Are you taking a vacation this summer (or this season)?  Where are you headed and who's going with you?

we are going to portland, seattle, santa rosa, mammoth and maui in the next few months. plus hopefully a fun los angles weekend for dinner, disneyland and family.

clothes! today i wore my pink vox t shirt! yesterday i had on a simple red t with a tiny little pocket. wednesday i wore a baby pink h&m t with a brown nest tank from doe. tuesday i wore my sweats all day, we had gym class so i had on my dark blue nike sweats and an amy tangerine 'go' t. monday i had on a button up that i got in portland when i was shopping with lydia. and if your reading this lydia, i don't think i'm going to keep it. it feels a little too bit costumey-rock-a-billy to me. and i've also worn my marc by marc jacobs red thermal with blue flowers on it and my love all creatures great and small t this week.

What are the 10 most memorable music performances you've seen? (Remember, "memorable" may not be good.) 
Submitted by Bill

in no particular order…

1. i remember falling asleep at a dinosaur junior show at a club in seattle
2. seeing tori amos for the first time at the moore theater in seattle, little earthquakes era
3. tori again, seeing her with lydia, in seattle and i was just hoping hoping hoping for her to sing "song for eric" she
    pulled it out for the last encore and i cried. and to top it off, the song before my silently requested song was tori's
    cover of "a case of you" by joni mitchell
4. dancing on stage with ben lee at a sf show
5. front row in the pit, tori again, and meeting her after in her dressing room
6. elvis costello  in sf.  wow
7.  tori again in los angeles.  andy and i were in the pit and it was just recently after we had met her and i will swear
     until i die that she spotted us, we had a moment there and she did a small improve and yes, i was weeping, cause  i'm a big dork and felt like it was for me.
8. soundgarden with lydia, ooooooo crazy fun and we went backstage after and got our passes signed
9. rufus wainwright at the fillmore. ben lee opened and i fell in love and rufus was amazing.
10. my countless tori shows are all so special to me, some more than others and really any show at largo in la is so
     andy and i saw louden wainwright there, tom brosseau, bill frisell and andy's been there many more times then
     me.

tori's touring again this year! yippee!
