Looking Forward and Forward and Forward

This weekend, Monkey and I are having a housewarming-type party (Finally! some might say).The guest list is around thirty, and Monkey and I are a bit nervous. We have never entertained so many people. Well, except at our wedding, but that was different. We've always lived in such small places before, that after you put a half dozen people inside, it was a full house. Not that we live in some palatial estate, now, but, it can fit a few more people. We are excited to have a party, of course.

We're also excited to be going back to Omaha on Monday night to see Drive By Truckers. They are playing at the same place that Daniel Johnston played a few weeks ago. Monday night shows are a bit of a hassle, especially when they are an hour away, but, I am looking forward to it.

But, what I am really looking forward to is the True/False Film Festival next weekend in CoMo. It will be somewhat strange being a visitor in a place I called home for many years, but I am looking forward to it with great eagerness. I look froward to seeing great films. I look forward to walking familiar streets that may not be quite as familiar anymore. I look forward to seeing some friends. It will be a good weekend. And, I am taking Friday off, so, it will be a long weekend. Hooray!

That's a lot of good social activity. I hope your housewarming was fun! I want to hear all about it. It sort of hearkens me back to some, "Can I get anyone anything?"

I hope you have a great time at T/F! I wish we could be there with you, but we'll have to live vicariously. Maybe next weekend P and I will make some sesame ginger sauce in honor of all good things CoMO (and especially Main Squeeze Good Fortune Wraps)!

Is there any chance we get to see you guys while you're here for T/F? I know your schedule is well packed, but let me know if we can meet you somewhere for a lunch, dinner, dessert, drinks, or Big O.
