Wednesday: adventures, debates, karaoke and great bands

31 Aug

Oh heck yes! Its Wednesday my fave day of the week! Psshhhtt Friday? oh no no, i love Wednesdays! And this Wednesday will probably be the best one yet granted everything goes as planned…otherwise you can find me moping around town kicking rocks and mumbling to myself.

Oh what’s the special occasion you ask? Oh nothing , i just have an interview with THE BEST Utah magazine ever! SLUG of course! To be honest i am still unclear about what exactly it is i am interviewing for but who cares? its SLUG! Also while i am lallygagging about in the SLC i will be attempting to attend a YELP ELITE family reunion…i still have 2 plus 1’s if anyone wants to come. If you are like most folks and are wondering what the heck yelp is just CHECK THIS OUT and see it in full glory.

After my SLC shenanigans i will be heading back to my one true home, the best place in the universe, OGDEN UTAH and heading over to the union station for some mayoral debates. Finally i get to make one as i have missed the last few, keep an ear out for some indie Ogden crew political debates soon!

After all is said and done i will settle on down at the sand trap for karaoke with Jackson the karaoke dude and my new indie Ogden crew. They are some rad folks so if ya want to meet us in real live person head on over!
