Hip and cool

A resort area will be part of your next holiday plans.

—My Jones Cream Soda bottle cap from 16 June 2002

After church yesterday, I decided to go to a Damien Jurado show at Le Pichet downtown (where my friend Brent is a chef). Upon arriving, I discovered that another friend, Josh, was playing bass, then ended up at the bar between yet another friend, Elisa, and Jen and Chris, the owners of Victrola. Apparently I have a hip, well-connected life and didn't even know about it. Enjoyed the show with a scotch, feeling very hip and cool.

Yes, I am very hip and cool indeed.

Hip or no, I was wiped out by the time I arrived home. Ordered a Pagliacci pizza, was blessed with good company via instant message, and turned in a bit early. Unfortunately I didn't sleep well through the night, so this morning finds me a bit weary. Even so, it was a good Sunday, and tomorrow is a day off.

Besides, my Abba is very fond of me.


What's the deal with Jones Soda? I'd never heard of it before Cornerstone Festival, and now, from you....
Sometimes you just jones for a Jones.

(I hadn't heard of it prior to locating in the Pacific Northwest, but I think it spread cross-country with skater/sk8r/extreme/xtreme culture.)
