Saturday was one of those great days. The weater was cold and clear. I ate a huge breakfast. I drank Philz coffee. I went to a craft fair and bought something. I saw Andrea. I watched two episodes of Freaks and Geeks ("Kim Kelly is My Friend" and "Tests and Breasts"). I knit a ton (started and knit 3 repeats of the Rainy Day Scarf, worked on the Curiously Clever Clogs). Then when things just couldn't get any better we went to see music. Music that started before 9pm. I love that! John had read about a band from San Pablo called Los Cenzontles playing at the Make-Out Room as part of MAPP this month.
Before we even got there we ran into two of John's former co-workers, who were also headed to see the band. It was a banner day! We were being social! Then, to top things off, the band was awesome. They perform a mixture of Mexican pop and traditional folklorico music. People (included us) danced, sang along, and generally whooped it up. As we were chatting with one of the former co-workers at the end, she said, "I think someone said that Linda Rondstadt is here."
At that moment I turned slightly to my right and sure enough there she was. Linda Freaking Ronstadt!! At the Make-Out Room! I grabbed Paul who was hanging in the back and pretty much at that same time, several other people discovered she was there. Some guy even appeared with a record to sign (swift thinking!). She looked kind of like someone's mom (actually with the same haircut as MY mom), wearing Uggs and going to see a band at the Make-Out Room. It was an excellent ending to an excellent day!
