I Want To Hug You Like A Santa Claus

So it's been a pretty crappy week. Boo is still missing and I don't really have much hope of him showing up. I also went to the doctor yesterday and I have to have surgery as apparently I am lumpy. Nothing serious they just want to double check that everything is ok, but surgery. Going under. Not good times.

So I've been really depressed all week. Yesterday at work Courtney asked me to go to dinner with her to try and cheer me up. Well I didn't want to stay at home as it is only a reminder that Boo is not there so I suggested that we go to the Brewhouse as I had never eaten there. Best choice of the entire night.

After about an hour a band started to play and it was the most fantastic thing I have ever stumbled across by mistake. They are called Skippy and the World Peace Leaders. I immediatly text messaged my sister as they opened with a Miami Sound Machine Song. I continued to text message Ady every time they played a new song as it was unthinkable that she was not there to experience the joy of this band and the non stop laughter they caused.

A few of the artists covered in their set included Wilson Philips, TLC, a song from Mary Poppins, Mariah Carey, Neil Diamond, Nine Inch Nails with a change in the lyrics to Closer which resulted in "I want to hug you like a santa claus" and Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid.

Last night was a fan-freaking-tastic night which has snapped me out of my bad mood. Thank you Skippy and the World Peace Leaders and Ms. Courtney. I may have to go and see the band again next week. hee hee. If anyone wanted to listen to what they hell I'm talking about and confirm that I'm crazy the link above has a few downloads of their songs. Good times good times.

yar, my friend from school had a lump and got it cut out and she was in class like 3 hours later. i was horrified and all, 'shouldn't you be at home? on drugs? lying down?' and she was like, 'dood, i feel fine.' only without the 'dood' because she's fully from china.

So of course Chris knows Skippy because he knows EVERYONE. I now have a way of finding out whenever this boy is playing. YES!
