the marshall plan and other tunes

Apparently I ordered an extra CD when I cleared out my wish list on half.com, because in addition to the three CDs I was expecting (Cultosaurus Erectus, Fire of Unknown Origin and Mirrors) I also got The Revolution by Night.

I'd owned Mirrors sometime in the past, but not The Revolution by Night; as it happens, I would have better off just getting the latter and not the former, since The Revolution by Night rocks a fair amount and Mirrors doesn't; only the title cut is any good, really. Wish I'd remembered that before I'd ordered it. :(

jamestrainor was in town this weekend, and it was good to see him on Saturday. No moving happened since the bed of P's truck was still wet from the rain on Friday, but that's all right. Mom was happy to see both her grandchildren, awkward conversation between the cousins occurred, and eventually he and I headed out with P to the Malibu Grill, a churrasqueria in Fairfax where much meat was consumed. After dinner we went over to Chez Seastrom for an exchange of books and farewells; I got home a little before midnight after stopping for coffee on Route 7 so I could be sure I would in fact arrive home. Stayed up way too late finishing A Small Colonial War and as a result slept in until after 1300.

No plans for today or tomorrow, but I'll probably be getting together with Mr. B for a long-delayed meeting with Charlie Groark later this week.
