nerd alert: 8.19.10

comedy rock band.  enough said.

ice cream man.

kind of craving this guy's life right now.  how sick would it be to roadtrip across the country, checking out music festivals, and handing out free ice cream?  yes, please!

check out the ice cream man's latest video, featuring my "friend," Amos Lee.  (and yes, i say friend, since i did meet Amos Lee this spring, and played wiffleball with him and his band.  it was awesome!)

more videos here!

football season.

football season is almost here.  and i'm soooo excited!  but let me be clear.  there is only one kind of football - SEC Football.  i could care less about brett favre and his "will he or won't he" games. (today, apparently, he will.  the strib is reporting he's finally in town.)  big 10?  yeah right.  and get over yourself, notre dame.  i will forever be a SEC fan.

more importantly, i will always be a gamecock fan.  i wasn't born and bred, but i'm definitely a convert.  my years in south carolina were amazing!  i learned from the best how to tailgate, drink, and cheer for the perpetual underdog.  i also learned "cock" is not a dirty word, but something to be proud of being!


watching our baseball team win the national championship this year was an unbelievable experience.  but everyone in the gamecock nation still hopes our football team will prove itself in the big games.

so here's to another year.  another season to kill the tigers, dawgs, and gators.  and a health carolina to all the big ole cocks out there!

so, mark your calendar!

go. fight. win. kick ass.  go cocks!!

music over law.

Another fabulous week full of clutch songs!  I'm thinking this blog should have been called since there's so much more music magic than law.

On Monday, I saw Something Corporate at the Cabooze.  It was a last minute concert but a girl just can't say no to live outdoor music!

On Tuesday, I met some friends at Solera for a meeting and we stayed for the evening rooftop movie: GREASE SING-A-LONG!!!  Grease is one of my favorite movies ever.  Hands down classic.  And a Minneapolis rooftop on a summer night with all of your new best friends singing with Danny, Sandy, Rizzo and the rest of the Pink Ladies and T-Birds - well, it's just about perfect.

Wednesday I heard one of my favorite Mellencamp songs on the way home...John Mellencamp was one of my favorite concerts ever.  I was the youngest person there but it was amazing.  Everyone sang every word to every song...the entire night!

On Thursday, I bought my Sara Bareilles tix for November and am so stoked!

I guess music magic is what gets me through the week.  I like work, but I'm ready for school to start and to get my schedule set.  I'm such a planner but I feel so up in the air right now.  I'm still waitlisted for a class and the firm's management meeting isn't for a couple weeks so I don't know if I'm going to be working there in the fall yet.  I really hope I am asked to stay on, but who knows what's going to happen.

But, I'm trying harder not to be such a planner/worrier.  Live in the moment.

Just love the journey.
