hello, all. (ethel here) . . . .
just got back (literally, a few hours ago) from an epic, whirlwind Austin adventure with my dear old friend L. . . .she and i have been friends for almost 20 years and even though we live VERY far away from each other, i think we're closer now than ever. spent three days at the most AMAZING festival (Austin City Limits, of course)------- soaking up the music and the sunshine equally (i have about a zillion new freckles) and just enjoying the company of one of my oldest, truest pals. *LOVE*.
one of the shows we caught was The Flaming Lips. i wouldn't have considered myself a HUGE fan before, though i certainly admired them and sang along with The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song every time i saw that silly salad dressing commercial . . . . .
but now? now i'm a FAN (capitalized. which makes it WAAAAAAAY more serious) ...
officially. I LOVE THE FLAMING LIPS.
since seeing their show i'm inspired to make an eternity scarf (you know, the kind you just throw on your neck and loop haphazardly and both ends are connected? is that a real kind of scarf or did i just make that up? i digress. . . .) in bright, magical colors. (yes, i just said magical, and usually i make fun of people who say magical. oh well. it's the only appropriate word for a scarf inspired by The Flaming Lips.)
come back here and visit in a few weeks when i've finished my scarf..... and in the meantime, go listen to The Lips.
