your cut at Parlour. Do you get highlights? If so, I'd love to hear if you think their price is worth it.


I opened your blog, the name called to me. As I love both things, spinach and fashion. I'm crazy for ice cream too. Especially Chocolate Chunk Brownie. ^_^ Nice page.

LOVE Nellie's - esp. since it is just a few blocks from my house. Basically, the closest place to get a beer that does not scare the wits out of me. If you need bingo friends, count me in, but what I *really* wanted to try is their trivia night. I was there one night watching the Red Sox while the trivia thing was going on, and let me tell you, it sounded like a raucous! good time (we were upstairs).
