no need for and intro, let's just get it on.
friday night started with hosting my first plum dinner party series - kind of. while i cooked some delicious pad thai for my friends JV, AJP and lara i don't know if i'm going to really count it because the whole meal was really just a doctored up box meal, ha.
doesn't mean it wasn't tasty though.
the girls and i ate and drank lots of wine in preparation for our friend hartzell's 30th birthday karaoke bash at reddstone cleveland.
now while i may not karaoke, i have a group of friends who do all. the. time.
perhaps one of these day i'll actually participate but until then, i'll just take the roll of flip video recorder. the sad thing about the below video is that i know i missed so much debauchery, but between what i and my trusty co-documenters captured i think i was able to paint a nice little picture of some awesome karaoke talent....
sidenote: i'm fairly positive that if you don't know any of the people in this video you won't find it as funny as i do.
ummm yeah, is right. hysterical.
this is one song i wish i captured on my flip video - this would be range and lzone performing kris kros, jump... hence the backwards shirt which lzone is adamant on me saying that while it may appear that she is 400 pounds due to the backwards shirt in fact, she is not. obvy.

saturday i spent the majority of the morning/early afternoon in bed, it was just too cozy to leave, but canton and mother's day celebrations were calling.
first stop in canton was at my cousin's house to see my not so little cousin jenna off to prom, she looked so pretty! kids grow up so fast - i.e. i'm getting old. post prom festivities my mom, my cousin david and i headed out for dinner at my old employer don pablo's and then on to see iron man 2 which was very entertaining and i recommend it. nice little saturday if i do say so myself.
sunday, mother's day, found the usual suspects (all my family) at my cousin cathi and grog's house in north canton for a delicious brunch.
after laughing till i cried with the family i kissed my mom goodbye and drove back up to cleveland - the cavs were playing game 4 in boston (i think we all know how this one ended), so my friends and i all gathered at the clevelander to watch. this little watch party also doubled at a pre-game for the pearl jam concert at the Q.
pearl jam is one of those bands that i've been listening to for years and years but never have seen live. they put on as good of a show as i expected and eddie vedder's voice is still as sexy as all hell.
i wonder if he'd let me run my fingers through his hair. yes? no? i can't help it, the man is hot/talented/hot.
i do have one complaint about the concert though. they didn't play elderly woman behind the counter in a small town which is one of my favorite songs of all time. i may still be a little bitter, guess i'll just have to go see them again.
annnnnnnnnnd that's a wrap. i'd like to give this weekend five stars, good times kids, good times.
