One third the way done crocheting these peacock feathers. Just another 70ish to go and then the backing blanket and this project will be doooone.
There is so much happening in the new world of Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, but few things more important than the announcement of our fall tour. It’s been some time since I have embarked on a proper headlining run and an even longer time since I have been out supporting a new full length record (more on that soon). This is an incredibly exciting time for me and the band. The new songs feel built for the stage and I cannot wait to share them alongside old favorites this fall. I hope to see you there!

So, I see 5 days that work for me. If y’all need me at the end of October, tough shit.
Ughhhh. I love live music. Tonight was a fun adventure and it’s always nice finding new band friends.
But just few minutes after the call, shells start falling down on the hospital — the fourth floor, third floor, second floor. Smoke, fire, dust all over."

I washed my car. Tried to turn it on to move it up to the top of the drive to finish drying. Now it won’t turn on/turn over. The dash computer stopped working after refusing to pull up the tire pressure and saying it’s -40 degrees. The only thing my car does is unlock, the overhead light turns on, and the car gives me the engine problem light. Sometimes it tells me something about the brakes. Sometimes it tells me something about the airbags. And when I turn it on it gives me the anti-theft lock symbol which flashes and then turns off. I HAVE DONE NOTHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN WASHING MY CAR.
And, honestly, this is the reason why I should be lazy. Because doing things causes other somewhat related things to go wrong.
Also. This. At some point I will meet Andrew and there won’t be a terrible line and I’ll be able to tell him the story of my tattoo without feeling horrible about holding up said long line. And yes. I do fangirl incessantly over the music and the majesty of Andrew McMahon. #andrewmcmahon
I follow so many knitting blogs that when I see a pic of a beautiful person in a hat or sweater I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be searching for the pattern, admiring stitch work, and ogling the yarn or just looking at the beautiful person.
