Shaping Up To Be a Great Weekend

There is a threat of storms Saturday and Sunday this weekend. That's concerning. However, there has been a threat of storms on and off for the past fortnight, and nothing has really come of it.

Tonight, EDDIE ATE DYNAMITE plays a punk rock set at the Frequency in Madison WI, in support of another band's (DEVIL TO DRAG) EP release party. Three other bands will also be performing, for a total of five. I am not sure where EDDIE ATE DYNAMITE falls in the lineup of bands, but it stands to be a fun night.

Weather permitting, I want to get at least one decent bike ride in this Saturday. I was thinking it would be fun to bike downtown along the Southwest Commuter Bike Path, some six odd miles one way, and go to the farmer's market on the Capital Square on Saturday morning. It might actually be preferable to do this if it is raining a little bit, because there will be less hordes of people clogging the outdoor market throughfares. I need to stock up on fresh veggies and Paleo-friendly meats like bison, elk, and emu. I will, naturally, consume the better part of a full bag of squeaky cheese curds while I surf the culinary merchandise. I realized, as I was writing that last sentence, that I have virtually completely cut cheese out of my diet the past few months, with the exception of pizza and cheeseburgers when I occasionally dine out. So a bag of cheese curds will be a rare treat.

I might try to go see a matinee of the new Mad Max movie on Saturday or Sunday, if I can find some interested peeps to go with. After the gig tonight, my weekend is pretty wide open until the Funks Pub Open Jam on Sunday evening, starting about 4 PM. I will do some writing and music as time permits.

I'll probably mow the lawn and tend the garden a bit, if the weather cooperates. The garden is in pretty good shape right now though, and some rain will only foster its awesomeness.

My dog Foster seems to be almost fully recovered from the eye injury he got about three weeks ago, after great veterinary expense. Luckily, he did not need surgery, or else I would be in the poor house. He'll get his last few rounds of antibiotic drops, which he hates, this weekend, and then on Monday I expect him to get a clean bill of health from the vet. His next major expense will probably be a teeth cleaning. I found some meaty flavored nylabones at the pet store that he seems to like and that may help clean his teeth a bit, but he is wearing a protective head cone right now, because of the eye, and can't maneuver the bone to his mouth with his paws as a result. While this makes the bone ineffective for teeth cleaning, it is quite amusing to watch him try to manipulate the bone.

In a fortnight, on Saturday May 30, I am hosting another house concert, featuring HIATVS. I am trying to raise money for the food and beer (mainly beer) with a fundraising campaign online. But so far no takers. I may have to modify the suggested donation to a lower amount to garner more interest.

That's about all.
