On January 9th, 2010 I rolled across the border from Oklahoma in to Texas.
That means that we’re just over a week from my six month anniversary in the state of Texas. My first thought was to spend July 9th, 2010 quietly drinking myself in to oblivion. Then I realized it would be a hell of a lot more fun to noisily drink myself in to oblivion.
After that I decided it would be even better to skip the “drink myself in to oblivion” part. So I’ve decided I’m going to have a party.
I’m affectionately referring to the plan as the “Six Months in Hell” party.
This plan is still in its infancy, but the basic outline is this: I want to get everyone I know in the general Dallas area together (well, y’know, everyone I know that I like. And that can make it). I’m also a lazy, lazy bum, so I have a strong desire to do as little actual work as possible.
Fortunately, it appears as though the Lost Immigrants may have helped me solve that problem.
The Lost Immigrants, as you may or may not know, are not only my favorite Dallas-based band, they’re also the only Dallas-based band that I know of. And they’re doing a show on the 23rd at the White Elephant Saloon in Fort Worth and another on the 30th at the Tap-In Grill in Grapevine.
I’m thinking this: July 30th, Geds’s “Six Months in Hell” party at the Tap-In Grill in Grapevine. With far more interesting entertainment provided by the Lost Immigrants, because I’m not actually all that cool.
Also, it will be 103% vuvuzela-free.
And just for y'all:
