grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

happy birthday jo!

Today is Jo's birthday! I woke her up with a lovely cup of coffee in a beautiful hand-made mug with a dragonfly on it that my parents sent her. Soon we are going to run errands (not much birthday fun, but we really only had $1.61 in the bank until today). We'll do anything she wants today (and she promises I can study for a few hours). They'll be berries with whipped cream later on and I'll indulge her by watching a couple old sci-fi movies that I usually would make her watch on her own (I'm not as in to them as she is). I think tomorrow my study break will be hitting a matinee of the new War of the Worlds. I usually loath remakes, but this one, and the remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory look worth it! We always check email first thing in the morning (right up there with feeding the cats and making coffee). This morning Jo got 2 emails of questions for interviews in 2 German music magazines! The questions are great and from them we can tell they did a serious amount of research on Jo and her music- which is so awesome! She is still getting great radio play, and has a live on-air interview with a radio station in Germany this week. I am so proud of her! I always said (well, I wasn't the only one who said this, but I always agreed) that her music would do so much better in Europe than here. I also googled her this morning (it is interesting to gauge success by googling) and her upcoming album, Island, is discussed all over the place- mostly in languages that google translate doesn't do a very good job with, but still it is wonderful to see her album listed along side Goldfrappe and other well-knowns. Happy birthday Jo!
