Twas the Night Before the Night Before Christmas (Today)

Yesterday I met one of my many idols to whom I have nothing interesting to say. ¬†If you live in Canada, claim to love music, and don’t know who Alan Cross is, for shame. ¬†Anyway, him. ¬†Three of us got up 3 hours before the crack of dawn and headed to the Feathery Pub in St Catharines (where I think I got bedbugs from a booth seat) to listen to Alan Cross read his version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, which I missed almost in its entirety because the microphones were not amplified, just broadcast out into radio-land. ¬†Cool. ¬†Anyway, it was a fun time and a definite experience I won’t repeat because I have never felt so uncomfortable being awake at such an hour on a day off. ¬†The low, low price of breakfast was donated to Community Care.

See? It was a fun time. Everyone had a lot of fun. Except that wiener kid pouting off to the right. Who let him in a bar anyway?

So that was good, and I learned a lot about regional transit that day (yesterday… just trying to make it sound historic at this early point in time). ¬†Laura even got to meet a filthy hippie from Three Days Grace, so good for her. ¬†I told the guy I would beat her if she didn’t just ask him for a picture, so if he actually comprehended that, which I doubt, it might have been what convinced him to let me take the picture.

Side note: Blackberry Playbook – Great for HD video, horrible for low-light stills. ¬†As with anything other than my precious camera, really. One day I’ll learn. ¬†Decent photos require the carrying around of an extra ten pounds on your already mangled left shoulder. (The right one’s for your purse.)

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
