Outside Lands

*If* I get my job back, guess when the first day of school is? August 16th, aka my birthday. WACK,right?? Forget about my dreams of having a slow brunch at La Note and finally ordering the nutella French toast that I always covet but never have the guts to order. More like waking up at the crack of dawn and running around from classroom to classroom greeting this year's new little monsters.

(Though I gotta admit, it will all be worth it if I get to keep my job).

In any case, onto the good news! The weekend before my first-day-of-school-29th-birthday is San Francisco's annual Outside Lands music fest in Golden Gate Park, which includes three of my very favorite things:

music


wine


sunshine

Now I just gotta talk Lane into flying out to San Francisco that weekend to flit around in the sunshine with plastic cups of sauvignon blanc and the likes of Cat Power, Damian Marley, Kings of Leon, Amos Lee, Chromeo, Rebirth Brass Band, etc. etc. serenading us (though we'll be skipping the $395 VIP tickets . . . ).

Happy weekend!

What a great birthday present that would be! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and if you want some sunshine, I'll do my best to send you some because we've got a little too much of it here in Phoenix right now.

That sounds like a great job and sorry about your job, but hopefully you can get it back even if it means working on your birthday. I had have to work on mine the past few years. :-\

That sounds like a lot of fun! Hopefully you'll get to go!
And working on your birthday may not be so bad. Just go get the nutella french toast for dinner! You should really get it and treat yourself. :)

BTW I didn't get the 30 day shred, I got the one that advertises losing 5 pounds a week - boosting your metabolism and burning fat? We'll see. If I don't throw out my back again.

jozen said...

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

Oh wow. How exciting! And well, working on your birthday can be somewhat of a birthday present I suppose, at least you get to keep your job. And I'm sure those little monsters will be just so cute. =)

Erika said...

I would say ditch the first day of school due to your birthday; but since you're the teacher and all, I suppose that option is out of the question. Thus...you must party hard BEFORE your actual bday - and hello, a music festival is the perfect way to celebrate!! :)
