Friday night after work, Tessa and I went to go see an old friend of mine, Brian who was celebrating his 34th birthday. He was having some friends over for a cookout along with some adult beverages. We brought some drinks ourselves - including the bottle of Jesse James' bourbon given to me by Jesse James Dupree! So I stuffed my face and had several shots of various drinks especially some Irish cream which was NOM!
The next day I had a station event as we were giving away college championship tickets to our finalists at Hooters on Laurens Rd. Good ol' Jeff Lewis Neal was in a dunk tank for some nominal prizes while waiting for the drawing of the grand prize. The turnout was great plus the eye candy was nice considering where we were! Plus I got to see JLN get dunked and even took a few shots at him myself but to no avail!
When the event was over, Tessa and I grabbed lunch at the Runway Cafe at the downtown airport which was a really neat experience. When then decided we were in the mood for a movie so we caught a matinee of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
. The film was very enjoyable although it did have a heavy environmental theme which I found to be fairly hypocritical of Hollywood.
The next day we met up with our real estate agent April to officially begin our house hunting. We looked at six different houses in the Taylors/Greer area and loved a few of them although there was one that has a special place in our hearts right now. Unless we see another house that steals our hearts away, this could very well be the house we go with but it's still early in the game!
House hunting is very exciting as is getting SLAVEDRIVER ready to surface! It has been a busy week for the band as we are getting ready to have shirts made which we will hopefully have in time to wear at Larkins on the River on March 18th where Moon, Al and myself will get our heads shaved to raise money for St. Baldrick's Children's Cancer Research. Please help us help the kids by donating at http://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/slavedriver
. And, as if THAT wasn't enough, Moon and I will be wrapping up recording our debut single "Push Me Down" tonight at Spectre Studios with Mike Huskey from GHOST IN THE MACHINE! I'll keep ya posted!
