Last night my friend Dawn and I went to see Devo at the Jimmy Kimmel show. They rock!
Earlier in the day I was so worried because it had been raining all afternoon, and it was an outdoor show. But it quit raining and the clouds went away and it was a great night!
We got to Hollywood & Highland to find out there was a movie premiere at Grauman's Chinese, and parking was difficult, but we finally found a spot! We headed across the street and got in line. Once we got on the lot, they had the studio portion of the show playing on screens so we could watch it. It wasn't too exciting, but it did make the time go by quicker.
Then it was time for Devo! They came out and played their newest and a few others, and then it was over. But I was still very excited to see them as I had never seen them live before.
On our way back to the car, we saw something that just cracked us up. It was Colonel Sanders - you know, the KFC guy - and Jesus. Walking together. What we couldn't figure out is why these guys chose to dress up like them! We tried so hard to get a good picture using our cell phones, but they all ended up blurry. We even stalked them a bit trying to get pictures! If you're ever in Hollywood with a camera and see these two together again, could you please send me a picture? :)

I have been working on a new line of stretchy chainmaille bracelets! These bracelets are so lightweight, as they are made with silicone and aluminum rings. The best thing about them is the fact you can just slip them on and not have to worry about any clasps! I have two new designs, diamond and daisy. Where my other stretchy chainmaille bracelets are simple, these have more texture and shape to them. Some should be in my shop hopefully by the end of the month, and will come in yellow, blue, purple and rust. I'm open to any other color suggestions.. if you have one, please leave a comment!

There are times when, at 43 years of age, I feel older than dirt. Having an active 6 year old boy doesn't help matters any - sometimes I think he steals all my energy! We have Disneyland annual passes, and last year made a great discovery - The 80'z All Stars - an 80's cover band that plays at Tomorrowland Terrace!
I was a teen and young adult in the 80's - I graduated high school in 1985. I grew up in a college town, and had access to a lot of great live music. I was friends with many bands, and as I grew into adulthood I would spend almost every single night of the week out at bars and clubs to support them, especially during weeknights. I kinda kept up this behavior pretty much til I got married in the mid-90's.. then I think I became dull, LOL!
But now once or twice a month I can go to Disneyland, sometimes with my family, sometimes for a mom's night out, and relive some of the terrific music courtesy of the 80'z All Stars!
My son idolizes them.. he plays air guitar and drums at home, and will copy some of their moves. And the best thing is - he loves the 80's music! He's always after me to listen to my iPod! But I digress...
Last month he got to meet the band members. He was so thrilled! They were all so great with him! When I went to see them last night with a couple of other moms, he begged to go..
I think he's counting down the days just like his mom til the next show.. Thank you, Nigel, Devo 2.0, Jamie Star and the Karate Kid for some great times! :)
