||Phish - New York, NY 12/30/1997|
Before the meat of this post, I just have to comment on this music pick. You could start with the bust-out "Sneakin' Sally" opener. You could ooh and aah over the Harpua. Hell, you've got a grade A gem in just the four-song encore: Carini>Black-Eyed Katy>Sneakin' Sally reprise>Frankenstein. But dear goddess, the AC/DC Bag that opens the second set of this show is so fucking hot. The jam is so good, it literally re-wires your synapses while listening. It's got the funk for your booty, and the headiness to cause visions - without the bowl of green! For me, this one jam is Phish at THE peak - I just haven't heard anything better... well, that second set 2001>Mike's>Weekapaug>Character Zero at the Gorge in 1998... but I digress.
Anyways, Eamon's got another tooth coming in, this one on top (so he's got one on the bottom and one on top poking through). Funny how his teeth choose the weekend to decide to make their appearances. Luckily, the homeopathic tablets are helping to ease his discomfort. Unfortunately, that means waking twice a night to dose him up. Poor guy.
The little guy has also learned how to get around. Notice I do not say crawling - he skootches backwards on his stomach, but he's definitely on the move. It's pretty funny to watch. He's also able to support himself on his hands and knees, and he can get up on them by himself. Every day brings us closer to full on crawling.
I built a big-ass (10'x4') garden box today, and have another to go. Hopefully we'll have them in place by the end of the week. I get to go kayaking tomorrow - we'll probably head up to the upper MacK. I'll pack my camera and dry-box and try to get some pix to post.
Before signing off, check this out. George Bush - you know, Mr. Moral Values - will be attending a dinner event with a porn producer and porn actress Mary Carey (who ran for governor of CA during the whole Schwarzenegger fiasco, and is apparently eyeing a run at the lieutenant governorship). Not that I have anything against porn, but I cannot abide hypocrites. And George W. Bush, in addition to being a liar, a cheat, a ne'er-do-well, an idiot, and general poor schmoe, is also a fucking hypocrite. Pay attention you Bible-bangers and other moral crusaders - whose moral degeneracy are you going to go one about now?
