Oh, friendslist. I have missed you so much! Please don't leave me like that again.

I had about elevendy things to post and I can't remember what most of them are now, though. Oh, here's a thing: I started my exploration of ice cream places that I talked about. Here is my review of the UCONN Dairy Bar at nommable, Tea's newish food blog.

I need to find a new place to hang out now that borders is closing. They lost the last of my goodwill when they took four days to put anything on their webpage or let the stores put up signs about the fact that they're going completely out of business, but my local store was a comfortable place to go and work.

The most exciting part of last week was going to Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, which I have wanted to do since about forever. Me and my sister Em (who is back from Alaska and sporting a brand-new collarbone piercing) went up on Sunday, and got settled in just in time for Tracy Grammer's main stage concert. It's been almost eight years since I first heard a Dave Carter song, and it was introduced with a remark about it being the first anniversary of his death. I think knowing that each new song I listened to was one of a finite set made me treat them differently, and all the times I've seen Tracy perform have been a bit bittersweet.

Of the people I hadn't heard of, my favorite was Spuyten Duyvil, who did an awesome Shady Grove and a Freight Train/Lois Collins mashup. By the end of the day we got over-heated and over-sunned, and spent far too much money on food, but it was worth it. And I got a skirt! Which is a big deal for me because I have trouble wearing anything that is not jeans but I've decided I need to work on that.

I think that is enough things. More later if lj still exists. Maybe after I graduate I could get them to let me work on their continuity planning?

LJ still exists! Whoo! Well, mostly. I love me some LJ, but I wish, you know, we could actually spend time together. And post things before we forget them.

UCONN sounds amazing. Say hello to the cow who made your ice cream! A hundred years of service! Sweet.
