march twenty-fourth

Five for March 24th:

Front step removal. To my surprise, this big project I was thinking might easily take the better part of two days to accomplish was all but finished in the span of Jane’s first nap on Saturday morning. Getting them put back in might be a different story, but glad to get the job started.

R.I.P. Oderus Urungus. I’ve lost times of how many times I’ve seen Gwar over the years. From the early days of Kevin’s mom dropping us off at Mississippi Nights to working with them many years later when doing artist relations, they were always one of the most fun bands to see live, and also a very cool group of dudes. It’s a sad day for metal.

No fish fry. Beautiful evening weather on Friday made the idea of sitting inside a catholic school gymnasium eating fried fish sound like medieval torture, so we opted to grab some Greek food on the patio at Olympia. More expensive, but worth it.

Cool stuff. One thousand posts today (!), new issue of Transworld Skateboarding, 26 Reasons to Appreciate the Hidden Gem of St. Louis, homemade lasagna, Clifton Park cleanup day, donuts, abandoned space gun, 31" Star Wars Shock Troopers at Target.

Skating rules. Missed the Saturday trip to YAP, but managed to squeeze in a couple of hours at Ramp Riders on Sunday with the crew before heading out to north county. Felt super comfortable and thought I skated pretty well. Maybe it’s being there in the daylight? Also busted out the slider bar for a quick parking lot dork-around over on the Hill.
