I’m going to call the first day of vacation a success. I only checked work e-mail once, I ran a slew of errands (without spending a ton of money), did two loads of laundry, and listened to four podcasts. And it’s not even 5 o’clock yet!
I’m cooking a chicken recipe tonight that involves fennel, coriander, and blood orange. I’m fancy now, huh?
The next few records I plan on digging into: A.F.I.’s latest and the new releases from Sorority Noise, Heart Attack Man, the Bombpops, and Crusades.
That Warped Tour line-up might actually get me out there for the first time in years. Anti-Flag, the Ataris, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, the Adolescents, Sick Of It All, War On Women, Street Dogs, Big D and the Kids Table, Microwave, GWAR, Violent Thorr… And if I feel like driving down to Hartford? Strung Out too.
It’s International Puppy Day. So expect Finn spam later tonight. Probably after a few drinks.
I’m starting to get really, really hyped for the new Flatliners record.
On Tuesday, Lucca, a 12-year-old German shepherd, received the prestigious Dickin Medal, the highest military decoration awarded for valor in the UK. She’s the first American K9 to receive it. While serving, she led over 400 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and found over 40 explosives. She lost her leg when an IED detonated as she was searching for weapons. Thank you for your sacrifice, Lucca.
