duct tape man

Fun get-together last night with Allison, Jodi, and David. A & J & I finally got to sing a song for David that I wrote for him several years ago called Duct Tape Man...David did most of the sound engineering for our CD, and used duct tape a lot (once he used it to tape up my mouth! hmph...). Went to Swiss Chalet for dinner; Jeff joined us partway through. Came back to the apartment afterwards and talked a while over a bottle of grape/plum wine (a gift from Paul Kwinn, a sort of thank-you for lending Puzzlebox their keyboard at FKO) and trying out interesting snack-bits from an Interfilk package I bought at the FKO auction (donated by Diana Huey).

Many thanks, by the way, to Ellen Kranzer who bought our Activity Fun Graffiti Book at the Interfilk auction! It went for about $115, I think.

I've posted some of our new songs on the web, by the way, including The Truth Is Out There (my X-Files song),
Battle On! (Xena song by Allison; we did this as a one-shot at FilKONtario), Ich Mag Shokolade (by Debbie in honour of Juliane Honisch and Kerstin Droge (can someone please tell me how I can get the umlaut symbol?)).

I'll be picking up FKO pics tonight and will post a few. Also, I never did get around to posting the California pics in my report. I am having hard disk space problems, and may have to take off some photos from the UT site. If you want to take a look at the California pics before I remove them, however, they are at:

Going to a Musical Box concert tonight with Jeff, if his back holds out. :-)
