On friends and the really cool things they do.
Bet you thought you'd heard the last of me for a few months, eh?

So, here's to friends who give me free tickets to really cool things! I already mentioned the folk concert Andie took me to, and then last night 3ng1i5hn3rd invited me to the Canasta show, because she knows the band. I'd heard of them before, but not heard anything by them (except the songs on the website that she had me download). They were excellent. I'm seriously thinking about paying to get back in next Monday just to hear their possibly-one-time-only cover of The Only Living Boy in New York. For those of you that don't know, that would probably make the list of my top 10 songs. And hey, isn't any band that has a lead singer/trombonist just automatically cool? If you're the music downloading sort, and like upbeat rock, I'd say check out their website, and look up Slow Down Chicago, Major Tom Coming Home, and Shadowcat.

But the really big news, and the real reason for this post is that suzzwuzz won a Fulbright scholarship! She'll be going to Morocco next fall to work with one of the only (or maybe the only?) abused women and children hospice in Morocco. How cool is that? (At least, that's what I remember of her proposal. It's been a few months now.) Anyway, serious congratulations to you Suzy. It's fitting that the Fuzzy Coconut's going back to Morocco...
