Jones New York is leaving Canada and all their stores are in liquidation. I hadn’t bothered going until today when I was going to another store nearby and saw the 80-90% off and last 6 days sign. The store was almost empty but amazingly much of the stuff that was left was my size! It was very odd that most of the stuff left was either size 2 or size 22, but I wasn’t complaining since I wear a 22. The didn’t have much for shirts, but had a ton of jeans, some pants, cardigans, and some dresses. So I got a haul of 9 items for a total of $70! Two cardigans, a black dress, two pairs of pants, and four pairs of jeans. Score!
Our previous crochet instructor left and I am now the crochet instructor for the Michaels store where I work. My first class got cancelled because nobody had signed up for it, so now take two. This class will go whether anyone signs up or not since it is a free class scheduled by the home office. Even though it isn’t crochet, I got assigned it since it is a “yarn class”. The project is to make a pillow out of a tote bag with painted accents and yarn stitching and tassels. It isn’t a bad looking pillow, but I can’t imagine anyone wanting to pay for all the supplies to make it. It took about 3 hours to make, with most of the time spent laying out the template with masking tape and painting the silver lines. If nobody comes to make it, I will spend the 2 hours sitting and working on a project of my own and helping anyone who has questions.
Duran Duran was at Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto tonight and they put on a wonderful show. They did a few new songs from Paper Gods plus a lot of their big hits starting with Wild Boys and Hungry Like the Wolf, and finishing off with Rio. They still have it and I recommend this show to anyone who is a fan. Combined with Chic and Nile Rodgers (who wrote songs for Duran Duran and came out to play with them for Notorious) it was a really enjoyable evening. Below are some better photos from my camera instead of the phone.
Here is a list of the songs from the show in order: Paper Gods, Wild Boys, Hungry Like the Wolf, A View To A Kill, Come Undone, Last Night In The City, What Are The Chances, Notorious, Pressure Off, Planet Earth / Space Oddity, Ordinary World, I Don’t Want Your Love, White Lines, Sunrise / New Moon On Monday, The Reflex, Girls on Film, Save A Prayer, Rio
They put on and excellent show doing their big hits like Le Freak and Good Times, but also a ton of songs he wrote for others that went to #1 or were big hits like “I’m Coming Out” and “We Are Family” and “Let’s Dance” that he wrote with David Bowie. Very enjoyable and high energy set.
Here are a couple of better shots from my camera. The second one was during “Good Times” when they brought a bunch of audience members on stage for a disco party.
I am in my seat and waiting for the concert to start at 7pm. It will be Duran Duran with Chic opening. I got a really nice seat and can’t wait!
