(1) Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band; (2) Cats

(1) I just got home from hearing (and watching) the first concert of Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band. It was fabulous! I haven’t got the energy to write how fabulous it was, but it was exceptionally fabulous. Besides the awesome tide of music, there were circus-style performances: stilts, clowns, aerial silks, poi, hula hoops, belly dancing, and a couple of human marionettes. I was really tired, but I’m so glad I got myself there.

[EDIT: siderea has a great review here.]

(2) A couple weeks ago when I was over at plumtreeblossom’s, her cats were being especially cute and photogenic curled up on the bed, and so I recorded them for posterity.

And speaking of plumtreeblossom, we had a lovely time together this weekend. She came over on Saturday and made us yummy shepherd’s pie (leftovers of which I am having as I type), we watched The Forgotten, which was very interesting and sophisticated in some ways, and very cheesy in others, but was quite fun.

This morning we had brunch at a local diner, spent a little time along the Quincy shoreline, and then spent quite a lot of time at the huge Chinese grocery near my house that cathijosephine introduced me to. (And of course this means that we both came home with shocking quantities of interesting food.)

All in all, it’s been an excellent weekend.
