Today I called in sick to the office (makes a coughing noise) but for real I am under the weather and feeling run down. I also had to keep my streak going over the last month for various reasons I have not had a week where I worked a whole week m-f straight thru. One of the main reasons for taking today off is that we have got some fun plans this weekend and I don't want to miss out.
Tonight we are headed to GCP [Greater Cleveland Public Officials] Reception @ Windows on the River (Editor's Note: Thanks to Allison for bringing this to our attention, since I had previously typed GPC. Perhaps I might have mis-typed because there are cigs called GPC, not that I smoke though). It is a great party if you ever get to go -- don't miss out on a great chance to see a lot of movers and shakers in politics here in Cleveland & North East Ohio & the hors d'oeuvres are always top notch.
Tomorrow we are going to go meet up with CB & head over to MOCA for Artscape 2008 (the reception is actually tonight but tomorrow it is free from 11-5pm. We went last year and it is a great place to go and support local artists while finding the perfect unique gift for the holidays. After that I am sure we will probably end up at a bar.
Sunday we are heading to the BROWNS game to watch (in the lodge) them take on the Texans :) I hope Brady's finger does not impact his ability to throw the ball anymore than his arm and the wind already do.
Lastly, this is completely unrelated, but I had to share this really cool f*cking video from Mason Proper who hail from Michigan. The video for their great song "Lock & Key is up for indie video of the year for MTV2's Subterranean. It shot by none other than local director Don Tyler who shot it in downtown Cleveland in and around Huron Street. As I was watching it I was thinking that it really looked like Cleveland and then when I saw that the guy in the video walked by AIA Cleveland I knew it was our fair city.
