Things To Do In San Diego: January 26-29, 2014

This weekend more than most, I'm completely in awe of life. How do people do it? I used to work day jobs and they weren't always terrible, but life was pretty much work, nap, dinner, go out, pass out, and do it all over again. This weekend we've had Nova and it's awesome because most weeks we do some sort of activity after school, but then have to grind her with bathtime and homework time and reading time. But weekends, she's still up at the crack of dawn, and so after Darren entertains her all morning, and knocking out some homework, then I slowly awake and join them and have a whole day of entertainment, errands, running around town, and then we both have to work, juggling who works when so she's always got trustworthy supervision.

So it sucks a little to have missed UJBOD, but it was great working at the Irenic and seeing Of Montreal, and spending time with family, and meeting my new nephew Evan (who finally got out of NICU last week), and reveling in the Casbah's 25 years and feeling really fortunate that I get to be one of many behind the scenes. I guess I'm feeling some heavy blog posts coming on, so I'm making this week's mission to close out the Casbah 25 with a bang, get a new laptop, and then catch up with the 2000 emails that await from the Casbah's future shows, North Park Festival of Arts booking, Bike Infrastructure meetings, the Alvarez campaign, and all the other tours and bar stuffs I've just simply neglected while I've been laptopless. And then I will commit to writing again.

Ugh. What kind of blogger am I? Sunday through Wednesday archives are after the jump.
