how friday nights usually go

"crash friday" is our running joke about the fact that I can never manage to stay up past 9 on the fifth day of a work week, even if the rest of the world is out partying, it's pretty bad.

this was final friday, the last friday of the month when wichita opens all its art galleries and there's lots of great stuff going on downtown. marc and josie went out, he was going to dj a bit outside at old town square for the fire spinners and josie loves the fire spinners. they'll even drop in at a cafe and she'll get a sprite with cherries and an umbrella. so yup, my four year old goes out on friday night, I do not.

I got stuck at work friday until almost 7, got home and ate dinner with everybody, then hung out with olive so marc and josie could go have fun. I half made some calls to see if someone would watch her so I could go out and meet other friends for final friday but lost motivation entirely. Olive and I had a good time anyway. I gave her a bath, we played with toys, and read a big stack of books.

last week we gave her crib away and she switched to a toddler bed, and she's been great with it. she's got a little light up pillow pet that projects stars up on the wall. I told her to go to bed, put her blanket on her, walked out. I heard her pushing the buttons on her unicorn changing its colors. then I didn't. she was out. I think I was asleep five minutes later. kinda blinked when marc and josie got home at 11 but went right back to sleep.

friday night party, yeah!

saturday I had to work for a few hours, but was ready to escape around two, and marc said he and the girls were at another museum for another dance party. they know how to find these! it was at the wichita art museum, totally free, kids were running around with streamers and dj carbon was mixing house beats with "let it go" in a very accommodating way.

he played taylor swift - shake it off and all afternoon after we got home josie was spinning around singing "that's what people say! mm mmm! shake it off! shake it off!" and marc was CRINGING. just to be awful I played it off youtube for her. I was like hey, every kid has to listen to the wrong kind of music just to piss off her parents eventually, right? josie's almost five. it's about time!

I told him, don't you want to make her a cd of it? if she's going to listen to it we'd rather her listen to it here at home where she's safe.

he was just like, dammit.

he also explains that she loved the dubstep way too much the night before. we are both against dubstep. just, losing her too soon.

I think I'm kinda heading towards being that guy.

Of course, people were saying a lot of the same things about house and techno music lo those many years ago...

I was watching Ultra Live on twitch this weekend and am surprised how much better techno acts are. Carl Cox was a beast on the decks, but you know he is a legend anyway; a six figure act.

House has now morphed into ElectroHouse and now "Big Room" house a la festivals and stadiums.

What concerns me is this pop creep. The rap creep was like...eh whatever, but I am afraid over the next three years that hip hop, EDM and pop are all going to meld together into something different, and not a bad good way.

Good to hear I'm not the only one who is just totally tired on Friday evenings.

If it's any consolation to you, Friday nights are usually early to bed nights for me as well. Many of our friends are retired now and we are the only two still working. By the time Friday gets here, we are both wiped. We always says that it's another wild night at our place...

Hey I get the wild and crazy Friday nights you have. The other weekend my friend was like lets actually go out and do something. So we grabbed dinner, and then went to the bar. We had one beer each and we're just exhausted. We ended up leaving. As we were walking out to the car I laughed and said, "We're then youngest ones in the bar tonight and we're leaving by 9:30 cause we're tired." Everyone else was probably 40/50 and up and getting real crazy (aka tipsy). I'm all right with being a tired not old / but old lady. I work my bum off all week. Sleep is nice. haha

Ah yes... for some, it's TGIF, for others, it's more OGIF.
