Welcome to the New Year!! A.K.A. Vacation Ends – Posting Begins Anew!!

Hello again. Miss me? How was everyones Christmas/New Years break? Firda and I had a good holiday. We went down to my parents place for four days, got a crap load of booty for Xmas, at a fair amount of food, played a copious amount of board games, and hung out with a lot of people, some of whom I haven’t seen in more than a year.
New Years was also spent with friends in Brantford (15 minutes from my parents place). A nice small gathering, with 13 people. We had a good time hanging out, talking, listening to music and playing games. I had a couple of drinks, but not since the New Years of 2001 have I overindulged. Plus I needed to drive home.
We are back in Waterloo now. One more day of vacation and then back to work on Tuesday. We are going to see James Brown this coming weekend. My brother and sister-in-law got us tickets for Christmas. This will be the third time I’ve seen him live. The last time was eight or so years ago. The old bastard is now 72 years old, and still kicking it up. Let’s just hope he doesn’t beat anyone before the show.

  1. I had a week off during the holidays and it was absolutely lovely. Had to go back to work again today – blah.

  2. you’re back!
    question, i’ve been wracking my brain to remember the title of a song that was on the cd you made me for being the 1000th poster or something. it’s sung by a woman, i think she’s african american, and the background music is pretty repetitive. it goes up the scale & down the scale. any ideas?

  3. Nikki: I’ll have to check that out tonight when I get home. I can think of a couple that it could be but I’m not 100% sure. I’ll let you know this weekend or early next week 🙂 Did you lose the case for the CD? 🙂

  4. Happy new year! It sounds as if you had a great festive period.
    Hehe, 72 years old and still a legendary live performer. What a dedicated man 🙂

  5. Nikki: We are back from the weekend. I think the song you are talking about is called “Do Your Thing” by the Basement Jaxx (if it’s the very upbeat dancey song). If not let me know. The other one I could think of was the Lamb song on the album but the singer doesn’t sound African American.
