Started the weekend out slow, some fun at the work party, and then home to a hungry cat, nothing special as Friday nights go. Saturday morning, the sun was shining, so I broke fast in the park. Afterwords, I made my way up to Seattle Center to see Carly Calbero and Laura Love. Both did great sets; I’ve seen Carly before, she was her usual awesome self. I hadn’t seen Laura perform before, and she did not disappoint, managing to put out some serious energy.
When I got home from Folklife, I jumped on the scooter and headed out to look at a motorcycle, and ended up walking out with a new bike. By the time I got home again, there was an email offer from The Can Can, for a special price on a seated ticket to that night’s 10:30 show. I certainly couldn’t resist the chance to see the late version of Tune In Tokyo at such a bargain, and made my way down. As I expected, there’s a bit more skin than the early show, though still burlesque not stripping =p They had made a few other tweaks as well, and the scrolling backdrop worked much better than last time. Also, since I wasn’t full-meal hungry, I tried the poutine, and nom nom tasty indeed. It was somewhat amusing to listen to some guy in the standing-room only section, just over my shoulder, talking most of the evening about his sex life, to his two female friends. It was kinda funny to listen to him go on and on about how important physical attraction was for him, then contrast that with how he took care of himself. Let’s just say I agree with his friend that suggested a change in his standards. The waiter forgot to bring me more water and one of my drinks, distracted by the table next to me I guess, and felt bad enough that he comped all my drinks for the eve, which seemed a pleasant overreaction to one slow moment out of an evening of otherwise stellar service. But I won’t turn down a freebie =p
If there was any downside to the evening, it was that I was super sleepy all day Sunday and accomplished basically nothing, not even making it out to Folklife again. I did a few chores around the house at least. Played some ipad tower defense app.
Monday was another semi-busy day, with a very short kayaking trip (it was windy), lunch in the sun, and another walk through of Folklife.
