weekend two, arrr matey

This past weekend was, while still moist, full of freebooters. Poachers. Raiders! Marauders. In other words, we be overrun by PIRATES!

Fun fact! The origin of the word ‘pirate’ is from the Greek peiratēs, from peirein ‘to attempt, attack’. Attempting, but not necessarily successful. Wah wah wah. Speaking of attempting to be a pirate…

God, that photo is terrible on SO MANY levels, but I am willing to post it publicly for YOUR amusement, Droopies. That’s how much I love you.

This coming weekend is the ‘silk road’ weekend, aka, belly dancers. Watch me NOT bare my midriff, cuz let’s just say some things are just better when they are out of sight. Regardless, you should join us where I will make the above face ad nauseum. At my band, mostly. If I can see them with my eyes crossed.

Molly has been hogging the spotlight since she first started playing the violin in 1988. She soon realized a life of performance and poverty is more exciting than earning a sustainable living, so she double majored in music and theater. After years of romping around at reputable places in the Twin Cities including The Minnesota Opera Chorus, Bloomington Civic Theater, and The Jungle Theater, Molly lowered her standards and gave The Dregs a try in 2010 and finally made this 'Irish' band legit with a fiddle player. Molly is going to graduate school for her masters in education to hopefully learn how she went so very wrong.
