Spirits

Nice and comfortable.

I hadn't measured this yet at the time of posting, but I thinking it's be best for a large.

**********

Friday night I actually got out of the house and went to Baton Rouge for a "Rock & Soul" musical event. My author-sistafriend Olympia Vernon (who was celebrating her birthday) and another sistafriend, Nikki, and I met up at Nikki's place before going. Y'all. I can't even express in words how wonderful it all was. We had so much fun! And the music! The music!!!! From EnVouge, to Al Green, To Run DMC, to Terence Trent Darby, to Morris Day and the Time, to Arrested Development!!, to Prince, to Montell Jordan, to on and on and on. They had the place rockin'. We danced/sang so much I was wishing I had a wheel chair to take me to the car. Soreness all over.

I only managed to get one photo of one of the bands early on (was groovin' too much to take pics), and it in no way captures to vibes that were flowing through there as the night progressed.



And the singer in the blue dress?? What a voice!

See them on myspace:

A few shots from later that night:


Nikki, Olympia, Me

Crackin' up trying to get a shot. Has anyone else ever laughed so much that you felt like your, liver, spleen, stomach, kidney, or something was gonna burst if you didn't stop? Where you're laughing so hard that sound ceases to come out, and it's just deep inside? These ladies had me in tears laughing with their hilarious stories. I have little control when the laughter sets in. I seriously thought I was dying at one point. Couldn't breathe, sit/stand straight, nothing. Just debilitating laughter



Me teary-faced and in pain from laughing excessively. I eventually had to remove myself to another area to try to regain my composure. Apparently Olympia--the perpetrator-- thought it a great time for a photo. Please pardon the cleavage.


Ziggy Marley the cat making a toy out of my leg. Nikki's got one of the most sociable cats I've ever met. Reminds me of a little puppy with all his playfulness.


Me and the b-day woman.

So I ended up getting back home in Lafayette at 2:30 am only to have to go to bed and wake up a few hours later to be somewhere at 7:30. But it was absolutely worth it.

With the help of Chrisette Michele I was able to make it home safely. I finally got her new album and have been listening to it repeatedly. It kept me awake on the 45 minute late night/early morning drive.

She's a superstar as far as I'm concerned. I can't wait to be at another of her shows to sing these new songs at the top of my lungs like last time.

Some of my favorites from her latest release:


"Fragile"



"Porcelain Doll"



"Another One"





An of course, "Epiphany".

Yes, yes, yes!

peace!

I laughed at the pic of you laughing. I am equal parts catalyst and culprit to the kind of hearty almost crippling laughter of which you speak! Love the cat!!
