[ ]
Genny called me Thursday night while I was at WallCrawlers letting me know that she was on her way back to Atlanta from Miami. I met up with her at the Vortex on Friday night for some grub and some catch-up. Given that she's recently transplanted back from San Diego, she didn't have a winter coat, so we braved the bitter wind (at some thirty-some degrees) to try and find a coat at the Edgewood shopping district. Alas, they're already a season ahead in clothes, so she had to make do with my peacoat.

Had some plans fall out on me Saturday night, so I got together with her again to see the Kingsized show at the Variety Playhouse for the Kingsized Elvis Birthday Spectacular. The show began with a video of Mike interviewing various people on the street on their feelings about Elvis. A few fans, a few non-fans, quite a few freaks. Mike even mentioned, during an interview, that Elvis is in everybody (except for Michael J. Fox).

When the set started, the Dames A'Flame came out and made it a visual treat to go with the audio. They played a lot of favorites, including "Promised Land," "Suspicious Minds," and "American Trilogy." Was a little disappointed that I didn't get to see them play "Do the Clam" like they did at the Trader Vic's Tiki show. Nor did they play "(You're the) Devil in Disguise" which is pretty much my favorite Elvis song.

Met up with batnandu on Sunday to help him out with some yardwork--we're trying to clear a decently-sized space of sticks and foliage so we can train Tai Chi and Bagua on a regular basis. We ineptly cut a large branch off of one of his trees, and then sat down and watched portions of various movies, including Batman Begins and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey. Station!

[User Picture]It was just hilarious to watch because unlike the first one, I thought this movie sucked the first time I saw it... I've yet to change that opinion but I still think it's funny as all hell... mostly for the wrong reasons.

I think I have to agree with you on that one. batnandu and I really enjoy referring to the movie, however, simply because the villain's name, "De Nomolos" is not just "Ed Solomon" backwards, but also really funny to say out loud.
