I’ve had my head so far up my ass that, seriously, I forgot about Valentine’s Day.
And so like I do for every holiday that involves showing my love and devotion to my schmoopy, I am scrambling to come up with something to give J.
I do have ONE THING up my sleeve: during a trip to Austin last year, J found a Johnny Cash album from the late fifties/early sixties, still in really amazing condition (I can’t remember now what year, nor can I find the album now online to show you, but it’s pretty fucking cool).
Anyway, it has been in a plastic bag on a shelf in our office for nearly a year, along with another vintage rockabilly album – we bought them not really knowing what to do with them. So I’m going to take them to Aaron Brothers after work to see about getting them framed. I have no idea how much something like that will cost, nor do I know, if it requires custom framing, if there is enough time to get it done by Saturday. I’m really hoping it works out, because I think he’ll really dig it, and you should know that J is SO HARD to shop for, because he never wants anything but car parts.
Do you guys have plans for the weekend?
I finally remembered the album: Johnny Cash Sings: The Songs That Made Him Famous – it’s one of the original of the 1958 release from Sun Records.
The other album is Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and his Comets, a 1955 Decca recording.
