It's been a long, long, long time...

So, yeah, what’s happening, hot stuff?

I think the past three weeks have probably been the busiest three weeks of my life. Between work work (I’ve taken over a colleague’s job while she’s on maternity leave and its budget season), house work, other people’s house work, a little bit of kickball and a whole lot of other stuff, I have barely had time to read others’ blogs, let alone think about adding things to my own. Thankfully, things seem to be pretty quite around these parts, so I haven’t missed much.

To be sure, I’ve thought about things I want to write about and may get around to more substantive posts soon, but for now here’s an announcement about something else that I’ve (probably foolishly) decided to put on my plate: Some friends and I are putting together a Beatles cover band to play the Oakland Mills’ 40th birthday party on June 28. My friends are great musicians (me, I get by with a little help from them) and huge Beatles fans, so I can guarantee a great show or your money back. Seriously, you should come out – you’ll get a chance to hear some good music (there are other bands playing, too) and show some support to East Columbia’s (a.k.a. the real Columbia) oldest village.

All for now. More soon.

MKM- It is somewhat discourteous and uncivil to refer to someone online by their real name unless that is how they refer to themselves online. Just because you happen to know someone’s real name does not give you license to use it.

The people in Oakland Mills are awesome! This link came in the OM newsletter today. It is a video put together by Sandy Cederbaum, OM Village Manager and Ben Hunter, OM Community Organizer, to get people psyched for disco night.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to put on my Boogie Shoes, My My My My My, Boogie Shoes!
