Yesterday I woke up at like, 7:30am and screwed around online, waiting for Blake to wake up and since he wasn’t waking up and we’d made plans the night before to have breakfast – and dammit, I was hungry! – I went in the bedroom and sat on his chest until he woke up. Then we went to our usual place and ordered the usual (2 eggs with peameal and a side of bacon) and then we checked the mail and BLAKE’S XMAS PRESENT WAS THERE BUT IT’S A SECRET SO I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT IT IS.
Then I came home and Wes practically crawled into my lap and begged me with his big, baby browns to play Warcraft with him. Which I did until level 20 so he could get his mount. By the time we’d gotten back to Orgrimmar from Gilneas, it was time to get read to go to the Mother Mother show, so that’s what I did.
Not that there’s much to do to “get ready” for a show. There were lots of girls in mini skirts and lots and lots of leggings and skinny jeans, but I just wore jeans and a t-shirt and I didn’t check my coat so it’s not like what I was wearing mattered. I just threw on some mascara and lipstick and called it a day.
Apparently Justin Bieber was playing the Air Canada Centre last night too so I kept telling people online that that’s where I was going haha
I’d seen Mother Mother before at Lee’s Palace but this time it was at the Kool Haus, which is a much bigger venue. Or maybe not bigger exactly, just different. I had tickets to see them last fall but I was using a walker at the time, I was half bald from my hair falling out and I still had a vac dressing on my cheese pizza wound, so I opted not to go. It really bummed me out, especially because I’d gotten the tickets just before I got sick and had been looking forward to the show.
Anyway, Mother Mother THIS time was spectacular. Definitely in my top 5 favourite shows of all time. They had crazy lights and they even covered a Pixies song (“Cactus”) and a good time was had by all.
What surprised me about the show was all these dudebros everywhere. Lots of guys in pairs of two and I don’t think they were gay. Mother Mother doesn’t strike me as a guy’s band, really, but there they all were. When Mother Mother came out for their encore, 5 dudebros in front of my actually double high fived each other. These guys didn’t come together I don’t think, they were like, “pit buddies”. So funny.
Anyway, that’s all I have to report. As soon as I’m finished this post Blake’s going to make me drive to Wasaga Beach to get mushroom pizza, which I really don’t want to do, but I haven’t driven in a month so I guess I really should.
Next Saturday we have to go to Blake’s work’s kid Xmas party at Medieval Times. There is not enough Ativan in the world for this so I have no idea if I’ll be able to go. I don’t even really know what it is. I’ll have to research some more…
Anyway, I’m starving and need mushroom pizza. I’ll leave you with Mother Mother’s two best songs off the new album “Sticks”:
PS. $25 for parking and $5 for a Diet Coke is HIGHWAY ROBBERY.
