The Second Closest I've Ever Come to Death Was During a Blizzard in Iceland

The Nabob hasn't been yet, but is hoping that the Strathmore in Bethesda has proper opera seating or at least benches for people to rest their weary bodies. Seems that Sigur Ros (that's Victory Rose to you non-Akureyrites) is coming back to cause another narcoleptic panic among the area's hipsters in September. I don't base this on the music (which I like) but the fact that I saw three people collapse at their 9:30 show a few years back.

One of these poor yobs actually fell on top of the Governess and I was pressed by a bartender to help drag this fellow out of the club. And then was harassed by security when I tried to re-enter.

On the plus side, though, I saw the cutie from the CD Cellar at the show and was given an approving nod. You know which one. The one who silently, but accurately, judges you on what you buy and try to sell back. So wise, so wise.

was he the redhead? if so, i liked him (and feared him) too.

The Duchess said...

Oh, the redhead guy I see EVERYWHERE. And must agree, like and fear him.

I don't like the red-haired guy. I dimly recall him being unhelpful one time. Or maybe am imagining that. But even in that case, he should know better than to fit so easily into my paranoid fantasies.

I think I know the CD Cellar girl you're talking about. Is she the dark-haired one who used to always wear the NORML t-shirt?
