Turns out they just wanted a little break and they hadn't visited in a long time. So that's cool. Talking to her last night she told me that my cousins, Amy and Karen have a band/act/something. She wasn't sure what the hell it was.
Go listen if you like acoustic "girl rock" kind of stuff. (I'm looking at you, Alicia).
I knew that they'd both gone through school for music studies but never really kept up with it. I'm about as in touch and current with my extended family as I am with people I was buddies with 5 years ago. Which is probably one of those things I should fix but never ever do/will.
