I enjoyed this frigid day antiquing with my mom. I love buying things that have a story. It may be a story I am unaware of because it belonged to a previous owner, or one I create because I purchase it somewhere unique. I know that I should not take too much value in material things, but there are memories attached to my possessions. This is why there is a little bit of a hoarder in me. When I look at my side table or my DVD cabinet, or any other item I bought at a special location, I think of who I was with and the enjoyment that I had finding these prized pieces. I guess I'm cursed with a little bit of nostalgia.
Today is a two-parter. I also took a picture of the Egyptian Theatre because Gaelic Storm is coming. They are the group that plays in the movie Titanic on the lower level. I met them a few years ago when they came to O'Leary's after a show. I don't remember much about them because they showed up towards the end of the evening and I was past my prime, but seeing the sign brought back some memories. I wonder if they were disappointed to find that O'Leary's was not a very Irish Pub.
