It's been a good weekend. I got to hang out with my sisters in Portland. It was great to catch up, and spend time with each other. We all have similar senses of humor, so it's always a great time.
Nicole came back to Eugene with me, and we went with Chad to the Pink Martini concert. AMAZING! Holy moses, I was blown away. They are probably my favorite group ever. All the musicians were so skilled and talented. They have over 12 musicians. They sing songs in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Portugese, and I'm sure more. They have a trumpet player, pianist, violinists, harpist, trombonist, vocalist, bass player, guitarist, and percussionists. I know this sounds dorky, but they are far from it. They write their own songs, and perform songs from old movies and records. Each song has a unique sound that ranges from Mexican mariachi, to french cabaret, to geisha-like asian, and all with great lyrics. I turn on their music, and I just have to start dancing. It's also fun to listen to the Spanish songs, cuz I'm learning Spanish. And, as bad as it sounds, Spanish is a better language for poetry and lyrics, it's just smoother and more melodic than English. Anyway, I can't explain them, just look them up on itunes, or limewire or something, they're better than any current pop singers.
Chad wasn't even sure if he really wanted to go to the concert, but once they started, he was completely won over.
This guy was at the concert. We couldn't help but laugh cuz his hair looks like Top Ramen, he is just so Eugene....lol. Chad was pretending to take a pic of Nicole and I, when he was really photographing this interesting character...moohaha.
Here we are, off to the concert. No, I'm not having a baby, the dress just looks funny cuz the seeming and how I'm standing. Unfortunately, we didn't take any other pics. But, that's my sista, isn't she adorable?
