I don't get to see Sunspot. :(

Ben, one of the guys in Sunspot, had sent me an email saying that they would be at the Red Sea on Cedar on May 6th. I was all excited that I would get to see them live until I looked at a calendar and the date sunk in. That is the day my friend Dawn is getting married. Since I'm a bridesmaid I can't really sneak outta there to go to a bar...
*pout*

If you want to check out their music they've got a few mp3s for download on their site. Click here

So, if you like it, they'll be here in May. I don't know how much the cover will be but from looking at past shows it's generally less than $10.

According to the generic mailing list email that I also got, they are also going to be in Austin, TX next weekend:
SAT 3/18 - Austin, TX - Nasty's - Party night at SXSW!

SUN 3/19 - Austin, TX - Vanilla Girl - acoustic show for the GoGirls Showcase at 3pm

The website lists a few more shows through the end of April in WI, IL, KY & MI. The details for the May show in Mpls aren't up yet though.

Hey, did you notice that there's a little snow out there?

Yup, It's the annual March over 6" snowfall. State High School Hockey tournaments just ended, time for the snow!

While there may be some bitching from my flist out there about the snow, I just have to say that I absolutely LOVE this snowfall! The big March snowfall that we get every year is my absolute favorite. It's not too cold. It's big fluffy flakes. The world is gorgeous. And it doesn't stay for more than a few days, a week at the most. In fact, I'm about to use the last few minutes of my lunch to go out with my camera!

Now that he's a college graduate hellbob is working from home. I, on the other hand, am at work. I can make it from home to work in about 20 minutes when the roads are clear and there are no accidents or such affecting traffic. Today it took about 50-55 minutes. I do have to add that it would probably only have been about 40-45 minutes if I hadn't been so busy paying attention to the road surface and the cars around me and such to actually notice when I got to my exit from 100 to 62. So I went on to the next exit, turned around, and headed back to 62. Oops.

So many people called in that they are requiring 4 hours of overtime. However, those that made it in today got free pizza for lunch, vending machine coupons, and the OT is available to us, but not required!! Yay!

Those of you who are both members of hundredpics and friends of me will be lucky enough to get DOUBLE the picture spam! i'm not sure how many days I'll make it, but since I was out taking pictures today I decided it would be a good time to start. So, here's the first of my 100 pics for 100 days...
