Monday Brain Dump: Weekend Recap

Friday: scored last minute tickets to see one of my favorite bands Jack’s Mannequin play a secret show at the Viper Room. At first I was kind of iffy about the new album but it’s totally grown on me. Seeing them live always reinforces my love for the band as well. Andrew totally rocks out on the stage live and puts so much feeling into his music. He also did a cover of MGMT’s Kids…which I didn’t recognize at the time because it sounded so different with his voice! Cool though!

Saturday: Saw my parents who are in town and visited my grandfather in the nursing home for the first time. :( It was really depressing. He has early stages of Alzheimer’s so they couldn’t take care of him at home anymore. Another reminder of how much I don’t want to grow old!!!! After that, headed back to W. LA. We ate at Souplantation (blueberry muffins!!!!) for dinner and saw someone famous! Sam Jones III. You don’t think you know him but YOU DO:

It’s Pete from Smallville!!!

Then we rented Rocket Science where I developed a tiny crush on Nicholas D’Agosto. I forgot that he was on Heroes. I remember when he was on that show I thought he looked NOT cute and actually kind of weird but in this movie he was really, really cute. Anyways, I think most people will think the movie was boring and not that great but I thought it was amusing/entertaining. If you liked Rushmore or other quirky movies, you might like it too.

Sunday: Spent the whole day with my parents. My dad changed my oil (dad=best car mechanic in the world!). Celebrated my little cousin Jadon’s birthday. He turned 5. He’s sooo adorable! Love my family. The night ended with some yummy shaved ice from Boba Time. If you love shaved ice you have to try the one here. They add coffee to it and TONS of fresh fruit. It’s the best! (Just a small disclaimer that out of the 50 times I have been here one time I went the boba was very soggy and gross. Normally it’s the perfect consistency though!)

I thought Rocket Science was boooooring, but it had some good moments.

I’ve been pretty iffy about Jack’s new album too…I’m still trying to decide if it’s worth going to his concert here in Austin.
