Vinyl Monday: Xanadu.

I love Xanadu more than any other movie ever. It's the film equivalent of this blog, I think; a little over the top, a little kitschy, and a lot of roller skating! Who could ask for more?


Last week brought us a few sketchy thunderstorms that ripped trees out of the ground while amazing us with tons of colored lightening. Unfortunately it also knocked out most of the electricity in the area (there are still quite a few people out here without AC or running water). 

When we finally made it back home I thought my hamster, Gus, had died of heatstroke. I went to check on him and he was laying on his back. I ran out of the studio crying, so Dave went in to see for sure. Turns out that he was just really hot. Did you know that a hamster can sweat? He rolled over and ate a little rodent treat and he was just fine. Phew! I've had him for quite a few years now, and I would be devastated to lose the lil' guy.

Other than that, our personal experience with the apocalyptic storm wasn't really that awful. No trees fell on our house, all of our belongings stayed put and the animals just got a little warm. NBD, right?

So, we're back to regularly scheduled blogging this week!

Tomorrow, I've got orientation at my new school. I'm hoping to take a ton of pictures, so I can share everything with all of you. I'm kind of excited. Send me good vibes!

What have you lovely folks been up to? Tell me everything!!!

Xanadu combines two of my favorite things: rollerskating and ELO. I love me some ELO!
