Okay. I just have to say that Jim from the band Kid, You’ll Move Mountains has got to be one of the nicest people ever on the face of the earth (and I’m not just saying this because his band is great even though they are). Let me explain… I’ve seen KYMM live and met Jim in person exactly once. That’s it. We’ve exchanged all sorts of electronic communications (email, Twitter, Facebook, etc…) but have only met in person once despite both living in Chicago’s Western suburban wasteland. Considering that I’m floored that he has offered White Sox tickets, an invitation to his 4th of July party, and now (get your kleenex ready) “replacement” cats.
For those of you who actually read this blog, you know that lost both of our cats (Indie and Ollie) in the last month or so and it hasn’t been the easiest thing in the world for us. I got a message from Jim the other day saying that Nate and Nina (from KYMM) had a kitten (or maybe two) that they would be willing to give away and that he mentioned to them that we might be interested. Seriously, the cats are adorable and (especially after seeing the pictures) it was hard to pass but we aren’t ready yet. But really, I didn’t know that there were people this thoughtful and nice. So this is just “Thanks Jim,” for being such a nice guy… and for having a great band. Check out this post and their album Loomings for some seriously good music.
