Birthdays, weddings, and farewells

Yesterday I drove out to Issaquah for a Deirdre's birthday party. She had a surprise planned for us. Raven proposed in front of everyone assembled. At first it appeared that this was a surprise Raven had planned. Then Scott stood up and and said it would be difficult to follow that act, but he had more. He then had Shannon and Aaron put up draperies and handed a white shawl to Deirdre to wear. Just about the time we all figured out what was happening he asked them if they vowed to continue to be sarcastic to each other, stated the Internet gave him the power, and declared them married. Then they announced that Deirdre is pregnant.

That's a lot to fit in 5 minutes.

So here's to the rest of your marriage, evillinn and ravenmimura

As the party wound down, I left and headed to Seattle for the farewell show for Bat Country. I'm not sure I've even seen them play with Joe on bass, though I may have. I went to many of their shows from 2008 through 2010, which is right around the time that Joe joined. I was really glad there would be one last show I could see. When I planned my road trip, getting back in time to see the show was hugely important to the plan. I totally get shutting down the band after Cafe Racer, and I'm hugely happy I got the chance to see one last show.

And though it's the end of Bat Country, I have the album and memories. billycorazon and raqsindira, this better not be the end of music coming from you. Maybe a rap duo now? Something.

One hell of a night.

Thank you so much for being there, Phil! It made me very happy to see your face in the crowd. We'll definitely be unleashing more project-y goodness on the world at some point. XOXO

I'm so happy you were there, Phil. Having it all be a surprise was tricky, because it meant being okay with it if some people were unable to come, or chose not to. I'm so grateful that all of my most important people were there to celebrate with us.

I'm also happy that those that intended to made it to Bat Country in time. We did our best to time things for that to work out, but unsurprisingly, our stuff got started a little later than we had intended.
