Great Googa Mooga, 5/19/12


Yesterday I spent the day in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, taking in the tastes and sounds of the first ever Great Googa Mooga, sampling the tastes of local hot spots and hearing some great music with friends. Sure, the lines were long and buying drinks was more than a hassle than it should have been, but it was still a lot of fun. I can now add The Roots and Holy Ghost to the list of bands I’ve seen live. I had also never been to Prospect Park and it had been a while since I had spent so much time in Brooklyn. There were many kinks (the Moula cards that never were, anyone?), but I would totally go back.


Happy Birthday to Me!

Turning 29 has been pretty good to me, so far. I celebrated Monday, May 7 by working,sneaking off to the library to read for a couple of hours, and then having drinks and dinner with friends. Two days later, President Obama made news by saying he openly supports gays’ rights to marry. This makes for great Stewart/Colbert/Maher fodder of course, as many will come out and complain like you know they will (and have), as if they’ve got nothing better to do than to be offended by anything the President has to say. Never mind the naysayers, of course, because for everything important in life that leads to progress will always (and I mean always) be met with naysayers. Oh, yes, and I did finish that book I started reading on my birthday in a couple of days. Of course, that couple of days was really just short bursts of reading that weren’t more than a half an hour each. I also got a bit productive around the house, knocking off things on my to do list at a faster pace than I usually take. Also, some of my favorite shows on television right now got renewed for another season: Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office and 30 Rock. All in all, pretty, pretty good.
