Joke of the day (made up by someone else, but HILARIOUS anyways!)
Q: Why did the artist get a job to help maintain his car?
A: Because he needed the monet, to buy Degass, to make the Van Gough!
okey doke, just jotting down some events to look back on the summer of 06. PROBABLY one of the top three summer I've ever had! Summer of '02 and '04 were pretty good too, and the summer of 1990 was amazing as well, but '06 very well COULD take the cake...we'll see, it's not over yet! Favorite times were frequenting the ropeswing and beech hill farms, cliff jumping 40 feet at the quarries, dressing up as PIRATES! Amesbury trips, PLUM ISLAND...what a beautiful place. 4th of July, swimming near the ropeswing will Will and Ben and Barbara, that play day with Nicole and Rheanna, climing tress near the beach, somehow convincing PATTY to go on the ropeswing! NOT the fact that Patty went to DC and couldn't play/talk/chill :( scooting really fast really late @ concord, canoeing and playing on the sandwalls and mudwalls in early summer, and goofing around every day with Brad.
ummm so whats been new.
recently I went to Warped Tour in Fitchburg with Cory, Jeff, Sean and Kevin M. The traffic was sooo bad we were able to run out of the car and into the woods for a bathroom break and still have time to calmly walk back before any car moved. HOWEVER, it served as an amazing bonding experience regardless. When we got there we saw Saves the Day, Motion City Soundtrack, Less Than Jake (from afar) The bouncing Souls, The Academy Is, Armour For Sleep, and last but not least, THURSDAY! All of them put on great shows, but I'd have to say Motion City and Thursday tied for best shows of the day. Haha, Jeff and Cory kept throwing me into the crowd and I was like nooo I don't wanna crowd surf, I just want to have my eyes glued to the band the ENTIRE time! But once, as the crowd was carrying me away I see someone waving and mouthing PETE BEST! and it was Liz Patria! I was like nooo let me get down! But we got to catch up after the show. It was great to see Sara Noyes there (as well as Marcus) and see Saves with her, and awesome seeing Katy Giguere, Cory Cain, Jim Fitzpatrick, and utterly STELLAR to run into Heidi B! By the time we all got back we were caked in dirt. but man we rocked with MIGHTY THUNDER in the pit! I still don't think my lungs have completely recovered from all the dust but oh well :/
I wasn't able to make it to balloonapalooza or the show The Format was playing in Vermont which was incredibly sad, but I was sooo tired.
On Sunday Brad and I went to Soulfest! It was sunday so the only real band that was playing was Casting Crowns. There was one worship band we saw before hand was craaazy though because they would play normal worship songs, but like with five minute guitar solos. Casting Crowns was amazing, I loved the things the lead singer would talk about inbetween songs. It was great to see Jacqui, Hannah, Mindy, Sam, Colby, and RJ! The tents had some really cool stuff inside, but I wish I could've gone to at least SOME of the conferences. LAST but not least, I saw Jill and was able to give her her Christmas in July present, and catch up for a little and see her friends Mark and Danielle! After that Brad and I went for a swim in the lake, played on the play ground and headed homeward where we found CHRIS NOYES, Dusty Grey and Matt JENSEN playing at the bandstand with a bunch of fun people watching. That was a great time, we were able to see Bob and Will back from Bermuda. After Matt was done playing Will came over and ate dinner/played at the makeshift ropeswing at our house and then me, Bob, Will, Brad, Laura and Sarah A went for a DIP at the St. Pauls docks. GOOFY time.
It's crazy how the summer is winding down, soon Brad, Ben, Will and I might go to Gauchos, and then my family goes to Disney world as one last HURRAH! at the end of summer. I've already started packing for Keene. YIKES! Long entry, sorry, but no real need for anyone to read this far :-P
thats all I can record right now.
