Corinne Bailey Rae has the voice of an angel

Today I got to do something really special. The Girl and I got to go to a private concert featurnig Corinne Bailey Rae. She is just beginning a US tour and played a small venue in Boston this evening. Corinne is from Leeds England, and she has been getting really amazing press both overseas and here in the US. Her voice is enchanging and I think she's poised to take over the American music scene. She sings with an amazing confidence like a real British R&B chanteuse. She almost stops time with her presence. Can you tell I love her music?

Not only did we get to see a concert with less than 50 people in attendance, we also got a free IPod. Someone was VERY excited to get this new toy. For the Girl, what surprised her most was that there was a lot of free food. She's really interesting. Things she would never put in her mouth at home, in a bar with free food, she's scarfing it down.

And.... her favorite store in our town has a warehouse store right next door to the venue and she was absolutely in bliss checking out the merchandise. Bargains galore, people. T'shirts were $5, designer jeans were $25-39. Big name stuff, too.

What did you do tonight?

What a fun day! I've never heard of this singer. I'll have to check her out - perhaps on iTunes! Hope you're having a great day!

Michele sent me today!

Here from Michele.

Tonight, not so much.
Yesterday. Another story.
Took some stuff up to the girl at W&M and ended up moving the desk to where the chest was and the chest to where the desk was; putting together a futon; helping with bulletin boards, unpacked boxes and re-arranged the room, vacuumed, carted chairs, carted boxes back to Va Bch. Got home at 11 PM. Slept in.
Still sore.
