I can't believe it has been three days since my last post! And I've done very minimal sewing....well, that's because it has been a busy end-of-week. On Thursday, my back was flaring something awful, so did a little bit more sewing on the birthday bear for my boyfriend's mechanic's son's first birthday (that's a long one!). Then I took a nap in preparation for our long evening. We drove down to MGM at Foxwoods Casino to go see Weezer...for free! The casino offered us free tickets (read: please come gamble) and we jumped at them. Now, I'm not a huge Weezer fan or anything...more of a casual listener, but I've always enjoyed what I heard. We got there just 15 minutes before the show and found our seats in the nosebleeds while the opening act, Rival Schools, was playing. They weren't too bad, I kinda enjoyed the music....more so than the frontman's voice, but there you have it. After another 25 minutes, Weezer finally came on and I was surprised at how much fun I had! Rivers Cuomo, Weezer's frontman, was beyond entertaining! Jumping down into the crowd during a lot of the concert, letting fans sing into his mic, grabbing people's hats, rolling off the stage in a desk chair, jumping onto the drum kit via a trampoline. They played a lot of their biggest hits...Island in the Sun being my favorite, or maybe Buddy Holly. It's a toss up. My back was really starting to hurt, so I was standing, sitting, trying to stretch out my back during the entire thing. By the end of the night, I was really feeling it, but it was totally worth it.
Yesterday, I had an interview for a floating teacher position....a little last minute, but it went well. I still have my other interview in August, but could this be a glimmer of hope? Could I be employed in the next couple of weeks? I sure hope so!! We spent the rest of the afternoon at the Museum of Science, checking out the new Whale exhibit. It was so hot outside there was no way I was going to do anything outdoors. By the time we got home, around 7pm, I was so exhausted that I went to bed...and slept til 10 this morning! Hopefully, the rest of the weekend will be a little more productive...or at least spent at the beach in Rhode Island. We'll see.
