Wilco (The Concert)

Folk-Roots or Alt-Country or Edge-Rock, there really isn't a way to categorize Wilco, so why bother when you can listen to them!

I got to listen to them live on Tuesday night at the Jubilee (the twin of Edmonton's Jubilee as Wilco mentioned after their opening band Califone did too). Lucky me!

Wilco proved that they can play amazing music generating huge sound on some of the more experimental numbers like Bull Black Nova from their most recent album to some sweet melody like on Jesus, Etc. which they let the audience sing until the middle of verse 2.


UtHC becomes Simple Bites

Head on over to my friend Aimée's new website and follow some instructions to win over $500 worth of kitchen stuff. Inspired to start blogging by yours truly, chef-turned-mom Aimée has built up quite the great following on her blog Under the High Chair and on Twitter.

I've known Aimée since we lived in Montréal and I've been following her foodie blog since 2006. She and her family visited us last summer and she cooked us a sensuous feast.


Impaling the Wazoo

Truly, I'm overinsured!

. . . at home
I have car insurance: $132/mo
I have contents insurance: $13/mo
I have fire insurance: $75/mo
I have life insurance: $57/mo
I have health insurance: (our socialist system at work)

. . . at school
I have disability insurance: $74
I have employment insurance: $82
I have more life insurance: $4
I have more medical insurance: $17

What could possibly go wrong? In fact, I'm paying nearly as much for insurance as I am for food these days to ensure nothing will go wrong.
